Join ACRL at 1:00 p.m. Central on Tuesday, March 9, 2021, for the free ACRL Presents webcast “An Insider’s Guide to Preparing for Promotion: the Good, the Bad and the Ugly.”

ACRL’s Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Committee will lead this interactive discussion on the promotion process in academic libraries. The distinguished panelists will discuss all aspects of the promotion process including the value that promotion and tenure bring to librarianship, how to prepare your documentation, and where to find support from within your institutions or professional organizations. If you are new to the profession, or are facing the daunting task of beginning this process, this webinar will be of value to you. Challenges including the mysterious process of determining when you are ready, and dealing with the likelihood of imposter’s syndrome will also be discussed. The panelists invite you to submit your questions in advance through the online registration form, so they can shape the program best around the problems of greatest importance to attendees.
