These advocacy tools include data, messaging, supporter cultivation, fundraising, using volunteers, and a wide range of tactics like Facebook, outreach, email and direct mail, paid and earned media, and much more.

The Relationship 360: Using People Skills and the Leadership Mindset for Success (Effectiveness Institute)

 

The Behavior Styles model developed by Effectiveness Institute uses the metaphor of an iceberg to identify critical differences between behavior and personality. The entire iceberg represents our personality and the part above the waterline represents our behavior—which is a choice. What stops most people from making successful long-term change to their behavior is their mindset. To learn more about mindset and how it can be an accelerator of individual and team performance, George Myers, President of Effectiveness Institute, has invited a former institute partner and now go-to expert on mindset training, Hugh Blane, to join him in an interactive and high-impact webinar, “The Relationship 360: Using People Skills and the Leadership Mindset for Success.”

Designing for Human Behavior: a Free LLAMA Webinar (Library Leadership & Management Association)

 

This free webinar will provide a basic understanding of the natural human behaviors and instincts that drive our everyday lives, such as the desire to be in a secure environment and the need to have vision of your surroundings. You will learn how you can design your library space to promote comfort and security within the details – everything from the pitch of the seat and the ability to maintain your personal bubble, to the sightlines promoting comfort for our human instincts that trigger our internal fight or flight. Furniture that works well in library spaces has proven time and time again to put our instinctual fears at ease and allow us to spend those hours tucked away in the comfy chair reading a novel or at a computer completing a task. Now, it’s time to understand why this happens and how to better design our libraries with these things in mind.

Seven Contemplative Discipline Steps to Address Challenging Behaviors – Part 1 (AbleNet)

Problem behaviors exhibited by students interfere with their learning, interactions with peers and adults, and school success. Educators and schools struggling with how best to handle behaviorally challenged students often respond reactively. They frequently pursue a punishment-based approach using time-out or in and out of-school suspensions even for minor infractions. These punitive consequences do not really work because the challenging behaviors continue. Part 1 will provide step-by step guidance on how to apply the seven contemplative discipline steps, including how to understand student behavior through data collection, and use the Antecedent, Behavior, Consequence (ABC) method.

Whether you’re just now discovering the power of donor surveys, or you’re looking to up your game, this session is for you!

This one-hour session introduces you to concepts that enable you to begin to “integrate conflict” – to walk into it and effectively handle it – rather than avoid it.

Data Management Education Needs: Identifying Signposts for Graduate Student Researchers : A MidContinental Region Webinar (National Network of Libraries of Medicine)

 

Effectively managing research data is a skillset that graduate students need to acquire along their pathway to becoming competent researchers. Librarians can help guide learning by establishing instructional signposts for relevant data management concepts, including data sharing practices. To be effective, librarian guides need to be familiar with the knowledge and skill gaps of the novice researchers. Surveys were conducted at two medium-sized universities to assess perceived importance and knowledge of 12 research data management competencies, with a goal of informing education planning. Graduate students provided insight into sources of learning about research data management. Study results set the foundation for identifying approaches to research data management education.

Trustee Trouble 8: Advocacy (Wyoming State Library) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zYYlR2cYKC8 : Library Board membership is a great way to give back to the community and the library. Sometimes that first year on the board is tough, there is a lot more to being a library board member than you might think. In this series of episodes, laugh and learn along with Dan, a new library trustee, as he muddles through his first year on the library board. We suggest viewing one episode per month and then as a group, discuss the episode and answer the questions asked at the end of the segment.

 

The Power of Small: How Rural Libraries Help Their Communities Thrive (WebJunction) https://www.webjunction.org/events/webjunction/power-of-small.html : All libraries provide vital services to their communities, but libraries that serve small, rural populations have the potential to go beyond providing information and access—they can inject the vitality that will help their communities thrive. Addressing the challenges faced by rural areas may seem daunting to a library with few staff and limited resources, but any tiny library can find more ways to support the needs of their community by thinking strategically and creating new connections with their stakeholders, patrons, and other library staff.

 

Fundamentals of Library Advocacy (EveryLibrary) https://bit.ly/30Na5oC : The goal of this webinar is to introduce the tools we need to develop in order to identify, cultivate, and empower your local activists to take action for libraries. We’ll show you what you need to do in your community in order to start to use those tools to build the real political power that you need in order to engage and influence community leaders.

 

Intergenerational Programs at the Library: Connecting Generations for Healthy Communities (WebJunction) https://bit.ly/2HhwtwA : Walk into almost any public library and you’ll see people of all ages engaging in the community space. When libraries offer programs and services that intentionally spark connection between generations, they contribute to more vibrant and cohesive communities. Learn how your library can develop inviting opportunities to encourage more intergenerational connections on a day-to-day basis. This webinar will discuss why intergenerational relationships are important and will help you develop skills to foster intergenerational communication in your library. We’ll explore ideas and resources that will turn your library into a community intergenerational catalyst.

