The new IT girl

When I entered library school, I knew how to use a computer; when I left library school, I loved and adored them. I immediately sprang into a second program that I could use to learn how to teach with technology, combining two loves, that I was so glad I could meet with in librarianship.

If you love the tech, there are plenty of careers for a librarian; there are also plenty of regular "books 'n' bricks" library jobs that need the ability to jiggle the cord. IT World Canada has an article on tech careers that you never dreamed of, and though "librarian" isn't a job title, many of these jobs are jobs that techy librarians can and will do, especially if they perceive themselves on a management track.
