Scottsdale Public has 4 branches holding about 700,000 items and does
about 2M circs annually serving a population about 350,000. We have an
IT staff of 4:
Library Technology Supervisor (me, salaried, MLIS): unit head, budget
master, defaco webmaster, III new product implementation/sys admin (7
new products purchased just this year), projects galore (new website
goes live Monday), Liaison to City IT
Network Administrator (salaried): runs about 16 servers and umpteen
routers, makes everything work together
Technology Coordinator (hourly): III system administrator for daily
duties and troubleshooting, reporting, intranet manager, trainer (public
and staff), 3M self-check guru
Technology Specialist (hourly): desktop support for 250 library work
stations (staff and public), including imaging, primary contact for PC
reservation system, some support for the 100+ City staff workstations
that are managed by City IT.
We have taken to outsourcing. Our public printing is through
Envisionware (down to the money collection and copier service) and our
wireless access is through Ethostream (they have an 800 number for
patrons to call - it's great!)
But being that we are opening a free standing building this year that
doubles the square footage of the existing shared use library and our
5th library is in the design phase set to open in 2009, I'm really
keeping my fingers crossed for the two positions I've requested in the
next budget cycle.

We are a medium sized public library. As the pressure rises to deliver
manage) more and more services electronically, I am curious as to how
many people your institutions are able to dedicate to website and
catalog development. If you read between the lines, you can tell it is
budget negotiation time.
Thanks for any information,
