ALIA RAIS VIC - The Switch: How to Successfully Cross-Over Library Sectors

Primary tabs

Are you stuck in a rut within your own library sector and looking for a change?
Do you want a career in a particular library sector but do not know how to get there?
Public, Academic, School, Law, or Special library sectors – there are many to choose from but how do you get into one;
and is there any truth in the rumour that once you gain work in one sector, you cannot change over to another?

Our speakers will share their experiences and provide some great advice on how to successfully cross-over library sectors.
