Join us for a panel discussion with librarians from colleges public and private, large and small, to hear about the challenges, opportunities, and rewards of applying for (and receiving) tenure. We will hear about the requirements for applying for tenure, how to assemble your file, working with your tenure committee, and managing your stress throughout the process.
