Description: Are you looking for new picture books to offer at your story times?

This webinar will focus on new picture books that will engage the story time audience, including books that invite audience participation, books the promote the five parent practices (talking, singing, writing, playing, and reading), books based on songs and nursery rhymes, books that promote pre literacy skills and kindergarten readiness, and websites useful to story time planning.

“Making Training Stick: An Interactive Webinar for Supervisors”

Date & Time: October 24th, 2017. 10:00 AM

Presenters: Andrew Sanderbeck, Terry McQuown, Brenda Hough

Description: Organizations invest a lot of time and money each year training their employees, but are they truly getting the best return on their investment? As a supervisor, one of your key responsibilities is to develop your staff, including identifying the need and sending them to training programs.

In this interactive and informative webinar, Terry, Andrew and Brenda will introduce supervisors to “transfer of training” in order to help them understand various tools and strategies to support their staff in using more of their learning on the job. They’ll also explain the critical differences that supervisors make in the success and/or failure of employee training in any organization. 
     
At the end of this program, participants will be able to: 

* Describe the role supervisor’s play in helping staff transfer learning from training to the job

* Identify practical tools and strategies that they can start using immediately to help their staff transfer learning from training to the job

* Overcome possible barriers to using transfer of training

Carterette Series Webinar (Georgia Library Association and the Georgia Public Library Service)

“More Than an Editing Party: Why and How You Should Organize a Wikipedia Edit-a-Thon”

Date & Time: October 18, 2017. 2pm Eastern (11am Pacific | 12pm Mountain | 1pm Central)

Presenters:

- Emily Jack is the Community Engagement Librarian at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She manages the library’s social media presence and coordinates efforts, including Wikipedia edit-a-thons, that engage the UNC community in research and learning activities outside of the curriculum.

- Kristan Shawgo is a Social Sciences Librarian at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, serving as the library liaison for the departments and centers of Public Policy, Women’s & Gender Studies, Sociology, Sexuality Studies, the Carolina Women’s Center, and the LGBTQ Center.
Therese Triumph is a Science Liaison Librarian for the Kenan Science Library at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and began her career in science as an engineer working in the renewable energy field. She has held three “Women in Science” wiki edit-a-thons with the “Women in Science and Engineering” graduate group.

- Alice Whiteside is the Head of the Sloane Art Library at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She has participated in Art + Feminism since its launch in 2014, helping to organize Wikipedia edit-a-thons at Mount Holyoke College, the Rhode Island School of Design, and most recently UNC-Chapel Hill.

Description: Wikipedia, the global volunteer-edited reference source, has grown from a scrappy upstart to being regarded (sometimes reluctantly) as a mainstay of our information landscape. But while Wikipedia now has more than five million articles in English, it still contains gaps in coverage that stem from the demographics of its editors. Since 2013, a group of librarians at the University of North Carolina has coordinated and hosted nearly twenty Wikipedia edit-a-thons with the goal of eliminating those gaps. At these events, participants have developed articles on women in art, science, and math; regional African American and Native American history; and local practitioners of traditional arts.

The librarians at UNC are not operating in a vacuum, but are part of a worldwide community of GLAM (gallery, library, archives, and museum) professionals bringing their unique expertise to the Wiki movement. In this session, four of them will discuss their experiences and the broader role of librarians in the Wiki world. The presenters will focus especially on the edit-a-thon program at UNC-Chapel Hill, discussing event outcomes, addressing the benefits and challenges of hosting an edit-a-thon, and sharing tips, advice, and step-by-step resources for librarians considering their own involvement in Wikipedia.

Description: Over two million people in the US are estimated to be dependent on prescription opioids or heroin. A sharp rise in drug overdoses has made it the leading cause of death among Americans under 50. This epidemic is happening in all regions of the country, in communities of all sizes, without discrimination for age, ethnicity, or income. As library staff see this crisis impacting their own communities, their urgent question arises: How do we respond?

Join us for a virtual town hall, where representatives from libraries and other community organizations will describe their local efforts and who they’re collaborating with. We also want to hear from you: We’ll ask audience participants to describe the informational, structural, financial and emotional support that library staff and community members need to withstand and address this alarming epidemic. The insights gleaned from this town hall will be shared to inform plans for future efforts.

This event is jointly organized by WebJunction and Public Library Association.

Your patrons can strengthen these skill sets while also having fun in a social setting — through playing tabletop games at the library. Learn about the wide array of games available and the specific skill sets each one promotes.
