Transferable skills aquired through library work?

I was wondering what other jobs I could apply skills acquired through library work (at a library assistant level). I have been doing this work for a number of years now (including front line customer service). I know that the skills would be transferable to records management roles, and filing clerk roles. Anything else? Also, I don't have library qualifications per se.

There are librarians in large corporations and even symphony orchestras. Records management sounds similar. But I think you are beyond file clerk.

If you have been involved in cataloging at all, you may consider looking at some web related jobs. Many of the skills used in information architecture and the organization of massive amounts of information contained in web sites are similar to the cataloging of books traditionally done in libraries.
