·                    Presenter: Mary Minow, She says, "I was a librarian for 10 years, and then I went to law school. I know that sounds a little odd. More often, it is discontented lawyers who return to library school to find greener pastures. Odder still, and despite the efforts of so many people I meet who cannot understand my career path, I never intended to be a law librarian. I care about libraries, and attended law school with librarian-eyes. While there, I studied library law, that is the combined study of First Amendment, Copyright, Local Government Law, Disability Law, Negotiations etc. Now what I care about is sharing the most practical parts of the law that I learned, the good, the bad and the ugly, with my former colleagues, the librarians of the world."

Minow is an attorney, consultant, and a former librarian and library trustee. She edits the Stanford Copyright & Fair Use site (fairuse.stanford.edu). She teaches digital copyright at San Jose State School of Library Science and at Simmons Graduate School of Library and Information Science. She is a past President of the California Association of Library Trustees and Commissioners.

Mary received her B.A. from Brown University, her A.M.L.S. from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, and her J.D. from Stanford University.

She is the coauthor with Tomas Lipinski of The Library's Legal Answer Book (ALA Editions: 2003) (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/0838908284/qid=1043792989/sr=1-2/ref=sr_1_2/103-0313251-4161431?v=glance&s=books).
Minow is the first recipient of the California Library Association's Zoia Horn Intellectual Freedom Award, given in 2004. Minow's blog is at blog.librarylaw.com.

Tune in to learn how we can all support each other, build trust and confidence, and develop services that recapture that feeling of success for ourselves and our communities.

Health Series 2011/12
·                    Duration: 1 hour
·                    Description: A recent study on caregiving reported a startling statistic: during any given year, more than 65 million people, (nearly 30% of the U.S. population), provide care for a chronically ill, disabled or aged family member or friend and spend an average of 20 hours per week providing that care. Other findings show that these efforts take numerous tolls on caregivers, including extraordinary time demands, financial burdens, and the physical and mental health status. Impacts on employers and the workplace are significant, in terms of lost productivity, reduced time at work, and increased health care costs.

What the caregiver needs to know and do – resources for:

§     Planning
§     Decision making
§     Working with the healthcare team
§     Day-to-day tasks required to care for the loved one

Health and wellness of the caregiver:
§     Finding support groups
§     Tips for managing stress
§     Coping with feelings of anger, sadness, and grief

Tips and strategies for working with library employees who are caregivers

At the end of this one-hour webinar, participants will:

§     Understand the spectrum of caregiving topics, from daily tasks to the issues and challenges facing people who are in caregiver situations
§     Be aware of caregiver resources for specific conditions, such as Alzheimer’s disease
§     Be able to find resources regarding financial issues and housing decisions
§     Be able to provide support resources for the health and wellbeing of the caregiver

This webinar will be of interest to public library staff, including reference librarians or reference desk staff, adult and teen services librarians, and staff from organizations who provide health information to consumers and members of the public.
Presenter: Kelli Ham, she is the Consumer Health Coordinator for the National Libraries of Medicine, Pacific Southwest Region (NN/LM PSR). Kelli helps libraries and community organizations provide quality health information services to the public. Kelli develops presentations and training materials with a focus on health literacy, new technologies for delivery of health information, and services to special populations. Kelli created the Health e-Shows series of webinars in 2008 for Infopeople, and continues to cover a variety of consumer health topics for public librarians.

Whether it is guidance on setting up a consumer health library, providing training, help with collection development or health topic programming, Kelli strives to help librarians and health care professionals in their efforts to provide health information to consumers that is appropriate, accessible, and understandable. Kelli lives with her husband and three cats in Ventura County, California, taking advantage of the nearby trails for running, hiking, and biking to pursue her own healthy lifestyle.
