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.

CLA Preconference: *Uncommit: How Do We Stop So We Can Start Doing What Really Matters* [$] Affiliate Event, Preconference/Institute, Ticketed event Marriott Marquis San Francisco
Yerba Buena Salon 01-03
Description :

Libraries try to be everything to everyone. The challenge is taking on new initiatives that require new skill sets when we can’t bear to let anything go. In Jim Collins’ Good to Great
framework, he says great organizations are clear about the difference between their core values (which never change) and operating strategies and cultural practices (which endlessly adapt to a changing world). Within a changing landscape of what people need from libraries, we have to figure out what we do well and do that, and stop doing what others are already doing well. We have finite capacities and must choose how to create the best outcomes and impacts for our communities. Our core values haven’t changed, and we need to find new ways to use our natural assets to deliver services, value, and make a difference. It’s about delivering the value you’re meant to deliver and not just the conventional services you’ve always delivered. Please know that this session will be energizing and affirming. You’ll leave with confidence around how to get to the why of deciding to stop doing things in your library. You will be able to talk about your decisions in terms of abundance and not scarcity, in terms of creating greater impact and not taking something of value away from your community. Our guest speakers are Jan Sanders, Kent Oliver, Jane Light, and David Singleton. Cheryl Gould and Sam McBane Mulford will facilitate the workshop.
