Are you finding needed changes difficult to manage in your library system? Whether the changes are technological, policy, community orientations, reorganizations, or other, we meet with resistance—both passive and active. What can help? Whether you’ve been trying to implement a web engagement strategy using multiple social media reorganized around faculty and community liaisons for service and collection development, implemented a new technology, or anything that requires staff to change methods and behaviors, you’ve experienced the struggles. Workshop leaders have been involved with encouraging and managing both large-scale and small-scale changes for decades. They share some of the strategies and techniques that work. Cultural change is hard, but this transformation that libraries and the world are experiencing makes it necessary for many libraries. Choose this workshop if you need a process and philosophy for change management.
