Info Career Trends on indefinite hiatus

Published by rachel at 10:04 am under meta

Important announcement: After the May 2009 issue, Info Career Trends will be going on hiatus indefinitely.

But why, Rachel?

After putting out bimonthly issues for nearly 9 years, it’s time for a break. I’m finding it harder to balance labors of love like ICT with family and with paid projects, and need to refocus some of my energies. Read Greg Schwartz’ post on priorities about putting his Uncontrolled Vocabulary podcast on a similar hiatus; he pretty much says it for me as well.

But will it ever come back?

Possibly — never say never, eh? Stay subscribed, and you’ll be the first to know if and when it does.

But what about the columns?

If you have been reading Kim Dority’s “Rethinking Information Careers” column or The Library Career People career Q&A column through ICT, you’ll want to subscribe to their columns individually. You can do so via RSS or email by visiting each:

Older Info Career Trends content will remain up and available at the Info Career Trends site.

A shout out to you all

Thanks for reading and for your support and contributions over the last 9 years. I hope that ICT has been useful as you’ve moved forward in your own careers. You can always find more career development info and links over at — which isn’t going away, never fear :).

So long, and thanks for all the years!

- Rachel

    Hi Rachel,

    I want to thank you for all the years of hard work you have put in for our community! I have found Info Career Trends valuable for all stages of my career, from being in library school to landing my current position. I have always found useful and inspiring material in your publication.

    Thank you so much and I applaud you for being willing to do hard things like letting go of beloved projects and striving for balance!
