Techniques in Managing a Library Services Platform
Thursday, May 30, 2019, Noon – 1:30 pm Central Time,

As libraries move from legacy Integrated Library Systems (ILS) to next generation Library Services Platforms (LSP) and face evolving user needs, soft skills, such as team building, project management, and leadership skills become as essential as technology skills. This 90-minute webinar provides practical techniques for managing this change through the exploration of a case study.

  • Strategies and techniques to develop collaborative team infrastructure (mapping needs with people, product, and processes)
  • Tools to be explored / adopted to facilitate collaborative team work
  • Humanizing the library through inclusive culture
