WORKSHOP:  "Creating the Sustainable Public Library: The Triple Bottom Line 
Friday, June 22, 12:30 to 4pm Central Time
In conjunction with the American Library Association 2018 Annual Conference in 
New Orleans.

Participants will:
• Understand the three facets of sustainability and why they are important to 
the long-term success of libraries;
• Be able to articulate the 12 steps of sustainability;
• Apply their sustainability knowledge to their own library’s situation;
• Learn to identify how to improve organizational sustainability/survivability 
for their institution

those presented in the workshop, as well as create a beginning plan for their 
• Estimate the impact of their library’s sustainability efforts going forward.

Much of Dr. Gary Shaffer's career was spent in public libraries; he is 
currently Director of the Master or Management in Library and Information 
Science at University of Southern California's Marshall School of Business.  He 
aims to make this presentation broadly applicable to multiple types of 
libraries—not just public libraries. He was a panelist at the LLAMA MidWinter 
institute in Denver, where he was described as insightful and engaging; his 
answers were broadly applicable.   His view on sustainability transcends 
environmental sustainability to address the sustained health of our 
organizations.  This includes how we tell our stories to both our constituents 
and funders, whether those be the public, students, academic administrators, or 
city government officials. 

Registration: $165 for LLAMA Members; $215 for ALA members; $95 for Students

Hi John, 

I’m writing in my role as a member of the LLAMA Career Institute Planning 
Committee. We have a wonderful Career Institute on creating the sustainable 
library planned for the upcoming ALA Annual Conference. I’m hoping you can help 
me publicize it to ASERL members. If possible, how would you recommend 
distributing the attached press release? Thanks!
