Learning Objectives

Libraries’ digital resources can benefit from a work-from-anywhere approach. Libraries, however, often fail to consider telecommuting as a tool for employee recruitment and retention. In this session, we will discuss telecommuting’s benefits to your organization and explore issues such as stakeholders’ responsibilities, technical infrastructure and tools, and success strategies.
