Insights from Have MLIS, Will Travel

I’ve been running my experiment in library job sharing for a month now. This is very, very early preliminary data. It excludes some jobs that were not logged properly by by logging function.

In the cleaned up data set, I have 579 jobs for the month of March.

HMWT - 1

61 of those jobs are in Canada

As you can see from the images, three types of jobs predominate. Management, Liaison/Reference and Youth Services

Here’s a map of jobs posted in the month of March.

I’m going to start excluding school librarian positions from the jobs I’m sharing. I’m happy to share an RSS feed of those jobs to anyone interested in starting their own job board for school librarians.

I can also offer an RSS feed of the library technician positions.

Improvements to work on

  1.  fix the logging function.
  2. start excluding school librarian postings (as of April 1)
  3. Combine the Liaison and Reference job ‘types’
  4. duplicate detection
