The New Librarians Discussion Group (NLDG) of ACRL/NY is a forum in which new librarians (and future librarians) can come together with questions and concerns about the profession and share experiences and ideas with one another. The group will also host speakers to talk about their own experiences in all areas of library science. Additionally, the NLDG will aim to facilitate an informal mentoring program, with the aim of matching a new librarian to a more experienced colleague.Learn more about the New Librarians Discussion Group at our blog.

Any upcoming meetings or events will be posted on our homepage. Please follow us on Twitter @newlibrariansdg.
