Management Tools and Techniques to Improve Library Services and Programs

August 21-25, 2012

Instructors: June Garcia and Sandra Nelson

  • Four and a half days of management training that you didn't learn in library school
  • Designed around PLA’s Results Series, the definitive resource for everyday library management for more than a decade

Topics that will be explored during the 2012 PLA Boot Camp include:

  • Strategic Planning
  • Data-Based Decision-Making
  • Effective Resource Allocation
  • Implementation Strategies
  • Change Management

Because participation is limited to ensure an environment that fosters group interaction and active engagement, interested librarians are required to fill out an online application to be accepted into Boot Camp. The application deadline is June 29, 2012. Applicants will be notified of their acceptance into the program within two weeks of submitting an application and can then proceed with registration.
