Abstract

The Special Libraries association (SLA), celebrating its 100th year in 2009, has long considered leadership qualities to be an important characteristic of members of the association. This paper describes the structure of the organization and types of leadership programs available to SLA members and reviews some of the research done on the individual potential leadership characteristics of librarians and on special librarians in particular. A brief summary of the current activities of SLA and its positioning for the future are also provided.
