Dominican University GSLIS is offering a terrific series of lectures on the theme of Emerging Library Leaders for the 21st Century. From January through April, topics include grant writing, advocacy, leadership skills, and more. And the speaker line up is terrific: John Berry (LJ Editor), Kathryn Deiss (ACRL/ALA), Emily Sheketoff (ALA Washington Office), and more!
Additionally, two major annual lectures are also on offer this Spring. The 2008 Follett Lecture on the importance of libraries in the life of young children is coming up on February 6; the current Follett Chair (and lecturer on the 6th) is Steve Herb, former president of ALSC. On April 16, Rosalind Picard, MIT Media Lab, will present the 2008 Lazerow Lecture on technology and emotional intelligence.
