This presentation addresses some best practices for library supervisors to foster autonomy and ownership in library support staff roles from the perspective of a new supervisor. It will cover activities and strategies used for a small library support staff in an academic library and the lessons learned from that experience. Often library support staff do not feel autonomous in their roles and are unaware of the impact their positions have in the organization as a whole. The presenter will explain how these steps and actions can potentially promote confidence and ownership within support staff roles and encourage more communication between support staff and management.
