In this online event, we ask information architect Abby Covert to share some strategies and tactics that could help us to pay closer attention to language choices we make.

Starting Immigration Services at Your Library (Public Library Association)

Are you interested in learning how to incorporate immigration services into the library? PLA and the ALA Office for Diversity, Literacy, and Outreach Services have invited the Immigration Advocates Network (IAN) to share valuable information about their free online tools—immi and Citizenshipworks—which can be used to expand the capacity of your citizenship corner and provide people with self-guided immigration legal assistance. IAN will also discuss the ways libraries are currently using immi and Citizenshipworks in its branches. In addition, two public librarians engaged in working with the immigrant population in their communities will give examples of citizenship workshops and other programs at their libraries aimed towards immigrant patrons.

Measures that Matter Part Three: Moving Toward More Meaningful Measures (COSLA/IMLS)

Circulation, visits, program attendance, patron satisfaction…these are some of the many measures commonly collected by public librarians. But how well do we understand what measures tell the most meaningful stories of today’s libraries? During the first two webinars in this series, we discussed the current state of the public library data landscape – what data collection efforts exist at the national level and how they impact what we know about libraries and their patrons. In this third webinar, we will look toward the future, considering what data public librarians should collect to demonstrate their impact. To do this, we will hear from speakers both within and outside of the library field who will provide multiple perspectives on meaningful measures.

Care of Books and Scrapbooks (Connecting to Collections Care)

How many smaller institutions have scrapbooks and old books that have been entrusted to their care and that are just shoved in the back of a dark closet because they are problem objects? Books and scrapbooks are similar objects in many ways, but each requires different types of care. In this webinar we will explore these differences and techniques to extend the lives of these deceptively simple objects. We will look at the types of albums and books, handling these objects, housings, shelving, and more. Armed with a sound foundation, you will be able to create a preservation plan for two very common categories of materials.

Libraries and Compassion Fatigue (Massachusetts Library System)

“You work in a library?

We’ll discuss the effects our work has on us, and what to do about it. Elissa Hardy, the Community Resource Specialist at Denver  Public Library, is one of only a handful of on-site library social workers. She is an expert on the effects of trauma and stress on individuals, and has trained librarians around the country to help them better support their communities and themselves.

Let the Wild Rumpus Start! Child-lead play in public library programming (University of Wisconsin SLIS)

Have you ever wondered if there’s a better way to spend your summer programming hours than hiring magicians and jugglers?  Do you struggle with ways to incorporate truly authentic play (the kind YOU engaged in as a kid, not the kind directed by adults) into your library offerings?  Not sure how much guidance to provide in open-exploration sessions for toddlers? Are you looking for more ways to encourage literacy skills and parent education?  This webinar will introduce you to a radical new library program idea being pioneered in Madison, Wisconsin, based on a groundbreaking new educational philosophy called Anji Play. Learn how Carissa has adapted this approach, originally developed for schools, into a library-friendly format that both kids and parents love.

Nonprofit 911: The Key to Inspiring & Engaging Your Mid-Level Donors (Network for Good)

We pay lip service to mid-level donors. We know they exist, but we have virtually ignored them for 10+ years. The truth is that they are a unique donor pool within our programs. They have different needs and different giving behaviors, and they aren’t inspired by or engaged in our work. It’s time to change that! In this free webinar, you’ll discover how a dedicated mid-level fundraising program will help you ultimately raise more.

Masters of the GovDoc Universe: Public Libraries as Local eGovernment Service Providers? (Federal Depository Library Program)

In the United States, public libraries facilitate the use of eGovernment services by providing reference support and Internet access to patrons. Public libraries are also trusted, value-driven organizations committed to the dissemination of knowledge and the promotion of civic ideals. Although public libraries are suited to build and maintain online collections of local government records, the libraries’ role in local eGovernment often remains limited. This presentation summarizes library and eGovernment research and looks at the vital role that public libraries can play in building and maintaining digital collections of city and county records.

Promoting the 2017 Eclipse Across America: State Library Agencies Can Help Promote the 2017 Solar Eclipse (Chief Officers of State Library Agencies)

On Monday August 21, for the first time in almost 100 years a solar eclipse will sweep across the landscape of the US from Oregon to South Carolina. On that day, effects of the eclipse, from total coverage of the sun to partial coverage, touch every state and our communities are going to be interested in what is happening up in the sky. State Library Agencies (SLAs) can play a central role in engaging their public libraries around this significant astronomical occurrence helping to prepare and enliven interest in this impactful event. Whether a library chooses to be involved on the day of the event and/or offers eclipse-programming leading up to the event, librarians as respected leaders in the community can offer guidance and resources.
