This engaging program will address the new roles and changing landscapes that each of us faces every day, whatever our role. From transforming organizational cultures and perspectives, to creating services and spaces for emerging student and research needs, our libraries are in constant adjustment.
Lauren Pressley, ACRL Vice President/President Elect, Director of the University of Washington Tacoma Library and Associate Dean of University Libraries, will share her vision for leading the way toward growth and new ideas in academic libraries. We can all be positive forces for change in our environments, regardless of title.
