Don't forget about professional development things like free webinars, online classes or trainings, and even keeping up with professional literature. You could also find small volunteer opportunities/projects in your community that could be done during your waiting period--it doesn't have to all be library related!

I am presently in a situation where I have finished my MLIS and have a few years of experience, but due to a "family issue," I will be unable to start working again until mid-October. The last week of September, I have to make a coast-to-coast trip which I expect will take 3 weeks, give or take. Obviously, I can't get a new job, then ask for 2-3 weeks off after I've been there a month, so I've decided it'd be better for all involved if I didn't apply to jobs until that issue is solved.

So, my question is, what suggestions do you have for unemployed librarians to stay active (resume-build) until I can start applying for work again?
-- Volunteering
-- Internship
-- Nebulous committee involvement (ALA/ Division/ Round Tables)

Additional ideas are preferred, but support of existing ideas is also useful. Thanks!
