An interview with Andy Woodworth, Bobbi Newman and Buffy Hamilton! Tags: Interview New Professionals Buffy Hamilton Andy Woodworth Bobbi Newman

LISNPN is really pleased to present our first international interview! Andy Woodworth (aka Agnostic, Maybe), Buffy Hamilton (aka The Unquiet Librarian) and Bobbi Newman (aka Librarianbyday) have given us their views on the cultural differences between libraries in the UK and the US, on the state of libraries, on top tech tips, and on what they'd go back and say to their New Professionals self if they could. It's a fantastic interview, and the full thing is published in the forum where it's easier to read.

Andy, Bobbi and Buffy are three of the first people I had some really good Trans-Atlantic communication with, when I first started using Social Media. They're generous with their time, very nice, very influential, great speakers and their blogs (and twitter accounts) are essential subscribes for anyone who wants to engage with the Information Profession. We're chuffed they've answered our questions! It turns out collating and formatting all those answers is quite tricky - any mistakes are my own rather than theirs...

Head to the forum and read their responses now.

Here are their bios in a bit more detail:

Andy Woodworth is a public librarian in New Jersey. He was named a 2010 Mover and Shaker by Library Journal for his advocacy work and has successfully escaped the echo chamber as the creator of the internationally reported Facebook group ‘People for a Library Theme Ben & Jerry’s Flavor’. You can read more about him at his award winning blog ,Agnostic, Maybe and see what he’s up to on Twitter (@wawoodworth)

Bobbi Newman is a Digital Branch Manager in Columbus. She is a a librarian, teacher, presenter, writer, community builder, book lover, techno geek, and self-confessed video game junkie, as well as the Founder & Chair of the Transliteracy Interest Group, LITA, ALA and Founder of & Contributor to the Libraries and Transliteracy movement. Her blog, Librarianbyday.net, and twitter profile (@librarianbyday) are essential reading.

Buffy Hamilton is a media specialist/teacher-librarian at Creekview High School in Canton, Georgia, and she does stuff as a school librarian that wouldn’t believe. Multi-award winning and extremely web2 savvy, Buffy blogs at The Unquiet Librarian and can also be found on Twitter as @buffyjhamilton, where she describes herself as a "Fierce librarian and information maven who loves learning, social media, dogs, fabulous shoes, and good lip gloss"
