[Moderator: Connie Stovall, University of Alabama]
Title: Re-reorganization of Technical Services Departments to reflect increases in electronic content
(http://proposalspace.com/p/4516/s?key=cFjpH9S7x5Qr2S5S )
A department manager's retirement led the O'Neill Library to reexamine its organizational structure, and to analyze the ways in which it no longer fit the work that was performed. Since its last re-organization, many problems had been improved upon, a new-next-generation library system was implemented, and more content is electronic.
Title: Emphasizing E-Resources and Financial Soundness: Reorganzing the Staff Complement in Technical Services at Carleton University Library
(http://proposalspace.com/p/4517/s?key=cFjpH9S7x5Qr2S5S )
Between the years 2011-2014, two organizational reviews, a financial audit, and a published self-study were undertaken and informed the recent recalibration of technical services at Carleton University Library. This short talk will discuss how we re-emphasized the purchase and processing of e-resources and how financial efficiencies and safeguards were implemented.
Title: Take the helm and swab the decks: leading a small, academic e-resources team
(http://proposalspace.com/p/4519/s?key=cFjpH9S7x5Qr2S5S )
Managing e-resources challenges even the best librarians. But how can a small, academic library crippled by chronic understaffing provide cutting-edge service with a skeleton crew? The presenter will describe his process for 'managing up', encouraging innovation from below, and reaching across the barrier to collaborate with public services librarians.
