Academic librarians participation in shared governance: Effects of faculty leaders' motivational type.


Description

This study asks the question: Does the motivational type of faculty leaders, including Chief Academic Officers (CAOs), affect the participation of academic librarians in shared governance in higher education. The literature reveals that librarians' participation in shared governance is minimal and may continue to be so for a variety of reasons including, but not limited to, obstacles from faculty and administration, self-exclusion, and academic credentials.
