The Unstaffed Library: Challenges and Opportunities Program Las Vegas Convention Center
N254
Description :

With the proliferation of self-service technologies, unstaffed libraries are becoming a reality. This solution can extend some library services with limited staffing, but creates its own set of challenges. When faced with drastic cuts at their branch libraries, The Livermore Public Library took a hybrid approach. Hear about their “Easy Access Library” that offers staffed library services one day per week, along with six days per week of unstaffed access. This presentation will include the project background, implementation process, and political aspects of creating a hybrid facility, along with the practical side and challenges of operating an unstaffed library.

1:45 – 2:05 p.m. – Presentation by Beth Avery on Collection Evaluation

While many libraries have evaluated their collections, either as a whole or for specific subject areas, few have implemented such evaluations at regular intervals. Such regular, routine evaluations could provide the support needed not only to maintain the library, but to grow it. The Collection Development department at the University of North Texas Libraries has developed a service to evaluate our collections on a regular basis. We would like to share with other librarians our flowchart of activities, the organizational structure of managing the evaluations, and the methods used in our evaluations. We would also like to initiate a discussion on the value of such services to library administrators, collection managers, subject librarians, and the faculty and students we serve.

Environments by Design: creating - and re-creating - spaces for both quiet and collaboration Program Las Vegas Convention Center
