Interviewed by librarian Carmen Hendershott in her office on the second floor of 55 West 13th Street in New York City. John Aubry discusses his experiences in librarianship, including work at the College Board, the American Institute of Physics, the American Museum of Natural History, and Columbia University, as well as how he came to work at The New School. He describes his work with The New School’s library systems and databases; in particular, data migration and the shift to the ILS (integrated library systems), Aleph. He also describes The New School’s partnership with the South Manhattan library consortium, as well as the trend toward outsourcing in librarianship. Finally, Aubry discusses the planning and evolution of The New School’s current University Center Library.
