Distance Learning Librarians: Their Shared Vision
Casey, Anne Marie
Journal of Library & Information Services In Distance Learning, v3 n1 p3-22 2009
Shared vision is a component of leadership that fosters innovation through buy-in at all levels of the organization. At times, people see a need for innovation but do not have the power to make changes on their own. Many librarians in academic institutions that were early adopters of distance learning envisioned a need for new services that were tailored to off-campus students. This study examines shared vision among librarians through a content analysis of planning documents from early distance learning library programs. It offers a shared vision model relevant to the study and application of leadership. (Contains 3 tables and 2 figures.)
