Building the resilient library: How (and why) to leverage change and become indispensable

A Sustainable Library Series White Paper 

 (12 October 2015) Download a white paper based on a SLA 2015 Conference Hot Topic session – the second in a series of panel discussions on the Sustainable Library.

Special librarians achieve sustainability by understanding that end user requirements and forces at work (e.g. new technologies, globalization and a mobile workforce) all demand change. Learn from Lucidea ILS and KM clients who leverage and often create change in order to ensure the sustainability of their libraries and optimize their own roles.

Topics covered include:

  • What it means to be resilient, and run a resilient library
  • Setting the scene – organizational overviews
  • Leveraging and creating change: practical examples
  • Securing organizational support – what works
  • Examples of impact
  • Characteristics of library change agents

Download a copy of the white paper from Lucidea’s SLA 2015 Hot Topics Session, Building the Resilient Library: Leverage Change and Become Indispensable, the second in the series of panel discussions on the sustainable library.

Also available is Adapt, Act and Thrive: Ensuring a Sustainable Library – the first in the series.
