Librarian shortage myth: a bibliography of sorts

Anonymous Patron writes "An online bibliography has been launched on the subject of the over-recruitment of new librarians and their subsequent difficulties finding employment.

Blog postings with titles like: "A Plea For Help," "Still Unemployed," and "8 Months and Still Looking For Work," are being published by dozens of desperate librarians who cannot find employment.

Articles such as "The Annual Labor Shortage Hoax" and "Where Are All The Jobs?" are increasingly appearing in library and higher-ed magazines.

Links to several dozen of these resources can now be conveniently found here: http://librarian-shortage.blogspot.com/

This new bibliography will be of particular interest to individuals considering an ALA-accredited Master of Library/Information Science degree."
