Speaker: Kyle Denlinger, eLearning Librarian, Wake Forest University
Speaker: Wm. Joseph Thomas, Assistant Director for Research and Scholarly Communication, East Carolina University
Description: In collaboration, DLS and ULS bring together academic librarians to speak about their roles as leaders within their institutions, not through administrative authority but through innovation and creativity, with special emphasis on the changing landscapes of digital research and distance learning. Panelists will discuss their experiences including: communicating effectively to foster innovation; developing a self-awareness of leadership potential while recognizing that potential in others; and building coalitions horizontally and vertically within an organization.
