We are happy to have you "on board" with Northwestern University Libraries! The onboarding guide to Northwestern Libraries is a road map for the first six months of employment. It is intended as a tool for both the new employee and for his or her supervisor. The guide outlines the important steps and information needed to effectively navigate the library as an employee.
Onboarding tasks and critical information are presented in a timeline:
You will notice two columns in each of the timeline-driven onboarding sections: For the Employee and For the Supervisor. The tasks and information are assigned to the responsible party, but please review both lists.
Additional Onboarding Guides
These links will open in a new window.
During the first three months of employment, the Library Organizational Development Office will assist with the onboarding process and will be communicating with both the new employee and the supervisor during this period.
