The one-person library presents many unique challenges for the librariain. Â Lacking big budgets, staff, and often time, the solo librarian must be both the strongest advocate for their library and the face of the library, while running all the behind-the-scenes operations. Â The Library Leadership & Management Association (LLAMA) presents â€œGoing Solo: Managing the One Person Libraryâ€ on Wednesday, August 7, from 1:30 to 3:00 p.m. Central time.*
This webinar will address time management issues and help solo librarians prioritize tasks to avoid feeling overwhelmed. The webinar will also address strategies for advocating for your library and managing/effecting change where you might not have direct control, finding resources, help, and mentors.
Presenter Patti McCall is Reference & Instruction Librarian, at the University of Central Florida, Orlando.
Participants will learn:
â€¢ Ways to advocate for your library through outreach and marketing
â€¢ Proven time management techniques
â€¢ How to manage upward/effecting change in areas where you do not have direct control
