Welcome to The Librarians of AISL: the Interviews
It’s a new school year.
There are new AISL members to meet.
There are new (Independent) Ideas to pursue.
Why not learn from the experts? Us. That’s right.
With this blog post we are launching a series of interviews in which we hear from you, the members of AISL. Those who participate in the interview series will answer four questions and record their answers by video, audio, or in writing. The interviews will be shared on our blog, Independent Ideas. And we’d love for you to participate. Really!
Are you wondering about the four questions? I thought so!
1. Tell us about you and your school.
2. What is something you are working on right now that you are excited about?
3. What is a challenge you are facing right now?
4. Do you have any advice for a new Independent School Librarian?
That’s it. Easy, right? The answer is yes. It is. The best part is that whether we’ve been working in Independent School Libraries for decades, years, months, or even just a few weeks, we all have things to share. Sharing our knowledge and getting to know one another better is what this is all about.
Last night I dove into this project full speed ahead. The video was filmed in my backyard by my husband. I felt a little bit nervous and awkward. There have been some technical glitches along the way. But it’s a work in progress and we will all learn from my mistakes. 🙂
Claire Hazzard has been incredibly helpful in getting this going. Thanks, Claire!
Here it goes. The interview.

We are still working out the best way for members to submit 4-6 minute interviews. I used an iPad camera on the video setting and uploaded to youtube. Nothing fancy. Perhaps you have done something like this before and have suggestions?
Hoping to hear a lot of pings from my inbox.
