Library and information technology leaders share increasingly common concerns about how they manage information resources and provide computing and network services to campus stakeholders. Across the industry, library and IT organizations are developing new forms of collaboration and integrated services.
Before embarking on any collaborative efforts, however, leaders in both organizations must first look at their overall institutional alignment and effectiveness.
This program will help you:
* Understand the diverse missions and cultures of the library and the IT organizations
* Consider the campus approach to library and IT services and how they impact the institution
* Assess the relative health of these critical organizations
* Gauge the impact of staffing and resource levels on organizational success
* Build a culture of ongoing change and improvement
* Decide whether and under what circumstances to consider a library-IT merger or more integrated/shared resources
