This group of essays examines four aspects of archival leadership: how archivists can cultivate leadership skills; how leadership strengthens institutional infrastructure and creates sustainable archival programs; how leadership contributes to accountability and improves responsiveness to technological change; and how leadership can be integrated into graduate and continuing education programs. Leadership is needed at the repository level, in the parent institution, and at the level of national professional activities and public policy.
