"Collaboration zones, content production, data curation, digital humanities, digital literacy, emerging technologies, open publishing, repositories, research information management, and more — what’s a library director to do? Quick answer: Its all about leadership. Academic libraries and their leaders are challenged more than ever to be increasingly relevant to their communities, which is dominated by digital organizations, culture, and technology.

The speaker, a dean of a major academic library, will discuss strategies for moving libraries toward a new core of programs that enhance teaching, learning, and research. He will discuss new perspectives on librarianship as well as working with tools such as finances, human resources, your organization’s existing culture and values, technology, college and university policy, and more to generate your library’s agility. A lively conversation with the speaker and audience members is encouraged. "
