Teamwork Makes the Dream Work: Positioning, Collaboration, and Finding Balance Across Technical and Public Services
This presentation was given at the ALCTS Creative Ideas in Technical Services Interest Group, ALA Annual Conference.
Summary: Technology, budgets, and library reorganizations have dramatically reshaped the roles of technical and public services librarians in recent years. Ways of collaborating across library units have changed as well. Together, technical and public services librarians are asking how we should position ourselves, seek collaboration, and find balance in our work. Drawing on participants' experiences, we will explore how engaging strengths and expertise across technical and public services, and partnering with students and researchers in scholarly communication practices, reframes librarian roles and contributes to well-rounded, impactful services for patrons. This discussion welcomes voices from across technical and public services.
