As Team Leader, you will receive three copies of 300-400 titles to be recorded, categorized, and distributed to reviewers. You are responsible for maintaining records, collating rating sheets, reporting tabulations to ILA Headquarters, and writing annotations. Do you have sufficient clerical assistance to direct this project?
Your participation as a Team Leader involves a three-year commitment.
