I had an interview with the department head and the Director. It was mostly a friendly chat. The position was part-time. I had a degree and was working on my master's in Information Sciences and needed experience. It was a win-win situation for both parties.

Basic interview questions about previous positions, experience, etc.

What education and experience do you have that qualifies you for this job?

If a student, a professor, and a public patron all had critical, immediate questions at the same time, what would you do?

All questions were standard, and what you would find online for any librarian position. Not heavy on the academics. Did get a question about the teacher who most influenced you and why. The most difficult part was doing the mock presentation for a staff that looked bored and a little tired of participating.
