So I've heard enough about blogging from Greg Schwartz ("Open Stacks" fame) to finally get in on it myself. Why now? Mostly to find if other "workforce librarians" exist out there.

Despite my eyebrow-raising occupation title, I really am a reference librarian with a focus on seeking out and developing career resources to help patrons of the library. Teaching patrons to find jobs online, providing resume assistance, developing links with other organizations around the community and finding out better resources are all part of my ever-evolving (mutating) job description.

This blog is an attempt to share resources and programming ideas with other people who might consider themselves "workforce librarians".
