Make the most of our services for job seekers with FREE registration

ALA JobLIST offers one-stop-access for career leads, communicating with employers, and tips for success in the library and information science profession.

Search for jobs from all areas of library and information science and technology

JobLIST offers 24/7 access to current job postings from all library types and related organizations. Ads are searchable by library type, job category, location, keyword, and more for increased access to the perfect opportunity for you.

Upload your résumé and communicate with employers

Free registration to the JobLIST site opens the door to direct contact with employers. You can upload your résumé at any time and choose whether to make it available to employers when they search job seeker profiles for the skills and experience they seek. Once active, you can contact many employers directly, push your résumé to them right within JobLIST, and, if you're both attending the next ALA conference or meeting, schedule a face-to-face meeting at the ALA JobLIST Placement Center.

Receive job ads for positions relevant to you in your e-mail

Create search criteria for your perfect job and have the results delivered to your inbox at the interval that's right for you.

Subscribe to RSS feeds based on your search criteria

Choose a feed that will pick up all new ads as they are posted or one (or several) based on specific search criteria that you define. Just look for the RSS link on each of your search results pages for a pre-defined feed fitting that search criteria.

Discover valuable Career Resources

Learn how to find more than just a job but a job that is part of a dynamic career. ALA JobLIST’s Career Development Resources provide information selected by ALA's Office for Human Resources Development and Recruitment (HRDR) office and other areas of ALA to help you in your immediate search as well as achieving your overall career goals.
