SPEC Kit, n260 Sep 2000
This SPEC (Systems and Procedures Exchange Center) Kit reports results of a survey of ARL (Association of Research Libraries) that examined the nature and structure of the interview process at large research and academic libraries in the United States and Canada. By determining the nature and structure of the interview, it is hoped that candidates will have a guide from which to draw in their preparation for an interview. Libraries will benefit from better-prepared candidates and from exposure to procedures and practices of other institutions. A copy of the questionnaire with tabulated results is presented. The following representative documents from participating libraries are included: (1) interview schedules form the University of Alabama, Brown University (Rhode Island), Colorado State University; (2) interview policies and procedures from the University of Delaware, McMaster University (Canada), and the University of New Mexico; (3) interview questions from the University of Houston, Indiana University, and Massachusetts Institute of Technology; (4) collateral information supplied to candidates from the University of California-Irvine, North Carolina State University, and Rutgers University (New Jersey); (6) announcement of candidate presentations from the University of Colorado, University of North Carolina, and Pennsylvania State University; and (6) forms to evaluate or rank candidates from the University of Colorado, University of Iowa, University of Michigan, and Michigan State University. (Contains 15 references.) (MES)
