Abstract

The Library Career Interest Group (LCIG) began ten years ago as the Library School Interest (LSIG). The librarian who heads the UCI Libraries Human Resources Department had been approached by many staff members interested in library school and the library profession. Our core membership is a range of library assistants across departments and we have also had librarians, student workers and interns attend our sessions. We are an informal group without an official charge which gives us the flexibility to adapt to our members’ interests and needs. We define our purpose as providing moral support and encouragement for staff interested in the library profession and those interested in growth and career advancement. For the last few years, we have been committed to becoming more active and developing programming that addresses career growth and job searching skills.
