Please join us for an intriguing program on management issues in the modern law library.

HOT TOPIC Program (TS-SIS): Technical Services and the Three Rs: Reinventing, Restructuring and Renewing (TS-SIS Program)
Tuesday, July 15, 2008 — 10:455-11:45 a.m.
Every department goes through change, and Technical Services is no different. Recent news about an increasing amount of departmental restructuring in academic libraries has been piquing interest across the country. While some libraries have created more hierarchy in their management structure, others have opted for a flat organization. Their choice and changes in library practice have left many librarians wondering about the future of their jobs and how restructuring changes the role of the technical services librarian. During this hour-long discussion, our panelists will go into detail about what motivates departmental restructuring in real life situations. They will share advice about how to know when to restructure, as well as how to help staff through the transition. Panelists: Barbara Garavaglia, Assistant Director, University of Michigan Law Library; Paul Lomio, Director, Robert Crown Law Library, Stanford Law School; Edward T. Hart, Acquisitions and Serials Librarian,!
University of Florida Lawton Chiles Legal Information Center. There will be time for questions and answers.
