Responding to Fiscal Tensions and a Changing Educational Context: A Librarian Entrepreneur
Willmott, Kristen E.; Wall, Andrew F.
Journal of Cases in Educational Leadership, v15 n4 p85-95 Dec 2012
This case explores various entrepreneurial initiatives introduced by Dr. Ron Dow, dean of libraries, at a private, research-extensive institution in the northeastern United States. The case serves as an example of how entrepreneurial ideas can be applied within educational contexts, specifically, the academic support context of the university library. The accompanying teaching notes facilitate analysis of the potential and limits of entrepreneurial practice for educational leaders who operate within the ever-changing fiscal landscape of academe.
