Making the Best of a Shrinking Budget
The archived version of last week's College of DuPage teleconference on creative practices in times of economic contraction is now available online. But only for a short time. View "Making the Best of a Shrinking Budget" online for the next month or so. After that you can borrow it on DVD from Minitex, along with all past DuPage presentations.
Join Leslie Burger, Director of the Princeton (NJ) Public Library and founder of Library Development Solutions, Alice Calabrese-Berry, Executive Director of Metropolitan (Chicago) Library System and Mary Case, Director of Libraries at the University of Illinois at Chicago for a discussion of best ways to deal with these difficult budget trends. What principles should guide librarians in saving money? How can we sustain our core services? Our panelists will share their knowledge and experience and explore creative library practices in this new economy.
