Title: Sustaining your Organization’s Future: Mentoring and Succession Planning in Libraries
Guest Speaker: Julie Leuzinger, Head of Library Learning Services, and Jennifer Rowe, Social Sciences & Community Engagement Librarian, University of North Texas (UNT) Libraries
Date: Wednesday, March 14, 2018
Time: 10am CT / 9am MT

Description: Are you concerned about who will carry on the work when you leave your library? Would you like to have a network of mentors to guide you professionally? In the business sector, it has long been recognized that mentoring is beneficial to both the mentee and mentor, can result in greater organizational effectiveness, and can be used in conjunction with succession planning to ensure that the organization has a skilled pool of internal candidates who are prepared to fill vacancies and leadership roles. Julie Leuzinger and Jennifer Rowe will discuss results of a recent survey of librarians on the prevalence of succession and mentoring plans in academic, public, school, and special libraries and share conclusions, best practices, and takeaways for giving your organization a boost with increased mentoring and succession planning.
