The Middle Managers Breakfast this year will confront the issue of how innovations in library personnel structures affect the role of middle managers. Three speakers, representing traditional hierarchical and other library structures, will open the program with introductory comments. Those attending will be encouraged to choose from a short list of management models the model that interests them most and then sit at a table with others who have made the same selection. After the speakers' introductory remarks, each table will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of the structure the group has selected. At the end of the breakfast, the moderator will ask for reporters from selected tables to share the conclusions of the librarians at that table. We hope this provocative topic will inspire middle managers from every time zone to attend the 7:00 am Tuesday morning breakfast.
