In 2010 and 2011 I was fortunate to be able to attend the second and third Personal Digital Archiving conferences held at the Internet Archive in San Francisco, as a reporter for Information Today, and when I heard the talks there, it became obvious to me that they would form the basis for a great book. Fortunately, when I proposed it to John Bryans at Information Today, Inc., he agreed, and the project was off and running.
In the early morning hours of November 6, a fire broke out in the scanning center of the Internet Archive’s headquarters in San Francisco (click here to view photos).
For example, if you refer to “customers” in the special library context, but the academic library refers to “patrons”, modify your cover letter and resume using “patron”. This will facilitate the reader’s ability to draw connections between your experience and their position.
Be honest, confident, and professional. Show them that you have the skills and experience they need by using examples, and convince them that you really want their job (not just any job).
