AALL Program: Redesigning Work Roles in Response to Changing Collection Environments

Hello TS-SISers,

For those of you who will still be around AALL on Tuesday afternoon, I would like to invite you to the TS-SIS sponsored program, "Redefining Work Roles in Response to Changing Collection Environments" on Tuesday, July 28 from 2:30-3:15, in WCC-156.

As libraries have adjusted to their changing collection environments by taking on new roles within their institutions, by purchasing fewer resources or changing formats of resources purchased, managers have seen an increased need to reallocate some staff from tasks that are less in demand to others now in greater demand. Ajaye Bloomstone and I will be talking about our respective experiences in the past year at Louisiana State and Northwestern, respectively. However, we also plan to leave ample time for discussion, and encourage you to come and share your ideas and experiences from your own institutions.

Thank you, and hope to see you there.
