ARL will host its Ninth Annual Leadership Symposium for master of library and information science (MLIS) students on Saturday and Sunday, January 26 and 27, 2013, in Seattle, Washington.

The Leadership Symposium curriculum will focus on topics related to the major strategic areas of ARL, as well as transitioning into, and building career networks in, research libraries. The program will include presentations from ARL program officers as well as human resource professionals in ARL member libraries. Registration for this event is open to any MLIS student free of charge, but space is very limited. [Registration is now closed.]

The 2013 Leadership Symposium will feature presentations on such topics as:

  • Current Trends in Information Policy
