The benefits of earning a Master of Fine Arts to library leadership

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This chapter will explore the benefits of artistic training to library leadership. As traditional corporations increasingly value creative "right-brain" thinkers, in today's new economy, I propose that training in an artistic field, for example, earning a Masters in Fine Arts in Screenwriting, is actually a good management, and leadership training course for librarians.
