Take your professional development to the next level, curb burnout, and seize new possibilities with a move to a wildly different organization. Join us for a session on growing your career "up" or "out" by transitioning to a different size or type of organization.

The presenters have worked in academic libraries (large and small, public and private); for library vendors; and in public libraries of varying sizes. Hear their perspectives on the opportunities, surprises, and lessons learned in changing up their work environs.


  • Identify opportunities for professional growth that a change in organizational type, structure, and size can provide. 

  • Determine whether you, too, can spur renewed growth in your professional development/career in a wildly different type library. 

  • Better evaluate the qualifications of applicants with experience in a much different setting.
