Thoughts on the Next State Librarian

With the retirement date of State Librarian Janet Welch fast approaching, the New York State Education Department is undertaking a broad search for her successor.

To assist in finding the best person to lead in the information age, the State Education Department is asking NYSHEI, as well as other library groups, to offer a formal statement on the qualities, abilities and vision the next state librarian should possess.

Please help NYSHEI by offering your thoughts by adding a comment to this blog post or, if you prefer, by emailing subject line “next state librarian.”

This is an important opportunity for academic and research libraries to contribute their expertise to an important decision. Please do not hesitate to add your two cents.
