This volume celebrates the first decade of Council on Library and Information Resources' (CLIR) Postdoctoral Fellowship Program by bringing together 20 past and present CLIR postdoctoral fellows to share their thoughts on their experiences, and more broadly, on the direction of academia. Each essay is a look into the working conditions associated with creating a new profession of expertise and responsibilities in response to emerging forms of scholarly communication and pedagogy. Following a foreword by Charles Henry and an introduction about the publication (John C. Maclachlan, Elizabeth A. Waraksa, and Christa Williford), this volume contains the following essays: (1) A Brief History of the CLIR Postdoctoral Fellowship Program (2004-the present) (Elizabeth A. Waraksa); (2) Postdoctoral Pedagogy (Lauren Coats and Elliott Shore); (3) The CLIR Postdoctoral Fellowship 10th Anniversary Survey (Jason J. Brodeur, John C. Maclachlan, and Jennifer M.

Parrott, and Katie Rawson) [Contains an appendix: Sample Job Descriptions.]; (5) Changing and Expanding Libraries: Exhibitions, Institutional Repositories, and the Future of Academia (Amy Chen, Sarah Pickle, and Heather Waldroup); (6) Libraries and the Research Data Management Landscape (Jodi Reeves Flores, Jason J.
