Many attending the Computers in Libraries pre-conference session Web Managers Academy 3.0: Seamless Websites & Expanded Presence confessed to being a "one person shop." The financial crisis of the last several years has resulted in staff cuts and resource downsizing. What hasn't diminished are expectations.
Darlene Fichter, a librarian at the University of Saskatchewan, said, "The number one most important thing you can do if you're a solo shop is to manage your own expectations and the expectations of others." She and the other three presenters offered these suggestions.
