Assignment 11:   Interview a Librarian. Due Apr 25.

Interview a professional librarian.

Find out about that individual's values, motivation, priorities, and sense of the technical, political, social, and economic issues being faced. Ask what advice he or she woudl give to someone contemplating becoming a librarian. Feel free to add your own comments to your account of the interview.

It makes sense to talk to some person who would be a useful source of information for the type of library you think you might want to work in, but that is not a requirement.

Send an e-mail note with two paragraphs -- one about the person you talked with and the other a brief summary of what you learned -- to   Also a written summary (approx. 2 pages single-spaced) to me.
