As librarians move into the middle of their careers, they are more ready than ever to take on new leadership opportunities. Literature on leadership is expanding in the field of library and information sciences, and more and more seminars and workshops are being offered for new and seasoned leaders. This book asks the questions: `What about us?' and, `Where is the leadership advice and training for those who are no longer new librarians, but are also not yet seasoned leaders?' The title illustrates how to work the middle, from being in the sophomore slump progressing to the next leaders in the field, to look for perspectives from others who are in the middle of their career, and how they have developed into leaders, ways to develop one's own style of leadership and grow one's career and future as a librarian and information professional.
