Speaker: Joyce Garczynski, Communications & Development Librarian, Towson University
Speaker: Leahkim Gannett, Communication & Performing Arts Librarian, University of California Santa Barbara

This program presented by two academic librarians, and coincidentally both mothers of identical twins, will explore what the research says about the impact of having children on an individual’s academic library career. The presenters will also lead a discussion about what individuals and ACRL can do to create better working conditions for parents.
