About this Group

👐 Anyone can view all content in the group, but only people who join it can post to it. Anyone can join to participate.

Purpose: Provides a venue for directing questions and concerns towards current and retired directors for open discussion. Possible topics could include leadership, library school education, major issues facing directors, preparing for an administrative role, positives and negatives of directing a library, and the thought processes of directors in day-to-day operations. The goal is to provide a group where directors and the curious alike can equally gain from the back and forth discussions, and educate people in the roles and experiences of directors.

This group is part of Core's Leadership and Management Section.

    Please excuse cross postings.


    This is a last call for contributions to the "E-Resource Round Up" column for volume 34, issue 1 of the Journal of Electronic Resources Librarianship (JERL). Submissions can be related to any aspect of electronic resources and their use in libraries, including in-person or virtual conference reports, professional discussion groups, meetings, and practices in using electronic resources in-house. While our libraries are facing many challenges with the recent pandemic, electronic resources may be more important than ever as we look for ways to continue our mission of serving our users. We would welcome submissions that address how libraries and librarians are using electronic resources to provide services to users in both the physical and virtual worlds and how we can successfully face short-term and long-term challenges in our profession.


    The editors would like to receive contributions to the column by Monday, November 29, 2021. Contributions should not be published elsewhere.


    If you have a submission or questions, please contact the column editors:
