INALJ by Example: Growing Your Career from the Grassroots Up

Speaker's bio: Naomi House, MLIS, is the founder and publisher of the popular webzine and jobs list INALJ.com (I Need a Library Job). Founded in October 2010 with the assistance of her fellow Rutgers classmate Elizabeth Leonard, INALJ’s social media presence has grown to include Facebook, Twitter and a LinkedIn group, in addition to the interviews, articles and jobs found on INALJ.com. Naomi believes that well-sourced quantity is quality in this narrow job market and INALJ reflects this many new jobs published daily. She has also written for the 2011 and 2012 LexisNexis Government Info Pro. She presents whenever she can, most recently at the University of the Emirates, Dubai, MLIS program and the University of Hawaii at Manoa.


Having success in the information and library services fields takes hard work, dedication and above all else the patience and persistence to cultivate your career. INALJ was founded because the job hunt was so difficult and Naomi House was having to hunt far and wide for job postings. INALJ is just one of the many tools that you can use to find a job. There are also many ways to cultivate a positive online presence and engage with the larger library communities. This lecture/workshop/networking event will take place on April 12, from 1 to 3 pm, at Lev Bukhman Room (SSMU), McGill University
