The Librarian Has Left the Building: Keeping the Knowledge Alive through Succession Planning

When: 
Saturday, June 23, 2012
10:30 am to 12:00 pm

Timezone:
US/Pacific (-7)

Faced with a mass retirement of librarians, university libraries need to confront the loss of hundreds of years of subject, programmatic, and institutional knowledge, skills, and abilities. This potentially detrimental gap can be lessened and even avoided by fostering librarian leadership and implementing a succession plan. In this session, a group of diverse librarians and educators in higher education will discuss best practices in succession planning at their own institutions.
