Leadership & Career Development Program (LCDP)

Background

Share Share   Print

ARL launched the Leadership and Career Development Program in 1997. Over the course of seven LCDP offerings, 119 librarians have completed the program and a large percentage of them have either been promoted within their libraries or have assumed significantly expanded responsibilities within their institutions.

The program curriculum is tied directly to ARL's strategic directions:

  • Influencing public policies
  • Reshaping scholarly communication
  • Transforming research libraries, including the roles of staff, and shifting collections and services
