Filling the Library Leadership Void: Institutional and Succession Planning (Paperback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


This comprehensive look at leadership development offers practical, ready-to-apply tools that practitioners can use at the organizational and individual levels to develop leadership potential among individuals already working within the library.

A library leadership crisis is impending: looking externally to fill leadership voids has not generated enough library leaders to fill the current vacancies, and the number of library leaders headed for retirement is increasing. By focusing on preparing qualified and capable individuals already employed at libraries, however, libraries can ensure that they maintain access to a talented pool of future leaders.

In Filling the Library Leadership Void, Kimberley L. Bugg-Allen provides a template for conceptualizing and building a comprehensive internal leadership development plan. She teaches readers how to define effective leadership that is tailored towards the unique needs of a library and provides information on how to plan for future leadership openings. Connecting professional development with organizational culture and succession planning makes the work of leadership development a shared responsibility among all library employees, and this guidebook will be useful for individuals working in all positions in the library in all stages of their careers.

* Offers a comprehensive look at library leadership and best practices for addressing current and impending leadership gaps with strategies for the individual, organizational, and association levels]

* Acts as a how-to-guide for individuals interested in developing a leadership program within their library

* Provides practical strategies on how to implement a localized leadership program
