Get thee to a library school!

There is no question that we need to continue to promote the strengths of our profession if we want to recruit the brightest and the best. ACRL has put together a very useful recruitment page with a number of interesting resources for both recruiters and recruitees to use. There is even a very well done streaming video on academic librarianship, Faces of a Profession@Your Library, which is available for download (requires Real Video).

Recruiting to the Profession Video (streaming file, requires RealMedia player)
Streaming video highlighting the role of academic librarians and the satisfactions to be realized in the profession. Includes interviews with academic librarians who discuss what they do and why they made their career choices. This video is also available for download as a zipped file. After downloading the file must be uncompressed and can then be played using RealPlayer.
