I am currently an LIS student at Wayne State University in Detroit, MI. I also work at the Kettering University Library in the serials and circulation departments. Kettering University, formerly General Motors Institute of Technology, is primarily an engineering college in Flint, MI. I need some help with an assignment that I have in school. I am taking Introduction to Information Profession 6010 and I have to interview a librarian that has been in the field for at least two years. The professor stated that we could not interview anyone that we work with. I arranged to interview an area librarian that has had a very long and interesting career but that didn’t work out. My Assignment – “Library Leaders Paper. Interview an information professional that has been in the field at least 2 years. Ask them at least 10 questions that cover their education, work experience, goals, why they entered the profession, expectations of the profession, thoughts to the future, etc. Write at least 1500 words and include a graduate-level discussion about what was learned from this interview process (which encompasses at least 400 of the 1500 words). Include the questions asked of the Leader. (LIS6010 Professor Schroeder)” If anyone is willing to help me out I would surely appreciate it. I have listed the questions below that I have come up with. Thank You, Dawn M.

Why did you want to become a librarian? At what point in your life did you decide that you wanted to become a librarian? Was it after you were already in another profession? Where did you receive you library degree from? What type of librarian did you become? Did that differ from the type of librarian you thought you wanted to become in graduate school? Are you happy in your current position or do you want to pursue type of librarianship in the future? What types of employment have you had since getting your degree? What do you like and dislike about your job? What do you think the future of libraries and librarianship will be? Do you have any thoughts or advice for someone just entering the profession?
