Tredway Library

Students Interested in Librarianship Visit John Deere and Moline Public Library

For several years, Tredway librarians have acted as informal advisors to students interested in pursuing careers in librarianship. This year, we have been a bit more deliberate in our efforts, creating a group for students called "Future Librarians." We have a list of recent Augustana grads who have gone into careers in libraries or archives and are willing to be mentors to our current students. Tredway Library also makes every effort to help students find employment in our library to further explore this as a career choice.

On April 30, five students visited two area libraries: the library at the John Deere World Headquarters and the Moline Public Library. At Deere, members of their library and information strategies team impressed us with the way that the skill set associated with librarianship can be described with many different job titles: Content Strategist, Data Analyst, Competitive Intelligence Strategist, and more. Our students were very excited about all the possibilities.

Then we visited the Moline Public Library and had a wonderful behind-the-scenes tour of this beautiful building with their new director, Lee Ann Fisher. Ms. Fisher helped us understand all the important roles a public library should fulfill and the varied opportunities for people interested in this work: from the very public work to the behind-the-scenes technical aspects. 

We are sharing this with you today because you may know students who have never considered librarianship as a career. Please suggest they talk to me or any other librarian. We will be glad to chat with them about this amazing career.
