PLA Preconference:
Mental Model Busting

Friday, June 22
8:30 AM–12:00 PM
Anaheim Convention Center, Rm. 303D

“The library is all about books.” “Libraries can’t charge for services.” "The customers don’t want to learn.” “We must have databases!” When we have a mental model of something, it shapes our behavior and limits our creativity in finding solutions. With all the changes in the library world, innovative, out of the box thinking is required. Come do some mental model busting and experience how shifting your thinking can open a new world of possibilities for you and your library.

Presenters: Cheryl Gould, consultant, Petulama, Calif.; Gail Griffith, consultant, Glen Bernie, Md.

Event Code: PLA2
