eConsulting Library Solutions

Your library needs to keep up with constant change. How do you make that happen?

You have likely identified areas where you want to make changes, and where you need help doing so. Perhaps you’re looking to upgrade your website or enhance your tech offerings, or maybe you’re looking for customer service training for your staff. With budgets and staff stretched thin, it can be tough to keep up.

Whatever your need, eConsulting Library Solutions can help.  Experienced consultants in marketing, web development and design, user experience, customer service, and more, are ready to work with you.

Hiring an in-person consultant is often cost-prohibitive, but consulting services don’t have to break the bank. eConsulting Library Solutions provides the benefits of in-person consulting—access to a subject expert; structured, real-time interaction; and solutions-oriented action steps—without all the expenses. You’ll meet with your consultant virtually using WebEx, where you’ll work together to build solutions through a variety of tools, including live video feeds, screen sharing, whiteboards, collaborative document creation, and real-time interactive software demos.  Whether you’re looking for just a little constructive and practical advice or a major overhaul of your space or services, the eConsulting experts can help you get there.  

Contact us to describe your project and we’ll connect you with a consultant (or consultants) who can work with you to address your library’s needs within your budget. In a free 20-minute intake session, you’ll meet with the consultant to discuss your project, timeline, expectations, and next steps.
