Can some body give me some direction?
I so want to work in a library setting, but getting my foot in the door seems to be VERY hard.
I wish to continue to get a MLS, but not if I cannot even get started.
Does any one have some advice sites to look at that deal with these types of employment or what?
Thanks for any of those who help!
