These include picture books, easy readers, transitional fiction, genre fiction for middle grades, graphic novels, poetry, nonfiction, and more!

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


·        Be able to identify “read-alikes” – other books you can recommend to children after you find out their favorite book

·        Discover books that will grab the attention of reluctant readers, including the newest graphic novels for kids, nonfiction including “gross” topics, and popular culture titles

"Top Tech Trends in Materials Handling"


Date & Time: Tuesday, February 14, 2012
Start Time: Pacific - 12 PM, Mountain - 1 PM, Central - 2 PM, Eastern - 3 PM


Description:

·        Does your heart sink every time you walk into the back room and see rows of full book carts waiting to get checked in or shelved?

·        Ever wish there was a small, affordable sorter that would work for your library?

·        Are you under the mistaken assumption that you need RFID to use automated materials handling systems?

·        Are the lines at the circ desk getting longer and longer as more people rely on the library for their books, magazines and DVDs?

·        Ever considered putting in vending machine in your community but weren’t sure how they work or what they cost?


With the economy in such bad shape, more people are turning to the library for services and material. To deliver services, libraries need staff. To circulate material, libraries need staff … or do they?

There are affordable technologies on the market today that can reduce the number of library staff that need to be involved in basic materials handling functions. Some technologies help staff be more efficient. Other technologies take the workflow out of the staff’s hands entirely.

 From self-check in and self-check out machines to vending machines and sorters, there’s a solution out there for libraries of every size and for every budget. Self-check in machines with small sorters can get your library staff out of the back room and out onto the floor where they can deliver services to patrons. Vending machines don’t need staff at all but provide another way (and location) for getting material to patrons. And self-checkout machines aren’t just one trick ponies anymore.

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

·        Learn about five new low cost solutions for supporting materials handling functions

·        Be able to identify at least three types of self-service technologies that patrons like which also reduce materials handling work for staff

·        Learn the pros and cons of six different materials handling solutions

·        Understand that sorters are NOT just for big libraries with large spaces

·        Learn that routing slips pre-sorting can be eliminated when using a central sorter for interlibrary delivery

·        Be able to identify at least ten vendors that provide automated materials handling products

·        Understand that RFID is not necessary for implementing automated materials handling

·        Learn about the materials handling systems that are becoming common in libraries

This webinar will be of interest to library directors and managers and other staff involved in materials handling.

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

"Building a Library Aware Community: Making the Connection"


Sponsored By: NoveList/EBSCO


Scheduled Event Date: Thursday, February 16, 2012


Start Time: 2:00 PM EST (EASTERN TIME ZONE)






Description: Does your library need to build stronger community connections, but the thought of where to start leaves you feeling overwhelmed? This webinar will inspire you to kick-start the process.


We have gathered together four amazing librarians who will share the philosophies that helped them integrate outreach into their library’s DNA. They will talk about their programs that built strong community relationships, helped library staff members make incredible connections with high powered executives and helped a community get on board with using eBooks. Best of all, they will talk about how any of these programs can easily be scaled to your library.


And then we will move into “kitchen table” talks where our speakers will genuinely talk about the challenges they faced and overcame, as well as ideas they wished they had pursued (or still dream of pursuing).


Join us and get inspired by the energy, creativity, optimism, and leadership that have made each of these libraries successful.


Panelists:

·        Molly Fogarty, Springfield Library Director, Massachusetts

·        Susan Lyon, Richland County Library Learning Engagement Manager, Columbia, South Carolina

·        Gerry Meek, Calgary Public Library Chief Executive Officer, Alberta, Canada

"Your library at Webscale: How radical collaboration is redefining library management services"

Event Date: Thursday, February 21, 2012


Event Time: 12:00 PM EST/9:00 AM PST


Sponsored By: OCLC and Library Journal




Description: The ever-expanding set of Web services created in the last decade is changing everything about education, information seeking, communications and media. The Web has altered the expectations of our users and partners, and our ability to react to those expectations. In consulting our members, peers and thought leaders across the technology landscape one thing has become clear: the way forward requires a strategy built on increasing libraries’ opportunities for cooperation. Not just between libraries and the institutions they serve, but more creatively and completely within the larger information ecosystem. Because the same disruptive, complex, connected options that are challenging our libraries and communities are the forces that will help us break down the barriers to success.


Over the past decade, members of the library community have indicated a number of areas where traditional management systems lack the flexibility and connectivity to address the changing needs of their users. Confronting these issues distracts scarce resources from addressing high-priority local objectives that improve efficiency, service, and relevance.


OCLC WorldShare is the cooperative’s new platform for radical library collaboration. At this session, Andrew Pace, Executive Director, Networked Library Services, will provide an overview of OCLC’s vision for connecting the world’s libraries to operate and innovate at Webscale. You’ll also hear directly from library automation experts and members of the OCLC WorldShare Management Services community about how the move to WorldShare has eliminated traditional operating silos, allowing them to focus more attention on the communities they serve.


Learn what’s possible when you share more tools, protocols and data with more libraries, developers and partners. Your library can benefit from a pool that combines talents from all participating institutions. Shared apps boost creativity beyond what anyone can build themselves and allow for customization for local needs. And as you focus on delivering greater value to your users through distinctive, local resources, you can also drive efficiencies by moving routine operations to a shared, cloud-based infrastructure.

OCLC Research Distinguished Seminar Series

"Libraries as Read/Write Services"


Gary Marchionini is the Dean and Cary C. Boshamer Professor in the School of Information and Library Science at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He teaches courses in human-information interaction, interface design and testing, and digital libraries. He also heads the Interaction Design Laboratory at SILS.


In this presentation, Professor Marchionini will discuss two trends that are driving foundational shifts in libraries of the 21st century. First, the development of digital libraries has expanded the nature of service communities beyond local geography and influences the need to collect the works of global interest. This, in turn, is causing libraries to distinguish themselves by focusing their digital collections on local materials that are unique, becoming more like archives that curate singular materials. Second, people increasingly work, play, and live with the aid of electronic technologies that create traces of life's behaviors. People consciously and unconsciously create documents, photos, and files as well as streams of interactions with other people and with myriad electronic systems. Individual traces of our lives in cyberspace in aggregate represent what Gary Marchionini terms "proflections" of our personal identities. Libraries have trusted roles to play in helping people manage their personal digital libraries—to provide "write" as well as "read" services to their patrons. Inevitably, some of the personal assets will become part of the public collection with patron permission. Libraries must develop strategies to support deposit (writing) of patron assets and to manage the blurring of boundaries between personal and public digital libraries. The School of Information and Library Science at UNC's LifeTime Library Project aims to develop and teach such strategies.


This Distinguished Seminar Series presentation begins at 9:00 a.m. Eastern Standard Time (UTC 14:00) and is followed by a question and answer session at 10:00 a.m. (UTC 15:00). You are welcome to attend this presentation in person or remotely via WebEx. Advanced registration is encouraged, but not required. Registering in advance allows us to alert you if the lecture should need to be rescheduled.
