We Have a Plan!
Emily DiGiulio, 2019 Showcase
Libraries work to acquire and ensure access to materials, provide programming and outreach, and market services and resources. Taking on these activities through project management fits well with the goals of libraries with an approach that has a definite start and end. Successful project management in libraries results in measurable benefits to stakeholders and the community requires planning. This presentation explores the role of project planning in rural library project management through a review of the literature and a discussion of project management practices that promote success.
