Library management during times of economic economic duress.

Call for input:

As a topic for one of my last MLIS classes, I’m writing about the title of this post. If anyone reading this has a strategy for dealing with budget cuts, reductions in hours, hiring freezes, layoffs, etc, please share them!

I’d love to have some quotes from actual library managers who have dealt with/are dealing with economic hardship in the library…I’ll check the comment section for anybody with ideas to share.

P.S. Successful strategies are certainly more constructive, but just as valuable are failed strategies…there’s no use in ignoring the lessons learned by others, right? So ideas to avoid would also be welcome.
