BiblioTemps Presents: We're All Librarians Here: How to Stop Talking Yourself Out of Things You Can Do
Are you a public library worker looking to move into academia? Or an academic library worker looking to try things out on the public side? In this talk, I'll help you see that you are most likely in a better place than you think to move your skills from one type of library job to another. Based on my own experience changing jobs from a state agency to public libraries to an academic directorship, we'll explore the common ground of different library types and the basics to know when specifically moving from public libraries to academia (or vice versa).
