As librarians we take pride in our long history of upholding and defending intellectual freedom, equitable access to information, privacy, lifelong learning, and many other important social values. But how often are we making management, leadership, and customer service decisions based on these essential values that are at the heart of libraries and librarianship? This presentation will review the current ideas of values-based leadership within business literature. We will then critically look at how we are doing the work of libraries and ask the hard question: Are we really doing our best? We will then consider how we can reinvigorate our professional work practices by placing the values of librarianship at the center of our leadership, management and customer service decisions.
