The theme of this issue is “transitions”. Whether transitioning from student to professional or from one position of leadership to another, one will always encounter challenges and opportunities that are unexpected and that can reshape one’s view of self and of the profession. Three former ARL Diversity programs participants offer their reflections on what it’s like to transition from one setting to another within the library and information profession, and how their experiences in ARL programs informed their thinking and behaviors as they made those transitions. The issue concludes with a call for applications for the newest diversity recruitment initiative administered by ARL and funded by a generous grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Service (IMLS). This partnership between ARL, the Music Library Association (MLA), and five partner ARL member libraries seeks to recruit students from traditionally underrepresented ethnic and racial minority groups into music and performing arts librarianship.
