Canadian Association of Law Libraries Webinar on Cost Saving Measures in the Library

The Education Committee of the Canadian Association of Law Libraries (CALL) will soon be holding another session in its CALL Webinar Series.

Joan Rataic-Lang, Library Manager/Executive Director of the Toronto Lawyers Association, will speak on "Cost Saving Measures in the Library" on Tuesday November 23, 2010 from 1:00 p.m to 2:30 p.m. EST.

The registration forms and details regarding costs can be found on the CALL website in the Professional Development section:
"Cost cutting measures in libraries include difficult decisions on hard costs as well as the more elusive costs of staff time, processes and procedures. Balancing requirements with expenditures is a constant challenge for anyone responsible for a budget, much less trying to accommodate a shrinking budget. This presentation will arm the listeners with best practices and insights gained from a former law librarian who oversaw a major cost cutting project in a law firm library."

"Course Objectives
  1. Share practical experiences and best practices for cost saving in the library including expenditure on Online services.
  2. Share ideas collected from literature on the topic.
  3. Share ideas on how to work with stakeholders, change management and communication as they relate to cost savings."
