Confessions of a reference librarian: IAmRUSA launches interview series

CHICAGO — On October 28, the Reference and User Services Association (RUSA) debuted its first week-long interview session as a part of its IAmRUSA series. Each week IAmRUSA will feature a different interviewee for participants to ask questions about their professional careers, their passions and anything else involving librarianship. Hosted by ALA Connect, anyone interested may join the IAmRUSA community; participants do not need to be RUSA members.

If you are interested in participating as an interviewee, contact Kirk MacLeod at or Sarah Hammill at for more information.
