Humanities PhDs at Work: Career Paths in Librarianship. Video Online.

Back in September, my colleagues and I gave a talk at UF entitled: “Humanities PhDs at Work: Career Paths in Librarianship.” Our talk was filmed and the video is now available online.

As a reminder, here is the description of the talk:

Hélène Huet, Megan Daly, and Jessica Aberle are assistant librarians at the George A. Smathers Libraries. Though each presenter received a doctorate from their respective fields in the Humanities, Huet, Daly, and Aberle all chose to transition into the field of librarianship. If you are curious about the work that librarians undertake and whether a career in an academic library might be a good fit for you, this presentation will offer guidance. They will speak about their roles in the library and provide a brief overview of their work, followed with a discussion of their different career trajectories and the hurdles they encountered along the way. Then they will explain their decisions to pursue librarianship and why they love their work. Finally, they will provide resources and advice to those interested in libraries, archives, and information science.

Hello everyone,

As announced during the second GSRS session last week, due to the disruption caused by this Thursday’s controversial speaker we have decided to change the schedule for the final two GSRS sessions. Here is the new schedule:

Session 3: Building Scholarly Knowledge in Your Field                Thursday, October 26, 1:55-2:45 pm (Period 7)  Room 212 Library West

Session 4: Tips for Writing and Effective Scholarly Paper          Wednesday, November 1, 1:55-2:45 pm (Period 7)  Room 212 Library West

Please note the day change (from Thursday to Wednesday) for Session 4.

Hope to see you on the 26th.
