Please join the Role of the Professional Librarian in Technical Services Interest Group as we explore the challenges and opportunities of advancing to a higher administrative level in academic libraries. Have you ever wondered if you should make this move? Have you considered what it would take to reach that higher level? How can you be sure you’re on the right path? Three recently appointed administrators will discuss their move from department head to upper library administration. They will share the lessons learned from the search process and how they handled the inevitable transition issues. The panelists represent three viewpoints: Pixey Mosley made the move as an internal candidate; Paula Sullenger spent many years at one institution before becoming an administrator elsewhere, and Carmelita Pickett rose in responsibility at multiple institutions. The panelists will have advice and encouragement for your situation.
