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.

Legally Using Video in Training (Training Magazine Network)

 

In this session, we’ll delve into and answer these questions:  How can we incorporate video into our training modules? More important, where can we get relevant videos? Producing our own may be the ideal, but, beyond the costs, what are the legal issues? How can we incorporate content created by others to produce our customized “on point” training?  Is there no-cost or low-cost footage out there?  Do we link, embed, copy? What about mash-ups?

Moving Towards Health Equity with GIS (GovLoop)

 

Many factors play into health equity: access to healthy foods, quality healthcare, jobs, community support, and social determinants of health among others. The opioid and homelessness epidemics are two issues that many communities face and often affect the same populations, further exacerbating the issues. Given the number of stakeholders and emotions involved, being able to visualize and make data-driven decisions is essential, which is where geographic information systems (GIS) comes in. Knowing where to place treatment options to be more effective can make the difference between a series of disparate tactics and leading with a solid strategy.

Introduction to Wikidata for Librarians (OCLC Research)

 

Wikidata is a free and open knowledge base that can be read and edited by both humans and machines. Wikidata acts as central storage for the structured data of its Wikimedia sister projects including Wikipedia. Beyond Wikimedia projects, Wikidata also provides support to many other sites and services, including the Google Knowledge Graph. It is also relevant to many developing and emerging projects in the library descriptive landscape. In our linked data future, Wikidata may play an important role as a place to find and store metadata and identifiers. This webinar will be of interest to metadata libraries, digital library developers, those interested in linked data and identifiers, and those tracking emerging trends in librarianship.

Making Space for Active Learning in Your Library (WebJunction)

 

Transformation happens when a library reimagines and reconfigures its physical space so that community engagement shifts from passive to active. The fifteen libraries that participated in the Small Libraries Create Smart Spaces project are dynamic proof of that. They learned and applied principles of active learning, placemaking and design thinking to create “smart spaces” where the community learns and creates together and strengthens social bonds. In this webinar, we’ll describe an innovative process that any size of library can follow to uncover community needs and translate those needs into flexible lively learning space. Hear about the real experiences of two project participants who transformed drab, underused spaces into hubs of activity and energy. It can happen at your library.

NCompass Live: Building a Future: The Big Move (Nebraska Library Commission)

 

The Timbrook Library, the busiest branch in the Campbell County Public Library System, located in Central Virginia, spent decades waiting for new construction. They operated out of a bookmobile (which eventually broke down and went up on blocks), a room in a school, and a storefront for many years before moving into a standalone building with amenities such as meetings spaces, tutor rooms, and a lunch room. The move was not without its own challenges. As we celebrate our second anniversary in the building, we’ll discuss the bumps and bruises (physical and on some egos) which occurred during the month-long move, how we handled this massive change, and how our team came through stronger than ever.

Industry and Campus Webinar: Why Security and Privacy Shouldn’t Be Enemies (EduCause)

 

The higher education sector faces a unique set of challenges that begin with the basic characteristics and behaviors of its users: students, faculty, and staff are constantly on the move, plugging into university resources from many locations and different devices without restrictions on their online traffic. This behavior makes the sensitive information they hold a “juicy” target for cyberattackers. While this scenario may warrant setting up harsh restrictions, a university is a dynamic place, fostering a free exchange of ideas, and we all want it to remain so. This session will explore how advancements in artificial intelligence (AI) and natural language processing (NLP) are making it possible to solve this huge challenge.

Assessment Made Simple (North Dakota State Library)

 

All our libraries offer programs running the gamut from story time and author talks through health care enrollment and financial planning. We generally do a solid job of recording basic statistics, like the number of programs held and their attendance. However, it’s much more challenging to measure, understand, and share the actual impact our programs and services have on our community. Usually the most we get is anecdotal evidence. In times of tightening budgets when the ongoing relevance of libraries is being questioned, outcome-based assessment can create datasets demonstrating libraries’ substantial community impact at the local, state, and national levels. In this short webinar you’ll get an overview of how to use free tools and readymade surveys from Project Outcome to tackle this tough problem in a simple straightforward fashion.
