Looking past your nose: Being future ready

Recently I went to Auckland to see my son off to Korea to take up a post-graduate scholarship. It did not work out as planned when our car was written off on the Southern Motorway. Luckily no one was hurt, although it was a close call. The problem was a mattress in the fast line of the motorway. Drivers were not looking far enough ahead to see the danger and when they did see it they were not reacting appropriately. So how does this belong in a column for librarians? I think we are sometimes so focussed on the road directly in front of us, that we cannot see what is further up the road.

Great customer service requires committed library staff

“The customer comes first” is a common adage that espouses the principle of providing a product or service that the customer values, of being customer-focussed. The customer must come first, because they ultimately determine how long you stay in business - they pay the bills, including your wages.

Blog! The tools are free. Blog internally and externally. Promote your stuff to your users. Promote the library to the staff. Bring out your staff's hidden creativity. It's time well spent.

Use Facebook to reach the next generation of Library users as well as the wide age spread of users currently using it. Good way to engage and audience.
