Nailing the Library Interview

In keeping with the spirit of moving into this WordPress thing, I’ve folded the Nailing the Library Interview site into my WordPress blog. Originally, it was on PBWorks, but this will allow me to more easily update it. Also, it allows for easier feedback from readers.

Nailing the Library Interview is divided into four sections:

I’m always looking for suggestions of questions to add, etc.. so feel free to comment!


I’m a librarian. I like to read. A lot. Go figure. Always an avid reader of professional librarian blogs, I’ve never done it myself. I’ve always thought, “I don’t have time to blog!” I tweet regularly–and lately I’ve started using services such a Twitlonger and to extend my tweets past the maximum 140 characters. It dawned on me: if you can’t keep it short, then blog it! My job as an academic librarian has focused on instruction and reference, but I also keep up on instructional technology and social media. Topics I plan to post on include:

  • Libraries
  • Reading
  • Technology
  • Books/Publishing
  • E-books
  • Information Literacy/Library Instruction
  • Social Media
  • Library Job Advice

I started a new job in January and thought it would be a good time to think about important issues that affect librarians. I’ll plan to post 2-3 times per week. Thanks for reading and I hope to hear from you soon.
