How may we best help you?
- Community Connections
- Locate scholarship, grant and internship information
- Attend a conference
If your city has even been taken over by swarms of people speaking in library jargon, it's likely that it was a national, regional or state library association conference. By attending, you may learn more about current issues, talk to employers from other areas of the country, and meet a large range of exhibitors who offer services and products to libraries. Conference information can often be found on library association websites linked on a variety of places on LibraryCareers.org. You may wish to contact the association to learn if attendance would be valuable for you. Some even offer grants and orientation sessions for first-time attendees.
