Making It Up As We Go Along: Creating and Building a Resilient Career
Librarians and information professionals are contending with a challenging environment in which traditional library job prospects are often dire and non-traditional jobs that don’t involve a “library” are springing up. Our job titles range from Chief Knowledge Officer to Data Stewardship Coordinator and Manager of Strategic Landscape Assessments. How do we keep our skills relevant, our value obvious and our attitude fresh in such a rapidly-changing career environment?
Two long-time info pros, Kim Dority of Dority & Associates and Mary Ellen Bates of Bates Information Services, bring their broad perspectives and lively presentation styles to address this question. Kim will focus on how to look at your career from a strategic perspective and build resiliency into your career plan. Mary Ellen will talk about building an intrapreneurial attitude and taking a new approach to communicating the value of information.
