Q: I’m an architectural resource librarian. How do I find jobs, and how can I find an organization with which to affiliate?

Q: I have a graduate degree in interior design and elected to professionally pursue the less conventional avenue of an architectural resource librarian. I would like to acquire a similar position in a new location (firm and state), but I have yet to find an organization with which to affiliate, so finding job postings is a challenge. Can you help in my search?

Related associations, such as:

And, the large job banks such as:

As for joining associations, I would recommend that you do so (check out the ones listed above). Within SLA, there is a Caucus for architecture, building engineering, construction, and design (the ABCD Caucus). Not only does it add to your resume, membership in a professional organization can provide you with a network of individuals, and resources, to assist you in your job search, and provide valuable professional development opportunities.  Best of luck!
