Routes into Librarianship

Routes into Librarianship - Graduate traineeships, Masters Degrees, Chartership, Accreditation

Not really relevant for me personally, but lots of useful information to pass on to others thanks.
I more or less drifted into the job I am in right now, making use of my interests and skills I had picked up.  I had worked in the University Library on a very part-time basis for many years while bringing up my children.  During the years when I did not choose to work day-time and rely on child-minders etc I attended classes to, among other things, improve my IT skills.  When my circumstances were different I moved from Customer Services within the library to Academic Support.  Over the years I have watched the profession change to the extent it is almost unrecognisable from when I started, though this of course is covered in detail by many, many others.  

Right now I am in a fairly new and very varied post, giving support to the Academic Support Librarians and working on Academic Service Development, and am feeling rather drowned in the wealth of really useful tools and information out there, hence am taking part in this programme to see how others in a similar situation are handling it.

So after covering this briefly  I will skip straight on to the next thing - Mentoring!  Here goes....  Now, can I work out how to continue on the new Blogger interface?  Yep, there is the Publish button - here goes!
