Abstract: This paper covers two interrelated topics, namely, the preparation of Canadian library leaders (through the Library Leaders Institute - LLI) and the motivations of librarians who attend leadership programs. Through discussion of these topics, this paper addresses the theme 'Librarians of Tomorrow'.
The LLI was established in Canada in 2006 and the paper outlines the reasons for its establishment and provides background information about the content and structure of the institute. The question of what motivates library employees to attend leadership programs, such as the institute is also discussed. This discussion includes some preliminary research findings which speak to the topic of professional education and continuous career development.
