Demonstrating Value to Shareholders

Libraries are essential – but are your shareholders getting the message? Recession and shrinking budgets are reducing access to library services now, when they’re need most. Are you successfully demonstrating your value to your community? your faculty? your parent organization? It’s more important than ever. Whether you work in a public, private or academic library, our distinguished panelists have insights to share. This special program is a joint effort of the Central Ohio Chapters of the Special Libraries Association and the American Society for Information Science & Technology. Join us on Tuesday August 3rd, when Chris Taylor of Columbus Metropolitan Library, Scottie Cochrane of Dennison University, Kem Lang of Battelle Memorial Institute and Larry Olszewski of OCLC discuss.

1 Comment on Demonstrating Value to Shareholders

  1. An extremely good balance of institutions represented and given that, an amazing unity among the panelists on some central themes. There were especially good comments from several panelists on strategies for marketing and public relations – the essence of demonstrating your library’s value to the people who benefit from it. Every librarian understands how timely this topic is, and there ensued a very lively discussion among attendees from all around Ohio. Not to be missed!
