The 14th Annual Library Leadership Institute announced

The 14th Annual Library Leadership Institute, Library Leadership in a Disruptive World: Today & Tomorrow, will be held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, 22 to 26 April 2016.

As usual, the Institute is organised by the University of Hong Kong Libraries, this year in conjunction with the iGroup, Monash University Malaysia Library and Taylor’s University Library.

This residential Institute will provide library directors and senior librarians from the Asia region with the unique opportunity to develop new skills in the volatile area of management and leadership in the information sector. The program will provide a cost effective means of accessing the excellent management training services provided by experts in the field from America, Australia, Singapore and Hong Kong.

This is an Institute requiring all attendees to be fully participative enabling them to explore their own leadership and management styles as well as learning new techniques from facilitators and from other attendees. The Institute will focus on the individual manager’s role in providing leadership within a complex and changing library environment.

English will be the mode of instruction, with limited Chinese translations supplementing.
