40 AALL SPECTRUM | WWW.AALLNET.ORG Q After enjoying several years working as a law librarian in one institution, I recently decided to take a leap and transition to a new position in a different library type, and in a new city. I'm mostly excited, but slightly apprehensive. What's your advice for making this change as painless as possible? REFERENCE DESK BY DOLLY M. KNIGHT, MARIBEL NASH & SCOTT VANDERLIN BUSINESS EDGE Making the Transition The great thing about librarianship is that it is so versatile. A librarian's skill set can and should transfer from one library type to another without too much disruption. However, there are striking differences between be- ing a librarian in a law firm and being a librarian in an academic or govern- ment library setting. Our Reference Desk columnists offer up their advice on making the transition smoother from one library to another.
