Are You LIS Job Hunting or Just Interested in the Field?
3 Interview Series on INALJ (Non-Library Jobs for Library Workers / Librarians Abroad / LIS Entrepreneurs)
Welcome back to INALJ’s 2020 series of interviews. I took the month of July off after a very busy and incredibly helpful late-May and June interview series and now I am back with more interviews for those in LIS (library and information science) on non-library job options, working abroad as a librarian, and starting your own LIS related business.
For a refresher on the interview series I started this all with check out my introduction article, Non-Library Jobs & Advice on How to Get One and be sure not to miss the weekly summaries with links to the 20+ interviews that have there own job hunting value-adds.
I will be launching the August interviews starting tomorrow with an interview with a librarian who runs a zine business and does presentation work, followed by a librarian working in Spain on Wednesday and an Executive Director and CEO on Thursday. Friday will be another librarian abroad interview with someone who also wrote the book on it, so do look for that if interested in working abroad.
Thank you to each and every single interviewee. These interviews are not compensated but they do take labor and give all of us a tremendous amount of value in their insights. Each interviewee has done this on their own time and I am grateful to them.
If you would like to be interviewed for any of these series or have a recommendation for someone who would be a great fit to be interviewed please email Naomi.House@INALJ.com and let me know which person/category. I am open to anyone who has worked in libraries in any capacity or studied LIS or GLAM related fields. I am particularly interested in interviewing BIPOC, but open to anyone.
