This workshop will assist law library directors, with seven or fewer years of experience as directors, to serve as effective leaders in regard to the personnel, communication, budgetary, and management issues that commonly arise in academic environments. The program also will help participants develop strategies to foster productive relationships with other institutional administrators (including deans); integrate the law library fully into the curricular and scholarly life of the law school; communicate with all critical constituencies; and lead a library during times of institutional evolution and economic constraints. Through the program sessions and structured opportunities to engage one-on-one with experienced law library directors, participants will receive knowledge and guidance in regard to designing a professional growth plan; developing a scholarly agenda; and engaging in an appropriate range and balance of professional activities. The workshop will also provide participants with knowledge and strategies related to responding to the many challenges that commonly face directors, including workload, institutional relationships, and ethical dilemmas.
