Library Budgets and State of the Economy

April 6–7, 2009 hosted by Lisa German and Ann Snowman

The current economic environment is none like we've seen in our lifetime. Our institution's endowments are falling and state budget support is being cut back. How are you coping with budget retrenchment in your library? Are you doing cost/benefit analyses on your service portfolio? Can you find opportunities in these difficult times? Come share your experiences and ideas with your colleagues. 620 people have already registered for the discussion forums. Perhaps we can help and learn from one another!
