    Hello,
    I have an interview tomorrow for a LMS position. I've been reading up on things like MARC records, OPAC, inventories, and other things that I have to familiarize myself with. What questions could I expect in an interview? Should I bring any lesson plans? I have lesson plans that I prepared when I took classes, and the plans I have while I was a student teacher. Any information and insight would be greatly appreciated!
    Thanks!

    Nealolin, thanks for asking!
    Well, I did not get the position. I was nervous during the interview, and not too confident. I think it was because I knew I didn't have the right experience. I did have another interview for a curriculum specialist, and felt better after that interview. I got that job.

    Just curious...are you a certified library media specialist? I assume you are not because you said you needed to familiarize yourself with the basics of the positions (that is SO not an insult so please don't read it that way), and I was wondering if in your area they hired non-certified educators for such positions.

    No insult taken! You're right, I am not a certified LMS. (I am certified multiple subj., though - I know it's not the same:) ) There was someone working in this school's library that was not a certified LMS a few years back. She told me that they trained her. So, that's why I thought I had a chance.
