At every level of your organization, the last year-plus has been, without exception challenging for everyone. Over this summer, we in libraries have begun to make plans to return to “before times” tentatively, but can we go back to the way things were, or should we be looking forward to a very different future from our recent but distinctly solid past.
The opportunity to rebuild or restructure in this new environment is daunting; thoughtful, intentional action needs to be at the forefront of this work. In this presentation, we will look at different areas of the library, including services, teams, and leadership, where long-term change could benefit the organization.
The changes instigated through recent quick actions and decisions made during the pandemic offer the opportunity to explore what we should continue to do or do differently, and what new organizational needs have surfaced that require our attention in what will eventually become a post-covid workplace.
