  • Allow staff time to work on the program and make it a firm commitment.
  • Break down any barriers on the tools put in place by IT departments making sure access is possible from employee computers.

  • Use the program as a way to promote the library and its services to other departments and then encourage sharing, outreach and utilization of the tools.
