The Transitions

The Transitions is a mentoring and support group for information professionals, primarily in visual resources and art librarianship, who are in a transitional career phase. Whether just starting out, seeking a mid-career adjustment, suffering from job loss, or retired, mutual assistance can be found by joining in. A Google Group and a LinkedIn Group provide a private and public forum to discuss issues of concern, share experiences, keep in touch with colleagues, post documents of interest, and access relevant resources. The goal is to provide moral support, practical career management information (job searching, networking, volunteer opportunities, etc.), and to stay connected with like-minded colleagues and pertinent professional organizations.
