Staff Development: New Employee Orientation

This guide is to introduce new employees to their work environment and to acquaint them with the library organization as well as to provide helpful resources to make the orientation process a positive, informative and comfortable experience.

Welcome from our Dean

Welcome to Atkins!

Welcome to J. Murrey Atkins Library and UNC Charlotte. We are glad you are here. We hope you will find the information in this welcome guide helpful as you become oriented to the Library, UNC Charlotte, and the Charlotte area. Please let Denelle know if there are other topics we should cover in the orientation guide. Denelle sets up and advertises webinars and other professional development opportunities that are open to all. If you see an email announcement from her and are interested in the topic, please join the activity. We have a number of library-wide committees that help us get our work done, but allow employees from throughout the Library to work with others on something outside of their normal job responsibilities and have some fun. We provide the opportunity to join/change committees in the summer, but all committee meetings are open, so feel free to drop in on any of the committees to find out what interests you. You can find the list of committees on the Intranet.  The monthly All-Staff meeting is a way to hear speakers on topics of interest to us and to get up-to-date information on what is happening in the Library from me and others. You can ask questions as well. We also hold a “Conversation with the Dean” meeting each month, which is an opportunity to meet informally with me and make suggestions and ask questions while enjoying refreshments and relaxing activities. Anyone other than Associate Deans is invited to attend every month. It is a chance to get away from your regular activities for an hour, share your innovative ideas, and ask questions about whatever you have been pondering. I’m eager to improve our work life and our services.  I invite you to schedule a one-on-one meeting with me, so I can get to know you and support you in achieving your professional development and career goals. Contact Marquita Brown to get on my calendar.
