‘To Me, the World of a Librarian Was Fascinating’

What’s the difference between a soil scientist and a librarian? In the case of John Cruickshank, the difference was one conversation—a conversation that caused a “profound change” in his view of science and scientific research.

Currently the librarian at the Griffin Campus of the University of Georgia, John was destined for a career as a soil scientist until a meeting with a plant researcher gave him a new appreciation of libraries and librarians. That appreciation has fueled his interest in issues ranging from data curation to organization culture, his passion for special projects (he’s currently working on an oral history of an African-American community in Griffin), and his involvement in SLA, which has deepened since he became chair-elect of the Food, Agriculture & Nutrition Division.

John recently shared his views and experiences in an interview for SLA’s online magazine, Information Outlook. To see what John had to say, click here.
