Another world of Librarianship

Within the past three months, I have entered the world of State Librarianship. Prior to my current position, I was vastly unfamiliar with what the State Library actually might do within a state.

Our State Library encompasses:
  • Federal grant funding for Systems (regional service centers) and Libraries directly
  • Talking Book Program
  • State-wide access to subscription databases and resource sharing initiatives
  • State Archives, Genealogy Room, Reference Services, Library Science Collection
  • Consulting and Continuing Education on all topics related to Librarianship
