Tech Services Managers meeting at ALA Annual 2015

The world of technical services is more complex than ever before, presenting challenges to the veteran and new librarian alike.  The ALCTS Technical Services Managers in Academic Libraries Interest Group invites you to join us Saturday, June 27th in the Moscone Convention Center room 2012 (W) from 8:30-10:00 am to discuss these challenges and brainstorm solutions.
Join your colleagues at roundtables featuring topics such as: 

  • Technical Services Managers as project managers
  • Institutional Repositories: Who, What, When, Where, …Why? 
  • The Sudden Acquisitions Librarian: What do I do now?  
  • What qualities and skills does a leader in Technical Services need today vs ten years ago? 
  • Are there resources for which it is appropriate to rely on your discovery layer rather than cataloging them?
  • What new services/products are challenging the tools and/or talent of Technical Services today?

We look forward to seeing you in San Francisco!
