School of Information Management & Systems. Spring 2004.
Design of Library Services.
Assignment 13: Interview a Librarian. Due Apr 30.
Interview a professional
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 would 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 and/or relevant to your Study Guide / Design Study,
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 the rest of the class at email@example.com
Also a written summary (approx. 2 pages single-spaced) to me.
