    Call for contributors: LIS career options book

    Following up on a previous message - thanks for the input that I received! - I'm editing a book for Bloomsbury Libraries Unlimited in which MLS grads in a wide variety of careers/organizations/locations will share career experiences and advice with future information professionals.   I want to include a wide variety of job types and organization types (including non-traditional, outside of librarianship).  The tone should be candid, conversational, and practical, as if you're having coffee with someone who'd like to learn more about what you do and how they might get there.  I'm filling in some gaps, so if you are interested in being considered as a contributor, please message me or email priscilla.shontz.lis@gmail.com with the info below (or with any questions or suggestions you might have).   Please also pass the word along to others who might be interesting additions to the book. Thank you!
