Full Session Description (as long as you would like):
This session presents best practices, models and recommendations to help new librarians develop their careers. It speaks to the concerns experienced by new professionals regarding rapidly changing skills to help them secure jobs. Additionally, strategies for successful education paths and participation in library associations are also included. Attendees will walk away with practical ideas to tailor to their own needs and situations. Often new librarians express their desire to know ‘how others made it.’ Daily, we can read blog posts and messages asking what is needed to find a job, to be part of a committee at a library association, and how to interact within various library environments. This webinar will explore answers to these, and will direct attendees to tested and proved resources. A Q&A section is included to encourage conversation between speakers and attendees. The program is presented by IFLA Continuing Professional Development in the Workplace and Learning (CPDWL) and IFLA New Professionals Special Interest Group (NPSIG). Speakers:
Prof. Dr. Claudia Lux, IFLA Past President and Director General of the Foundation Central and Regional Library Berlin.
Anca Rapeanu, Cristina Vaileanu, Monica Avram from IREX, Biblionet Romania.
