Professional Development Webinar Series

Title: Bottoms Up: How Early-Career Librarians & Archivists United to Empower Each Other

Date: Thursday, June 8, 2023

Time: 1 - 2pm

Registration Link:

Program Description:

Finding your way in a new job can be difficult, especially when you’re confronted with brand-new requirements to move up in rank. In this interactive webinar, librarians and archivists from Northern Arizona University’s Cline Library share their woes and wins advocating for early career professional support. Staff members from disparate departments banded together to collectively figure out how best to approach an overwhelming promotion process. Under the banner of the newly formalized Committee for New Academic Professionals (CNAPS), the presenters overcame these challenges by inspiring each other to lead change from the bottom up and create a path for mentoring and advocacy for current and future library workers. Participants will leave the session ready to be changemakers empowered to lead, regardless of their role or rank.
