Date: Wednesday, February 15, 2017
This webinar is 90 minutes in length and will begin at 11am Pacific, noon
Mountain, 1pm Central, and 2pm Eastern time.
Session 2 of the five-session series Re-envisioning Technical Services:
Identifying Leadership and Talent Management Best Practices
Over the past several years, the area of technical services has evolved and
the boundaries of technical services has become fuzzy. The scope of
technical services is changing and interconnecting with other areas of the
profession. Library technical services departments and staff now have
unique and special training needs prompted by changing standards, new
formats, and innovative technologies. In addition, technical services, like
other departments in libraries, are facing leadership and succession
planning issues. In 2015-2016, the Association of Library Collections &
Technical Services President’s Program Committee designed an online survey
that was sent out to librarians and staff in technical services (including
Libraries in ARL, Oberlin, and the University Libraries Group) that asked
28 questions regarding the major issues faced by technical services
including: What new skills are needed in technical services? How are
libraries developing staff skills? How are libraries handling training
needs? How are libraries addressing leadership (gaps and staff placed in
new leadership roles)? How are libraries identifying emerging leaders? How
are libraries dealing with succession planning?
The presentation will highlight the results of the online survey and
provide detailed information regarding new skills, training, leadership and
Who should attend?
