An article written by Carol Parker, associate dean for Library and Information Technology, will be published in the peer-reviewed Journal of Academic Librarianship. The article is titled, "Leadership Development Programs for Academic Law Librarians," and will be included in a special issue titled, "Our Commitment to Building Leaders: Programs for Leadership in Academic and Special Libraries."

Following is the article's abstract:     
In 2003, the American Association of Law Libraries (AALL) identified leadership development as one of three primary goals for the organization during this decade. Motivated by a desire to provide leadership-training opportunities and expand mentoring programs, a special committee on leadership development created a Leadership Academy for AALL members. The two-day program challenges participants to increase self-awareness of leadership skills and opportunities, and provides them with strategies to emerge as leaders in their organizations and the profession. Academy participation initiates a yearlong program of formal mentoring and includes activities held during the AALL annual meeting.
