This webpage is the result of a project by the ALCTS CaMMS Recruitment and Mentoring Committee to gather various "career profiles" or responses by metadata, cataloging, and technical services professionals to a series of questions about their careers. These profiles were gathered in the spring of 2017, when members of this committee distributed a survey across various email lists and collected responses from volunteers who were willing to share information about their positions on the ALCTS website. These profiles are intended to demonstrate a wide range of professional opportunities available in these areas of librarianship. It is hoped that by providing a snapshot of various opportunities, they will help newcomers and more experienced professionals learn about different career paths in cataloging, metadata, and related occupations, as well as competencies that are needed for those roles.
LIS educators and mentors are particularly encouraged to share links to the site with those to whom it may be of interest.
