    Assessment
  • Discussion
    Let’s assume the collections budget in your institution will be reduced by 20% next fiscal year (budget reduction + projected inflation).
  • Discussion
    Assuming there will not always be a consensus on the approaches to adopt, how do you address resistance to change?
    How would you and your library plan for such a reduction in terms of communication within and outside the library?
    What strategies would you propose?
    What role does your institution’s strategic plan play in such a process?
