by Aisha Conner-Gaten on Sun, Jun 8, 2014 at 07:23 pm

Hello!

My name is Aisha and I have signed on as a co-chair for the LLAMA HRS Emerging Trends Discussion Group for 2014. I am new to both LLAMA HRS and the profession as a whole but am very excited to be a part of this group! 

I wanted to start by simply offering an open call for agenda items for our group meeting on Saturday, June 28th at ALA Annual (see the ALA scheduler for event details). 

Hello!

My name is Aisha and I have signed on as a co-chair for the LLAMA HRS Emerging Trends Discussion Group for 2014. I am new to both LLAMA HRS and the profession as a whole but am very excited to be a part of this group! 

I wanted to start by simply offering an open call for agenda items for our group meeting on Saturday, June 28th at ALA Annual (see the ALA scheduler for event details). 

Personally, as a graduate student supervisor and library school staff member, I have encountered several instances that I would like to discuss going forward in the profession:

  • Hiring UG/Grad Students for Library Work

    • Preparation, Measuring skill sets

    • Diversity

  • Professional Development in Library Hiring

    • Value of Faculty Status/Publishing vs. Scholarly Services in candidates

    • Hybrid positions & embedded librarians

Feel free to reply to this post or contact me directly at aconner3@illinois.edu with questions or topics of concern.

I look forward to meeting everyone at ALA!

 

Sincerely,

Discussion Emerging Trends Discussion Group - 2011 Midwinter Meeting, San Diego

by Jenifer Abramson on Thu, Jan 6, 2011 at 07:37 pm

Colleagues,
 
The LLAMA HRS Emerging Trends Discussion Group will be meeting in San Diego on Saturday, January 8, from 1:30 - 3:30 p.m., in Room 22 of the San Diego Convention Center.

Colleagues,
 
The LLAMA HRS Emerging Trends Discussion Group will be meeting in San Diego on Saturday, January 8, from 1:30 - 3:30 p.m., in Room 22 of the San Diego Convention Center.

As with previous Midwinter discussions, attendees are asked to identify several current library human resource trends and, through subsequent discussion, decide on the top two or three for concurrent discussions at the Annual Meeting. 
 
You will recall the valuable conversations we had at the last annual meeting on succession planning and the effect changes in staffing had on morale. So please plan on attending and bring with you ideas and concerns - staffing, budget, training, leadership issues, mentoring, measuring skill sets, identifying core competencies, or just plain planning – whatever you would like to share and learn with your colleagues at annual.
 
To facilitate discussion, I am including the Committees' charge: The discussion group's purpose is to identify and discuss emerging trends in all aspects of human resources in all types of libraries and library workplaces. The meeting is open to anyone interested in human resources.
 
Please join us for stimulating discussions of relevant Human Resources topics; we always learn so much from each other. 
 
See you in San Diego,

Colleagues,

The LLAMA HRS Emerging Trends Discussion Group will meet in DC on Saturday, June 26, from 1:30 - 3:30 p.m., in the Hilton Washington, DuPont Room.  

At Midwinter in Boston, the DG attendees identified a group of current Libraries’ HR trends and, through subsequent communication, have voted on the top 3 for concurrent discussions at the DC meeting.  These are the topics:

1) How are you coping with changes in library staffing? Examples include: demographics, hybrid positions, scope creep in jobs, the nature of work itself, growing need for technology skills, consolidations, downsizing, and the like.  [Facilitated by Eileen Theodore-Shusta]

2) How are budget cuts affecting your staff and how are you coping with resulting morale concerns? Examples include hiring freezes, pay cuts, furloughs, layoffs, workload issues, and more. [Facilitated by Deb Sunday]

3) How have you incorporated succession management and leadership development into your planning? What strategies have you used to address these needs?  Describe more rigorous and structured approaches to succession planning and leadership development that you have encountered or heard about. Possibilities may include articulating management competencies, creating competency-based job descriptions, assessing and developing your “bench strength”.  [Facilitated by Shelley Phipps]

Please join us for stimulating discussions of these hot topics; we always learn so much from each other.  We’ll also be soliciting volunteers to serve as the next co-chairs of the Discussion Group.  If you’re interested, please feel free to let me know now, in the near future, or at the meeting in DC. 

Don’t hesitate to let me know if questions come to mind. I hope you’re enjoying the last weeks of spring, and all the best,

Susan
