The ACRL New Members Discussion group is for new (and aspiring) academic librarians. We meet twice a year–at both ALA conferences–to chat about whatever is on our minds. It’s an opportunity for networking and a friendly place to ask any questions you have about succeeding in ACRL.

The event will be a moderated discussion about the intersection of gender and academic libraries. Topics for discussion could include: how gender affects library leadership; the relationship between gender and technological skills; personal experiences of gender-related issues on the job; the importance of gender diversity in library innovation, etc. The dynamics of the discussion will be driven by the unique experiences of the panelists. The panelist include: Chris Bourg (Stanford), Lea Engle (Texas A&M), Melia Erin Fritch (Kansas State), Chris Martin (North Dakota State), and Bess Sadler (Stanford).
