WebJunction Webinars

"Beyond the Welcome Sign: Tailoring Immigrant Services for Success"

Date & Time: 11 May 2017. 3:00 PM – 4:00 PM Eastern Daylight Time, North America [UTC -4]

Presenter: Will Chan, Director of Economic Mobility for North Denver Cornerstone Collaborative and the National Western Center, City and County of Denver, and 2016 Mover & Shaker; Jamie Torres, Deputy Director of Human Rights and Community Partnerships and the Director of Immigrant and Refugee Affairs, City and County of Denver; and Sophie Maier, Immigrant Services Librarian, Louisville Free Public Library, and 2017 Mover & Shaker.  

Description: There is much more to supporting immigrants and refugees than hanging out a "welcome" sign at your library. Successful programs and services are specifically tailored to meet the needs of the range of populations who may come through your doors. Hear from Movers & Shakers who work with communities to empower vulnerable and often underserved populations with a sense of belonging and self-reliance. Learn innovative approaches to identifying and celebrating immigrant leaders; how to foster networking between native-born and newcomer populations and between immigrant groups of varying national origins; how to highlight immigrant-positive narratives; and more. You'll be sure to find practical ideas among the multi-pronged strategies that these librarians have used to ensure that new immigrants really do feel welcomed by the library and the community.

This webinar is part of a series highlighting the work of recent LJ Movers & Shakers and is hosted in collaboration with Library Journal.


"Measures that Matter: A View into the Current Public Library Data Landscape"

Date & Time: 23 May 2017. 3:00 PM – 4:00 PM Eastern Daylight Time, North America [UTC -4]

Presenters: Stacey Aldrich, State Librarian, Hawaii State Public Library System; Vailey Oehlke, Director of Libraries, Multnomah County Library (OR); Linda Hofschire, Director, Library Research Service, Colorado State Library.  

Description: Data gathering and responding to surveys are part of every public librarian's routine. Yet we rarely pause to reflect on these efforts and consider what data matters most. What measures best demonstrate the role, value, and impact of public libraries in the 21st century? How can the various surveys and tools commonly used by public libraries be leveraged with each other and other data sources to best demonstrate that impact? The Institute of Museum and Library Services in cooperation with the Chief Officers of State Library Agencies is launching the "Measures that Matter" initiative, a field-wide discussion of the current state of public library data. The initiative will first take stock of the current landscape and then re-envision how data could be collected, stored, used and disseminated more productively in the future. In this webinar, the first in a 3-part series, we’ll discuss the view that emerged from looking at a number of major library surveys and data collection tools, and consider opportunities to pursue a national action plan to move the field toward ever-more meaningful measures.

"Capturing our State: The California State Government Web Archive"

- Do you know where information on California's state government website is curated and stewarded for long-term access?
- Who does this work and why?
- Do you want to learn how to make sure that current and future library users can access important information about their government?

If any of these questions sound interesting, then this webinar is for you!
A group of librarians at the University of California, Stanford University, and the California State Archives and State Library are working to ensure that valuable evidence of our state's history are collected and preserved. California state government publications have nearly ceased being distributed in print; instead, they are now almost exclusively born-digital and available only on agency websites. Current research indicates that over 40% of the information presented on state government websites is inaccessible within seven years. California is no different when it comes to this statistic. Important California state (and local!) government information is at great risk of irretrievable loss.

Launched in 2008, the Archive of the California State Government domain, CA.gov, is a public collection of freely available web archived agency sites . This webinar will introduce participants to tools and process involved with creating and maintaining a web archive. We will discuss the history of the CA.gov archive as well the current LSTA-funded development work being done by a multi-institutional team.

In this webinar, participants will:

- Understand the basics of web archiving using Archive-It
- Be familiar with the scope and content of the CA.gov Web Archive
- Be able to search the CA.gov Web Archive and the Open WayBack Machine for state government information
- Know who to contact with questions about the project or suggest sites for inclusion in the archive
- Have ideas for web harvesting projects for your local government agencies

This webinar will be helpful to library staff who want to learn how to access web archives and develop ideas for instituting web archiving projects at their libraries.


Webinars are free of charge, you can pre-register by clicking on the Register Now button (at the top and bottom of this page). If registering with less than 30 MINUTES from the start of the webinar you can join directly from the thank you page by clicking the Join Now button. If you pre-registered you will receive an email with login link and a reminder email the day before the event.
