The Status of the Art Librarian Workforce: A Survey of Professional Backgrounds and Career Choices
Speaker: Eamon Tewell, Reference Librarian, Sarah Lawrence College
Is there such thing as a ‘typical’ career path for art librarians? What common threads beyond workplace setting unite art librarians as a distinct profession? This presentation discusses the results of an international survey of art library workers, including: motivation for selecting the profession, educational background, current employment, and professional experiences. Reviewing the preparation and job experiences of other practitioners in art librarianship allows us all to benefit from a deeper knowledge of the current state of the profession.
