                                              With dwindling budgets to pay for consultants and a growing interest in collaboration
                                              across the organization, libraries are increasingly taking a do-it-yourself approach to
                                              strategic planning.
                                              This book takes a step-by-step approach to grassroots strategic planning for libraries of all
                                              types. The authors, who led a successful strategic planning process at their own library,
                                              provide practical advice and detailed information to guide library personnel through their

                                              As educational curricula and research evolve to include advanced technologies, libraries
                                              must offer programming with these emerging technologies in mind, including the use of
                                              virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR). Valk, Mi, and Schick present readers with
