Description

In this panel session, four women of color in tenure track faculty librarian positions will discuss their diverse responsibilities covering all areas of LIS: reference, instruction, collection management, archives, technical services/cataloging, and supervising employees. The panelists will discuss their current job responsibilities, research interests, and service in order to demystify tenure and speak honestly about the challenges and excitement about being on the tenure track. The panel will also speak extensively about how to find support, professional development, and mentoring through formal and informal channels both in and outside of their home institutions. The panel hopes to deliver an engaging “support session” for those who are currently in (or aspiring to be in) tenure track positions. Our ultimate goal is for participants to expand their network of fellow librarians of color in order to succeed as an early career faculty librarian.
