From the Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL):

The Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL) announces the publication of “Fostering Change: A Team-Based Guide” by Brianna Marshall, director of research services, University of California-Riverside Library; Dani Brecher Cook, director of teaching and learning, University of California-Riverside Library; and Cinthya Ippoliti, university librarian and director, Community College of Denver, Metropolitan State University of Denver, and University of Colorado-Denver. Developed over the course of a year with leadership from ACRL’s New Roles and Changing Landscapes Committee, this open access guide is a practical tool for teams immersed in the labor of leading change in the library and on campus.


Fostering Change takes you and your team step-by-step through understanding change, building engagement, and creating and instituting the change, allowing you to pick and choose different aspects of the process that resonate most. It’s intended to help place people at the center of every change process and give individuals across academic libraries the tools to spark, lead, and sustain change, no matter their organizational position. Fostering Change is packed with exercises, templates, and resources to use as you plan and execute change.
