How seamless are career transitions for theological librarians between schools that have religious affiliations and public schools or other secular library settings? The main differences of various types of libraries are highlighted. A schematic will be supplied to assist those considering potential moves to determine how far apart their current setting is from any given employment opportunity they might be considering. Perspectives and experience theological librarians may bring to non-theological positions are highlighted. Pros and cons of these types of changes, learned from the presenter’s career that has so far spanned four very different types of libraries, are disclosed. Participants will be invited to share stories and insights related to their own career moves and dreams.
