Michelle Maden, Independent Clinical Information Specialist, PhD Student

I didn't get where I am today by following a traditional career path in library and information management

When I was growing up I don't think I ever recalled a time where I thought 'I want to be a Librarian'. I wanted to be a teacher. In 1998 I kind of 'fell into' Librarianship after my undergraduate degree but realised early on that I didn't want to manage people. However, in my role as a Clinical Librarian the only way to progress up the career ladder was to take on managerial responsibilities. My talk will look at how I took an alternative route to career progression in the information profession through independent consultancy, teaching and research, the bene ts and pitfalls involved and advice I would give if I was starting over again.

Helen Osborne, Area Manager, Halton Libraries
