honing your Kraft

as we all know, libraries have expanded their collections far beyond books and magazines over the past few decades. the role of the librarian has also shifted, and more responsibilities are added to job listings on a daily basis. in addition, a growing number of agencies and organizations are adding librarians to their staff. recently, the CIA announced its need for a librarian. there are over 1,400 information professionals employed by the federal government, but the CIA itself is typically more recognized for its James Bond-like nature. in other words, you probably won’t be able to talk about work much at the dinner table.

another newly-advertised position comes from a highly unlikely source: the American Cheese Society in Denver. the actual title is Content Manager, but candidates with MLIS degrees are preferred. basically, a Cheese Librarian. in addition, applicants must love Pepperjack and Gouda. wearing a Cheese-Head hat isn’t necessary, but you need to know the Dairy Decimal System.
