  • About the Author

Many librarians have left the library to work in media environments, including newspapers, television and movie studios, all of which require skilled librarians to develop and manage their archives of film, text and other resources. They may be called ‘researcher,’ ‘media manager’ or ‘information manager,’ but these employees are nevertheless highly qualified information professionals. If you’ve ever wondered what it would be like to put your library skills to work outside the library, here’s a book that will tell you what to expect. The only one of its kind, this practical guide explores the issues of central importance for media librarians, archivists, catalogers, and researchers working for television studios, newspapers and other media-based organizations. With chapters contributed by practitioners who can write from personal, hands-on experience, A Handbook for Media Librarians will equip you with the information you need about specialized online subscriptions, news databases, the cataloging of television programs, and more. It also makes excellent reading for students of library and information science who wonder what else they could do with their degree.
