I’ve been waiting for this…. Blogging Directors 7

Salt Lake

Helene Blowers blogs that the Salt Lake City Public Library is looking for a director, including:

…application instructions for the newly reopened Salt Lake City Public Library’s director search — Your application “package should include a paper resume and directions to your digital presence, blog, or social networking Web site” — you can definitely see a shift is occurring.

In my presentations for the last year or so I’ve been talking about the shift in LIS jobs and urging folks to get ready for the time when director or administrative duties will including use of social tools. That time is here! Thanks Helene.

    The funny thing is… that Salt Lake City Public is not with the blogs or the wikis or the IM….. And they need to be.

    I’m glad to see they are looking to get with the program.

    They need a leader who makes this a priority…

    That said… Nancy Tessman was a fantastic director and that whole library rocks.

    i’d like to know how many directors can even blog…..its scarey that people can’t even grasp that bit of 2.0 and they run the places.

    but yeah for me. i run my library now, and I do blog…so no worries.

    I love that this is finally happening. I have been including my blog on my resume since I started posting. I love that our passion for critical professional thought is actually being weighed in our value. Awesome.

    I too am glad to see this happening. Our library had a great review recently of our social networking approach by a MLIS student at UBC . I am the Deputy Director and have my own internal blog. We are very supportive of the approach in our organization. We are also lucky to have staff who are enthusiastic about both creating and supporting the environment that will enable us to reach patrons in the social networking environment.

    I calculate tons of number crunching for these types of games because I feel that history can show us what can happen in the future. I’m sure you know that it may be impossible to decipher the winning team in the NFL. This is why I recommend using trends for football.
