What characteristics do you want to be known for as a law librarian? How do you define yourself professionally? Have you thought strategically about your professional identity, or your “brand”? This session will explain the concept of professional identity formation and how it can be used to create a personal vision of professional development or to support librarians you supervise or mentor. After a short panel presentation, attendees will have an opportunity to develop a plan, either for themselves or for an employee or mentee, to further develop their professional identity. There will also be an opportunity for peer-to-peer feedback on the proposed plan and a question-and-answer session with the panelists.
