Five ALCTS members were selected to participate in the 2014 American Library Association Leadership Institute. The Leadership Institute is a four-day program in which participants are immersed in education and programming that will help them learn leadership principles and interpersonal skills, and give them self-awareness and confidence that they can then apply in their own institutions.
The 2014 Leadership Institute Participants are:
David Gibbs, Head of Collection Development & Preservation, George Mason University Libraries, Fairfax, VA
Missy Laytham, Head of Acquisitions, Loyola/Notre Dame Library, Baltimore, MD
Susan Marcin, Head of E-Resources Management: Technologies & User Experience, Columbia University, New York, NY
