Librarian

To Whom It May Concern:

I am applying for the Librarian vacancy at your agency. I am graduating on May 1, 2014 with a Masters Degree in Library Science from ALA accredited Kent State University. I also have a second Masters of Arts degree in History from Rhode Island College. I also have Bachelor Degree in Political Science from the University of Massachusetts.

A course called Reference Services will come in handy for research consultations and for locating authoritative sources for patrons. A graduate course named Learning Library Instruction will come in handy for the duty of teaching and patrons learning of library literacies, whether face-to-face or online. The Social Science Sources course will come in handy at your library with developing LibGuides and determining authoritative sources for social science subjects. The Selection and Acquisition of Library Materials course will be helpful with selecting and acquiring materials for the library's collection, interpreting reading habits, weeding, and censorship issues. A course called Government Information Services will come in handy with locating patron’s requests with government documents in the United States, Canada, and the United Nations. The Library Management course will come in handy with supervising library assistants and volunteers. Fifteen Years of cultural diversity experience as a counselor for minority adults with developmental disabilities.

Library Technical skills obtained from graduate coursework in Reference Management Software namely RefWorks, webpage development, Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Searching Databases, Library 2.0, Library Information Systems, knowledge of AARC2 rules, MARC, DDC, creating Library Guides, Reference Services, Government Documents, Selection and Acquisition of Library Materials, and the Library of Congress classification system. I feel that my two masters degree in library science and history make me an ideal candidate for your vacancy as a librarian.

I have the personal funds to relocate; therefore, distance is not an issue.



Sincerely,

Mark Holding, MLS, MA
