You may be putting your privacy at risk simply by leaving your phone unlocked or by sharing personal information with an organization that then makes it publicly available.

Workplace Incivility and Bullying in the Library: Perception or Reality? (Massachusetts Library System)

 

In this webinar, Shin Freedman will discuss her original national research on bullying and incivility in the library, which was published in College & Research Libraries in November 2016. Her research found that more librarians than library administrators, irrespective of their academic status, institution type, and gender, witnessed bullying done to others. Experienced bullying was highest  among librarians with a nonwhite ethnic background. Conflict and aggression may begin slowly but last for a long time. Once conflict escalates, incivility and noncollegial behavior result. The longer such behavior is permitted, the more likely it is that other colleagues will be drawn into the situation. While no one would deny the detrimental impact of bullying on an individual target, what is the impact on an organization? And what steps can leadership take to prevent such situations, or respond to them when they occur?

Tackling Fake News (American Libraries)

 

In our role as gatekeepers of information, librarians have always been responsible for establishing the authority of information. But with social media ensuring that news articles—whether real or not—spread like wildfire, how can help our users filter the real from the fake? How can we maintain our professional obligation to ensure equal access to information in a politically charged time where it seems like not all information is created equal? In our next episode of American Libraries Live, you’ll have a chance to discuss these questions with our expert panel. We’ll discuss this and how we can move forward as a profession.

Building a Sponsorship Proposal That Works (Charity Village)

 

Are you sending out sponsorship packages every week and hearing nothing back? Gold, Silver, Bronze doesn’t work…but what do you use instead? Simply throwing together a bunch of facts about your cause along with a chart with predefined levels is not going to cut it in the highly competitive sponsorship space. Building a sponsorship deck is a process and it requires your organization to ask some tough questions. In this session, sponsorship expert Chris Baylis of The Sponsorship Collective will show you exactly what you need to do to build a business case that sponsors will want to read.

The Inclusive Library – Effectively Responding to a Mental Health Crisis (Part 2) (Texas State Library and Archives Commission)

 

Mental health issues impact 1 in 5 Americans each year which has a higher prevalence rate than cancer, diabetes and asthma.

What does the future of your organization look like? How will libraries, businesses, non-profits, and community organizations be impacted by technology?
