Pop Up What? Come learn how partnerships between library science educators and library science employers can break down traditional hiring barriers and improve access to career pathways and positions! Hennepin County Library’s recent partnership with the St. Catherine University MLIS program and Minneapolis Community & Technical College Library Information Technology AAS program resulted in two Pop Up Interview/Hiring events at each respective institution. We will examine the Human Resources support of non-traditional hiring practices that were instrumental in facilitating the collaborations, as well as the hosting and promotional efforts required of the Academic Library Science program faculty and administration. We plan to explore successes of the events, as well as lessons learned and opportunities for improvement! Time permitting, we would solicit input and ideas from audience members.
