Abstract

In the summer of 2017, the staff of Ladd Library and Muskie Archives at Bates College embarked upon a semester-long, bi weekly reading group. Facing the upcoming search for new leadership, we spent the Fall 2017 semester discussing a broad array of topics relevant to the profession as a whole and what we might consider for our own future. We asked all participants to engage with a growth mindset, and set down rules to push the conversation beyond “this is the way we’ve always done it” as a justification against change.
