"Originally , when I decided that I wanted to work in libraries it was because I imagined that I’d be skipping around, dancing with books and reading on rocking chairs all afternoon"
“I wasn’t thinking of librarianship at all until I was working in a temporary clerical job at Manchester Polytechnic Library and the Head Librarian suggested it. ...It was only after working there as a graduate trainee that I realised it was the perfect job for me!”
Melissa Collier-Baker (BSU Library Assistant)
“I became disillusioned with publishing...it became more a question of simply transferring files around. I got to know the librarian who ran it (Publishers Information Service) and realised that library work was a way to regain what I felt I was losing in publishing...making good-quality information available to people who needed it.”
“I was inspired by the helpfulness of librarians that I have come across….One was an Information Librarian at University of Bath ...who helped me find a book…. I’ve never forgotten how helpful he was.”
“I was unhappy working in law,,,so moved to a bookshop. Working with books was the thing I most enjoyed, and I liked the customer service aspect”
“I realised the skills I did like using were in helping others with information and advice. Therefore I searched for suitable alternative roles which used these skills and library work was the one that appealed to me the most”
