Sarah P’s comments: This position does not openly indicate a librarian is needed however as this advert was placed on IFLA it implies they are willing to consider a MLIS as a relevant advanced degree. I find this more evidence of a need to take some knowledge management courses if you are considering an international career with NGO’s. See also my blog listing for an Information and Knowledge Management consultant in Fiji.
