This book is divided into five sections, beginning with an orientation to academic librarianship and ending with the search for one’s second professional position. The descriptive section titles tell the reader exactly what to expect from each part, and they deliver on their promises. Librarians or MLIS students short on time will benefit from the many “Try This” sections scattered throughout every chapter. These include short lists of action steps the reader can take.
