Congratulations, you’ve hired a new law librarian! So now all that needs be done is provide orientation and training and let them loose, right? No, it is not that simple to create and maintain satisfactory work relationships.

From most accounts I’ve read it takes at least a year for a new hire to feel comfortable in his or her job, and during that time the employer bears the expense of training. A new hire requires an investment of time and energy by all parties, even when the hire is an experienced professional. In other words, the library employer doesn’t want to lose the librarian just as he or she has gotten up to speed.
