Guests on The Librarian Linkover podcast have master’s degrees in library and information science and are leading large libraries/library organizations, have started businesses or have taken their skills to industry to do non-library things. They highlight the array of skills that librarians use in leadership roles in libraries, as well as how they use their library degrees to work in other industries. My guests are changing the paradigm on how we perceive the value of librarians’ skills and on recognizing the value that library leaders bring to the table.
The host, Lorene Kennard, has worked in leadership roles in corporate, public and academic libraries, as well as, owned a freelance research business. Lorene has also held leadership roles in professional associations. The Librarian Linkover podcast is showing that our skills can be used in any setting. The Librarian Linkover is changing the way hiring managers view our skills and giving librarians more employment options to consider.
