Welcome to the INALJ (I Need a Library Job) webpage/journal.

This is a one stop shop where fans could find all of my pages and email information as well as bios, interviews, book reviews and original articles by my friends, colleagues and fans. Every day I will add more to this website so stop by, sign up for the daily email, link to our FB, Twitter and LinkedIn accounts and fingers crossed- I hope to help you find a job! Over 600 fans have found jobs so far.

INALJ started on October 16, 2010 when I sent an email out to several of my Rutgers MLIS friends asking for ideas on sharing jobs we all found through listservs. I had been lucky enough to find my job as a reference librarian half way through my Masters degree and wanted to share the jobs I had found. Elizabeth Leonard volunteered to start the Facebook and Twitter pages and I began my daily comprehensive digest of jobs I called INALJ. Now we are on FB, Twitter, LinkedIn and this website and we are looking to expand. INALJ covers all 50 states and many international jobs as well.

The most important service I offer is the INALJ daily jobs digest with over 150+ pages of jobs daily- please sign up by emailing me at ineedalibraryjob@gmail.com The daily email is free but donations are always welcome and help us grow. Every evening I post the jobs sent in the daily email online Here!

I am the reference and acquisitions librarian at a federal library outside Washington, DC. I have worked in libraries first as a paraprofessional and now as a librarian for the past eight years. In my spare time I run my husband’s moving labor company website, fix up old houses and sleep.

Naomi House

Naomi House, MLIS, is the founder and publisher of the popular webzine and jobs list INALJ.com (formerly I Need a Library Job) and former CMO (Chief Marketing Officer) of T160K.org, a crowdfunding platform focused on African patrimony, heritage and cultural projects. INALJ was founded in October 2010 with the assistance of her fellow Rutgers classmate, Elizabeth Leonard. Its 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. INALJ has had over 21 Million page hits and helped many, many thousands of librarians 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 one month. Naomi believes that well-sourced quantity is quality in this narrow job market and INALJ reflects this with many new jobs published daily. She has also written for the 2011, 2012 and 2013 LexisNexis Government Info Pro and many other publications in the past decade. She presents whenever she can, including serving on three panels at the American Library Association's Annual Conference in Las Vegas; as breakout presenter at OCLC EMEA in Cape Town, South Africa; as a keynote speaker at the Virginia Library Association annual meeting; at the National Press Club in Washington DC; McGill University in Montreal, Canada; the University of the Emirates, Dubai, MLIS program and the University of Hawaii at Manoa. Naomi was a Reference, Marketing and Acquisitions Librarian for a contractor at a federal library outside Washington, DC, and has been living and working in Budapest, Hungary and Western New York State. She spent years running her husband’s moving labor website, fixed and sold old houses and assisted her husband cooking delicious Pakistani food. She is preparing to re-enter the workforce and is job hunting. Her husband is now the co-editor of INALJ, a true support!  She has heard of spare time but hasn’t encountered it lately. She pronounces INALJ as eye-na-elle-jay.
