A number of institutions, schools, associations, journals, and organizations maintain job banks and email lists that include library-related postings across the U.S. If you have suggestions for additional resources which would be appropriate, please email If you are geographically constrained, be sure to check out state job banks as well.

Fewer journals now maintain online job postings; others have merged. (The ads from American Libraries and C&RL News, for instance, are now on ALA's JobLIST -- find more under Associations.) Journal job banks and job-related twitterers are below; find other nationwide job postings in the menu at right.


  • Library Journal's "Job Zone."
  • The Chronicle of Higher Education lists pertinent ads under libraries, library/information sciences, and library administration -- also subscribe to their RSS feed. These are of course basically positions in college and research libraries.
