Presenter: Tana Teicheira 

Description: Historically, active duty service members had lower rates of suicide than the general population; however, since 2005 the rates have increased dramatically, particularly among Soldiers and Marines.

- Understand Veteran’s increased risk for suicide
- Learn how to identify, address and mitigate risk for suicide

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

Date & Time: April 24th, 2017. Start Time: Pacific - 12 Noon, Mountain - 1 PM, Central - 2 PM, Eastern - 3 PM

Presenters:

- Shari Laster, Government Information Librarian & Data Services Librarian, UC Santa Barbara
- Julie Lefevre, Digital Services Librarian, Institute of Governmental Studies Library, UC Berkeley
- Lucia Orlando, Arts, Humanities, Social Sciences and Government Information Librarian, UC Santa Cruz

Description: 

- How long does a website last?
- 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.

"Whole Person Librarianship: Fostering Empathy in Challenging Times"

Date & Time: 28 March 2017. 3:00 PM – 4:00 PM Eastern Daylight Time, North America [UTC -4]

Presenters: Sara Zettervall, Founder, Whole Person Librarianship, and Adult Services Librarian, Hennepin County Library (MN); and Mary Nienow, PhD Candidate in Social Work, and beginning in August 2017, Assistant Professor, University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire (WI).

Description: Libraries are among the few public spaces that feel safe and welcoming to everyone in our current political landscape. As librarians striving to provide equitable service, we are challenged to meet the needs of patrons whose life experiences are markedly different from our own. To address these challenges, we have much to learn much from social workers, who are trained to approach their clients with empathy while maintaining professional boundaries. Whole Person Librarianship draws from social work concepts to help librarians become more confident in learning from, interacting with, and serving diverse patrons. Learn basic ideas to build your empathy skills, such as cultural humility and person-in-environment, to apply right away to your library practice, as well as where to find more in-depth information and support.

"Protecting Patron Privacy in Public Libraries"

Description: What is your library doing to provide a secure digital environment for library patrons? How is your library protecting the privacy of patrons in this digital world? Patron privacy is of critical importance to libraries, and should be a foundational principle guiding library policy and practice. It is included in the American Library Association's Code of Ethics and the Library Bill of Rights. As technology changes rapidly, libraries and librarians are working hard to keep up with digital security issues to better protect the privacy of their users. But this is not an easy task.

Come to this free webinar to learn about patron privacy issues in public libraries. This webinar will explore two key areas of patron privacy: public access technology and the collection of patron data. Our guests will share practical tips and advice on how to better protect patron privacy. We will also share recommended resources for continued learning on this topic.

"I Kanban, Can You? A Librarian's Introduction to KanbanFlow"

Date & Time: Wednesday, March 22, 2017 2:00 pm Eastern Daylight Time (New York, GMT-04:00)

Presenter: Rachel Evans is the web coordinator and digital media specialist at the University of Georgia Alexander Campbell King Law Library. 

Description: Most librarians and library staff are constantly multi-tasking. Despite the type of library, our tasks are endless and can range from cataloging to working the reference desk to IT support and everything in between. It can be very difficult to organize our to-do lists, not to mention get things done. This session will introduce the concept of Kanban (Japanese for "sign" or "billboard"), an important tool for managing workflow and measuring improvement and outcomes that was first popularized by the manufacturing industry. Today Kanban is utilized by software development teams, marketing units, human resource offices, people in strategy and leadership, and for organizing personal tasks and achieving goals.

This session will also introduce KanbanFlow, a free online project management tool that digitizes the Kanban method. This tool supports real-time collaboration between team members and weaves in the Pomodoro method of time-tracking. A live demo of KanbanFlow, its various features, and real-life examples of how it can be used in a library setting will be included to help illustrate the usefulness of this method and tool for librarians.
