Starting a new job is always difficult, but there are unique challenges that new librarians face. This panel presentation featuring six first-year academic librarians will highlight some of the common experiences early-career librarians face, and suggestions of ways to improve the transition from student to professional librarian. Improving the onboarding process is not only important for new and early-career librarians to succeed, but also for the entire library organization as onboarding plays a key role in retention and organizational culture.
