On behalf of the Triangle Research Libraries Network (TRLN), I invite
you to identify an emerging leader to be an applicant for the TRLN
Management Academy, to be held in October 2011. This exciting program
prepares current or new mid-level managers in academic libraries to
operate with entrepreneurial and business acumen in the management of
financial and human resources. Appropriate candidates will be those you
identify as high potential/high talent librarians in the early stages of
a management career (for example, new department heads, assistant heads,
or team leaders). Nominees should already be grounded in the
fundamentals of supervision.
The program is designed with input from library directors to support
talent management and succession planning efforts by addressing gaps in
the preparation of librarians for management roles in the current
environment. In this unique program, designed in consultation with
DeEtta Jones-Young, organizational development consultant, academic
faculty from TRLN universities present sessions customized for a library
environment on the topics of:
•Organizational culture and diversity
•Strategy and leading change
•Influence and communication
The faculty for the Academy come from the TRLN institutions’ academic
faculty and administration. DeEtta Jones-Young serves as the Academy’s
facilitator. Library administrators/practitioners will serve as
panelists to provide a current context for application of the
program of study.
Tuition for non-members is $1,750 for the five-day intensive seminar -
October 24 – 28, 2011. Continental breakfast and lunch are included in
the tuition fee. Travel, lodging, and evening subsistence costs are not
Up to 30 participants will be accepted from academic libraries
throughout North America, with approximately one-half of the slots
allocated to TRLN member libraries. Candidates will submit applications
and selections will be made by a selection committee.
Applicants must provide a letter of support from the director along with
all application materials by July 22, 2011. Selections will be announced
August 5, 2011.
