  • 29. Lessons Learned
    Keeping it in house has big rewards
    Feedback is critical to sustained relevance and success
    Must include users and staff in all phases of project management, launch, training and continual evolution of service
    Have a clear vision of what you want to offer and how it will enhance what you already do and tell anyone who will listen- early and often
    Don’t underestimate the power of student workers and committed library users
    If you say you want feedback be ready to respond to it all, good, bad and weird
    Don’t start a program if you don’t have time to continue it
    Expect constant change from the beginning
