Kiyomi Deards, Assistant Professor and Science Librarian at University Libraries and Jolie Graybill, Associate Professor at University Libraries, contributed in the writing and editing of the book, “Succession Planning and Implementing in Libraries: Practices and Resources.”
This book provides information on the process of implementing succession planning in libraries. It provides insight on the challenges and possibilities of a succession plan’s effect on the success of library organizations.
Deards was a co-editor of the book along with Gene R. Springs, a business librarian from Ohio State University. Deards and Graybill worked together to write Chapter 5: The Role of Professional Protocols: Recruitment, Retention, and Service (pages 106-132).
This isn’t the first that time that we have acknowledged published works by these two library faculty members. In January, we recognized a published article in an issue of the Journal of Academic Librarianship written by Graybill. In November 2013 we also recognized Deards’ contribution to the published report Research Data Management: Principles, Practices, and Prospects.
