Essential Leadership Tools for Public, Academic, and
Special Libraries to be Presented at LLAMA Seminar
Libraries are in a constant state of flux.
These are familiar words we have heard time
and again over the last several years. As the
institutions and communities we serve have
evolved, our libraries have transitioned to
meet their needs. With change also comes
the potential for new opportunities for our
libraries to develop new spaces and services.
Effective leadership is often the key to the
success of change in any organization.
The LLAMA Leadership Development
Committee has brought together a panel
of three notable names for the LLAMA
Leadership Development Seminar: Essential
Leadership Tools for a Public, Academic or
Special Library, to be held Sunday, February
11, 8:30 - 10:30 a.m., in CCC Room 304.
Each speaker brings extensive experience in
the leadership of libraries. From their experience in public, academic, and special libraries,
we will learn about essential tools for leading
our institutions.
Recipient of the 2017 American Library
Association Equality Award, Haipeng Li's
leadership has helped move our libraries toward a more diverse and inclusive profession.
As University Librarian for the University of
California Merced, Li continues an extensive
career in librarianship. By leading academic
libraries in Hong Kong, China, and New Jersey, Li's experience brings a global perspective
into the changing needs of academia.

(l to r) Haipeng Li, Jill Bourne
and Pat Wagner will participate
in the LLAMA Leadership
Development Seminar.

Pat Wagner has worked in professional
development for over four decades, providing
training and education for librarians. With a

long history with the Special Library Association, Wagner has a unique insight into the issues of organizational design, user experience,

and leadership of libraries. As a manager and
consultant with Pattern Research Inc., she
has developed programs, webinars, and other
services, making her a valuable resource on the
leadership experience of special libraries.
In 2017 Jill Bourne was recognized as Librarian of the Year by the Library Journal for
her work leading the San José Public Library
(SJPL). As city librarian, Bourne led a turnaround of the SJPL, developing new services,
opening new libraries and spaces enriched with
emerging technologies. By building relationships with local government, notable Silicon
Valley tech firms, and regional universities,
Bourne's leadership has transformed SJPL into
the vibrant hub of knowledge it is today.

the kitchen classroom, including nutrition
for disease prevention and consumer skills

health benefits of cooking from scratch. At

cooking demonstrations from top chefs
