Career Alternatives for the MLS

Librarians in the Information Age: Alternative Uses of MLS Degrees - New article up at LIScareer.com that identifies several categories for careers as information professionals, whether or not "librarian" is in the job title. Under the catagory "Way Out There," the article notes an MLS grad who became the manager of a sex toy shop:

She says the reference interview is directly applicable, just relating to different information. She also has a collection management responsibility, including toy reviews and customer interests. She says, “I’m trying my best to make ‘librarian’ and ‘sex’ go together, one toy at a time.” (Butcher, 2001)
