The North American Serials Interest Group (NASIG) is an independent organization that promotes communication, understanding, and sharing of ideas among all members of the serials information community.
During the past 12 months, the University of Victoria Libraries said good bye (due to retirement) to both of our serials catalogers. Due to impending budget cuts, we were not able to advertize either one of these vacant positions. This session will address the approaches taken and the strategies implemented in coping with the loss of these two highly experienced and highly trained staff members. By applying the skills and abilities in the "Supervising and management" core competency, we are implementing changes that will, in the long term, allow us to continue to provide high quality service to users.
