What role does the traditional hiring committee play in the academic library hiring process? Who serves? How do they prepare? What happens during the day-long interview process? And what happens after the candidate leaves—how are decisions made?

Gain insight from four veterans of the hiring process, whose experience derives from a variety of academic library contexts—institutions public & private; small & large. We’d also like to hear from you: what are your experiences as a member of a hiring committee, as a new hire or as a job candidate?

Panelists include:

Sebastian Derry, Library Director, College of Mount Saint Vincent

Beth Evans, Associate Professor/Electronic Services Librarian, Brooklyn College

Susanne Markgren, Digital Services Librarian, Purchase College, State University of New York

Jean Uhl, Associate Professor/Librarian, Long Island University-Post

The New Librarians Discussion Group (NLDG) of ACRL/NY is a forum in which new librarians (and future librarians) come together with questions and concerns about the profession and share experiences and ideas with one another. The Meet-n’-Greet is traditionally when ACRL/NY members and other individuals from the academic library community come together to learn together and to discuss what programs/topics they would like to see the NLDG address for the coming year. This event is co-sponsored by the ACRL/NY Mentoring Program. Light refreshments will be served.

All are welcome and the event is free of charge, although registration is required to facilitate access to the venue.
