Last year, my assistant, Aspen Walker, asked me what I thought would be useful for her as she explored the library environment, and investigated paths to administrative positions. (Her background includes a recent MLIS, and years before that working in public relations.) I suggested that she interview a variety of library leaders, mostly around the metro area. She did so, and wrote up this report, which I suggested she share with anyone who might be interested. It's a good snapshot of several big trends in Colorado today, and is thus a good discussion piece. It's called "Trends, Tips & Techniques."
