Thursday, June 6, 2013 – 5:30 PM to 8:00 PM: METRO & ACRL/NY Present: Demystifying the Working Life of a New Academic Librarian – What to Expect in the First Days, Weeks, Months, & Years

So you’ve accepted the offer. Now what? What is it like “when the feet hit the ground” for a new academic librarian? Are there some experiences that are common to many institutional contexts, and how do expectations differ between specific libraries and types of institutions? As a follow-up to the February 2013 event, “Demystifying the Hiring Process,” which looked at the hiring process from the perspective of academic library search committees, this event will provide concrete information about what a new academic librarian might expect from his/her working life during the first days, weeks, months, and years on the job from a panel of new and early-career librarians.
