New Discussion Forums

Filed under: precat — jenny @ 7:29 am

Check out the new discussion forums Rachel Singer Gordon has started over on LISjobs.

“LISjobs.com, the largest free library career portal on the Internet, is pleased to announce the launch of its new online community for librarians. Devoted entirely to career development and job hunting, these forums provide a space for librarians, LIS students, library workers, and information professionals to discuss professional development issues.”

The current forum topics cover LIS schools, jumpstarting your career, professional development and participation, talking tenure, professional writing, and work/life balance.
In other news, American Libraries has started its own discussion forum based on content from the magazine and other ALA topics, so the LISjobs forums make a nice complement. Together, these are two great places to connect with your colleagues. Thanks for providing this service, Rachel.


  1. Thanks for the mention, Jenny. The ALA forums are coming up 404 — is that URL correct?
    Not Found
    The requested URL /forums/ was not found on this server.
    Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

  2. Thanks, Rachel – you’re right that the URL was incorrect. It’s fixed now. 🙂

  3. Interesting blog, for sure. A lot of good data and resources on here, and I wanted to share another resource that has a lot of good information on school and universities, as well as some good student feedback culled from Yahoo Answers. Discussion forums are always a good place to look to find a feel for a certain school and to guage the atmosphere as dictated by the students. CampusExplorer.com is my favorite site right now that combines both in-depth info on schools as well as useful advice and discussion points on many of the schools and programs. It also has a ton of interesting and unique videos on each school. If nothing else, it’s an easy to navigate site and a useful tool, and it’s free. I also like going to CollegeBoard, CollegeSource and CollegeNet.
