[Edit: Someone wrote to tell me that you may lose your comment if you don't fill in your name, e-mail address and web site as they are apparently set as required fields. If you would like your comment to be anonymous because you are job seeking or for whatever reason, you can always be "Bill Gates, firstname.lastname@example.org, http://www.microsoft.com". But then again, why would you be job searching then?]
Tomorrow’s the first day of the conference and I’ve spent last night and this afternoon visiting with some colleagues who are new librarians here in Ottawa, asking about what messages they would send to the senior managers and decision-makers who will be at this conference if they could.
I may share some of those thoughts later but right now, I’d appreciate if anyone reading this would take a minute to share any thoughts you may have on any aspect of HR as it relates to libraries – from what you get (and don’t get) in library school to the job libraries are doing (or not doing) in preparing their new employees for their work to the job they’re doing (or not doing) in terms of even having positions available.
