Managing the Library Video Project- Library Management Institute (LMI)


Videos are being sought to be included in a new media project, Managing the Library, which will be a web series featuring interviews with library directors and managers from across the country talking about what makes a library manager successful. The web series is scheduled to debut in the fall and will be publicly distributed.

LMI is seeking videos from libraries throughout the United States for inclusion in the series. The video should be no more than 12 minutes long and should be 1920 x 1080 Full HD video at frame rates of 30 (29.97), 24 (23.976) or 25.0 frames per second. Your submitted video should be a recorded interview with one or more members of your administrative team and should address what makes a library manager successful in his or her job. Special attention should be given to sharing your management philosophy, your tips to new library managers, how you ensure optimum working relationships with your staff, or any other advice you wish to share with your colleagues.

The deadline to submit your video for inclusion in the series is July 15, 2014. All submissions should be sent to
Several weeks ago, at the Library Management Institute Summer Conference, we interviewed several of the library managers in attendance and asked them about their ideas on what makes a great library manager. You can view those interviews by clicking here. This can also provide an example for your videos.
