Out with the Old in with the New? Finding the Balance When Starting Library Services

No library has unlimited resources so when priorities shift, staff need to determine what they can stop doing and who they should target when starting something new. In this panel discussion, a library department will discuss how they balanced existing roles with competing demands to spin up new projects quickly.

Joyce Garczynski – Assistant University Librarian for Communication & Digital Scholarship; Towson University
