Job Searching: Library and Information Studies
Aside from libraries, there are many settings in which someone with a MSIS can be employed. The Dewey Library has a wide collection of resources for job seeking by Information Studies students and alumni.
The Library and Information Studies research guide has a tab on Employment that provides many email subscription lists, job listing websites and other useful resources for obtaining jobs listings. In addition, take a look at the Associations tab because many professional associations maintain job listings and other professional development and career seeking resources.
