Listed as a helpful tool, within my LS 534 course schedule, was the link to the Medical Library Association’s Career Center page. I recently became a student member of the association and have found their website, in it’s entirety to be a great resource for those of us MLIS students interested in the medical librarianship realm!
Shortly after I decided medical librarianship was the direction I would like my career to move, I started reaching out to my current colleagues and found that many of them had contacts whom I could learn from. On MLA’s Career Center page, an important tip for those interested in the field is to network. You never know in whom or where you will find a mentor, they could even be within your current professional circle – put the word out about your interest and desire to learn more, doing just that will often provide you more information and connections than you thought!
I have copied the link below to the Career Center, for those interested in checking it out 🙂
