Libraries Announce Successful Close of 7th Biennial Institute for Early Career Librarians
The University of Minnesota Libraries are pleased to announce the completion of their seventh biennial Minnesota Institute for Early Career Librarians from Traditionally Underrepresented Groups. Held from July 10 to July 16, the 2010 Institute brought together 24 high-potential academic librarians from across the United States for a unique and intensive leadership-building opportunity. Throughout the week, the group participated in a curriculum focused on identifying personal strengths and fostering leadership skills, developing grant-writing skills, and emphasizing the importance of mentorship throughout a career in librarianship.
The group expands an active cohort of more than 150 graduates of the Institute, who maintain a strong, supportive professional network across North America. The U of M Libraries are proud to promote a standard of innovation and cultural inclusivity in academic librarianship through the legacy of the Institute and its visionary alumni, who are the future of field.
