Leaning Your Library's Materials Handling Workflows Program Las Vegas Convention Center
N231/233
Description :

Applying Lean concepts and tools to library materials handling workflows is a low cost, highly collaborative, and staff-empowering approach to improving how we get items from our shelves, from another library, or from our book jobbers and into the hands of our patrons as quickly and efficiently as possible. Lean involves training every person in the workflow to take responsibility for continuously improving and optimizing their environment. Lean tools can be utilized to make one time changes, but are most effective when the principles are adopted by the organization and incorporated into the culture. This program will provide an introduction to Lean principles and explain how these principles apply to library materials handling. The presenter will provide tools that will be put to immediate use through group projects. Plus, participants will leave with plenty of resources for transitioning their circulation and materials handling staff into a Lean team.
