Library Day in the Life

Round 4 of Library Day in the Life is today.  Begun by Bobbi Newman 2008, it allows anyone working in a library to post, either to their blog or on twitter, about what they do all day.  For library school students such as myself or people who are thinking about going to library school, this allows us to see what different types of librarians there are and what they do.

Syracuse University MSLIS students are lucky in that our first required course has two or three alumni speakers each week, discussing what they with their library degree.  It shows us the multitude of options available and gives us recommendations for internships and courses to take.  Reading items like Library Day in the Life and the book A Day in the Life: Career Options in Library and Information Science by Richard Murray and Priscilla K. Shontz also give this type of assistance.  I look forward to participating in a future round once I work in a library.
