Feedback form is now closed.
Two academic library Research Services managers will discuss changes and innovations they have coordinated in their respective libraries (University of Central Florida serving 60,000+ students http://library.ucf.edu/21st/ and Florida Gulf Coast University serving 15,000+ students http://library.fgcu.edu/admin/renewal.html ) due to major building renovations that their respective libraries are currently conducting.

Significantly downsizing print reference collections, relocating service points, reconfiguring public services, re-thinking staffing patterns, adjusting Subject Liaison face-to-face activities, stepping-up online services, communicating with stakeholders, and keeping students and faculty in the loop so that their voices are heard and their needs met, are just a few of the issues to be discussed with program participants.

Attendees will be encouraged to ask questions and share ideas from their own Research Services and institutional experiences and perspectives. After participating in this program, attendees will be able to develop winning strategies for meeting the challenges of renovation planning and redesigning public services in their own institution.
