Subject: [sikmleaders] Taking on Library Services - seeking guidance



In my pursuit of successful library management, I'm interested in your experiences, where applicable.

My KM responsibilities in our consumer goods company live within the insights division which also boasts of a incredible library veteran who is soon to retire. We are not hiring to fill his vacancy as I'll be taking on management of the library in addition to my current responsibilities. There is much to learn and knowledge transfer of our current library practices is progressing smoothly. If you have experience you can share, please do!

I am visiting SLA in a week, so plan to fill my mind with all things library there too. If you are going and can take a few minutes to connect in person, I'd look forward to it.

Thanks! A few of my curiosities follow below....
