Librarians and cover letters

A couple of really great posts on writing cover letters for library jobs have surfaced in the blogosphere lately. I don’t have any pearls to add–just that it’s interesting to me, as always, to hear advice from someone on the other side of the application process.  I feel lucky to have an information/library-related job at all, let alone one that I enjoy and where I work with supportive colleagues.   If you’re looking for a library or information-related job, check out for some great resources and advice.

Attempting Elegance blog: “the torment of terrible cover letters”

Lots of comments here.

And a great blog post response by at Across Divided Networks, especially, “There’s a difference between job duties and job accomplishments.”  Simple  advice that is not often heeded.
