Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: Collaboration involves a fusion of individual talents and skills through outreach and cooperation. And it is one of the key ingredients of a vibrant, successful library that is also relevant to the community it serves.  But it doesn't just happen magically, and it's a challenge to kindle those original sparks of inspiration into a sustainable effort. Written by a team of librarians and community partners who themselves learned how to collaborate successfully, this uplifting book takes a fresh look at the essentials of how to nurture the best within ourselves and our colleagues in order to create lasting partnerships that will continue to thrive. Its breezy tone encourages reflection and discovery while giving practical suggestions on how to plan for short-term gains and long-term results. Questions and points to ponder included at the end of each chapter will facilitate discussion and planning. Helping you harness creative thinking and channel it into everyday work, this book

  • discusses why collaboration is so important and provides numerous tips for cultivating it;
  • examines what to do when things go wrong, including techniques for generating patience and perseverance to help produce positive results;
  • offers new ways to plan and implement, featuring guidance on how to establish a core group;
  • explores ways to prioritize by starting with clear goals;
  • describes the fundamentals of engaging with fellow staff and the wider community; and
  • highlights ideas to spark curiosity that benefit everyone.

An array of appendices with worksheets, examples, suggested readings, and other tools complete this celebration of collaboration, a book that will inspire effective communication and accountability within your organization and among community allies.
