Good eReader observers that “The year 2023 is drawing to a close and there has been enough e-readers and e-notes launched to keep us engaged all year through.

Opportunity in the Face of Crisis (ALA eLearning)

Our library (Coastal Carolina University) managed multiple facilities projects and operational challenges while responding to a series of crises. The past three years have embodied change at libraries as services have been re-envisioned in response to COVID. At the height of the pandemic our university also addressed a severe budget crisis that resulted in layoffs, early retirements, and reorganization of many institutional partners. Recent administrative leadership changes further contributed to a sense of uncertainty. Now the future is bright. Crisis response, years of data collection and opportunity intersected to spur exciting change in library facilities and the reconsideration of most services. We will describe how an HVAC upgrade and plans for a neighboring auditorium were elevated into a major remodel of the existing library, the construction of a new library facility, and a radical change in services that will move our library from an afterthought to a hallmark space on campus. The importance of diverse data collection, relationship building, listening, opportunism, and general openness to rethinking facilities, collections and services will serve as centerpieces for the discussion. Presenters will also address managing change and diverse interests during the renovation process. The information provided can be scaled to fit any size academic or public library.

Learning Outcomes: 

At the end of this webinar, attendees will be able to:

  • Understand the value of data collection in order to spur change in services and evolution in spaces;
  • Describe methods for managing change during times of increased upheaval; and
  • Critically examine how a multitude of factors such as relationship building, flexibility, and pragmatism can play crucial roles in driving meaningful change. …”
