WebJunction Webinar

"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"

Date & Time: 16 March 2017 - 11:00am 

Presenters:
 Bill Budington, from the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), will talk about digital security issues that impact patron privacy in public libraries, and will share tools and information from EFF that can be useful for libraries.
Chuck McAndrew, IT Librarian at the Lebanon Public Libraries (NH), will share actions he has taken at this small library to better protect patron privacy and to teach library users (how to better protect their own privacy).  

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.
