How can libraries enhance and reposition their “technical services” operations to drive ongoing library transformation? Scholarly communications, data curation, digital humanities, cooperative preservation, library publishing, collaborative collection management: these new functions require a talented staff with significant technical services expertise, regardless of their titles and reporting structure. This five-part webinar series is based on the successful 2016 Midwinter Symposium held in Boston. Presenters will explore how libraries can recruit and cultivate staff who can serve as both leaders and contributors and provide insight into talent management, including identifying and nurturing leaders; succession planning; promoting diversity; and connecting staff with the best training options throughout their careers.

After attending this series, attendees will have:
 A broad, porous and dynamic view of technical services and its centrality to the success and evolution of libraries;
 An understanding of the components of talent management and exploration of leadership development, succession planning, and continuing education and training for all levels of staff; and
Explored practical and blue-sky methods to implement or enhance these aspects of talent management in any type or size library.

Who should attend? Library and technical services managers and others interested in the future of technical services
