For those considering a career in librarianship or a mid-career change, Kane (information services, U. of South Carolina School of Medicine Library) provides a follow-up that illustrates how changes in technology have affected the work of librarians since publication of her Straight from the Stacks: A Firsthand Guide to Careers in Library and Information Services (2003). She presents interviews with 34 librarians from around the country who describe their emerging roles as subject specialists, technology specialists and social networkers, teachers and community liaisons, entrepreneurs, and administrators. She gives information on their environments, responsibilities, skills, education and training, and professional associations, then spotlights several librarians in each specialty.
