Full Description

Successfully negotiating diverse workplace relationships is an essential job skill. In addition to our interactions with our co-workers, managers, and patrons, we are often called upon to be mentors and work with interns. At our next myMETRO SIG meeting, three of our colleagues will discuss their experiences with these relationships as well as the projects they have undertaken in these roles. Miranda McDermott will discuss her work in helping ACRL/NY mentees with job search skills and career direction. Joseph Coen will talk about an oral history index he developed with an LIS intern, and Emily Toder will discuss her taxonomy/web classification project for a private client.
