The Accidental Librarian
By Pamela H. MacKellar
Publication Date: October, 2008
Price: $20.65

“A comprehensive and truly necessary resource. ... This book should be on every library staffer’s personal reference shelf, especially those new to library work and directors without formal training. ... a must-have for creating strong, community-centered libraries.”

— Stephanie Gerding, author
The Accidental Technology Trainer

Are you doing the job of a librarian without the advantage of a library degree or professional experience? Do you wonder what you might have missed in formal library education, how highly trained librarians stay on top of their game, or what skills and qualities library directors look for? Have we got the book for you!

Pamela H. MacKellar—a 25-year library veteran who has mentored "accidental" librarians in all types of settings—covers library principles, practices, and tools of the trade. She offers tips, examples, and simple exercises to increase your understanding.

Whether you are seeking a thorough grounding in library fundamentals or simply looking for ways to serve more effectively in your current role, The Accidental Librarian is a great place to start.

"A realistic roadmap to a worthwhile profession. ... clear, succinct... invaluable."
— Don Borchert, author, Free for All:
Oddballs, Geeks and Gangstas in the Public Library
 
"Impressive! A wealth of information is contained in this overview of the profession."
— Susan Pinkerton, Ph.D., Associate Professor of
Library Science, New Mexico State University
