Help! I’m On My Own! – From MLIS/MIS Lectures To INFO 580 Study

Library Life Article: 22 Mar 13

Feature article by: Adrian Jenkins

2012 is a year that I will look back on with fondness. For it was on the 11th of June of this year that I handed in my final piece of work for my Master of Information Studies (Library Science) degree – my INFO 580 Research Project. Having spent almost 12 months investigating one topic, I was very glad to ‘knock the bastard off’ as Sir Edmund Hillary is noted for saying. No, that’s an exaggeration. INFO 580 really wasn’t that bad.

Michelle Anderson: The Power of Choice - Problems with a Female Dominated Profession

Michelle Anderson presents her paper to the 2011 LIANZA conference on the problems experienced by a predominantly female profession.

Librarianship has traditionally been a female dominated profession. What has changed in the last 30 or so years has been the pattern of work that female librarians have engaged in. Changes in social attitudes, legislation and better childcare options have given women the power of choice – the ability to choose whether to combine work with motherhood, an option not available a number of years ago.
