ADVICE & CONSULTING
Our consultants have the professional education and experience to bring to the table a breadth of knowledge of current library practices, and an understanding of the framework in which libraries operate. SOLS consultants work at empowering library leaders to become strategic and political in their analysis of situations and to make decisions that are in the best interest of the library and the community.
Policies ensure library services are fair, consistent, and help the library fulfill its mission to the public. SOLS provides advice to public libraries on policy development and regularly updates sample policies
SOLS currently has no capacity to assist libraries with planning beyond guidance and advice. There is a professional resource on Strategic Planning that includes helpful information.
