Are you a librarian eligible for promotion?  Wondering how the process works (or has changed since your last promotion), what's required, and how to go about putting together your dossier?

The Promotion Review Committee is holding a training session for all librarians who are currently eligible to apply for promotion.  All librarians and supervisors of librarians are welcome to attend.

For videos & minutes of older meetings, please visit the Staff Intranet.
