Are you involved in writing, implementing, and assessing operational library policies? If so, join us on Wednesday, February 10, 1pm CT to enhance your skills with this webinar “Assessing and (Re)Writing Operational Policies.”
This webinar presents a high-level introduction to operational policies, why they need to be assessed on a regular basis, one way of assessment using the 5 W’s (who, what, where, when, and why) approach, and the basics of writing or rewriting operational policies.

By the end of the webinar, attendees will be able to:

- Know the steps and timeline for assessment and revision.
- Know the steps for writing or revising operational policies.
