Leadership Development in Transition: Steering the Ship from Helm and Deck
Saturday, July 11, 2009  |  3:30pm – 5:30pm  |  McCormick Place West W-196a

Librarians at all levels are challenged by the need for a new generation of leadership and for profound reshaping of the library as institution. Newer librarians full of enthusiasm and fresh ideas need organizational help to ensure their contributions have greatest impact. Senior librarians have administrative responsibility for the library’s future but need help in rethinking its structures. This program offers concrete suggestions about how library leadership can be shared in this transformative time.
