Current Topics Discussion Group @ 2009 Midwinter
Having trouble filling management positions? There has been an ongoing debate in academic libraries about the benefits of hiring from within vs. brining in someone from outside the organization with different experiences and new ideas. Has this dynamic changed? Want to know what other institutions are doing?
The ULS Current Topics Discussion Group will be considering these issues at ALA Midwinter on Saturday, January 24, from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. in the Colorado Conference Center Korbel Ballroom Room 3B. Laura Blessing, Director of Personnel Management at North Carolina State University Library will get us started by talking about their program of identifying and nurturing new librarians with an interest in management.
Please spread the word about the discussion and we hope to see you on Saturday!
Chair, Current Topics Discussion Group
