Thing 16 - Advocacy
This isn't an area I have been involved in as yet at a general level. I have been involved in presenting proposals in order to prevent services from being dropped or to justify funding for future services in two of the libraries I have worked at. Gathering facts and figures and ensuring these are presented in a professional manner is of key importance. The benefits of working in a team when one's back is against the wall cannot be understated. Each team member can work to their strengths and it is unusual that everyone in the team feels down at the same time. This means that team members are able to spur each other along when the going gets tough.
