Library Leadership in a World Community

Filed under: events,leadership — connie @ 12:19 pm

It’s too late for us to apply, but thought I would point out this event being hosted by Arizona State Library, Archives and Public Records:  Thinking Outside the Borders: Library Leadership in a World Community , February 18-20, 2007 being held in Phoenix and aimed at Mid-level to Senior Library Managers.  This three-day program is limited to 15 librarians from Arizona and 15 librarians from countries other than the U.S.   Librarians from outside the U.S. who complete the program receive a $1,000 debit card as scholarship to off-set travel costs.

The program is a pre-conference workshop to Transborder Library Forum 2007  being held in Tempe, Arizona February 20-24, 2007 by the Arizona State University Libraries.

It sounds to me a lot like Vicki’s Library Leaders Institute, with added emphasis on global thinking.

SLA Leadership Summit 2007

Filed under: events,leadership — anabel1 @ 7:44 pm

I want to draw your attention to the upcoming SLA Leadership Summit. It will be held in   Reno, Nevada, from January 24 to 27, 2007. The summit is primarily intended for SLA’s leaders – the presidents and presidents-elect of the chapters, chairs and chairs-elect of the divisions and SLA’s international board – but is open to anyone who is interested in developing their leadership skills. I’ve attended the last two summits and both have been very worthwhile. If you would like more information about the summit go to

I hope to see some of you in Reno.

The Faculty of Information Studies at the University of Toronto is holding an alumni tea to honour the 2006 November FIS grads on Wednesday, November 15, 2006, 4:00 – 5:30 p.m.   More details.

 I have been to a couple past alumni teas at FIS and found them to be a great way to connect with students, faculty, and fellow alumni.
