Issues and Trends

The Community is the Collection (webinar)




Competency: Library Management

Sub-Topic: Community Engagement


This
one hour webinar will explore how community engagement is not a position or the
task within the library - it is the purpose of the library and influences all
parts of the organization.


Reference transform from a transaction of question
answering to ongoing instruction and learning.


Technical services are not
acquiring and organizing materials, but building a platform for community
aspirations


Lankes
will look first at a set of principles that guides a community-approach to
librarianship, and then delve into specific tools and examples of transforming
communities through transforming libraries.

    Taking the Fear Out of How-To Fests: 20 Ideas in 90 Minutes (webinar)

    Competency: Public Services

    Sub-Category: Adult
    (General) Programming

     

    How-to fests are exploding around the country. They
    introduce patrons to new ideas and create a "maker" out of all of us.

    Although,
    sometimes it can be a struggle to coordinate and host these events due to low
    funds, lack of technology needed to host robotics, or finding ways to target
    these events beyond children and families.

     

    Amy Alessio will provide you with easy,
    low-cost how-to fest ideas for adults from age 20 and beyond.
