You may take these for granted or they may be skills that you have learned and polished over the years in your chosen career as a librarian. But what indicators and signs show that you really are excellent at what you do?
1 – Your attention to detail. As they say the devil is in the detail and you never leave a page unturned in your quest to source the content anyone requests from you.
2 – You have great organisational skills when it comes to data and structure, otherwise how would you function so well in your role?
3 – You have a natural ability to extrapolate information by asking the right questions when a user needs assistance with their enquiry.
4 – You have carried out your own research and know your sources are trusted. You need to know your information and data is validated.
5 – You make sure the library and area you find yourself immersed in is fully visible to all those who need to find you and at the right times.
6 – You think beyond the traditional library! You consider how your organisation can benefit from integrating with your client base
7 – You build relationships with your suppliers to find cost effective and efficient methods.
8 – This may be obvious to some but you always listen first and then ask at least twice as many questions… it is after all, the Enquiry Interview!
