President Drew Faust has announced the names of the first 10 individuals who will serve on the new Harvard Library Board. Composed of faculty members and administrators from across the University, the board will oversee the transition of the University’s vast library system to a coordinated management structure.“The creation of the Harvard Library Board is an integral step in positioning the Harvard Library for 21st century excellence,” Faust said. “These individuals will provide critical input into the design of the new management structure to ensure that it is closely aligned with the University’s scholarly mission.”Last week, acting on the recommendation of a working group that had spent more than a year studying the libraries, Provost Steven E. Hyman announced that the University would shift to a system that provides a harmonized approach to the global strategic, administrative, and business processes of the libraries.“At a time when scholars regularly cross disciplinary boundaries and rely on increasingly diverse media, it is critical that we develop a nimble infrastructure to respond to the changing expectations of our students and faculty,” Hyman said. “The new Harvard Library structure will allow us to greatly improve delivery of service to patrons by allowing the University to reallocate resources and ultimately invest more in collections, improve access, and enhance digital infrastructure.”The board will be composed of six permanent members and five rotating members who serve three years each, with their initial terms staggered. The permanent members will be the provost, the Carl H. Pforzheimer University Professor, and the deans or designees from the following schools: the Faculty of Arts and Sciences (FAS), Harvard Law School (HLS), Harvard Business School (HBS), and Harvard Medical School (HMS).Serving in these positions will be:Provost Steven E. Hyman (chair)Robert Darnton, Pforzheimer ProfessorLeslie Kirwan, dean of administration and finance at FASMary Lee Kennedy, executive director of Knowledge and Library Services at HBSRichard Mills, executive dean for administration at HMSJohn Palfrey, vice dean, Library and Information Resources at HLSThe rotating members will consist of three at-large, tenured faculty members, as well as deans or designees from the Harvard Kennedy School, the Harvard Graduate School of Design (GSD), Harvard Divinity School, the Harvard Graduate School of Education (HGSE), the Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH), the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS), and the Radcliffe Institute.Serving in these positions will be:Mohsen Mostafavi, dean of GSDStuart Shieber, professor of computer science at SEASNancy Cott, at-large faculty member representing the humanitiesIsaac Kohane, at-large faculty member representing the sciencesWilliam Fisher, at-large faculty member representing the social sciencesThe board is charged with reviewing the strategic plans of the Harvard Library and assessing its progress in meeting those plans, reviewing system-wide policies and standards, establishing and making changes to the funding model for the Harvard Library, reviewing and adopting budgets, and exercising oversight of the work undertaken by the Harvard Library executive director, whose appointment will be one of the board’s first orders of business.

He is author of the award-winning books Make … Web: www.armstrongspeakers.com Details This article almost didn’t make it to publication. I strongly considered asking the wonderful people at CUInsight if the piece they expected in mid-November could be pushed to a more convenient time.It’s not like you would miss me … right? There are so many excellent content contributors on this site that one late or missed post would certainly go unnoticed. My “reasons” were all solid. My clients are keeping me as busy as ever. Living and working in the COVID environment continues to take more time than expected. To top it off, my wife and I are in the final stages of a massive renovation of what will eventually be our new over budget and 3 weeks late home.Truthfully, I sometimes feel like the plate spinner on old variety television shows. I’m running from plate to plate to plate just to prevent any one of them from falling to the floor. All of this has left me feeling a little tired and ready to pull back from my day-to-day commitments and responsibilities. My guess is that the CUInsight team would have said yes to my request.That brings us to you.Are you like me? Have the seemingly unending challenges left you feeling tired on at least an occasional basis? Do you sometimes rationalize that pushing or missing the occasional commitment or leadership responsibility is to be expected considering the challenging times in which we live? Have you wondered if anyone would even notice if an obligation is missed?If the answer was “yes” to any of these questions, here’s a reminder: Leaders communicate importance with their attention. Absence is an act of leadership. What you don’t say and do sends a message that is equal in importance to the actions you take and words you say.What keeps us going?This article made it in on time. It would have been nice to spend Sunday afternoon watching sports, spending time with my family, or even taking a nap. I am at the computer instead.You would do the same. But why? What drives us to give our full attention to things when that little voice inside us is saying, “I need a break”?Motivational gurus point to passion. Passion for your work intensifies focus, provides the drive to persist when challenges arise, and enables creativity.Passion is sexy and hot. Lovers in the passion stage of a relationship are completely consumed by the object of their desire.People who are passionate about their jobs exhibit the same zeal. They are, as Peter Drucker described, “monomaniacs with a mission.”Steve Jobs said, “The only way to do great work is to love what you do.”It’s difficult to argue with that much conventional wisdom. If you are fortunate to work every day at a career or job about which you are passionate, consider yourself lucky. The not-so-obvious truth is that passion might not be enough to keep you motivated and engaged through the COVID-19 disruption. Passion can fade. Relationships with an unrealistic focus on passion are more likely to result in disillusionment. You see this at work when a formerly “passionate” employee becomes jaded and cynical because things just aren’t as they used to be in the past. The alternative is another “P” word – PRIDE.A positive sense of pride is grounded in humility. It establishes and maintains a reputation for excellence. Pride doesn’t take shortcuts, and most important, it maintains high standards when passion has diminished.Pride speaks to character, and character is an essential element of effective leaders. It is also an excellent indicator of commitment to doing the job the way it is supposed to be done.Now is the time for leaders to show their pride.My father was an auto and truck mechanic who spent much of his life as a shop manager. He always required potential new hires to bring their personal tools into the interview. His reasoning was simple: he was more interested in the pride a mechanic took in the use and care of his tools than the person’s passion for working on vehicles. Someone who uses a crescent wrench as a hammer will take short cuts that can affect quality or cause an injury. A leader who pursues what is easy rather than what is best will do the same.Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said: “If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music, or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well.”Most assume that Dr. King was talking about the importance of passion regardless of the status of your position. Perhaps, however, we missed the real message about having personal pride in your performance.Leadership—the act of influencing the actions and outcomes of others— is more important than ever. There are challenges, problems, and opportunities everywhere. All of them require leaders to be fully present and active because all of them are impossible without bringing people together to achieve something great.Passion pushes you toward success. Pride refuses to let you deliver less than your best. Your team and members need you to dig deep to show your pride in the times when your passion fades and falters.
