Managing Innovative Personalities for Successful Library Innovation

Managing Innovative Personalities for Successful Library Innovation | Library happenings | Scoop.it

I have spent the past seven years working to lead an organization into a new culture of innovation.  Saying it has, at times, been a struggle is tantamount to saying that Everest is a bit steep.  Whenever I find challenges, I always look inward as much as at the environment to find any potential challenges to success or meeting my goals.  As a result, I have spent much of those seven years learning to hone my management and leadership style into one that creates, or if not ‘creates’ then at least ‘allows for’ or ‘encourages’ an environment where Innovation will flourish.  I have come to understand that the primary component in this effort is the cultivating and managing of innovative people.

How Charlotte Mecklenburg Library convinced 13,000 people to come back - Charlotte Agenda

How Charlotte Mecklenburg Library convinced 13,000 people to come back - Charlotte Agenda | Library happenings | Scoop.it
You’re used to Harris Teeter knowing you better than you know yourself because of the VIC card on your key ring. Charlotte Mecklenburg Library is now proving that even civic groups with much smaller budgets can harness data analytics to improve.

The library is in the middle of a project to track cardholder behavior and use that information to place programs in the right locations, better advertise services and give people gentle nudges to influence behavior. The end goal is to get more people either in the doors or using the library’s online services. The ultimate goal is to more effectively tackle community issues like third-grade literacy and the digital divide.

Closing the Gap in Librarian, Faculty Views of Academic Libraries | Research

Closing the Gap in Librarian, Faculty Views of Academic Libraries | Research | Library happenings | Scoop.it

"In this age of outcomes measurement, many academic librarians are focused—and rightly so—on making sure they best serve students. Yet students are not the only population of end users on an academic campus. Faculty, too, are conduits not only to students but to library users in their own right. As well, studies of faculty attitudes such as Ithaka’s often show that, even as faculty increasingly depend on library-brokered online access to expensive databases and electronic journals, the off-site availability of modern resources may leave many faculty members less aware of the crucial role of the library in their and their students’ workflow."

Role of Liaison Librarians: “If librarians are to thrive as indispensable players, it will be necessary for them to be visible participants in the life of their Universities….Creative partnerships forged with all facets of the University community: faculty, IT departments, students, will allow the library to function as a key player at the heart of the life of the academy.” –Gromatzky, S.E.

Work Like a Patron Day @ Brock University Library | Open Shelf | Library happenings | Scoop.it
“ Logging into our computers seems to take forever. First, finding somewhere to sit, then settling in with your winter coat, bag, laptop and coffee takes ages! Never mind waiting in line for the elevator. It’s not that our services are slow or under-par, it’s just that we library staff don’t typically see the big picture. Once you factor in all the steps it takes to go from entering the library to working productively, you quickly realize that the library isn’t always as convenient as we like to think it is. It also explains why students sometimes leave their belongings while they use the washroom or grab a drink. If they didn’t, they’d have to start all over again!”

Libraries exist to provide amazing services and resources to our users. We are so committed to this vision that we continue to offer these services even after users don't need them. “The easiest way to know that a product should be killed or sold off is when it no longer fits the company’s distinctive competence and market strategy. Regardless of the costs, a product that doesn’t make sense in the context of the rest of your products just confuses your customers.”

Access to media files which are free of copyright restrictions. Despite it being common practice, cutting and pasting images from the internet or downloading audio and video files is often an infringement of copyright. A great source for teaching students about the importance of copyright and intellectual and creative integrity.
