[Series] TMI #4 Maggie Johnson of Los Angeles Public Library

In this edition of TMI (two-minute interview), Senior Los Angeles Public Librarian Maggie Johnson speaks about the budget crisis in public libraries, and how being unable to hire recent graduates will affect the future of the public library.

Listening to Ms. Johnson describe the state of librarianship in the public library, is this the case for all information specializations? Will the current hiring market cause us to “lose a generation” of information professionals? How does this affect recruitment? How does this affect you?

  1. I think Ms. Johnson was exactly right when she said that if we can’t get a job… we’re going to go somewhere else. Some of us are still figuring out WHERE that will be, but it does put the libraries in a pickle. Thanks for sharing this!
