The Accidental Systems Librarian



I was surfing a bit last night and came across this site by librarian and author Rachel Singer Gordon:

The Accidental Systems Librarian


I knew of this title from CIL this year as well as I've e-mailed every once in awhile with Rachel because her book for ALA and my book for Neal Schuman came out around the same time in 2001. This lead me to her TOC page that is also chock-full-of-links to Tons of good stuff for librarians in the IT world or dealing with it.

Her take: if you have been thrown into Systems Librarianship or one day woke up and said "Hey, I'm a Systems Librarian" this book (and that page of links) is for you. It includes links to competencies, training, Web development, etc....

I have a copy on order at SJCPL....can't wait to read it!
