Grace Simons, Electronic Resources and Cataloging Librarian, and Cathy Mayer, Visiting Instruction Librarian, share a belief that academic libraries can practice hospitality for staff members (librarians and paraprofessionals) by reimagining workflows through expanded use of digital platforms. Simons and Mayer shared their experience utilizing Microsoft Teams at North Park University’s Brandel Library and invited attendees to reflect on how ideas shared might be applied at other Atla institutions. Content shared is intended to provide a high-level introduction to Microsoft Teams and explores three themes: needs that drove adoption at Brandel Library, a tour of the platform highlighting key functions, and ideas for organizational strategies that can be adapted by others.
