34 Association of Research Libraries Research Library Issues 292 2017 of which we have succeeded at. Beyond the more particular lessons of engaging stakeholders and developing and preserving internal lines of communication and reporting, the broader lesson I hope that we as a community take is that failure, even truly spectacular failure, is just that. It’s a failure, you lick your wounds, you dust yourself off, you look back at what you could have done differently, and you get back to work. Special thanks to Jennifer Robinson, associate chief librarian at Western University, for her keen insights and framing of the issues in this essay. Endnotes 1.
