The Ontario Library Association is seeking an interim editor-in-chief for Open Shelf. This position is responsible for stewarding the vision of the magazine, coordinating the efforts of the editorial team and overseeing the smooth operation and timely publication of the magazine.
In North America, a master’s degree in library science is required for anyone wanting to be a professional librarian.
But does the degree (in all of its myriad forms) provide a solid practical and theoretical foundation for doing this form of work?
We are seeking four people from the library profession to participate in a virtual panel on this topic. We want to engage with a diverse group of panellists: Soon-to-be library school graduates, as well as early-, mid- and late-career professionals.
If you are interested in being one of our panellists, please email Martha Attridge Bufton (Open Shelf editor-in-chief) at firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, February 21, 2020.
