This seminar will guide you through the process of taking an inventory of your current library policies, evaluating their usefulness to your daily operations and revising or renewing them to serve your current library needs. The emphasis will be on starting where you are and working in a methodical way to ensure your library has effective policies that support your mission and protect the library staff, board, and patrons. We'll cover the basic policies every library should have, understanding the implications of your current policies, techniques for revising policy to provide best service to your community, and tips for creating new policy that works for your library. The seminar is suitable for library administrators and board members, as well as anyone interested in effective library operations.
