Value of Libraries Symposium--A Summary of the Event
Missingham, Roxanne
Australian Library Journal, v61 n3 p208-211 Aug 2012
On May 31st 2012 the ACTive ALIA Group and Australian Government Libraries Information network (AGLIN) ran a national symposium on the topic of "Value of Libraries". Approximately 80 attended this event which was designed to challenge librarians with conversations that focused on economic and other means of demonstrating our value--value from the perspective of our user community and advocacy skills. The program contained a set of ideas to stimulate thinking: (1) Have you thought about what is the value proposition for your clients? (2) In these times of financial restraint how can you position your library to deliver the services that really matter to your organisation? (3) How can you be a part of your organisation that makes a difference and communicates your value? and (4) Do you want to survive?
