Are you a manager in an academic library? If so, ULS has a discussion group just for you! The Mid-Level Managers Discussion Group was established to provide a forum to discuss the unique challenges and responsibilities of managers in academic libraries. We meet at ALA Mid-Winter and Annual Conferences to brainstorm practical solutions for management issues, to share information, and to provide support to one another. Because not everyone can attend conferences, we also have a wiki where we share information virtually. Please visit http://wikis.ala.org/acrl/index.php/ULS/MidLevel to find information about training opportunities, links to change management resources, suggestions for professional reading, and examples of activities and exercises we’ve done during our discussion group meetings. Do you have an idea for a future activity or exercise? I’d love to hear about it! Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I hope to see you at a future discussion group meeting!
