I was fortunate to be given the chance to attend the TRLN (Triangle Research Libraries Network – Duke Uni, North Carolina Central Uni, North Carolina State Uni, UNC Chapel Hill) Management Academy. It was held at the Paul J Rizzo Conference Center (Chapel Hill, NC, USA) from 26 – 30 Oct 2015.

This course was very beneficial to me as it opened up new insights, ideas and knowledge on leadership and management in the field of librarianship. On top of that, it provided me with the platform to network with library professionals from North America and Canada. (I discovered that I was the only one from outside the States).
Some of the learning objectives include:
Our trainers include:
Me and some of the important people of TRLN
