Title: Allerton Park as Metaphor
Author(s): Sullivan, Peggy
Subject(s): Library personnel management
Abstract: Allerton Park Institutes are part of a long tradition, but the one in 1987 has been presented in a somewhat different way from earlier ones. There were options on programs to attend, opportunities for considerable interaction, a spirit of informality, and time to share problems and learn from the problems of other participants. The setting of Allerton Park is a metaphor for the activity. It has allowed for freedom and diversity, humor and sociability, isolation and thought. It is a good place for a group to gather, to get a better grip on its pride and purpose. It is important for those of us who are administrators and leaders in librarianship to do this periodically, and we have benefited from this experience.
