Financial Strategic Planning for Libraries
Do you hate that time of year when you’re asked to put in your budgets for your information services? Do you absolutely hate trying to second-guess what the Rand is going to do against a basket of foreign currencies, or what nasty surprises the Minister of Finance/Receiver of Revenue have tucked up their expensively tailored sleeves with regard to VAT or other tax implications for your services? Do you wish that courses on Basic Bookkeeping 101/Excel 101/Financial Planning for Non-Financial Managers had been included in your LIS subjects for compulsory attendance? Do you absolutely loathe and detest your vendors and the publishers when they won’t reveal how their annual subscription price increases can be justified? Is there NO ONE your institution that understands Library Finance? Are you a lonely little librarian in your weedy petunia patch of onion-like finance bulbs? Do you still count on your fingers?
If you’ve answered yes to at least one of these questions, then you absolutely have to come and hear what Dave Crawford has to say! Dave Crawford is Chief Financial Planner of Crawford Employee Financial Guidance and oversees financial education. He has been involved in this work since 1992 and Writes regularly for the Sunday Times answering reader queries in the Rands and Sense column. He also hosted a financial program on Radio Today for four years.
