Lessons Learned • Choose partners and projects conscientiously. • Make sure you are aware of the size and scope of the project. • Over plan. You will not regret it. • Form a committee, librarians love committees. • If you have volunteers/docents: • Be clear on your and the exhibit group’s expectations, messages and behavioral guidelines. Train them. • Guide them. Praise them. Reward them.
