SLA President Co-Authors Book about Realizing Career Potential
‘The Librarian’s Skillbook’ is a Critical Resource for Career Advancement

Alexandria, Virginia, 16 December 2013 – Information professionals with a versatile, transferable skill set can choose from a wider range of career choices and enjoy a higher earnings potential. To help information professionals acquire these versatile skills and leverage them to reach greater heights, SLA’s 2013 president, Deb Hunt, has co-authored The Librarian’s Skillbook: 51 Essential Career Skills for Information Professionals.  The book is a road map for information professionals ready to realize their full career potential, whether they are students or veterans of the profession.

The Librarian’s Skillbook is based on the award-winning “Expand Your Career Potential” workshop series by Deb and co-author David Grossman. The workshops have inspired and energized more than 1,200 information professionals and students worldwide through SLA’s Click University Webinars and regional and international talks.

“Deb has not only innovatively led SLA as president for the past year, she has truly become a leader within our industry,” said Janice Lachance, chief executive officer of SLA. “In The Librarian’s Skillbook, she provides an accessible strategy guide for information professionals of all levels to achieve maximum impact.”

“Deb and David conclude The Librarian’s Skillbook with six sure-fire strategies for career success. Regardless of the stage of your career, there is much to be learned here,” says Stephen Abram, a librarian and consultant with Lighthouse Partners and Dysart & Jones and past-president of SLA. “They deliver a perspective informed by experience and wrapped in wit, wisdom, and practical advice.”

Deb and David describe 51 of the most sought-after information management skills and clearly show the reader how to acquire and leverage these skills to obtain a promotion, find a dream job, or pursue an entirely new career path.
