Building Blocks: Constructing Your Career Path through Networking, Branding, and Flexibility [Closed] Discussion/Interest group Hilton San Francisco Union Square
Franciscan A/B
Description :

Five librarians from different backgrounds, career paths, and geographic areas will share their unique experiences in building successful library careers. From public to academic to state libraries and first-career to second-career librarians, this panel will share perspectives on building strong networks and developing a professional brand, while remaining flexible and open to new opportunities for growth. Scholars will gain key takeaways they can implement immediately in their career development. Each panel member will take scholars down their unique career paths to show how networking, brand-building, and flexibility work together to transform a career path. For example, Andrea thought she was going to be a digital archivist but she is now working on collection management. Madeline expanded her role as a Library Fellow to include being a diversity advocate on her campus and in the profession as a whole. Barbara began working with businesses, job seekers, and professionals in the community after a stint in Youth Services. April started her career as a corporate attorney and left to become an academic librarian. Jason currently works as Outreach Coordinator but has previously held positions as a workforce trainer, employment specialist, and educator. The paths will converge in the middle of the session to provide scholars with key takeaways they can implement immediately in their career development. Additionally, participants will be encouraged to ask questions and get answers about all the aspects of librarianship that they won’t learn in school. Note this Spectrum Institute event is open only to current Spectrum Scholars, and invited alumni and guests.

CANCELLED From Recruiting to Mentoring: Transformative (AASL ESLS) Discussion/Interest group Marriott Marquis San Francisco
Yerba Buena Salon 13-15
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.
