Join us at the Nova Scotia Provincial Library on March 23rd for the
College of DuPage teleconference *Library Transformation: Making it
Happen*. In this program Richard M. Dougherty of Dougherty and
Associates welcomes a panel of noted librarians to discuss library
transformation, not as an abstraction or buzz word, but as something
real with hard, practical things necessary to make it happen. They will
spell out what needs to happen in facilities, budgets, staffing,
management and leadership to make transformation a reality.
