With more than 58 percent of all professional librarians scheduled to retire between 2005 and 2019, the library community's impending shortage of leaders has reached crisis proportions. Where will the next generation of library leaders come from? Who will teach them? What opportunities exist? These questions and others will be answered by Kathleen Burnett and Laurie Bonnici in their upcoming Dynix Institute Web seminar.
