NMRT (New Members Round Table) RoundTable
The New Members Roundtable (NMRT) Annual Program committee announces the first of three online programs planned for 2014-15. “The Art of Making Transitions in Your Librarian Career,” is set for Tuesday, December 2 at 12:00 pm (EST).
We invite you to join us as presenters Beth Ashmore and Jacquelyn Paulin share their personal knowledge of making successful career changes within the profession and discuss what to consider before making a move. The program will be accessible through Adobe Connect at http://ala.adobeconnect.com/r6g8798xp2u/. Please sign in early as space is limited to 100 participants.
Beth Ashmore, who began her career as an instruction librarian, is Metadata Librarian for Serials & Electronic Resources at Samford University Library in Birmingham, Alabama. She recently co-authored the book, The Librarian’s Guide to Negotiation, and maintains the website, The Researching Librarian.
Jacquelyn Paulin is a Reference Librarian for a contracting company in the Washington, DC metro area. Merging her background in technology, communication, and research into her library career has taken her to academic, non-profit, and government libraries.
The NMRT Annual Program committee sponsors online programs designed to support library professionals. In addition to “The Art of Making Transitions in Your Librarian Career,” the 2014-15 series will also include programs on negotiating your salary (March 3), and networking and your job hunt (June 9).
