Abstract

"Management" and "leadership" are currently two buzz words in the Canadian LIS community. Although these topics receive scholarly attention, epistemological and theoretical basis for that work is limited. LIS needs to expand the conceptual frameworks used to study these topics by looking to the discipline of Educational Administration and Leadership.

La gestion et le leadership sont des mots à la mode au sein de la communauté canadienne des sciences de l'information. Malgré toute l'attention que leur accorde la recherche universitaire, les bases épistémologiques et théoriques pour en parler sont limitées. La communauté des sciences de l'information doit élargir le cadre conceptuel d'étude de ces sujets en se basant sur l'administration et le leadership en milieu scolaire.
