About This Title

It is not only important for Millennial librarians to have a base of literature from which they can draw information, guidance, or inspiration, it is also important for librarians from other generations to understand what Millennial librarians have to offer and how their entry into library leadership will affect the profession. This book, with chapters written by librarians from every generation and from libraries of all kinds, seeks to fill that void.

  • Section I: These chapters focus on the need for a new generation of leaders in libraries. They are written by librarians of all generations who explain why librarians should embrace this change.
  • Section II: In section two, the authors focus on the difference between generations and touch on how librarians must work together to bridge the gap between past, present and future.
  • Section III: This section includes chapters which detail how Millennial leaders work in libraries including outreach, marketing, blogging, and collaborating.
  • Section IV: The focus for this section is for current library leaders who are seeking to bring Millennial leaders into the library. Current library administration may have trouble recruiting the younger generation.
  • Section V: These chapters discuss career planning for Millennial librarians. The authors provide information on professional development, leadership training, and alternative leadership skills to the next generation of library leaders.
“Whether a veteran manager seeking reassurance or advice on mentoring the next generation, or a budding Millennial
leader seeking concrete guidance on how to build a meaningful and fulfilling career in the changing library landscape,
Millennial Leadership in Libraries offers something of value for everyone who cares about librarianship’s future.”Lora Johns | Law Library Journal
