Future Leaders' Views on Organizational Culture
Maloney, Krisellen; Antelman, Kristin; Arlitsch, Kenning; Butler, John
College & Research Libraries, v71 n4 p322-345 Jul 2010
Research libraries will continue to be affected by rapid and transformative changes in information technology and the networked environment for the foreseeable future. The pace and direction of these changes will profoundly challenge libraries and their staffs to respond effectively. This paper presents the results of a survey that was designed to discern the perceptions and preferences of future library leaders related to organizational cultures in these times of precipitous change. The study finds that future leaders of academic libraries perceive a significant gap between their current and preferred organizational cultures and that current organizational cultures limit their effectiveness.
