Succession Planning in Canadian Academic Libraries


Succession Planning in Canadian Academic Libraries explores the current Canadian academic library environment, and the need for succession planning in that environment. The literature review demonstrates the lack of reported succession planning activities in Canadian academic libraries. Site visits and in-depth interviews with professional librarians at six libraries across Canada highlight best practices and barriers to succession planning. These best practices and barriers are addressed in individual chapters, with tips and strategies for library leaders.

  • Focuses on the Canadian academic library
  • Includes a comprehensive literature review on succession planning in academic libraries
  • Provides evidence-based approach to why succession planning is or is not happening in Canadian academic libraries
