From Booklist:

Ferguson has added another title in its fine Career Opportunities series. This one covers more than 70 jobs, including many that exist outside traditional libraries. The jobs stretch into the field of information sciences, which not only include librarianship but also archival work, publishing, information management, database development, and information retrieval. The volume is organized into three main sections, “Library Science,” “Information Science,” and “Education,” each including various categories of careers. Each career profile contains a summary of salary range, prerequisites, career ladder, and special skills. The major part of the profile discusses salary, employment prospects, advancement prospects, education and training, and more. Four appendixes provide lists of educational institutions, periodicals, directories, associations. The “Industry Outlook” in the fore matter gives a helpful view of what to expect in the future and should be read by any information professional. Dissecting the industry in many different ways, this guide is recommended for any library’s professional collection as well as career reference section. Also available as an e-book. --Jerry Carbone
