This book addresses the shortage of individuals attracted to professional careers in librarianship, and the subsequent consequences for leadership positions.
This much needed work addresses a topic of increasing importance and urgency: the shortage of individuals attracted to professional careers in librarianship, and the subsequent consequences for leadership positions, particularly library directorship. Through extensive interviews and a thorough review of the existing literature, the authors-all highly respected for their exceptional leadership and contributions to library science-assess what constitutes effective leadership and identify the traits needed by the next generation of academic and public library directors.

In response to a shortage of qualified individuals entering the field of librarianship, this text identifies the traits needed by the next generation of academic and public library directors. Following a review of the literature on library directorship, the authors cover (in separate chapters) those qualities needed for ARL, ACRL, and public libraries. They also describe various leadership assessment tools and discuss the outsourcing of the recruiting process to "headhunters." Annotation (c) Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
