Abstract:

"In the past 30 years, the field of librarianship has increasingly recognized the importance of targeted programs for leadership development. The first of these were designed and offered by the Association of Research Libraries and evolved from their Management Skills Institutes. This book describes 18 programs that have been created to fulfill not only a need but also a growing demand for formal education and training programs. The chapters in this book discuss within a common framework the major programs that already exist. It also accomplishes another more important purpose: it effectively illuminates what needs to be done to ensure we will have the leaders needed for future success and sustainability."
