By popular demand, the Professional Development Committee is scheduling another conversation group with Tim Lincoln and Kim Herndon to continue the dialog from our April 22 meeting. Whether you are working remotely or on-campus, at a large institution or a small one, the question of how to rebuild, reinvite, and rethink the library as a service, as a place, and as a learning partner is an important one, made more challenging while living a daily reality filled with uncertainty. How do you handle burnout, in yourself and among your colleagues? How do you stay safe when interacting with patrons? How do you mourn what has been lost, while creating the next chapter for your library?
Join Kim Herndon, Dean of Samford University Library, and Tim Lincoln, Library Director and Associate Dean at Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary, as they discuss their current realities and the envisioned future for their libraries. Share your concerns, experiences, and connect with your colleagues in this informal conversation group. In order to foster a supportive environment to share with colleagues, this conversation will not be recorded. The conversation group meeting will take place on Thursday, July 15, 2021, at 12 p.m. CT.
