Welcome to the job posting section of blogMLS! All jobs that are e-mailed to the MLS Program are posted here. Jobs include positions in libraries, archives, the government, corporate offices, museums, etc. Our goal is to collate the job postings we receive on the library listservs. There are many other resources available to help with your job search.
