OLA: 2007 July 24

July 24, 2007 Five companies applied to be consultant to the OLA in its bid to replace retiring Executive Director, Larry Moore. President Esther Rosenfeld today informed the OLA Board of Directors that Ken Haycock and Associates have won the contract. Haycock, who is Director of the world's largest library school, is well known to OLA members as an internationally respected educator and an active advocate for Ontario libraries. His executive search services have been used by many libraries in Ontario and across the country to great effect. Haycock's firm was the only application to include knowledge and understanding of the library field as one of its strengths. As a long-time supporter of the Association, he is sensitive to the issues facing Ontario libraries and library associations in general. His firm will begin work in August.
