Live Interview Series: So You Wanna...Change Library Types? (PEGA-SIS)

Wednesday, March 29, 2023 (12pm - 1pm US/Central)

Join the Professional Engagement, Growth, & Advancement SIS (PEGA-SIS) for another webinar in their Live Interview Series. There are many types of library models, including firms, government and academic libraries, and we don't have to be locked to a single type when we enter this field. In this "So You Wanna...?" interview, Sabrina Davis, the current PEGA-SIS Chair will talk with three librarians who have all changed library types, and discuss the differences between those types, how you can decide to change types, what resources you can use to change types, and more.


Meg Kribble is currently a Research & Knowledge Manager at Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP. She spent the first dozen years of her career as an academic law librarian, and just went to interview with a law firm to see what it was like. She loves working with attorneys from the summer associate stage through retired partners.

Melissa Bernstein practiced corporate law after attending Harvard Law School, practicing first in New Jersey and then New York. She worked briefly at an investment bank before getting her MLIS at the Pratt Institute, intending to become a children’s librarian. Instead, she became an academic law librarian, working first at the Tarlton Law Library, University of Texas School of Law and then as director of the James E. Faust Law Library at the University of Utah for nearly 10 years. She became the Circuit Librarian for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit in May, 2022.

Before joining the Burns Law Library, he served as chief of the public services division of the Law Library of Congress and as acting section manager of the research and library services section of the American law division in the Congressional Research Service.
