PDA Event: Leading Together: Academic Library Consortia and Advocacy

Tuesday, September 20, 2022 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm

There is strength in a consortium voice and through the agency of the consortium the opportunity to lead together under a unified plan.  This presentation reviews the landscape of effective consortia advocacy work, while presenting an approach to developing an advocacy plan. Drawing from the recent book by the same title, participants will leave with a sense of options and opportunities to build a consistent message to influence and persuade throughout the consortium (or any group) for agreed-upon goals.

Irene M.H. Herold currently serves as the Dean of Libraries and University Librarian at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Virginia. With broad experience in personal, professional, and political advocacy at multiple levels, Leading Together: Academic Library Consortia and Advocacy is her second book.
