Managing Human Resources in the library and information context: How do we want to work tomorrow?

10–11 August 2016
University of Toronto, Hart House, Canada

The Marketing & Management Section and the Law Libraries Section of IFLA, in collaboration with ASTED, invite you to a two-day satellite meeting taking place at the University of Toronto, for conversations relating to library human resource management in the 21st century.

The library environment is currently undergoing profound changes driven by a variety of factors, including, technological, economic, socio-political, and educational developments. At the heart of these changes we find our most valuable resource, the personnel working in libraries. Human resource management is therefore at the forefront of many complex issues and opportunities, which need to be understood, debated, and deliberated upon, in order to strengthen our organizations and to find new and dynamic solutions to problems currently facing libraries. We invite you to engage in a rich exchange of ideas on innovative and forward looking approaches to library human resource management initiatives, programs, issues, and policies.

Keynote Speaker: Guy Berthiaume, Librarian and Archivist of Canada
