Career opportunities in conservation

    I have been working as a university library assistant for over 2
    years, assisting in the treatment of special and circulating
    collections. With my current job I feel that I have reached a glass
    ceiling of sorts and that, without a masters in Library Science or
    Conservation I will not be able to advance much farther than I
    already have.

    As I ponder my next move I realize that I don't know all that is out
    there job/career-wise in the Preservation/Conservation fields. I
    would greatly appreciate information and insight from anyone on this
    list who would be willing to tell me something about his/her job. I
    am hoping that replies to this query will run the gamut of
    jobs/careers currently out there, from Book and Paper Conservator to
    Museum Curator to Archivist and more.

    I am especially interested in hearing from people who participated
    in Museum Studies programs and to hear what they are doing after
    receiving their degrees.

    I can be reached at cmoseley [at] minerva__cis__yale__edu. Thank you for
    your help,

    Jenifer Bosworth
