Organizational Learning in the library

On an encouraging note... Also in the Jan. 2008 issue of "College & Research Libraries" there was a research article on whether libraries have cultures that encourage the librarians and staff to continue learning. Most of the libraries that they studied had problems with organizational learning. The problems they found included management which discouraged new ideas, low worker motivation, high work intensity, lack of communication, and unresponsiveness to people's ideas, among other things.

I was encouraged that our library seems to do well in this regard, as evidenced by this committee!
