 Pathways to Leadership in the Library and Information WorldA volume from the proceedings of the 7th IFLA World Conference on Continuing Professional Development and Workplace Learning for the Information Professions, held in Johannesburg, South Africa in August 2007.

They focus on the topic of leadership in the library and information professions, providing an overview of institutes, programs and activities occurring around the world. Some are described in detail, outlining learning objectives, structure, recruitment and evaluation strategies; others summarise national and international initiatives.

These papers will provide valuable insights to anyone interested in workforce planning strategies aimed at addressing current shortages of library leaders, as well as those who may have experienced difficulties recruiting to leadership positions and now want to explore the best ways of developing and equipping their own staff with skills to enable them to become the leaders of the future.
