Online Directory of Librarians and Library and Information Science and Services Professionals

Online Directory of Librarians and Library and Information Science and Services Professionals


Online Directory of Librarians and Library and Information Science and Services Professionals is a list of librarians and library professionals. It is a free international Who's Who of Library and Information Science and Services listing professionals working in libraries, information centers, and other similar institutions. It is an ambitious project to bring information about librarians and library professionals worldwide to one place which can be viewed and searched online.

It is to be noted that this directory is currently under development. Its idea is envisioned based on the crowdsourcing model where the librarians and other library professionals will send us their information to be included in the directory. We will add entries in this directory as we receive information from them. 

Anyone whose work is related to libraries, information centers, and other similar institutions is in scope to be added to this directory. For example, if you are not a librarian but a vendor who supplies books, journals, databases, automation services, etc. to libraries, then you can also be included in this online directory. Library and Information Science students who are currently studying, LIS professionals who are not currently employed or are retired, and teachers are also included in the directory. 

Librarianship Studies & Information Technology blog contributors get an entry in the directory by default. To publish your works in LibrarianshipStudies.com, please see Write for Librarianship Studies - Guidelines for Authors.

INTRODUCTORY VIDEO




BACKGROUND

We wished to give the readers of the Librarianship Studies & Information Technology blog a searchable list of librarians and library professionals that contains information about LIS professionals worldwide. This led to the creation of the Online Directory of Librarians and Library and Information Science and Services Professionals.


AIMS & PURPOSE

The Online Directory of Librarians and Library and Information Science and Services Professionals satisfies various important purposes, some are given below:

  • This list of librarians may help employers (e.g., libraries, information centers, etc.) in their search for LIS professionals who can be recruited in their library.
  • This directory may be helpful to the LIS professionals and students in their job search. For example, if you have applied for a job in some library, you may search the library's name and librarians working there in the directory. Then you may contact the current employees of the library through their email addresses to get information that may be helpful for you in getting the job.


HOW TO USE THIS DIRECTORY: ARRANGEMENT OF ENTRIES 

The directory is arranged alphabetically first by country, then by state, by city, followed by the name, gender, e-mail, position/designation, and name of Institution, organization, etc. of the LIS professional.


HOW TO ENTER YOUR INFORMATION IN THE DIRECTORY

Please provide us the following information through the data entry form given below to get an entry in the directory. Enter your details in English only. It is important to note that we are not including phone numbers, addresses, and other information in the directory due to privacy concerns. Please don't use abbreviations or acronyms while providing names of state, city, university, institution, etc.; give full names only in the form.

1. Name of Country - e.g., United States

2. Name of State - e.g., California. 

3. Name of City - e.g., San Jose

4. Name - e.g., Carla Hayden (born August 10, 1952). Optionally, please also provide your Date of Birth along with your name. This will help employers in ascertaining whether they should contact you for their library job.

5. Gender - select from the options: Male or Female or Other or "I prefer not to say"

6. Email - you may give either your personal email or official email or both

7. Position/Designation - e.g., Librarian, Student, Professor, etc.

8. Name of the Institution, Organization, etc. - e.g., San Jose State University or Librarianship Studies & Information Technology blog. Give the name of the institution, organization, etc. where you work. If you are a student currently studying or completed education in library and information science and are now searching for a job, you can give the name of the university/college from where you have completed your education.

9. Name of the Library, etc. - e.g., Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Library

10. Name of the Department, School, etc. - e.g., Cataloging Division, or, School of Information Sciences

11. Feedback, Suggestions, Comments - Help us improve the Online Directory of Librarians and Library and Information Science and Services Professionals. Kindly provide us your feedback,  suggestions, or comments. This field is optional but we would love to know your opinion about this directory.






Note 
  • Once you have sent your information to us to be included in the directory through the form, the first thing you should do is check the accuracy of your information provided in the spreadsheet below given under the "Responses Received" heading. Refresh your browser if your information has not appeared in the spreadsheet. Now if any revision is required then you can email us at librarianship.studies@gmail.com. It is to be noted that it may take a month to get your entry published in the directory, but your information will be visible instantly in the spreadsheet given below. We will email you when your entry is created or updated in the directory.
  • If someone wants to get their entry removed from the directory, they can let us know on our email and we will remove their entry from the directory.

QUALITY CONTROL AND UPDATES

The directory is revised from time to time to present the most up-to-date information. Whenever some LIS professional sends their information, we will enter their information in the directory. They may also send us information later to revise/update their information in the directory to our email at librarianship.studies@gmail.com.


THE FUTURE

We plan to allow more information to the directory entries in the future. Later, we also plan to offer the LIS professionals an opportunity to have an individual page in the Librarianship Studies & Information Technology blog which they could develop as their online resumes. This will help the employers in connecting with you and offer you a job in their library. Then we will enter the link of your online resume in our blog in your directory entry.
