4.5 | Staffing plans reflect community needs related to digital inclusion.
One of the ways libraries respond to identified community needs is to adjust staffing plans to better support them. For example, if a library's community members have generally advanced technology skills, the library may need to ensure that staff are capable of assisting with more advanced technology topics; a library may need to ensure they have staff who can communicate with non-English speaking populations in their community; or if technology services are in high demand they may need to reassign staff from lesser used departments.
