Preparing for Demographic Change: Workforce and Succession Planning in the Libraries of the Australian Technology Network

The looming demographic crisis in all areas of the workforce has special considerations for academic libraries and the universities in which they operate.

The Librarians of the Australian Technology Network (LATN) are concerned about their ageing workforce, the need for staff to reflect the diversity of the student populations and finding ways to ensure all levels of staff are able to adapt to needed changes in library resources and service delivery.

To consider how LATN can best prepare their workforce and be competitive in the hiring market, LATN are working at an individual and group level to develop workforce and succession plans.
