Presented by Megan Hodge and Nicole Spoor, June 7, 2017.
This webinar presents the findings of a qualitative study consisting of interviews with academic librarians who have served on hiring committees for middle-management positions, and with public services librarians who have recently made the transition from the front lines to their first supervisory position; and an analysis of the preferred and required qualifications in job ads for middle-management public services positions in academic libraries from the last five years. The presenters use these results to provide guidance on the steps frontline academic librarians can take in order to successfully translate their abilities, knowledge, and skills into their first supervisory position. Megan Hodgee is a Teaching & Learning Librarian at Virginia Commonwealth University. Nicole Spoor is the Business Librarian at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte.
