Developing NextGen Leaders in Your Library and the Profession: Grow Your Own
ALA Annual Conference
Saturday, June 29, 2013 - 1:00pm to 2:30pm
Over the past decade or so, librarians have periodically turned their attention to the arrival of a new generation, first in their libraries and then in the profession. This recent cohort, variously referred to as NextGen, Millennials, or Generation Y, is now poised to enter leadership roles in libraries and professional organizations. This panel will discuss how the distinctive characteristics of these librarians might influence succession planning, library leadership, and the future of our profession.
