June 1, 2016

Karen Sobel (MSLS '07), Research and Instruction Librarian for Art, Architecture, Music, & Urban Planning at Auraria Library in Denver, edited the book Mastering Subject Specialties: Practical Advice from the Field, which was published by Libraries Unlimited in March.

In the book, academic subject specialists provide detailed guidance on how to achieve successful careers in 14 specialty areas. The book also discusses how to plan ahead as your career goals change and how to prepare to move up the proverbial ladder.

Several members of the SILS and UNC Library communities contributed to the book, including Josiah Drewry (MSLS 2007), Lisa Norberg, Zari Kamarei, and Shari Laster (MSLS 2007).
