A second Master's in Cinema Studies would help, although not necessarily,
especially for a public library. I would avoid working in a public library at all costs:
they are generally dreadful and deadening to one's free spirit. .
My recommendation is to become a CINEMANIAC if you are not one already, and
join film clubs, organizations, volunteer to write reviews, bone up on technology--
although the substantive nature of media librarianship is far more interesting, at
least for me. Take lots of film/media courses.
It is not a good economy--however there are opportunities, if you make them
happen. If you live in a major city--there are t.v. networks, film archives, studios,
museums, film art centers,blah blah.
Hangout, above all, with -MOVIE MANIACS--if you have your heart set on it--you
can make it happen.
Keep us posted.
