**** Please excuse cross-posting. ***The ALCTS New Membership Interest
Group (ANMIG) is seeking speakers to present at ALA Midwinter in Seattle on
Saturday, January 26th, 2019, from 4 p.m.- 5 p.m. ANMIG offers a forum for
new library professionals and library school students to network, exchange
ideas and discover the opportunities offered by ALCTS. Presentation topics
should be of interest to new library professionals and library school
students, and be approximately 10-15 minutes in length. There will be time
allowed for questions and discussion. Suggested topics include: - Anything
you wish you had known when beginning your career as a librarian.- Biggest
challenges faced in your first position, what you have done to overcome the
obstacles, and lessons learned for newcomers. - How to handle your first
library job interview; any experiences, advice, etc. for any type of
library. - Parts of your first librarian job that a) library school did not
prepare you for or b) were very different from how library school
described.- Advice you would give to new managers/supervisors. - How you
thrive and succeed in your career and professional life. Presenting during
this interest group meeting would be a great way for new/early career
librarians to familiarize themselves with presenting on a national scale.
The presentations can be less research based and more anecdotal, and do not
have to be as long as presentations made elsewhere. Please send your
presentation topic and a brief description to Xiping Liu ([log in to unmask]
<[log in to unmask]>) and Rachel Turner ([log in to unmask]
<[log in to unmask]>) by Tuesday, November 20th, 2018. We look forward
to hearing from you!*
