Topics include:^L ^DBL Required knowledge and attitudes^L ^DBL Interviewing techniques^L ^DBL The role of technology^L ^DBL Interpersonal relationships^L ^DBL The need for business and management skills^L ^DBL And more These short essays are written mostly in an informal style that combines library philosophy and practical advice.
