A publication from the Canadian Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences called "The Academy as Community: A Manual of Best Practices for Meeting the Needs of New Scholars" is available online at

http://www.fedcan.ca/english/policyandadvocacy/briefsandstatements/newscholars.cfm

and can be downloaded as a pdf file through the link on that web page.

It discusses hiring and tenure processes, community building, mentoring, and other items about new faculty members.
Most of it is relevent to all university disciplines, not just humanities and social sciences.
