Job Search Dogpile

Where are you looking for Library jobs?

I’ve got an ever-increasing list of places to keep my eye on.  Luckily many of them come to me, either through RSS or job cards. I’m primarily looking on the west coast (no farther from the bay area than about a $100 plane ticket).  I’m searching in public, academic and special libraries , because I have the curse of being interested in everything.

Job Boards and Othersuch

LibGig (they’re on Twitter too)
LISjobs
ALA JobList
CLA Job Bank
BayNet
CalOPPs
(includes Daly City library, City of Alameda Free Library, City of Mountain View)

I Need a Library Job (also a relentless Facebook page)

National Independent School Association Career Center

Idealist
Craigslist (I have RSS feeds for searches on “librarian,” “library,” and “cheese”)
CalJOBS (To be honest I’m not really looking here, but you have to register if you want to get unemployment.  Has anyone ever found a job from it?)

Job cards (Please note that having a job card at some of these places is a bit like wearing a belt AND suspenders: they will most likely show up on CalOpps or elsewhere)

Alameda County
Berkeley Public Library
Contra Costa County
City of Livermore
City of Oakland
City of Palo Alto
City of Pleasanton
City of Richmond Public Library
Santa Clara County
San Diego County
San Francisco Public Library
City of San Jose
San Mateo County
City of Santa Cruz
Solano County
City of Sunnyvale
Yolo County

There are a few cities that I found which did things a little differently:

City of Los Gatos – couldn’t find a job card or e-notify option.  It’s part of Santa Clara County
City of Hayward – enotify for all city jobs, couldn’t find one for just the library? It’s part of Alameda County.
City of Santa Clara – this is an RSS feed with all city jobs.  They also Twitter!
Where am I missing?
Are you looking anywhere that’s not on the list?
