Sneak Peek!

I bet some of you are curious about our new State and Province pages.  After all, the pdf may be something you are quite used to so you wonder why all this change.  Oh my goodness!  let me tell you that by adding over 100 volunteers INALJ will become so much more robust and have even more jobs for all of you.  So the goal may be just short of librarians ruling the world but I do so hope that this will mean more employed librarians.  So if you are curious about the template I am using I have shared below.  This is the Ontario, Canada page, and all launch on Monday, Feb. 4th.  This is the basic way the pages will look.  So til Monday I give you

Founded in October 2010 with the assistance of her fellow Rutgers classmate, Elizabeth Leonard, INALJ’s social media presence has grown to include Facebook (retired in 2016), Twitter and a LinkedIn group, in addition to the interviews, articles and jobs found on INALJ.com. INALJ has had over 18 Million page views and helped thousands of librarians and LIS folk find employment! Through grassroots marketing, word of mouth and a real focus on exploring unconventional resources for job leads, INALJ grew from a subscription base of 20 friends to a website with over 500,000 visits in a month.
