“The Community Resiliency Model: Becoming Trauma-Informed and Resiliency-Focused and Informed”

Date & Time: July 13th, 2017 12:00 PM

Presenters:
Jennifer Burton, LMFT, CEAT, CDW-C, Trauma Resource Institute
Nick Skenderian, MSc., Program Manager, Trauma Resource Institute
Deborah Takahashi, MLIS, Pasadena Public Library  

Description: As part of the 2016-2017 California State Library (CSL) Mental Health Initiative, library staff, teens, and youth advocates are invited to learn more about the Community Resiliency Model (CRM). CRM’s goal is to help to create “trauma-informed” and “resiliency-focused” communities that share a common understanding of the impact of trauma and chronic stress on the nervous system and how resiliency can be restored or increased using this skills-based approach.

This 45-minute CRM (Community Resiliency Model) presentation will focus on learning some key concepts of neurobiology and education about stress/trauma, which are the foundation for learning CRM Skills. While the presentation will touch on these skills in relation to youth, the focus will be on using skills for self-care. Two CRM Skills will be taught to participants (if time permits, a third skill will be included). Following the presentation, there will be 15-minutes for questions and answers.
This webinar will be of interest to: library staff, educators, parents, teens, youth advocates, and mentors.

“Wikipedia for Libraries: Preview the Possibilities, Discover the Opportunities”

Date & Time: 19 July 2017. 3:00 PM – 4:00 PM Eastern Daylight Time, North America [UTC -4]

Presenters: Monika Sengul-Jones, Wikipedian-in-Residence, OCLC; Tiffany Bailey, Fine Arts Division Manager, Dallas Public Library; and Betha Gutsche, WebJunction Program Manager. 

Description: Wikipedia is more than its collection of user-contributed articles; it is a dynamic community with powerful tools that ensure reliability. For public libraries, Wikipedia can be a useful tool to connect patrons with quality information and help them build information literacy skills. In this webinar, learn how you can use Wikipedia to expand access to your collections and creatively engage your communities.

Gain an understanding of the editorial process from OCLC's Wikipedian-in-Residence and discover how guest presenter Tiffany Bailey has successfully used Wikipedia for community outreach and partnership-building at Dallas Public Library.

You'll leave with new insights about Wikipedia and practical tips on how to apply what you've learned. You’ll also hear more about the Wikipedia + Libraries online training program being held in the fall of 2017. This free ten-week course offers the opportunity to gain skills in Wikipedia editing and engagement in a collaborative learning environment with public library peers.

The Wikipedia + Libraries: Better Together project is funded by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation and the Wikimedia Foundation.


“Measures that Matter Part Three: Moving Toward More Meaningful Measures”

Date & Time: 26 July 2017. 3:00 PM – 4:00 PM Eastern Daylight Time, North America [UTC -4] 

Presenters: Chantal Stevens, Executive Director, Community Indicators Consortium; Rebecca Jones, Director, Branch & Neighborhood Services, Brampton Public Library; and Linda Hofschire, Director, Library Research Service, Colorado State Library

Description: Circulation, visits, program attendance, patron satisfaction… these are some of the many measures commonly collected by public librarians. But how well do we understand what measures tell the most meaningful stories of today’s libraries? During the first two webinars in this series, we discussed the current state of the public library data landscape – what data collection efforts exist at the national level and how they impact what we know about libraries and their patrons. In this third webinar, we will look toward the future, considering what data public librarians should collect to demonstrate their impact. To do this, we will hear from speakers both within and outside of the library field who will provide multiple perspectives on meaningful measures.

This webinar is the third in a three-part series about the Institute of Museum and Library Services’ and the Chief Officers of State Library Agencies’ Measures that Matter initiative, a field-wide discussion of the current state of public library data.

“Effective and Valuable Outreach: Aligning Activities to Goal-Driven Assessment”

Date & Time: July 19, 2017 -- 2pm Eastern (11am Pacific | 12pm Mountain | 1pm Central) 

Presenters:

Kristen Mastel is an outreach and instruction librarian at the University of Minnesota. She received her Masters of Library Science from Indiana University, and her undergraduate Bachelor of Arts from the University of Minnesota- Morris. Her research areas of interest include instruction, information literacy, outreach and instructional design. Kristen is a Past President of the Minnesota Library Association. She also is President-Elect of the United States Agricultural Information Network.

Shannon Farrell is the Natural Resources Librarian at the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities. She holds an MS in Library and Information Science from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and an MS in Environmental Studies from the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow, Scotland. She previously worked at Colorado State University as the Agricultural and Biological Sciences Librarian. Prior to earning her MLIS, she spent over ten years working on scientific research projects related to sustainable agriculture, genetically modified organisms, animal behavior, wildlife conservation, and invasive species. Her research interests span numerous areas, including outreach assessment, video games and gaming technology, and salaries and status of library workers

Description: Outreach is a facet of many of our jobs. Over time, library job descriptions have been adjusted to include outreach, whether this includes targeting departments, student populations, or the surrounding community. Libraries have attempted to connect with their users through a variety of activities and strategies. However, how do we ensure our outreach activities are impactful? Assessment has also become more important over time, since many library budgets have shrunk and we are often asked to do more with less. It is imperative that we can justify the amount of time, energy, and money required for outreach activities. Determining in advance what impact we want to make dictates what types of events we hold. Further, better assessment leads to a better understanding of the impact of our activities. Much of the library literature shares strategies for reaching out to campus communities; however, there is a lack of discussion around goal-oriented activities and if these activities reached their goals through assessment.

In this session, learn how to write SMART (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, and Time-Bound) outreach goals that are tied to your institutional mission and how to apply various assessment techniques that will evaluate if your goals are being met. Assessment techniques will address various factors, including amount of time and/or funding required, amount of staffing involved, and type of data produced (qualitative or quantitative). Attendees will also learn about the limitations of each assessment method. Participants will be asked to share their previous experience with goal-writing and assessment of outreach and will work through case studies that illustrate a particular scenario with concrete goals and ways to accurately assess the identified outreach activity. Attendees will be provided materials to bring back to their institution to apply what they learned using a previous or upcoming local outreach event.

“Measures that Matter Part Two: Detailing the Data-based Story of Public Libraries”

Presenters: Rebecca Teasdale, Senior Evaluation and Research Associate, Garibay Group; John Bertot, Associate Provost for Faculty Affairs and Professor, College of Information Studies at the University of Maryland; Linda Hofschire, Director, Library Research Service, Colorado State Library  

Description: In the United States, there are a number of national surveys of public libraries and their patrons. While all of these efforts help us tell a data-based story of public libraries, they differ in terms of their samples, what types of data they collect, and how their data are collected, stored, and accessed. During the first webinar in this three-part series, we scanned the landscape of major public library surveys and considered how library data could be used more productively in the future. In this second webinar, we will drill deeper into the concepts of sampling, data types, and data management, and how they impact what we know about public libraries and their patrons. At the end of this webinar, participants will have a greater understanding of various sampling methods, recognize the differences between inputs, outputs, and outcomes, and be aware of the data management practices for various national public library surveys.

This webinar is the second in a three-part series about the Institute of Museum and Library Services’ and the Chief Officers of State Library Agencies’ Measures that Matter initiative, a field-wide discussion of the current state of public library data.
