PLL Change as Opportunity Webinar: Staffing the Library for Success (AALL/PLL)

Axelroth reviewed staffing models and how they help us meet the new service expectations of management, users and clients. Then, two practicing librarians described the techniques used by their organizations to respond to today’s staffing challenges. Jeanne Trimbel, Information Services Team Lead at the MITRE Corporation, talked about the team program in place at MITRE and Genie Tyburski, Manager of Research & Information Services at Ballard Spahr, discussed the use of outside companies to expand service capabilities.
