Managing the Multigenerational Librarian Workforce
Libraries are undergoing a massive shift in their workforce. The baby boomers are exiting the workforce which has generated an influx of Gen Y and millennials. Each generational group brings with it a working mindset that has been shaped, at least in part, by times during which its members were educated and spent their formative early-career years. For the librarian manager, it is important to understand the needs and perspectives of all the various generations and the career stages they are in, in order to effectively manage the library.
