APL director Scott Jarzombek on library decision making

If no one is mad at your decision you may not have made one at all from his Times Union blog

Buildings and facilities are one of the hardest parts of my job. And it’s a role that a library degree fails miserably at preparing you.

I am fairly lucky to have a great head of facilities to guide us through the process, and crew to do the work. Thankfully they all make my job a little easier. However, a good chunk of my work as director is done before any building or upgrade project is even announced…

It is fairly easy to think changes happen over night. What many people don’t see is the time and energy it takes to just come to the decision.
