A new wave of library professionals are looking for ways to stay involved in supporting library success. In addition, even as the economy recovers, libraries are relying on independent librarians to provide one-time, temporary, and part-time support to libraries, particularly small, rural, and financially strapped institutions. Finally, the dramatic changes libraries are experiencing mean library leaders and managers are going outside their existing staff to seek people with experience in a variety of skills, including change management, instructional design, user experience, technology planning, and collection management. This half day workshop is ideal for any level of librarianship, especially those considering or in the midst of a career change.
