Naomi: Favorite thing about libraries/ library technology? Anna: The focus on both community and global sharing. Libraries bring people together.
Naomi: Any websites or feeds or blogs we should be following? Anna: I can’t think of anything in particular – there are the big blogs out there that I’m sure folks are already reading. Aside from that, I can’t think of anything small or new.
Naomi: Best piece of job hunting advice? Anna: The best advice that I have is to apply for a certain number of jobs each week – make a schedule and stick with it. Also, be sure to keep copies of all of the postings that you respond to, so that you can refer back to them later.
