The goal of this assignment is to critically analyze the contributions of two library leaders, of the past and the present.
Part I: Students were to profile an individual who has made a major contribution in forwarding the mission of libraries. Names were selected from the people listed in the 100 of the Most Important Leaders We Had in the 20th Century article which we read earlier in the semester.
Part II: Students were to interview an information professional that has been in the field at least 2 years. We were to ask them at least 10 questions that cover their education, work experience, goals, why they entered the profession, expectation of the profession, thoughts to the future, etc.
Part III: Students were required to analyze issues facing your current library leader and historical figure that we chose. We were to address these issues in a 3-4 minute presentation to the class and include a one page handout.
