Thing 20 - The Library Routes Project
I have added my entry to the Library Routes Project. Reading through some of the other librarians linked there is very interesting. It looks as though I have taken a fairly typical route for other mothers out there - university degree, children, part-time library work, light-bulb moment, post-grad library qualification, full-time librarian. Advice for new librarians - never stop learning; take advantage of any opportunities, new ideas and technologies that come along; read about your new profession, especially if you want to specialise in a particular area, find a mentor and listen carefully to those people who show an interest in you and your career.
