"OCLC Research to Host Seeking Synchronicity Webinar "

Date & time: Tuesday, 15 November 2011 at 2 PM EST (UTC 19:00)

Duration: 1 hour

Description: Attend this webinar to learn about our research findings that will inform future development and inspire effectiveness for virtual reference services.
In this webinar, Lynn Silipigni Connaway, Ph.D., Senior Research Scientist at OCLC, and Marie L. Radford, Ph.D., Associate Professor, School of Communication & Information, Rutgers, will discuss the key findings of their multi-year study that were recently published in the report, Seeking Synchronicity: Revelations and Recommendations for Virtual Reference.
These findings indicate that today's students, scholars and citizens are not just looking to libraries for answers to specific questions—they want partners and guides in a life long information-seeking journey. By transforming virtual reference (VR) services into relationship-building opportunities, libraries can leverage the positive feelings people have for libraries in a crowded online space where the biggest players often don't have the unique experience and specific strengths that librarians offer.
Specific details that Connaway and Radford will discuss in the webinar include:
• The exaggerated death of ready reference
• The importance of query clarification in VR
• Ways to boost accuracy and build better interpersonal relationships in VR
• What can be learned from VR transcripts
• How convenience is the "hook" that draws users into VR services
• Generational differences in how people perceive reference interactions and determine success
• The need for more and better marketing

Presenters: Lynn Silipigni Connaway, Ph.D., Senior Research Scientist at OCLC, and Marie L. Radford, Ph.D., Associate Professor, School of Communication & Information, Rutgers.

Description: Are your leaders engaging in effective leadership?
A lot of people talk about employee motivation these days—but does anyone really KNOW what factors engage people and HOW to create a motivated work environment where employees:

Brag about your company as a great place to work

Invest long-term in their careers at your company

Create new and innovative ways to go above and beyond their present job duties

Inspire co-workers with a win-win spirit

In this webinar, best-selling author Scott Blanchard will share the results of five years of primary research which uncovers the motivational factors that bring out the natural motivation inherent in people, get employees up-to-speed quickly in new roles, and remove roadblocks to performance.
You’ll explore:

The leadership behaviors that build or erode Employee Work Passion

The High Road vs. The Low Road: Two approaches to managing performance

The financial implications of poor leadership

In today’s competitive work environment every organization needs to intimately understand the job, organizational, and interpersonal factors that hold people back—and what leaders can do about it.
Join Scott Blanchard for an in-depth look at how to create an environment where people WANT to come to work and give you their best. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn how to bring out the best in your people and how it can impact the performance of your organization.

"Infopeople Webinars"

Libraries and Economic Recovery: Supporting Entrepreneurs

Date & time: Wednesday, November 16, 2011
Pacific - 12 PM, Mountain - 1 PM, Central - 2 PM, Eastern - 3 PM
Description: Times are tough, unemployment is up, and libraries have responded by expanding services to people who are looking for jobs. But how about addressing the needs of people who are creating jobs? Entrepreneurs, especially the “new creatives” – designers, chefs, writers, landscapers, crafters, techies, and other imaginative problem-solvers – are expected to play a leading role in the economic recovery.

Some people know from the outset that they want to start their own businesses. Others are “accidental” entrepreneurs, looking to self-employment when a traditional job proves hard to find. Either way, prospective entrepreneurs often lack the specific skills, tools, and other resources necessary for success.

Consultants George Needham and Joan Frye Williams will describe what these job-creators need and how innovative libraries are leveraging existing assets to accommodate them. You’ll learn how you can

·                    Arrange workspaces for business creativity and collaboration,

·                    Provide opportunities for independent entrepreneurs to join forces and build community,

·                    Offer the technologies most valued by entrepreneurs,

·                    Partner with other organizations to host high-appeal programs, and

·                    Repackage reference services to appeal to this audience.

If you're an optimistic staff member or trustee who seeks to strengthen your community, help generate more tax revenue, and forge new partnerships with emerging economic movers and shakers, this webinar is for you. And if you're a pessimist who expects things to get worse, we recommend that you log in anyway, to find out what you can do to avoid becoming an accidental entrepreneur yourself!

Webinars are free of charge and registration is only done on the day of the event on the WebEx server. No passwords are required.

Presenters:  George Needham and  Joan Frye Williams

Registration: Do you require an accommodation for an Infopeople webinar? For this service, please complete and submit a request form at least 72 hours before the webinar: http://infopeople.org/webinars/closedcaptioning

Whether you are a senior leader in your organization or you have a job with some unique responsibilities at any level, you may be thinking about what it will take to replace your knowledge, skills, and wisdom. And if you’re not thinking about it, you should be! The wave of Baby Boomer retirements is beginning, and those employees who know why things work as well as the way things work will be leaving our libraries.
