Mentorship Magic: Spectrum Edition [Closed] Discussion/Interest group Hilton San Francisco Union Square
Franciscan A/B
Description :

From the perspective of recent LIS graduates and new information professionals, we will explain how seeking professional support is essential to job satisfaction and career growth. Dawn will discuss how peers who are at a similar career stage can serve as mentors. She will share her experience reaching out to Hannah for peer-mentorship during the job interview process. In addition, she will highlight how Hannah and other Spectrum mentors have coached her through the job search process with concrete advice on topics such as interview strategies, assessing workplace culture, and making crucial career decisions. Hannah will discuss the advice she provided Dawn as a peer-mentor. She will also elaborate on finding allies and supporters in YALSA as something that has contributed greatly to job satisfaction, engagement, and new opportunities. The presenters will begin the panel with a friendly dialogue with current Spectrum participants to survey their specific job search and other professional anxieties. Doing so would help us address their concerns while explaining the importance of seeking mentors/supporters and learning how to connect with them. The following questions about the mentoring process will be covered:
-How does one connect with supporters/mentors in the field?
-How should mentees approach mentors with concerns or questions?
-Why is mentorship essential for furthering the careers of ALL library professionals from underrepresented backgrounds in the field?
Note this Spectrum Institute event is open only to current Spectrum Scholars, and invited alumni and guests.

CANCELLED From Recruiting to Mentoring: Transformative Affiliate Event Marriott Marquis San Francisco
Yerba Buena Salon 04
Description :

School library staffing around the country currently faces a wide range of challenges, from systems facing a shortage of credentialed candidates to other systems where school library positions have been eliminated. Additionally, licensure requirements vary widely from state to state and impact university preparation and school hiring decisions. As a result, school libraries may be left unstaffed or staffed by paraprofessionals or others unprepared for the challenges facing twenty-first century school libraries. How do we prepare new “leaders to transform teaching and learning” in this context? How and where should we be recruiting these leaders? These are issues facing school library supervisors and university preparation programs, yet they have significant implications for all K-12 education stakeholders concerned with preparing students who are workplace and college ready. Faced with these challenges, school systems and universities are exploring innovative paths to the recruitment, preparation and support of school library staff. In this session a panel of district library supervisors, state leaders, and library school faculty will share perspectives on the issue, strategies to identify and prepare library candidates, and highlight innovative efforts to prepare a new generation of school librarians who will be leaders in the transformation of teaching and learning.

The panel of district library supervisors and library school faculty will share perspectives on the issue, strategies to identify and prepare library candidates, and highlight innovative efforts to prepare a new generation of school librarians.
