Basic Webinar: Training Needs for Middle Managers in Academic Libraries

CHICAGOJoin Core on Wednesday, September 28 at 1 p.m. CT for the webinar “Training Needs of Middle Managers in Academic Libraries”. This webinar, aimed at managers, deans and directors of university libraries, will discuss the training and support of middle managers received when they were new to their position as well as the training they would have liked to have received, based on twenty interviews with current middle managers. Two experienced university library administrators will talk about the range of experiences these middle managers have with onboarding, training, and professional development, and share our ideas for improving the experiences of new middle managers. They will also give time for members of the public to share their own experiences. By the end of the webinar, attendees will understand the range of opportunities their fellow middle managers have experienced, be able to contextualize their own level of training within this continuum, and learn what opportunities they could advocate on their behalf or on behalf of managers they supervise.
