Recruitment Tools for College Librarianship

Publication Date

June 2013


The purpose of the project was to develop recruitment tools which the ACRL College Libraries Section can utilize to attract library school students and new librarians to college librarianship. Many new librarians do not see the benefit to working in a college library and often decide it is not the best fit for them. Moreover, college librarians often have difficulty explaining the difference and the benefits between various types of academic librarianship. This project will assist with the recruitment of new librarians to college librarianship.
