Your One-Stop Shop for Ideas

If you haven't visited the Library Success site before...then clear your schedule, put on a pot of coffee, and prepare to spend time learning a bunch. Here is what they are trying to accomplish with this site.

"Library Success: A Best Practices Wiki was created to be a one-stop shop for great ideas and information for all types of librarians. All over the world, librarians are developing successful programs and doing innovative things with technology that no one outside of their library knows about. There are lots of great blogs out there sharing information about the profession, but there is no one place where all of this information is collected and organized. That's what we're trying to do.If you've done something at your library that you consider a success, please write about it in the wiki or provide a link to outside coverage.

If you have materials that would be helpful to other librarians, add them to the wiki. And if you know of a librarian or a library that is doing something great, feel free to include information or links to it. Basically, if you know of anything that might be useful to other librarians (including useful websites), this is the place to put it.

I hope this wiki will be a venue where people can share ideas with one another and where librarians can learn to replicate the successes of other libraries. This wiki is not run by any commercial entity and does not represent any commercial interests."
