Thoughts on Career Path

Thankfully, after completing the last few assignments, I have made some decisions about certain aspects of academic librarianship. I do not think I would enjoy the headache of planning a library. Planning a budget and having a staffing plan just don’t appeal to me. I know as librarians we will have to deal with budgets in our daily lives but I do not think i could do it all day. I enjoyed coming up with a collection and choosing books and resources. However, crunching the numbers on a budget plan was simply uninteresting to me. So I don’t think library administration is in my future. I think I could tackle it if it was on a smaller scale.

So a good thing from taking this class is that it opened my eyes to some things I didn’t know about academic libraries and can keep in mind when i do my internship next year.
