dc.description.abstract Four librarians from Irish university libraries completed the U.K. Future Leaders Programme (FLP) in 2010. In this article they recount their experience and assess the effect of the programme on their professional practice and the value for their institutions. The programme is explored in the context of the Irish higher education environment, which is facing significant challenges due to the demise of the Celtic Tiger economy. A brief review of the literature relating to structured programmes to prepare librarians for senior positions, is presented. The structure and content of the FLP and the learning methodologies, theories, tools and techniques used throughout are discussed. The article suggests that the programme has real value for both individuals and institutions and that it can play a significant role in succession planning and the leadership development of librarians en

dc.internal.copyrightchecked RoMEO and e-mail from editor Ann Ritchie to corresponding author, Helen Fallon 23 March 2011. Dear Helen and others I'm attaching the pdf which I've produced from my word document (pre-publication). This should be exactly the same as the one published in the ALJ Feb Special issue, just without page numbers/vol footer etc. which were of course, vol 60, no. 1 Feb 2011, pp8-20. I'm sorry for the delay, but our HQ is a bit short staffed so I decided to proceed with this approach. It's fine to deposit in your institutional repository. Regards Ann en
