ANMIG March Chat: Blended Technical Services Positions

ANMIG March Chat: Blended Technical Services Positions

When: March 19, 3 p.m. - 4 p.m. ET

More and more technical services positions include responsibilities outside of "typical" technical services work.  This can result from restructuring, downsizing, new projects, or responsibilities that were known during the  hiring process.  Responsibilities can range from rotations at public service  desks to teaching library instruction classes to digital initiatives or archives projects.

Join us on Wednesday, March 19 from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. ET to discuss technical services positions that have responsibilities outside of technical services blended into everyday responsibilities.  Come prepared with questions or success stories to share during this chat.  Erin Boyd, ANMIG Co-Chair, will be your host along with Elyssa Sanner, ANMIG Co-Vice Chair, as technical  support.  This chat is open to all ALA members.  To join the chat: http://connect.ala.org/node/219893.
