Summary "Guidance for Librarians Transitioning to a New Environment offers practical advice for those hoping to transition into a different type or size of institution. Written by librarians who have successfully navigated such changes, the book encourages consideration of unexplored opportunities. Drawing on the authors' own experiences, as well as surveys and interviews conducted with those working in different types of libraries, the book will provide librarians with a field guide for surviving and thriving in their new environment. It will do so by making suggestions for how librarians can orient themselves to their new library, add context to their CV or resume, get started with presenting and publishing, and manage culture shock and emotions. Each chapter will also provide the opportunity for the librarian to reflect on relevant aspects of their own situation and move forward with the help of action items. Guidance for Librarians Transitioning to a New Environment is essential reading for librarians who are considering or in the process of making a career move, as well as those working on career planning. The book will also be helpful for library science school faculty and career counselors who are advising current students and library managers who want to help their new hires transition in the most effective way"-- Provided by publisher.
