Academic Librarians’ Leadership Institute

The Academic Librarians’ Leadership Institute has been tailored specifically for Associate-level academic librarians, to assist their growth so that they are well positioned to lead Canada’s university libraries into the future. This rich and engaging program enhances critical leadership capabilities, teaches valuable new skills and helps build strong networks across the country for Associate-level library leaders. The program helps participants to enhance their leadership strengths, develop and nurture their teams, effectively implement strategic plans, and navigate their libraries through change. To maximize learning and resource time effectively, online pre-readings of course material are provided. This allows for the majority of in-class time to be used for practice and application of the concepts presented. This is accomplished through application exercises (“wicked problems”), case study analysis, reflection, group break outs and collaborative discussion.
