Guardian MA Librarianship feature

January 24th, 2009

I contributed to the feature on taking a master’s in Librarianship in the Guardian today, talking a little bit about what it’s like to be a student in the field. You can find it in the Graduate section. It’s trailered on the front page of the section (which is the back page of the Work section) as ‘Sssh! Taking a master’s in librarianship’ but aside from the unfortunate ssh reference I think it represents us quite well. I’m bemused that I’m the only person who mentioned it’s not that easy to get a job in the field, but of course, they only took a tiny quote from each interview they did for each section (I’m sure I blathered on far more than that in the phone interview!).
