Book Description :

"It is not only important for Millennial librarians to have a base of literature from which they can draw information, guidance, or inspiration, it is also important for librarians from other generations to understand what Millennial librarians have to offer and how their entree into library leadership will affect the profession. This book, with chapters written by librarians from every generation and from libraries of all kinds, seeks to fill that void. Section I (Why Lead? The Need for Millennial Leadership in Libraries) brings together chapters that focus on the need for a new generation of leaders in libraries. The chapters in Section II (Workplace Relationships: Bridging the Gap between Generations) touch on library relationships across generations: the good, the bad, and the ugly. Section III (Millennial Leadership Skills, Styles, Strategies, and Stories) includes chapters that detail how Millennial leaders work in libraries, from outreach and marketing to blogging and collaborating. Section IV (Get them in the Door: Bringing Millennial Leadership into the Library (or Not)), while short, is an essential read for any current library leaders or administrators seeking to bring Millennial leaders into the library, or to cultivate the Millennial leadership that's already found in the library. Finally, Section V (Plotting, Planning, Persevering: Making the Most of a Millennial Leader's Career) includes chapters on career planning for Millennial librarians"--Provided by the publisher.

This book explores the role millennials will play--as faculty, administrators, or staff members--in shaping the future of legal education, and what the academy can do to embrace the millennial generation as colleagues, not students. Section I brings together chapters that focus on the culture of law schools, and the need to embrace a new, forward-thinking and innovative way of defining what law schools are and do and how we educate students. The chapters in Section II focus on relationships: the relationships millennials in the academy have with ourselves, our institutions, and the community. Section III includes chapters that detail how millennial leaders work in the classroom, how they use things like feedback and assessment to change the dynamic in the classroom and to innovate law school pedagogy to educate well-rounded lawyers. Section IV is an essential read for anyone who spends time thinking about the current legal economy and law schools' roles in educating practice-ready lawyers. Finally, Section V includes chapters on change. Legal education has no choice but to evolve, and these authors present ideas on how to embrace millennial ideology to do just that. This book can be used to understand, guide, engage, mentor, and work with millennials to shape the next generation of excellent law school leaders.--Publisher.

Book Description :

Frankly, it’s not something we like to talk about. There is an unfortunate stigma to acknowledging workplace dysfunction, let alone trying to grapple with the problem. But negative behaviors such as incivility, toxicity, deviant behavior, workplace politics, and team and leadership dysfunction not only make the library a stressful workplace, they also run counter to the core values of librarianship. An important tool for library leaders and managers as well as library staff, this book examines these negative relationship-based issues and suggests practical, research-based solutions by discussing the importance of understanding oneself as related to the library workplace;identifying attributes specific to libraries that foster personal success;showing how organizational dysfunction is rooted in problems such as poor communication, inadequate leadership, and lack of employee engagement;breaking down relatable scenarios to analyze what’s behind them and how to defuse them, ranging from a gossipy coworker who fails to contribute to the organization to workplace bullying and mobbing;exploring causes, results, and potential solutions in the areas of cyberloafing, fraud, theft, and sabotage;delving into the importance of conflict management, surveying a variety of approaches and applications;examining the use of teams in libraries and the impact of favoritism, nepotism, and sexism; andproviding techniques for successful collaboration, leadership, organizational communication, and other key management topics. By tackling the dysfunctional library head on, managers as well as library workers who find themselves in a toxic situation will be poised to better meet library goals and move the library forward.

Part V focuses on the library staff roles, how they have changed, and how they are valued in relation to faculty and professional positions.
