Description
In the past ten years with the advent of the digital age public libraries have encountered a tidal wave of change. They no longer own their traditional spheres of service - providing access to information and reading materials. The good news is public libraries understand they are facing this change and are working diligently to identify those ideas that will help them move forward into a future in which they maintain and grow their value to their communities.The bad news is that many of the ideas that are being developed, while often exciting and intriguing, are not transformational in nature. Rather, they are incremental improvements on a model that has been in place since Andrew Carnegie started building public libraries in 3. Public libraries are looking for answers primarily within their own world (other public libraries) and as a result, they are missing the opportunity to find a whole new level of creativity and ingenuity by studying organizations other than libraries.The goal of this book is to step outside the public library environment and take a careful, analytical look at businesses that are highly successful in areas of interest to public libraries (e.g. customer service). From each of these case studies key the author will define lessons about what that organization does particularly well. Finally, each lesson learned will be translated into specific suggestions as to how public libraries can adopt that information to assist in transforming how they operate
