Demystifying Interim Leadership

Amy Barker, Kathy M Irwin

Research output: Contribution to conferencePosterpeer-review


In academic libraries, lengthy hiring processes for library leaders often mean that a librarian may be called upon to lead in an interim or acting capacity. Serving in this temporary leadership role can have many effects—both positive and negative—on a librarian’s career and well-being. In this panel discussion, recent interim library leaders reflect on their experiences and share best practices for performing in an interim leadership role at the middle- or upper-management level. Panelists will also share research they have conducted and survey data they have collected from interim library leaders.
