ALA Annual 2019

ALCTS Preconference Focuses on Managing Change in Libraries


Join the Association for Library Collections and Technical Services (ALCTS) on Friday, June 21 at 8 am for the all-day preconference Change Management in Libraries and Technical Services. Whether you’re an administrator, middle manager, leader of change or involved in change at the ground level, this preconference offers something for you! We will explore change management as a foundational concept for individuals, organizations and institutions, as well as the particulars of instituting change within libraries and their technical services departments.


After learning about the foundations of change management, subsequent presentations will discuss examples and case studies specific to libraries and technical services. Some of these examples relate to approaching ILS migrations like a “Get Out The Vote” campaign, shared leadership and change management concepts applicable to reorganizing technical services and reallocating collections budgets.


For more information on this preconference, including the full list of speakers, the schedule or how to register, visit the ALCTS Annual Conference page. For a full listing of all ALCTS events at Annual, visit the ALCTS Programs at Annual 2019 page.


Please note that you can register for just this preconference even if you aren’t attending Annual.
