About the session:
Asian Americans are severely underrepresented in leadership positions in American academic libraries. Many factors have attributed to this phenomenon, including racism, language barrier, and lack of collective power. Instead of discussing these factors, this presentation examines some of the major leadership attributes that have helped Asian American academic librarians attained leadership positions in U.S. academic libraries.
