Switching Library Settings: A CALL Continuing Education and Mentorship Collaboration

The Mentorship and Continuing Education Committees are collaborating their efforts for a panel discussion on switching jobs. Recently, a number of CALL members have switched positions, where they have also switched library settings – for example, academic librarians have switched positions and moved to government libraries, firm libraries, and so on. 

Join us for a lively discussion and brownbag lunch, where our panelists will describe their experiences, discuss how they transitioned their skillset, and give advice to other librarians considering making a change.
