The Alabama Association of College & Research Libraries is hosting a one-day event on Professional Growth in Academic Librarianship February 27, 2018, at Auburn University Montgomery Library. This event will discuss the importance of professional growth for academic librarians and how to practically communicate or show evidence of that growth in scholarly research, active professional service, and professional effectiveness, all of which is crucial for current academic librarians, or hopeful academic librarians seeking jobs. Additionally, there will be opportunities to discuss the particular challenges academic librarians face when navigating the formal advancement process (promotion, faculty advancement, tenure, etc.).
The registration fee covers breakfast and lunch, in addition to the keynote speakers, breakout sessions, portfolio review, and networking opportunities. A virtual broadcast of the keynote speakers will be made available for those unable to travel, and some training materials will be made publicly available after the event.
