J4: What Makes a Librarian Worth a Million Bucks? Valuing Staff, Resources, and Services When Dollars Are Scarce

Sign up or log in to save this event to your list and see who's attending!


This session will be webcast from Boston on AALL2go (member login required).

Target Audience: Library managers from all types of libraries involved with the budgeting process

Learning Outcomes:
1) Participants will be able to design and conduct a numbers-based evaluation of library staff, online and print resources, and services when considering budget cuts.
2) Participants will be able to analyze the value of staff, resources, and services, and then demonstrate how that value affects the institutional budget – thus, proving the true worth of librarians.

Librarians are frequently faced with budget cuts and stymied when needing more staff and resources to provide adequate services. Libraries are often targeted for reduction because management believes everything is online, and librarians fail to document needs with hard numbers. This program will show you how to compute the value of library staff, how to compare the cost and use of online research services, how to determine which services can be eliminated, and how to create more value for the law library. The speakers will demonstrate how to obtain the numbers needed to improve long-range planning and financial management, and will discuss how to use these measurements to proactively influence decision-makers.
