    Great Read for Those Considering a Career in Library & Info Science

    This book is packed with information about careers in the Library and Information Science field. It includes information about specific jobs as well as the education requirements for each position. I thought the appendix was especially useful; it includes a list of websites for colleges that have Library Science programs and professional societies. I highly recommend this book.
