Description:
How do you balance responsibilities in a job with multiple roles? This panel session will detail the challenges faced by librarians with split responsibilities in e-Resources and Research Instruction, and the approaches they take to maximize their efforts in both departments. Emphasis will be given to strategies which address time and resource constraints in the management of electronic resources.

Title: Wisdom from Former Newbies: Strategies to Overcome the Challenges of New Electronic Resources Librarians
(http://proposalspace.com/p/4549/s?key=cFjpH9S7x5Qr2S5S)
Description:
New electronic resources librarians face unique challenges and a steep learning curve. As relatively recent hires themselves, the three presenters will share their experiences, offer recommendations to overcome common hurdles, and focus on how lack of experience and training impacted their early work. Resources for new librarians will be shared.
