A great place to find great library consultants.
Recently I was looking through my LinkedIn feed and noticed that Cordelia Anderson, a fellow library consultant, mentioned she was soon to be providing a webinar for Consultants for Libraries. I thought I was familiar with this online directory, but after I visited the site, I realized it was a new consultant directory, so I thought I’d do some more investigating.
It turns out that it’s an online directory of library consultants created and maintained by Jami Yazdani, MLIS, (Founder of Consultants for Libraries & Chief Consultant at Yazdani Consulting & Facilitation). According to the About Us section, she states, “I wanted a directory that allowed me to manage my own listing and highlight my library-specific experience and expertise. I wanted to connect with a supportive community of consultants doing similar work. And I wanted to make it easy for folks from libraries, museums, and archives to find the right consultants.” This made me really want to sign up.
I have to admit that the look and feel of the website pulled me in! I am happy to say that I’m now listed in the directory along with a growing group of like-minded colleagues who want to get their names out there to provide consulting services to libraries.
