New Members Discussion Group (ACRL)
10:30 am to 11:30 am, US/Pacific
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; and Gene Springs, Business Information Services Librarian at Rutgers University Libraries.
