Networking gets the job done! Discover what happens behind the closed doors of a library search committee - and how your professional (and personal) networks can make or break your prospects. Then learn how other librarians navigated the networking maze to land plum positions. With the insider scoop, practical pointers, and the opportunity to connect with both peers and mentors, you'll be able to put your network to work for you.
