Back in the Stacks: Bringing Professional Organizations into Professional Life

When: 
Sunday, January 27, 2013
10:30 am to 11:30 am, US/Pacific

Our discussion panel at ALA Midwinter 2013 in the Westin Hotel, Elliot Bay room:

Where is the common ground between our roles in organizations like ACRL and our day-to-day work as academic librarians? How can we translate our professional service into practical skills from 9 to 5?

Join ACRL’s New Members Discussion Group in a moderated conversation about the relationship between our professional careers and our day jobs. A panel of four academic librarians will share their experiences, offer advice, and answer questions. The panel includes:

  • Suzy Palmer, Dean of the Greenwood Library at Longwood University
  • Coral Sheldon-Hess, Web Services Librarian at the University of Alaska Anchorage
  • Nan Schichtel, Information Literacy & Outreach Librarian at Grand Rapids (MI) Community College
  • Gene Springs, Business Information Services Librarian at Rutgers University Libraries.

We hope you will join us!