Understanding Soft Risk in Volunteer Engagement (VolunteerMatch)

 

We all worry about the hard risks that can have an impact on our volunteers and the work they do, but too often we don’t think about the soft risk. Soft risks are the attitudes, beliefs and actions that expose our organizations to risks. Those risks may include the actions of staff – both paid and volunteer, interactions on social media, lack of training for leaders and volunteers – leading to risky behavior, and how failing to screen for characteristics or “fit” can open volunteers and the organization up to risk. This webinar is designed to help attendees identify soft risks in their organization and give them the tools to make changes to processes and culture to minimize and address these risks.

The Real Secret to Employee Engagement (Harvard Business Review)

 

Employees crave feedback. Your organization’s culture is the key to its success. Strategic planning is essential. Your competencies should be measured and your weaknesses shored up. Leadership is a thing. These may sound like basic truths of our work lives today. But actually, they’re lies. As strengths guru and bestselling author Marcus Buckingham and Cisco Leadership and Team Intelligence head Ashley Goodall show in their book, Nine Lies About Work, there are some lies and faulty assumptions that we encounter every time we show up for work. Nine lies, to be exact. They cause dysfunction and frustration, ultimately resulting in workplaces that are a pale shadow of what they could be.

Libraries and the 2020 Census (Indiana State Library)

 

Civic engagement matters! As librarians, our role in the 2020 Census is amplified this time around. In March of 2020, U.S. residents will not only receive traditional paper forms from the Census Bureau, but they will also have the option of online response. Patrons can fill out the census using their home computers, their smartphones, or by stopping by the local library and using a public computer. How can we properly prepare our library communities for this new option? Librarians can learn and review the basic facts about the census; we can provide informed outreach to our library communities; and we can know where to go for assistance outside of our libraries. Tune in to this webinar to find out more!

Leveraging e-Content for Libraries and Patrons (iSchool @ UW-Madison)

 

Libraries have long recognized the potential of e-content to be so much more than just an alternative to print.

And, while copyright’s end and fair use’s beginning is still hotly debated, the developing options for delivering, finding, and accessing e-content are both promising and growing. Join iSchool alumni Andi Coffin and Sara Gold from WiLS for a discussion on the ways we are seeing e-content mature, including through community engagement initiatives provided by the Wisconsin Public Library Consortium and the challenges and successes trending in the world of e-content publishing.

This one-hour session introduces you to concepts that enable you to begin to “integrate conflict” – to walk into it and effectively handle it – rather than avoid it.

Improving Internet Access In US Libraries: the ‘Toward Gigabit Libraries’ Project (Nebraska Library Commission)

 

While much worthy attention has been paid to improving “last mile” connectivity for rural and tribal libraries, it’s the last 100 meters (the network inside the building) that is often overlooked and in need of improvement. The IMLS-funded Toward Gigabit Libraries project aims to address that problem through a self-service toolkit suitable for even the most novice of library workers. In straightforward, easy-to-understand language, the toolkit is designed to take lay people through technical concepts and tasks to create a Broadband Improvement Plan for each library. The plan is designed to help the library where it’s needed most – including improvements to hardware, software and configuration, suggestions for training and education, resources to advocate for better connectivity, and more.

Digital Collection Development (Ed Web)

 

Purchasing digital educational content is tricky business. The big trade publishers can change licensing agreements in ways that impact schools because K-12 is not their priority market. Textbook publishing, which seemed simple and profitable in the print format is far more complex for eTexts. The term “eBook” calls to mind an alphabet soup of delivery formats (EPUB, MOBI, AZW, IBA, PDF, and more). Purchasing as we have traditionally known it is replaced by a wide array of “leasing” models where a dropped contract can result in collection depletion. Managing a digital collection requires attention to detail. The screen reading vs. print reading debate rages on.

Strategic Planning in a Deeply Weird World: The Flexible Roadmap Field Guide Approach (WebJunction)

 

It’s a big task to define the library’s future over the next three or five years, and strategic planning is becoming less and less effective in a rapidly changing world. The Salt Lake City Public Library (SLCPL) has created a new approach that is flexible, staff-driven, and human-centered. SCLPL’s Strategic Roadmap is not a 100-page plan in a binder-on-a-shelf; it’s an experiential learning tool that invites all staff to participate in the co-creation of meaningful outcomes and experiences for the community. The Roadmap focuses less on planning and more on building capacity of staff to adopt a human-centered service design mindset and skillset. SLCPL staff are adopting a new perspective, continually experimenting with and adapting spaces, collections, services, programs, and their own roles, to responsively address community needs and aspirations in an ever-changing landscape. Join us for this webinar to learn how to cultivate new skills to help bring the Roadmap to life for your library’s strategic planning.
