I was approached this spring to be the subject of a member profile for the Special Libraries Association's journal, Information Outlook. The resultant three-page article, entitled “For Career Growth, Forget the Label and Recognize the Opportunities,”(PDF) is in this month's issue. Suffice it to say that being profiled was truly an honor.
These profiles, which are now a monthly feature in Information Outlook, are helping us to see the diversity in SLA. I hope that some day SLA will take the collection of profiles (or pieces of them) and use them with the student chapters, as a way of demonstrating the roles that librarians (information professionals) have.
Thanks to SLA for the recognition! And thanks to Forrest Glenn Spencer for making it a cool experience.
