Engagement, Innovation and Value: Principles for Sustaining Today’s Academic Library

Description: Academic librarians face a multitude of challenges in responding to economic, technological, and accountability demands. At times we may feel tossed from crisis to crisis without a strong foundation for decision making. Engagement, Innovation, and Value are three principles that can serve as touchstones in today’s environment as we embrace the possibilities and potentialities that exist when responding to evolving information technologies, growing user needs, and challenging financial situations.

Doing the Work to Demonstrate the Value: An Opportunity to Build Community
Description: Conference attendees are invited to bring current assessment projects in which they are working on demonstrating the library's impact. If not a project, an idea for a project or even a wish for data will work too! We'll share our "works in progress" and have opportunities to receive feedback. The session will be structured in small groups and use a "clearing circle" approach that is loosely adapted from Parker Palmer's Courage to Teach book.
