C&RL News – Job of a Lifetime – Brian Mathews
My first piece as the new editor of the Job of a Lifetime (JOAL) column in College & Research Libraries News is available online now! Not only can you read about Brian Mathews‘ job as the User Experience Librarian at Georgia Tech, but we did a brief corresponding podcast as well:
One caveat – I do not have a “radio voice” and have not listened to the podcast since C&RL News Editor David Free kindly edited it up for us. So I can’t be held responsible! :)
I really enjoyed working on my first column, and I hope that the interview with Brian will help other libraries and librarians recognize the many creative ways we can reach out and listen to our users. Brian had just finished his first day at his new position as assistant university librarian for outreach and academic services at the University of California – Santa Barbara on the evening we recorded the podcast – so a huge thank you goes out to him for extending his already crazy day!
I’ll be starting the next interview shortly, so if you think you have the “Job of a Lifetime,” please let me know. Enjoy & feel free to leave comments!
