Failures, Flops, and F*ck-ups: What We Did and What We Learned

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

At most conferences, presented programs are about success and pats on the back for job well done. We want to look at the other side of reality: the flops. Every library has had amazing programs as well as the occasional failure. We want to share our mistakes with others, what we learned from them, and how we moved on. Our goal is to help others learn the easy way, rather than the very public way we learned.
