In other words, I was suggesting "For library leaders" (instead of
"leadership") for consistency with the other section headings, and Antoine was
preferring "leadership" -- for the reason, however, that to him, this term
seemed more inclusive of people who exercise leadership at levels lower than
library director and department head.
