    • This is probably as comprehensive a review of international library jobs and how to apply for them as you will find. Unfortunately it is highly weighted towards school library jobs since that is where the majority of the jobs are. It also looks like the opportunities are better for new graduates and mid-career librarians. Still, it was interesting to see the possibilities out there.


    • An informative well thought out book. If you are a librarian and looking into having a career overseas this is a great place to start. I read Sarah's blog a few years ago and it inspired me to become an International School Librarian. I'm currently living and working in China in an International School and am loving my new career abroad.
