Information Literacy Coordinator Search

Bob told the committee about the four candidates for the position and their interview dates. After reviewing the job announcement the committee thought about several questions that could be asked during their time with each candidate. A list of the questions suggested by the committee will be forwarded to them under separate cover. The committee also suggested that a few other librarians who have strong interest in the area to join them at the meeting with each of the candidates.
