Leading Change in Academic Libraries is a collection of 20 change stories authored by academic librarians from different types of four-year institutions.

Librarians tell the story firsthand of how they managed major change in processes, functions, services, programs, or overall organizations using John Kotter's Eight-Stage Process of Creating Major Change as a framework for examining change at their institutions, measuring their successes and areas for improvement, and determining progress. In five sections-strategic planning, reorganization, culture change, new roles, and technological change-chapters discuss tackling common challenges such as fear, anxiety, change fatigue, complacency, unexpected changes of leadership, vacancies, and resistance; look at the results of their tactics; and provide effective practices they found.

Each section ends with a thorough analysis of the stories within and the most effective tips for leading that kind of change.
