For both new librarians and experienced veterans of the profession, the tenure and promotion process is often a mystery. There are so many uncertainties about building a dossier that accurately reflects ones contributions to the field and that the members of a promotion committee can send forward with pride. This work is a systematic guide to successfully navigating the tenure and promotion process. Taking the initiative and being proactive in the tenure process is emphasized here, along with presenting accomplishments in the best possible light. Subjects covered include the tenure track position, getting started on the right foot, in-house and job-related contributions, professional organizations, presentations, poster sessions and displays, writing for publication, service activities, and presentation of the dossier. A list of suggested further readings concludes each chapter.

Obtaining tenure and promotions stands as a fact of life for many academic librarians. However, the nuts and bolts of the process mystify many individuals. Writing in a clear and lively prose style, Cubberley (Univ. of Southern Mississippi) offers a useful "how to do it" guide deserving to become required reading by library school students and working professionals. Its nine chapters provide a clear introduction to the entire tenure and promotion process. Also, the author offers solid advice on networking, work-related tasks that are useful for vita building, professional organizations, conference presentations, and the publication process. Included within each chapter are fictional vignettes that illustrate how particular situations have a positive or negative effect on one's career. The final chapter clearly documents how to assemble a dossier, and the appendixes present examples of tenure and promotion documents, advertisements, letters of application, and resumes. Highly recommended for library schools and academic library collections.?Stephen L. Hupp, Univ. of Pittsburgh-Johnstown Lib.
