I Always Wanted to Direct!

About Timothy Hackman

Librarian for English & Linguistics, University of Maryland Libraries. Member of LES since 2006.

ACRL has accepted LES’s proposal to create about 3-6 minutes of video for broadcasting on YouTube, blogs, and whatever other venues might be appropriate. The video would consist of interviews of English department faculty in various institutions all answering the same question(s) about how they partner with their liaison librarian. We envision the end result to be fun and upbeat and to appeal to the targeted audiences: teaching faculty, administrators, current and future literature librarians, etc. The proposal, including the executive summary, a projected schedule, and budget, is attached here: ACRL Proposal.

We now need to form a team of people to see this project — working title “Focus on Literature Librarians” — through. Experience with video production is welcome but not necessary; the budget allows for professional editing and videographers. Creativity and enthusiasm are the most important qualifications.

If this project appeals to you please look over the proposal and then contact Liorah Golomb. Let her know if you have prior experience in video or filmmaking and whether you would be interested in being the team leader.

Congratulations to Liorah on this approved proposal!
