Review:

"...a useful, engaging guide for those considering a career as an information professional. Drawing on their extensive experience in information science higher education, the authors map out the many and diverse options for information professionals...Highly recommended." --CHOICE Magazine, December 2010

"There are few books in the information field that contain information that is as cutting edge and helpful as that provided in this book. Certainly, every employed records manager should own and read it." --Information Management, January/February 2011

"This book provides great references...that students can pursue to be successful...The profiles of professionals in the field are incredibly useful..." --NACADA, February 2011

"Lawson, Kroll, and Kowatch have given us an updated career guide that accepts and assumes library science's transformation to information professionals, and they have written an easy-to-use career guide reference for career counselors and new graduates...This book is recommended as a useful resource for recruitment to the information profession in all college career centers and for library and information science graduate progream collections, as well as an introduction to the possibilities of the profession for individuals considering the master of library and information science degree." --Journal of the Medical Library Association, October 2011

From Booklist:

Thanks to the information revolution, librarianship is evolving beyond its historical roles. In this volume, the authors, all affiliated with the University of Michigan School of Information, identify eight career work sectors in the fast-growing field of information: archives and preservation, records management, library and information services, human-computer interaction, social computing, information systems management, information policy, and information analysis and retrieval. Each chapter includes an overview and specific “tracks,” skills and abilities, professional roles, occupational outlook, salary information, sample profiles, and resources. Two-page career maps show education (including relevant course work), internships, career titles, and industry areas. The focus is primarily on careers outside the traditional library setting. Although the perspective is uneven, the book can provide interesting ideas for students who like to work with information. --Susan Gooden
