RB: Cataloging, a career of fun!

I’m not really RT (Re-Tweeting) but I guess I’m RB (Re-Blogging)? 

Cataloging is an awesome career choice!  Christine Schwartz of Cataloging Futures posted “Cataloging, the cool job” linking to two great posts about being a cataloger. Smithsonian Special Collections Cataloger Diane Shaw’s “What It’s Like to Be a Cataloger” is fantastic. The comments add to the discussion and expand into library school information. Christine also points out an article by Richard A. Murray, The Whimsy of Cataloging – which made me want to go work at Duke (I can already sing all the parts to “The Lonely Goatherd”!).

And to help you in interviews to obtain this cool career, Laurel Tarulli of The Cataloguing Librarian posted “Interviewing for a Cataloguing Position: The Two-way Street”“. Brilliant information and don’t neglect the comments – even if I did post something that reads as patronizing, I didn’t mean it to be! I meant more along the lines of even when you think you have researched everything before you go for the interview, be sure to look at these and have some good, targeted questions on hand to ask your interviewers.

    Hey Carol – thanks for the “RB”! And no, your comment didn’t read as patronizing at all!

    Thanks Laurel, but I thought it did on re-read still, LOVE the questions!
    Oh! I bet if we all start using “RB” it’ll be come a standard term. Oh let’s do it! I’ve dreamt of creating language (call me Tolkien)

    I’ll use it in an upcoming post and we’ll see how it spreads. I thought it was clever! 😉
