SCL’s latest research into digital leadership skills was funded by Arts Council England and undertaken by Shared Intelligence between April and July 2014. The aim was to identify significant digital developments relevant to library leadership and then identify digital leadership skills and competencies library leaders need, to operate in this changing landscape. Digital developments were identified through desk research, and a survey of all SCL members in England, Wales and NI, to which 110 SCL members responded with detailed comments. A skills audit was carried out receiving responses from 75 SCL members and 128 individuals whom SCL members’ had identified as potential future leaders. The findings were tested in webinars and face-to-face discussions throughout the course of the study.
