Self-service can be the best thing since sliced bread – or it can alienate your patrons and make them feel unappreciated.

If your library offers self-service of any kind (check-out, computers, copiers, drive-through windows, book/DVD vending machines, etc.), it’s easy to forget that not everyone who comes through the door is ready, willing, or able to serve themselves.

This session will help us take a step back and make sure we’re still serving our customers, even when they have a self-service option!
