Academic Libraries and Toxic Leadership
Academic Libraries and Toxic Leadership examines a phenomenon that has yet to be seriously explored. While other so-called feminized professions, such as nursing, have been studied for their tendency to create toxic leadership environments, thus far academic librarianship has not.
This book focuses on how to identify a toxic leader in an academic library setting, how to address toxic leadership, and how to work toward eradicating it from the organization. In addition, it discusses which steps can be used to prevent libraries from hiring toxic leaders.
- Presents original research based on a two-phase study about toxic leadership in academic libraries
- Demonstrates how to identify toxic leadership in libraries
- Shows how toxic leadership can manifest itself, providing the reader with steps to eradicate it

"Alma C. Ortega (University of San Diego) highlights the underreported phenomenon of poor leadership in academic. ...libraries that can infect an entire organization and demoralize library staff. She is to be applauded for starting this conversation, and librarians will benefit from reading the experiences of others as a lens to identify toxicity in their own current or past libraries and to become emboldened to do more than endure it silently." --Theological Librarianship, Vol. 10, No. 1
