 No conferences for September

 

AT YOUR LEISURE – Pre-recorded webinars to view at your convenience

Serving The Underserved: Tips For Serving The Homeless (Colorado State Library)

Sometimes, community services in rural areas don’t have resources to meet growing needs. As such, libraries become the primary service provider for those experiencing homelessness in the community. In an already busy library, how can you assist with food, safety, hygiene, and social needs? Is it even your role to do so? What about mental health, opiate addiction, disruptive behaviors, and policies? In this session, learn practical tips to serve people experiencing homelessness, avoid burnout, encourage community conversations, and link patrons to available resources. Learn from one Library Director’s mistakes and successes, and discuss your libraries’ unique challenges together. Visit: https://www.librarieslearn.org/calendar/serving-the-underserved-tips-for-serving-the-homeless

Career Self-Care Sessions (Public Library Association)

First session: I Feel Like A Fraud: Managing Imposter Syndrome in the Workplace. How often do you catch yourself feeling like you are in ‘over your head’ at work? Imposter syndrome – the sense that you are inadequate for the task in front of you despite past proof of your ability – can wreak havoc on your career and keep you from taking on new challenges. Managing imposter syndrome requires being authentic with yourself and others, being willing to take calculated risks, and being able to ask for support from others. Second session: So You Didn’t Get the Job, Now What? In this presentation, we’ll learn about the importance of taking the time for self-care after a rejection, learn how to ask for a follow-up meeting with the hiring committee or Board, learn how to refocus and gain additional experiences that will further strengthen your resume, as well as how to work on your weaknesses. Additionally, we’ll learn tips on how to find a mentor or how to be a mentor, and how important that can be in this experience. Visit: https://www.placonference.org/vc_career.cfm

Standing Up for Intellectual Freedom Live Town Hall (Public Library Association)

As libraries continue confronting unprecedented attacks on the freedom to read, the Public Library Association (PLA) invited virtual conference attendees to participate in a virtual town hall to connect with colleagues. As those who have faced book banning attempts and related legislative efforts know, the experience is often isolating and stressful. During this free event, speakers participated in facilitated conversations that explored effective responses to the coordinated attempts at censorship currently sweeping the nation. A moderated chat followed, inviting attendees to pose questions and share insights based on personal experiences. Visit: https://www.placonference.org/vc_townhall.cfm

Claire Axelrad will share some of her favorite “tricks” to help you connect with triggers most likely to influence would-be donors to say “yes” to your fundraising offers. They’re not manipulations; just smart, research-based tools you could be using to improve messaging and calls to action.

Raising Ready Readers (Indiana State Library)

 

Have you ever heard a child say, “I don’t like reading! Reading is so boring!” How many times have you seen a child put their head down, complain, or shut down when presented with a book? To these children, reading is often seen as a chore or punishment rather than as a source of joy. What can we do when these children who dislike or struggle with reading need help? Make it FUN!

Cross-Library Learning And Knowledge Sharing—Metadata Community Of Practice At Notre Dame (OCLC)

Metadata. It permeates library work and services. It can mean different things to different people, and it may not be clear to everyone in an organization how their work is affected by metadata. It is often managed in silos, according to different traditions, schemas, and approaches, and the jargon used in the field can be a barrier to entry. However, when understood and coordinated across library units, metadata is undeniably powerful. How can library staff work together across organizational boundaries to establish common ground to maximize this valuable asset? In this webinar, the presenters will share lessons learned from developing and sustaining a cross-organizational Metadata Community of Practice (MCoP) at Hesburgh Libraries from September 2020 to February 2022.

Finding Solidarity In Storytime (University of South Carolina)

Through StoryTime Solidarity we support children’s library and education workers in teaching empathy and self-worth to kids in age-appropriate ways. This is important because so many parents and teachers default to books that center one kind of narrative and leave many feeling left out. We offer you resources that allow you to fall in love with a new generation of books by primarily living and working authors; we promote new songs that are free to use for StoryTime, and checked to avoid problematic historical associations; and offer weekly blogs sharing diverse perspectives with authors, StoryTime presenters, and more.
