February 21st, 2009

Just a quick post because I haven’t seen this anywhere else, to say is featuring a profile of Katherine Reedy, Learning and Teaching Librarian from the Open University. I think this a really good example of a job where librarianship has changed a lot, with the Open University catering so heavily for distance learners. It sounds like just the kind of job I’d love to do, and I’m pleased she mentioned LILAC – it’s given me another positive view on attending.

I was actually quite startled to find out that a lot of the alumni who came to our recent careers’ evening had started applying for jobs around this time of year, so I’m checking job sites a bit more thoughtfully at this stage. However, it’s important to be realistic about how far I can travel from Nottingham, and while a couple of jobs I’d love are kicking around, there’s been nothing in the right region so far.

    Good luck for the job search. It’s tough on everyone this year, I think, what with the credit crunch and all. *keeps fingers crossed* And w00t for you attending LILAC!
