I've completely rethought my approach as a result of the article, and will put my presentation together this weekend. I'll post it when finished.
On another note, a few days ago I posted my presentation for the faculty library orientation, and said I would let readers know how it went. I won't say it was a smashing success, BUT:
- The two new admin members made a point of saying they were happy to hear I believed in an active, participatory library.
- One of the faculty, while demurring about the "thrill" of listening to it, did say it was reassuring to hear I had a vision for the library.
- Best of all, three faculty members who ignored the library in the past, have come to ask for help with student projects.
Definitely well worth the time!
