Library Management Skills Institute 1
The Library Management Skills Institute 1: The Manager (LMSI 1) is our most requested institute. This workshop is considered the seminal management development experience across the library community. It was originally designed over 40 years ago on a solid foundation of tried-and true management principles and guided by best practices in libraries. Since then, DJA has infused the LMSI 1 with a wide range of new voices and modern theory that brings the workshop to our present context. Our newest iteration is re-imagined to empower busy learners in a virtual environment.
The LMSI 1 is facilitated fully online with both synchronous and asynchronous components. Over the course of 3 weeks, participants will engage on their own with videos and exercises (7–9 hours). The full cohort will gather live with expert DJA faculty for 4 live sessions (9 hours total) to build their learning together, dive deeper into the material, and apply new skills.
