  • not particularly concerned about the expense of maintaining libraries. Funding libraries was perceived as the cost of being part of higher education. CAOs were more interested in outcomes—how much were the libraries being used? How central were they to the mission of the institution?

The Battle of the Books-Again | Peer to Peer Review - 11/19/2009 - Library Jo... - 0 views

  • It's our job to understand what people need from libraries and what they think they mean before we explain the limits we face and the choices that have to be made. We can't create the library of the future by talking exclusively to other librarians or by watching undergraduates use the library as a comfortable and inspiring place to hang out between classes. We have to understand what libraries mean to people who we may not see in the library all that often.

Raising your internal profile as an academic liaison librarian | Research Information N... - 1 views

  •  
    "In the current financial climate where every penny counts, raising our internal profile has never been more vital. There are people making decisions on what jobs are vital to the institution's goals and they are not necessarily aware of what librarians contribute, making our posts vulnerable to redundancy. It has therefore never been more essential to make non-library colleagues sit up and take notice of the excellent work we do."
