In November, 2001, I started a new job as a Training Librarian at the San Diego Public Library. My work involves establishing benchmarks for their technical competencies and conducting a training survey; coordinating and creating staff and patron training classes and programs, such as the classes for staff from Infopeople; developing training materials, resources, and aids for the Library catalog and all electronic resources; training staff in electronic databases, searching, and retrieval.
It's been plenty to do, but the instructional work, creating tutorials and online materials, and improving training of the staff is very rewarding. I work in a group called CAOS (Collection Analysis and Online Services).. and yes, sometimes, it is indeed chaos :) .. now, too, I am the Electronic Resources Librarian, taking on more work as downsizing impacts our library ...
