LIBRARY LEADERSHIP AND MANAGEMENT: PERSPECTIVES FROM THE FIELD

Anthony Shong-yu Chow, Melissa Rich

Abstract


Our study examines the results of 114 interviews with academic, public, school media, and special library administrators collected over a one-year period in North Carolina. Preliminary results suggest that there is a core set of traits shared by administrators across libraries although some variation occurs depending on library environment. Implications center on the ability to inform degree preparation programs and practice by identifying primary qualities of library administration in general and specific to academic, public, school library, and special libraries.
