STEM Librarianship, Liaison Librarianship, Promotion and Tenure
This presentation was given at the virtual STEM Librarians Collaborative Conference held on July 20, 2022.
Have you considered going up for promotion or in need of achieving tenure? Ever wondered how to manage your everyday duties as a STEM liaison librarian while simultaneously working on scholarship and service? Well look no further! Our session will address how to ace your next promotion and tenure while handling the multiple duties of STEM librarianship. In this short presentation, two STEM librarians will share their success stories in achieving both an early and late career promotion while balancing their subject liaison duties. Techniques will be highlighted to showcase how a Science Librarian collaborated with an Engineering & Computer Science Librarian to achieve their promotion goals to the Associate Librarian and University Librarian ranks.
During the session we will showcase the importance of how collaborating with your liaison librarian/s can be mutually beneficial for achieving promotion. In the examples that will be shared, how one balances their everyday duties in areas such as: diversity, equity, inclusion (DEI) in STEM librarianship; supporting international students; taking on data librarian roles and responsibilities; developing OER resources; and supporting research impact and metrics of success will be discussed.
