The demand by the local community for resources at the library continues to grow every year; however, the budget for technological resources may never grow to match. With changing demands, trying to satisfy the majority of users and staff becomes a difficult challenge. This panel, assembled by the LITA HoLT interest group, will discuss technologies, best practices, and experiences with hardware budgeting, open source software, cloud services, and developing partnerships that a manager can use to help maximize a budget.
