For both new librarians and experienced veterans of the profession, the tenure and promotion process is often a mystery. There are so many uncertainties about building a dossier that accurately reflects ones contributions to the field and that the members of a promotion committee can send forward with pride. This work is a systematic guide to successfully navigating the tenure and promotion process. Taking the initiative and being proactive in the tenure process is emphasized here, along with presenting accomplishments in the best possible light. Subjects covered include the tenure track position, getting started on the right foot, in-house and job-related contributions, professional organizations, presentations, poster sessions and displays, writing for publication, service activities, and presentation of the dossier. A list of suggested further readings concludes each chapter.
