Juggling Responsibilities: LES New Members Discussion Group at ALA 2010 Midwinter

Has your library recently asked you to take on "just one" more department or committee? Did you study literature, but now find yourself responsible for linguistics and composition studies? Perhaps your growing to-do list has kept you from your own research interests, collection management, or the latest professional literature? In this era of hiring freezes, budget cuts, and information gluts, librarians in the humanities must juggle a growing number of responsibilities.

Please join the LES New Members Discussion Group for a conversation on techniques for keeping current, favorite time-saving applications, and stress-busting tips. This discussion group is open to members new and old. We’ll be meeting on Saturday, January 16th from 4:00-5:30 in the Plymouth Room at the Hyatt Regency Boston.

We hope to see you there.

Co-chairs, Arianne Hartsell-Gundy (hartsea@muohio.edu) and Mary Thill (m-thill@neiu.edu)
