Making the Case to Special Libraries

 I think that the whole library ecosystem is positively impacted when libraries succeed at the ballot box.  As a librarian in a corporate, research, medical, or legal setting you know that the people who work with you, need your research or bibliographic skills, and ongoing project support may/should/do use the library in their own communities.  The more positive presence the library has in their off-time the more likely they are to look to you as a colleague and team member.  And vice versa.

I am sure many members of ORLSA understand what it’s like to be a solo librarian, and the importance of reaching out to allies in other libraries. We reach out for professional development opportunities; ask for recommendations for products, systems & services; and we depend on each other for basic camaraderie.  In short, we stick together.

Thanks to ORSLA for posting this piece as information-only.
