New Members Discussion Group


This discussion group is a welcoming place for new members interested in academic and research libraries. This group offers a place to ask questions, make connections with other members, and start off on the right foot.  This discussion group also provides the opportunity for experienced librarians to mentor those incoming new faces by answering questions, advertising volunteer opportunities or other events, and offering advice as necessary.
