This panel will discuss lessons learned from starting as a new leader of an established information literacy program. Learn from three librarians from different institutions about how they established trust, got to know the existing culture, and began the work of creatively re-envisioning existing programs. We will also share missteps made during the first year, and plans for the future. Participants will hear about successful endeavors and leave with tips for starting a new position in leadership within information literacy.

Participants will:
  • Be able to describe concrete guidelines for starting a new leadership position in information literacy.
  • Be able to identify common missteps from new leaders and ways to resolve them.
