  22. 22. 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
