    • Where we are going
    • 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
