Library Technology Guides reports that “The Library of Congress has awarded a major contract to further develop and implement a new, open-source IT platform that will revolutionize how the Library’s vast physical and digital collections are managed and made accessible for the public, Congress, Library employees and other institutions.

“This Core webinar will discuss the training and support middle managers received when they were new to their positions as well as the training they wish they had received, based on twenty interviews with current middle managers. We will talk about the range of experiences these middle managers had regarding onboarding, training, and professional development and share our ideas for improving new middle managers’ experiences.

Learning Outcomes:  By the end of this webinar, attendees will:

2. be able to contextualize their own level of training within this continuum; and
3. learn about what opportunities exist that they could advocate for, whether for themselves or managers they supervise.
Who Should Attend: Geared to academic library managers, including middle managers, and deans/directors. Both groups would better understand and be able to advocate for the training needs of managers in their library. …”
