Here we are on May 31 and I just realized that I was derelict in sharing with you all my list of “must read” articles for the month. As they say, it is better to be late than never. Luckily, the day is not quite done where I am sitting, so I will chalk this one up to making it in just under the wire.  Here’s hoping some of these resonate with you.

This month’s focus: Library Leadership!

One of the great pioneers in leadership studies, Warren Bennis, was known for saying that the difference between managers and leaders was one of perspective. This collection of recommended readings will be about the leadership difference.  You can access this month’s list here.

For those of you who will be attending this year’s Special Libraries Association annual conference in Baltimore, I will be speaking on the topic of library leadership.  Join me and my co-presenter Barbara Hirsh on Monday, June 11th at 2:15 PM ET for Best Practices to Foster Leadership within Your Organization.  You can get more details here.
