Abstract

From trial to implementation, technical services staff play an important role in shaping awareness of, and expectations for, new resources. Internally, technical services staff provide information and instruction to public services staff. Externally, they influence how new resources are integrated into the library website and other platforms. With appropriate “message control,” technical services staff can positively influence awareness of new resources while keeping everyone’s expectations in check.
