Colorado Association of Libraries Conference (CALCon)
Have you been wondering if library management is for you? What is it like to be in an interim leadership position? In times of resource scarcity, long hiring processes, and temporary leaves, interim positions are common practice in libraries. Join us for a conversation about interim leadership positions. Our moderator and panelists, from both public and academic libraries, will share their experiences in interim roles, offer suggestions for being successful in an interim position, share their thoughts on the benefits and limitations of interim positions, and offer advice for starting as well as transitioning away from these positions when the time comes. There will be time for attendee questions and participation.
