Russo1LSU Libraries Associate Librarian and Instruction Coordinator Mike Russo is featured in an interview in the March 6th Library Journal (LJ). The LJ “Career Insights” series is highlighting the journal’s Movers & Shakers, asking each for career advice. Russo was named a Mover & Shaker by Library Journal in 2012 (see http://news.blogs.lib.lsu.edu/2012/03/mike-russo-named-2012-mover-shaker-by-library-journal/).

With the humor his colleagues know well, Mike begins his interview by insisting that he is short on skills, and ends it advising readers not to listen to him. In between, he discusses budget cuts, his mentors, library school, and gives valuable career advice.
