Cool Careers for Girls
Pasternak and Thornburg
Anyone hanging out here in our little corner of the Internet, knows that I have a serious issue with outdated career materials. I am all about giving girls some inspiration to consider STEM careers. I doubt that this book will inspire anyone. I like what this book is attempting: delivering some solid advice on the jobs available, necessary training, career paths, etc. That was then and this is now. As a person who has been hanging out in libraries since before this book was published, technology has changed and so have the careers.
I really want to remind everyone that technology and trends influence every aspect of a library collection. Basic tech literacy is probably a requirement for just about every job out there. The world of 1998 is not going to be helpful for any of our young people today.
