Ark Conference Session : Developing the Library Business Plan

1 Comment

j0385553.jpgI will be speaking at the Ark Conference, Best Practices & Management Strategies for Legal Library & Information Services on February 26th in New York, along with Jean O’Grady (DLA Piper), Linda Will (Dorsey & Whitney), Silvia Coulter (Hildebrandt), Kit Hartnett (Proskauer Rose), Gayle Lynn-Nelson (LexisNexis), and Joseph Meringolo (Dickstein Shapiro) with Joel Alleyne (Borden Ladner Gervais) as the moderator.

 My contribution to the day will be “Developing the Library Business Plan” described below.

What services do you offer? Who are your clients and how can you impact the bottom line? Developing a library business plan is limited only by your business acumen and creative skills.  The goal is to be able to demonstrate to your leadership that your plans are based on the firm’s business goals and that you have skills that go beyond what they think of as a traditional librarian.

I’m looking forward to spending the day with the other speakers and attendees. 

See the Business Plan category on this blog for articles on the topic.

  1. Your approach seems very interesting and I’ve never thought of extending a librarian’s skills this way. I’ll definitely check out the pages you recommended. look forward to your future posts.
