- developing curriculum-wide course guides;
- prioritizing librarian-enabled service and community-building skills over collections;
- presenting the library’s value and how it can save students money on educational resources;
- developing a Web-conscious awareness for new tools and open Web resources;
- navigating the sensitivities, politics and bureaucracy of an academic environment.
