The Florida Library Association (FLA) wants you to know what it’s like to be a librarian.
To give library students and other interested folks an idea of the typical workday of the Florida librarian, the FLA Library Personnel Recruitment Committee has put together the FLA Virtual Job Shadowing program.
Librarians will each choose a day to post on Twitter between April 11 and 22, adding the tag #libjobshadowFL to each tweet. Visit FLA Virtual Job Shadowing on Facebook to read biographies of participating tweeters. I’m on deck for April 15 – follow @librosee to see how much instruction, question answering, and coffee drinking I do in a day, or follow the #libjobshadowFL tag for up-to-the-minute status updates of all participating Florida librarians.
Let’s see just how typical librarians’ jobs really are!
