    Hi Mia,
    Lots of example positions are being collected at alt-librarian-careers on Blogspot. See http://sla-divisions.typepad.com/njslajobs/2012/01/new-blog-alt-librarian-careers.html and/or the direct link is http://alt-librarian-careers.blogspot.com/. Although she's blogging anonymously, the author wrote several 'memoir' posts, explaining her personal experience, in the first few entries- so browse back to the 'archives' from January to see them. Best of Luck.
