“Be a Data Champion at Your Library”

Date & Time: July 24th, 2018. Start Time: Pacific - 12 Noon, Mountain - 1 PM, Central - 2 PM, Eastern - 3 PM  

Presenters: Toby Greenwalt & Amy Koester.

Description: We all know data collecting is important, but what type of data should libraries be collecting? And how should they use the data they collect? Data is both a library tool and a community resource, and libraries can act as data champions within their service areas in order to amplify the reach and impact of library services.
This webinar will explore multiple steps along the library data pathway, from using data for internal analytics, to building institutional and community data literacy, to leveraging data for community and civic engagement. Regardless of where you and your organization are currently with regard to library data, this webinar will provide insight and resources to facilitate your next steps as a data champion.

At the end of this one-hour webinar, participants will:

* Recognize tools available to assess current data practice and to train staff, partners, and the public in data literacy.
* Understand data as a literacy that underpins many aspects of library service.
* Leverage data literacy as a tool for civic engagement.

This webinar will be of special interest to: public library staff who would like to learn to use data as both an internal tool and a community resource and to increase data literacy in their organizations

This webinar is part of the Data Informed Public Libraries (DIPL) initiative that is being sponsored by the California State Library and implemented by Infopeople. This project is supported in part by the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act.

“Laying Out the Welcome Mat: Asset Mapping to Better Serve the Immigrant Community”

Date & Time: 17 July 2018, 3:00 PM – 4:00 PM Eastern Daylight Time, North America [UTC -4]

Presenters:

* Heather MacKenzie, Manager, Diversity Services
* Amanda Fullerton, Manager, Eastern Shore & Musquodoboit Valley Library Service
* Kenneth Williment, Branch Manager, Sackville Public Library and Acting Manager, Tantallon and Hubbards

Description: As of 2016, more than 43 million immigrants were living in the US, and that number is growing. Immigration can breathe new life into the local economy as young workers replace retiring baby boomers, open new businesses, and become active consumers. Libraries can ease immigrants’ transition into the community by acting as a resource hub. Asset mapping encourages libraries to go out into their communities and uncover and assess the resources available to immigrants. The information they gather gives the insight libraries need to develop programming to serve these patrons and help them thrive. This webinar will discuss how asset mapping can facilitate community entry for immigrants by helping libraries better understand the needs of this population and address those needs through service and program development.  

This webinar is hosted in collaboration with TechSoup for Libraries.

Description: Patrons' financial interests and questions often highlight the complexity that an aging America faces as individuals transition to their golden years.

This webinar explores free resources provided by the Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection (formerly Consumer Financial Protection Bureau) that can help consumers navigate some of these complexities. You’ll also hear about programming and resources from the Kansas City Public Library that help patrons as they near their retirement years—valuable information for you and your patrons!

“Building a Culture of Learning with Library Boards”

Date & Time: 24 May 2018. 3:00 PM – 4:00 PM Eastern Daylight Time, North America [UTC -4].

Presenter: Bonnie McKewon, Consultant, State Library of Iowa, Northwest District

Description: Libraries that cultivate a culture of learning encourage their staff to participate in continuing education. But shouldn't this learning culture also extend to library boards? At the State Library of Iowa, we say yes! Trustees can and should play a key role in fostering a culture of learning at their libraries—beginning with themselves. When library boards embrace a learning culture, they become more receptive to supporting continuing education, in policy, planning, and budgeting. This webinar presents ideas for growing board learning into a blossoming culture that motivates board members to see education and training as a natural part of their trusteeship.

This webinar is hosted in collaboration with the Association for Rural and Small Libraries.

Date & Time: 29 May 2018. 3:00 PM – 4:00 PM Eastern Daylight Time, North America [UTC -4].

Description: Community partnerships have the power to meet your library’s strategic goals, expand your reach and amplify what’s great in your community. You already pursue partnerships, but you can take them to the next level, or beyond! Help your community achieve its aspirations by creating partnerships built on solid relationships, mutual respect and SMART goals. Learn from the successes, failures and lessons of real-world examples. You will forge stronger community-led libraries where goals and values are aligned, and collaboration leads to innovation.
