Hodge edits career-building advice book, “The Academic Librarian’s Toolkit”
VCU Libraries’ Assistant Head for Teaching and Learning Megan Hodge (right) served as editor of a new book from the American Library Association that focuses on building careers in academic librarianship.
According to ALA literature about the book, “The Future Academic Librarian’s Toolkit is a thorough handbook designed to guide you from library school through your first several years as an academic librarian. It can help you apply for your first position, find your bearings in your new job, establish yourself in the profession through scholarship and service, and transition to your next position. In addition, you will add important skills to your professional toolkit: advocating for yourself and your ideas, writing for publication, teaching effectively, connecting with faculty and students, and building your professional brand.”
