This article addresses my experience in going from being a mild-mannered Associate Director of an academic law library to that of a dynamic leader of an academic law library. While I do enjoy hyperbole, I should stop right here and tell you that I'm pretty much the same person I was before I became a Director. I didn't undergo any cognitive self-transformation after I accepted the position to be the new Assistant Professor of Law and Director of the Omer Poos Law Library at Saint Louis University Law School, none that I am aware of anyway. What I did bring to the job was what all of you who are seeking to make the move one day will do and those of you who have already made the move have already done, and that is to bring your own experience, knowledge, abilities and skills to the position.
