Description

As the crisis of the tenure track job market deepens, students, faculty, and career centers are increasingly searching for non-TT career possibilities for medievalist graduate and undergraduate students, with the library profession often near the top of the list. This panel discussion will address what a career in library and information sciences might actually look like for medievalists, whether it be in metadata, rare books and special collections, public libraries, digital scholarship, outreach, collection development, and more. Panelists will discuss the practicalities of career development, the realities of the job, and the potential difficulties and the opportunities that medievalists might encounter on this path.
