A blogger at Bitesize Bio tells the tale of how she went from aspiring scientific researcher to librarian. Her job includes everything from teaching workshops on clinical genetics to managing a web site and curating a bioinformatics database. To make it happen, she went back to school for her Masters in Library Science. "I also talked to a lot of people -- don’t underestimate the power of networking," she says. "If you’re trying to figure out an alternative career in science, I’d recommend looking into becoming an informationist/science librarian/molecular biology information specialist/you make up the name."
