Pat Wagner is September’s SDI

Possibly our most popular speaker for the SirsiDynix Institute. And well deserved. Sample the archive webcasts or podcasts. Sign up for Sept. 4th – the real new year’s day. Everyone can find an hour. (Even I get a hankering to buy a ream of three-holed paper and new binders.)
How to Understand your Library Users – The Better Futures of their Communities and Institutions
Presented by:Pat Wagner – Co-Owner, Pattern Research, Inc.
Tuesday, September 4, 2007, 11 a.m. – noon Eastern / 8 a.m. – 9 a.m. Pacific
Do you care about the relevance of your library to the changing worlds of the people who use it? If so, the mission of your strategic plan should not be about building a better library, but rather about your library being a tool to build better futures for the individuals, communities and institutions you serve. The sum of those better futures should be your vision. It exists outside the walls and web sites of your library, in how people live their lives. What part of achieving those better futures will your library make its new job? And how will you become an expert at understanding them, particularly if the demographics (age, socioeconomic status, education, ethnicity) of your current and potential library users are different from those who work in or oversee your library?
