"The Engagement of New Library Professionals in Leadership"

*As new library professionals make the transition from school to work,
they are likely to find opportunities to engage in leadership, either
within teams or in managerial positions. This study examines the
extent of their leadership engagement, which is viewed as their
interest in and willingness to take up leadership roles, as well as
the barriers and opportunities to leadership that they perceive to
exist within the workplace. What is their definition of the concept of
leadership? Furthermore, if they are not presently performing
leadership roles, do they view themselves as future leaders within
their immediate organization or the profession itself?

*When: Wednesday, September 22, 2010
Where: 2-09 Rutherford South, University of Alberta
(Rutherford Library North and South Humanities and Social Sciences)
Time: 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
