Abstract

Questions covered in most of the profiles include: AEDS 9,3 (1) Professional qualifications and previous work experience of the interviewee; (2) For non-native Chinese speakers, how and why the interviewee developed an interest in and decided to pursue the study of the Chinese language and culture; (3) A typical day in the interviewee’s work setting; (4) Description of the Chinese or East Asian collection with which the interviewee works; (5) Description of the collection or institution’s typical users; (6) Preparation for the interviewee’s current role; (7) To which professional or scholarly associations the interviewee belongs; (8) What aspect(s) of the interviewee’s position he/she finds most interesting or rewarding. Since many of the interviews were conducted face-to-face, the questions varied among the chapters. The three authors utilize a similar methodological approach in Conversations with Leading Academic and Research Library Directors (2019). Interviewee Harald Kraemer (Chapter 32) notes the importance of the use of questions to engage museum goers. This work raises questions for the reader: What was the total number of LAMs that were contacted for participation in this collection? What percentage were actually profiled?
