How to design a library that makes kids want to read (TED Talk) https://bit.ly/2rCaYRM : When Michael Bierut was tapped to design a logo for public school libraries, he had no idea that he was embarking on a years-long passion project. In this often hilarious talk, he recalls his obsessive quest to bring energy, learning, art and graphics into these magical spaces where school librarians can inspire new generations of readers and thinkers.

The critical role librarians play in the opioid crisis (TED Talk) https://bit.ly/2sLR3ij : Public libraries have always been about more than just books — and their mission of community support has taken on new urgency during the current opioid epidemic. After witnessing overdoses at her library in Philadelphia, Chera Kowalski learned how to administer naloxone, a drug that reverses the effects of narcotics, and she’s put it to use to save patrons’ lives. In this personal talk, she shares the day-to-day reality of life on the frontline of the opioid crisis and advocates for each of us to find new ways to keep our communities safe and healthy.

Onboard or Overboard! Increasing Employee Retention and Productivity (Training Magazine Network)

 

Employees are going overboard, leaving companies at a faster pace than ever before. You work so hard to recruit the right talent and yet 1/3 of employees quit their jobs in just the first six months! One major factor in this is lack of great onboarding.  Companies fail to realize the need to reinforce the “buying decision” – yes, onboarding is a key time for new associates to determine if they made the right choice or not.

Graphs, Charts, and Data Visualization – All Three in Your Next PowerPoint Presentation (Training Magazine Network)

Data visualization takes things further, to convey complex concepts in an elegant and relatable way. In this webinar we explain how to use and create PowerPoint graphs and charts effectively. We show the common mistakes people make and how to avoid them. Then teach you how to create live and non-live graphs, charts, and other data visualizations that will help engage your audience and get your message across.

Controlled Digital Lending by Libraries (District Dispatch)

 

Controlled digital lending (CDL) is the term for any library project that digitizes print materials and makes them available in a manner consistent with traditional lending principles. CDL requires the use of digital rights management to ensure a consistent owned-to-loaned ratio, so that a library cannot circulate more than the number of copies it owns, and only authorized users have access to these digitized works. Libraries perceive copyright as a roadblock to this vision, and this session seeks to demonstrate why copyright can be a library’s ally instead.

What is Our Money Story? And How Do We Tell It? (Bloomerang)

 

This training will show you how to reduce “talking about money” discomfort and show you how to powerfully include your money story in your fundraising communication. It’s much easier to talk about your amazing work. But that is only one component of successful fundraising communication. Letting your supporters know the costs of keeping water clean, mentoring children, changing laws, or helping veterans is equally important. Sharing costs alone is dry and uninspiring but when your money story is combined with a story about one person –  people listen. And often, they give more and stay giving longer.

F3: Fine-Free Future (RIPL)

 

Libraries continue to strive toward more equitable access even as many of our communities face growing income inequality—and the question of library fines has become particularly relevant. This webinar brings together three experienced library directors who have recently eliminated some or all overdue fines at their libraries to discuss the strategies they used in their communities, the arguments for and against the elimination of fines, their plans to measure impact and success, and how they communicate the issue of overdue fines as critical to any library’s mission of equal access and social equity. As part of this discussion, they will share examples of how they used data to inform their fine-elimination process.
