  • tompierce13@slypyke - I did not know this!
  • miss_meelsI really enjoyed this post, @library_vic! Keep up the awesome work with the interesting & informative behind-the-scenes 👏🙌📖👏
  • moisie8Yep. I've been down there cleaning the old books that were being taken down there in the mid nineties My first job as a librarian and it wasn't very nice down there at all ... Wearing grey lab coat 😕Luckily I complained to Mary Carey and got out into Science Museum Library
  • krissylevon@moisie8 interesting! I did a work placement at SLV (i'm a qualified Library Technician) and would do anything for a job there 😂👍🏻
  • moisie8@krissylevon Hi, keep trying, get like a broken record, ring them up, look up the weekly Public Service Notices, that's where a lot of the jobs r advertised. Even if you could get in to one of the Government Dept libraries they're good and you could apply for a transfer. If you don't give up something will come of it. Cheers Moira
