ALA introduces "Getting a Job in a Tough Economy" toolkit

Good luck to all the new grads out there! ALA is developing a toolkit for library job-hunters. They also welcome your feedback, so check it out at A short description:
The “Getting a Job in a Tough Economy” toolkit is an interactive website with tips, narrative and suggested links and readings, a blog, podcasts, timelines and activities/checklists for new librarians and support staff, those looking to change position, people who have been laid off, and others who are having difficulty finding the right position. The site will be a one-stop resource including and/or linking to information prepared for members from units within ALA, as well as linking to information about best practices in job searching from any field. The toolkit will shine a spotlight on the resources that ALA already offers, highlighting why they are especially valuable in the current economy.
