Subject: Recruitment Video Opportunity - Please distribute to your members!
Importance: High

Please distribute ASAP to all your unit members!

ARTS, CLS, RBMS, VRT -
As part of the Academic and Research Library Campaign (see
<http://www.ala.org/Content/NavigationMenu/Our_Association/Offices/Public_In
formation/Campaign_for_Americas_Libraries/Academic_and_Research_Library_Camp
aign/Academic_and_Research_Library_Campaign.htm>
http://www.ala.org/Content/NavigationMenu/Our_Association/Offices/Public_Inf
ormation/Campaign_for_Americas_Libraries/Academic_and_Research_Library_Campa
ign/Academic_and_Research_Library_Campaign.htm), we have the opportunity to
produce a 5 minute video focused on recruitment of academic and research
librarians. This opportunity has just arisen, and we must complete the
video by the end of August. (The ACRL/ARL Joint Task Force on Recruitment
will be finalizing the content of the video, once it is drafted by the film
producer.) The film producer is working in Los Angeles, but has arranged
for a Canadian to do some filming on Sunday, June 22 in Toronto. I am
placing him outside the ARTS, CLS, and RBMS June 22 programs, where he can
film volunteer academic and research librarians, before and after the
programs. (Times and locations of the programs are below.)

Please announce this opportunity at the ARTS/VRT, CLS, and RBMS
programs! Any librarians interested in appearing in the video should be at
one of these programs early, or stay afterwards. We need you to express
what makes your job special, what you like about being an academic/research
librarian, what you really like about your job, what inspired you to choose
this career. We hope viewers are attracted to our profession because of the
passion expressed by the librarians in the video, because the jobs sound so
interesting, and because they want to be associated with these people.

The objective is to communicate the fascinating diversity of jobs in
academic and research librarianship, that go beyond the usual images of the
public library circulation and reference desks, and computers and books in
rows; and that we want YOU to consider academic/research librarianship as a
desirable career choice. We want to show that whatever your interest or
passion, there is a niche for smart, service oriented people in academic and
research libraries, whether it is art, chemistry, film, ancient manuscripts,
Africana, Chinese, etc. Our video would show career opportunities that
might not be featured in a general library video, such as scholarly
collections, special collections in all formats, technology support,
cataloging, electronic database licensing, digitization and preservation of
collections, fundraising, grant writing, facility planning and management,
etc. Our audience would be more mature than middle and high schoolers. We
are interested in recruiting college and graduate students, PhD's without
the academic positions they thought they wanted, those looking for a more
satisfying second career, etc. We want to feature some young, hip academic
librarians, but also those more seasoned specialists; and librarians of all
shapes/sizes/ages/etc. The audience should see people like them, and people
with whom they would like to work.

Please encourage librarians who would like to tell our story to be
at one of these Sunday, June 22 programs early or late to participate!:

8:30am-Noon, ACRL CLS program (Westin Harbour Castle Hotel, Frontenac BR);
1:30-3:30pm, ACRL ARTS/ALA VRT program (Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel,
Dominion BR);
1:30-5:30pm, ACRL RBMS program (Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel, Conf Rm B/C).

Thank you for your assistance in helping us take advantage of the
extraordinary opportunity! Our ability to continue to deliver quality
service and collections to our users depends upon our attracting quality
people to academic and research libraries. You are our best recruiters!

thanks! Helen
