Librarians find niches and roles in agencies throughout the federal government. Federal libraries serve many agencies and hold a wide variety of opportunities for LIS grads, but LIS skills can take you beyond the walls of traditional libraries in the federal government.
Hear firsthand from current federal librarians as they describe their careers in the federal government. Learn about various federal agencies and the opportunities there for LIS grads, the top skills needed for students coming out of library school, and their advice for librarians looking for jobs in the federal government.
Join us either in person or via live webcast.
Interviews will include librarians at the Census Bureau, Department of State, Army Research Laboratory and MORE!
