Are you a new or aspiring manager? Are there questions about your role and responsibilities that you haven’t felt comfortable asking your employer, or are you unsure how to handle unmotivated employees, absent management, or patrons who blur the line of legally acceptable conduct? In this webinar, presented in a Q&A format, attendees will have the opportunity to ask all these questions and more. A panel of academic and public librarians of all management levels will share their expertise.
