A network for new and aspiring library professionals
Are you curious about other library sectors? Want to see a day in the life of a librarian? Job shadowing might be the answer!
At our NLPN Winter 2017 event, Penny Andrews came up with this great idea:

It seems to us that the simplest way to enable this is to create a list of librarians who are willing to allow aspiring librarians to shadow them. If you would like to be added to the list below, please email us firstname.lastname@example.org or DM us. We will need your name, job title, location and preferred contact details. As you’ll see on the list, we’ll disguise your email address.
We will periodically check in with the people on the list to see if circumstances have changed. If you are on the list and would like to be removed, please contact us as above.
Now the list has some members, it’s over to the shadowers! Remember, these people have specifically volunteered to be on the list and would love to help so don’t be scared. You will learn throughout your career that librarians are some of the most helpful people you will ever meet.
