I6: Manage Your Role in the Institutional Project and Communicate Your Library's Value to the Institution: Seven Principles for Success
Date and Time
Tuesday, July 16th, 2013, 3:45 P.M. - 4:45 P.M.
- Participants will be able to apply two principles for creating a substantive strategic plan before the project begins that defines what the library needs to accomplish to apply its expertise and fulfill its designated role.
- Participants will be able to apply two principles for identifying work efficiency concerns and making workflow adjustments before the project begins that address how to carry out the strategic plan.
- Participants will be able to apply three principles for responding effectively to any issues arising with outside contractors/vendors during the project.
When a library lends its expertise to an institutional project, effective management of its role often presents a greater challenge than when managing library projects. The LaValley Law Library managed the audiovisual (AV) portion of the McQuade Auditorium renovation while simultaneously maintaining a full AV event support schedule for the University of Toledo College of Law.
Explore seven principles for demonstrating your expertise and successfully completing a large-scale project in your own institution. These principles will be applied through a combination of lecture, demonstration, and voluntary audience exercise to strategic plans, workflow/efficiency issues, and responses to contractors/vendors. Most importantly, this program will illustrate how your library can communicate its value at the institutional level.
Librarians who are interested in or participating in library or institutional projects. Librarians who are interested in communicating value to a larger institution, including value derived from less traditional tasks.
