4 Habits of Highly Effective Librarians

Inspired by Steven Covey’s Seven Habits of Highly Effective People, Todd Gilmann, librarian for literature in English at Yale University’s Sterling Memorial Library wrote this 4 Habits of Highly Effective Librarians. As highlighted by Covey’s seven habits, the key to being effective is having to work as part of a team.

In the 4 Habits of Effective Librarians, Gilmann emphasized on the librarian’s interpersonal relationship with his/her co-workers to achieve success and happiness in the profession that they chose to practice.

The 4 Habits of Effective Librarians by Gilmann are:

  • Openness,
  • Responsiveness,
  • Collaboration, and
  • Communication

Just to summarize, these 4 habits are nothing new. Some librarian’s practices them before when carrying out their work as professional librarians. But it won’t hurt to refresh our memories and probably our practices as well.
