In May 2001, WOM was officially organized as a subcommittee of CAAR, approved by the LAUC-SB membership, by adding subsection c to article VI, section 3/b/6, of the bylaws reading: “CAAR will appoint one of its members to chair a subcommittee that maintains a program to welcome, orient, and mentor librarians (WOM).”
WOM was created to assist librarians new to the profession and/or to the UCSB Libraries in facing the many challenges of a new position. Its scope broadened to include the exploration of professional development issues of interest to any, and all, librarians.
