Often when people think of a library they think of their local public library, however, there's more to the library and information sector than meets the eye!

While the library and information profession may seem like a homogenous group, libraries are actually classified by sectors and the communities they serve.


So the time has come for revalidation?
Time flies when you're having fun! Hopefully you’ve been keeping track of your journal as you go, but if not now's the time to sit down with a pot of coffee and try to remember what you’ve done over the last three years!
