Interview with Samantha Hines
Samantha Schmehl Hines is the Social Science Librarian for the Mansfield Library at The University of Montana-Missoula. She writes and presents widely on issues of online library services, information literacy instruction, and library middle management, and is the author of Productivity for Librarians (2010, Chandos). She is the instructor for a class coming up with Library Juice Academy next month, Weeding the Academic Library with Confidence. I did an interview with Samantha about what will be covered in the class, what her background is that qualifies her to teach it, and a bit about her other interests.
