When the economy sucks, it's good to be a digital archivist

As noted by Blogmeister extraordinaire Professor Sue Liemer, below, the crummy (to put it mildly) economy is even affecting academia.  Well, most of it, anyway.  Not surprisingly, the demand among universities for digital archivists, according to this article, is way up and expected to increase three-fold in the next decade assuming we don't encounter Armageddon first.

The pay is good ranging from $70k to $100k per year.  Perhaps that's where some of the thousands (so far) of laid-off BigLaw associates will land.

I am the scholarship dude.
