What’s the future of library leadership in Australia? Does your library have a plan to ensure staff have the skills and opportunities to be the next generation of library leaders?
Robert Knight OAM, President of the Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA), has taken leadership as the theme for his presidential year. ALIA is investigating where the library and information sector is performing well, and where there is room for improvement, in order to produce the NextGen Leadership Scorecard, highlighting where we all need to invest our energies going forward.
In order to assess the current position of the industry and the size of the gap between where we are now and their vision, ALIA is undertaking a survey.
The results of the survey will provide a snapshot of perception and sentiment. In addition, ALIA is putting out a call for case studies and examples of best practice to illustrate each of the eight characteristics highlighted in the issues paper.
The survey is open for responses now until 15 November 2019.
Email ALIA directly if you would like to contribute a case study or example from your library.
