Leadership has been very important at the local level in addition to the national, regional, and provincial levels. In many ways, growth in the Data Liberation Initiative (DLI) has been the result of developing local communities. This work has been very dependent on local leadership, which has relied on the instruction of library managers, computing colleagues, and librarians as well as patrons of data services. This session will explore the importance of leadership in the data services community to ensure that the issues around the preservation and access to data are championed. The future of DLI will depend upon dedicated leadership from within the community at the local, regional, and national levels.
