On Leadership

MBM Peak Series

Rolf Janke

We are excited to officially announce and launch the MBM Peak Series, career-enhancing titles created for the library community. Going beyond the prescriptive how-to, each of our titles collects creative, smart voices offering authentic enrichment for all librarians.

The Peak Series came about organically from our starting point as a library publisher with a focus on leadership, matched with a passion for creating quality content. These elements naturally led the way to building professional development content for leaders within the library market.

Our goal is to make these titles something a little different than the usual fare. The Peak Series brings a fresh, approachable and honest voice that honors and celebrates the librarian profession. We set out to champion the leaders, innovators and those brave enough to navigate a new path.

It's fitting that our inaugural title, Crucible Moments: Inspiring Library Leadership (January 1, 2016) is edited by Steven Bell, Associate University Librarian for Research and Instructional Services, Temple University. As many can attest, Steven is the epitome of a modern library leader.

Steven has collected stories and insights from some of the best library leaders in the field to encourage and empower those wanting to lead and those seeking to be a better follower within the library. 

With a roster of great Peak Series titles slated for 2016, along with new reference offerings, we’re thrilled to expand our world over here at MBM. We hope you join us on this journey of creating great leadership content.
