SFPUL: Library Career Panel
This final SFPUL event of the spring invites four representatives of PUL’s various divisions to share their professional experiences, address audience questions, and give advice about joining the library sector. Attendees will have the chance to pose targeted questions about the nature of working in a library, the range of library jobs available, the kinds of skills and qualifications employers seek out, and the state and future of the field.
