The prestigious College of Information Science at Drexel University lists a variety of positions for librarians, information scientists and related professions, most in or around the Philadelphia area, but some as far west as Pittsburgh, and some north and east as New Jersey and New York. If you're on the East Coast and want to work in a library you BETTER go to school here. (I did) A fine site for those seeking a position on the east coast.
