NexGen Librarians List Serves Interesting Content for New Librarians.

As part of my own going series to highlight useful resources for library folks, here is a description of one of the better online library discussion lists

NexGen Librarian’s List

Christine Bourne’s NexGen Librarian’s List is a colorful and useful resource for people new to the library community. It cover topics such as the age issue, and intergenerational work styles; interview advice for finding new jobs; the social life of the librarian; and tips and advice for the new librarian. The list is open to all, regardless of age, but the focus of the list tends toward issues facing library folks in their 20s and 30’s. Message traffic tends to be moderate and focused on mostly on library issues.

NexGen also has a website located at
