Rolling with the Punches... and Punching Back: The Millennial Librarian’s Approach to Library Budgets and Acquisitions

We work in libraries that are constantly evolving; collections are shifting formats, budgets are shrinking, and a new crop of millennial librarians are stepping up to lead through these changes. There is no single "right" way to manage a library budget or collection, but the perception of what makes a library great has changed as millennials have begun managing libraries in new and innovative ways. This session will present the budgeting and collection management approaches of several libraries (public, academic, and academic law) under the leadership of veteran library administrators through the eyes of new, millennial leaders. Attendees will then hear these millennial leaders' perspectives on how these strategies can be changed to better suit the libraries' current and future needs, including suggestions on how best to think strategically, with long-term goals in mind, and work with vendors, administration outside of the library (such as boards of directors or university administration), and library staff.
