Cultivating Global Library Leadership

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation commissioned Arabella Advisors to elaborate a report studying the leadership training programs for libraries. Through interviews with 26 library experts from 20 countries, they identified 30 programs through which only in 2014, 900 librarians were trained.

The result is a  report presented last January that “describes leadership-training opportunities that exist internationally for librarians and identifies competencies and skills that librarians learn in these programs”.

As they say in the report, “tremendous potential exists in the library sector to meet community needs but that it can only be unlocked by effective and visionary leadership”.
