Atla PDA Series
University Libraries - Technical Services
If you can translate your skills and achievements so others see their value and impact, everyone wins.
Whether justifying the need to fill an open position, writing a tenure or promotion narrative, or even carrying on a conversation with a colleague, librarians who work in Technical Services are often challenged to articulate what they do and the value it brings to the institution they serve. In this webinar we will discuss:
- The challenge of defining value in the context of technical services
- Assessment measures that determine the impact of technical services “products” on users
- Connecting the impact of technical services to the mission of the institution
- Developing a 30-second elevator speech to explain the value of technical services to those outside the library
