“From Librarian to Proficient Manager: Uncovering the Transitional Journey”


Date & Time: Tuesday, November 4, 2014 2:00 pm Eastern Standard Time (New York, GMT-05:00) 

Presenter:  Michele Leininger, PhD candidate and teaching fellow at the University of Pittsburgh

Description: Many librarians find themselves challenged to make the transition into proficient managers, often without clear guidance. For her dissertation on front-line public library managers, Michele Leininger, a PhD candidate at the University of Pittsburgh, chose to investigate how and where new managers find the help they need. Through a series of diaries and interviews at one library system, Michele’s research tells both the individuals’ stories about how they learned and transitioned from librarians into managers, as well as the story of the library organization and its peer support network. Discover what the research has revealed and what it means for others interested in the transitional journey to proficient manager.
By the end of the webinar, participants will be able to understand:

* Michele’s approach to gathering the research data and why it’s important to public library management research.
* The experiences of the research participants, including the tools, processes, and preferences involved in their learning.
* How the library supported the peer managerial network, both formally and informally.
* The implications of the research for practitioners in the area of public library management.
