Library job postings are often dominated by an overwhelming list of duties and qualifications.
We discuss a lot of aspects of librarianship that we aren?t prepared for before that first professional position. Likewise, managing a library always seemed like something that one works towards, slowly building skills: instruction, collection development, management, and so on. But what about when your first position requires all of these skills?
My first contract was a solo librarian position in a departmental library. This was a major challenge but also the best into-the-deep-end learning experience.
