Meredith writes an insightful post about blogging at work. I was intrigued to read/hear about her interviews recently. Library folk who hire: if you are not looking at a potential employees online presence, you should be! And if you don’t know how blogging, wikis and sites such as flickr are changing the profession, you better learn. You never know what types of questions interviewees may ask. For example:
Do you have a blogging policy at the library?
Does blogging count as publishing/contributing to the field at evaluation time?
What collaboration tools does the library use to enhance work?
What tools does the library use for its online presence?
AND speaking of, library administrators, have you looked at this lately? http://www.liscareer.com/cunningham_eiq.htm
