Course Description

This course is designed for library workers who would like a structured approach to exploring other career paths that would value the skills they have built in their library careers. We develop a wealth of transferable skills working in libraries and in library science education, but we’re not always taught how to effectively communicate how those skills apply to other fields.

Whether you are a recent graduate who has struggled to find traditional library openings in a difficult budget climate or an experienced librarian wondering what other options may be out there, this course will provide a structured space to explore:

  • What options are out there that match our skill sets
  • Strategies for learning more about fields you may be interested in
  • Learning to translate your skills for non-library audiences

The teaching philosophy of this course will be built on a group coaching model, guiding you through the process of exploring your options and enabling you to reach the answer that is right for you.
