Gaming @ Your Library

Date & Time: Monday, March 5, 2012 at 8pm EST

Hear about the benefits of gaming, discover how to embrace games that respects the users and the medium, and learn how you can incorporate video games into your library - even without paying a cent.

OCLC Research Webinar

Social Metadata for Libraries, Archives and Museums

Date & Time: Friday, 9 March 2012 at 9:00 PST/12:00 EST (UTC 17:00)

Description: Metadata helps users locate resources that meet their specific needs. But metadata also helps us to understand the data we find and helps us to evaluate what we should spend our time on. Traditionally, staff at libraries, archives, and museums (LAMs) create metadata for the content they manage. However, social metadata—content contributed by users—is evolving as a way to both augment and recontexutalize the content and metadata created by LAMs.
Cultural heritage organizations have been eager to expand their reach into user communities and to take advantage of users' expertise to enrich their descriptive metadata. In 2009-2010, a 21-member Social Metadata Working Group from five countries reviewed 76 sites relevant to libraries, archives, and museums that supported such social media features as tagging, comments, reviews, images, videos, ratings, recommendations, lists, links to related articles, etc. The working group analyzed the results of a survey sent to site managers and discussed the factors that contribute to successful—and not so successful—use of social metadata. We conducted interviews and compiled an extensive resource list. All informed our recommendations and are documented in three reports under the common title, Social Metadata for Libraries, Archives, and Museums.

Join this 90-minute interactive WebEx session, when five members of the Social Metadata Working Group will present highlights of our research and personal observations:

  • Observations on our research into social metadata—Marja Musson, International Institute of Social History, Amsterdam
  • Tagging, crowd-sourcing, and other uses of social metadata—Ken Varnum, University of Michigan
  • LAMs' use of third-party sites—Cyndi Shein, Getty Research Institute
  • Key points from our survey—Cheryl Gowing, University of Miami
  • Measuring successful use of social metadata—Elizabeth Yakel, University of Michigan School of Information

Program Officer Karen Smith-Yoshimura will introduce and facilitate the session.

Presenter(s):
·        Cheryl Gowing, University of Miami
·        Marja Musson, International Institute of Social History, Amsterdam
·        Cyndi Shein, Getty Research Institute
·        Karen Smith-Yoshimura, OCLC Research
·        Elizabeth Yakel, University of Michigan School of Information
·        Ken Varnum, University of Michigan

Content Creation for Teens

Date & Time: Wednesday, March 28, 2012
3:15 p.m. – 4:15 p.m. EASTERN STANDARD TIME

Description: As libraries continue to be squeezed out of the ebook lending picture and more and more patrons seek out information without library assistance, what is a viable path for libraries in the future? With more tools widely available for patrons to use to create their own content, libraries have a chance to transform from institutions that are only about borrowing to institutions about experiences.

Instead of just merely collecting “stuff” and lending it out to patrons, more and more libraries are encouraging their patrons to “make something” at the library. Whether it be the hackerspace at the Fayetteville Free Library, the YOUMedia lab at the Chicago Public Library, or smaller programs at other libraries throughout the country, libraries are offering more programs to encourage their patrons to be prosumers instead of just simply consumers.

In this webinar, Justin Hoenke will discuss the current trend of content creation at libraries. He will also share details about how to start up your own content creation programs and discuss his own content creation programs such as Make Music At The Library and Game On! Envisioning Your Own Video Game. Justin blogs at http://justinthelibrarian.com

Presenter: Justin Hoenke (Teen Librarian, Portland (Maine) Public Library)

Registration: OPENING SOON at:

Being Customer Focused: New and Emerging Trends in Customer Service

Date & Time: Wednesday, March 21, 2012
Start Time: Pacific - 12 PM, Mountain - 1 PM, Central - 2 PM, Eastern - 3 PM

Description: What is the use of a library if nobody comes? Or worse, what if they come but don’t come back?

Libraries offer a compelling set of resources and services to meet the needs of their communities. But old service models often focus on the needs of the library first, and the user second.

Retail establishments such as bookstores, coffee shops, information services, computing services, and purveyors of e-readers are all encroaching on the library’s core user base by replicating services traditionally associated with libraries. They really know what they’re doing, and we can, too!

Consumer research has shown repeatedly that understanding user needs and cultivating good customer relationships is key to the success of the modern organization. Creating a customer-focused library enables staff to know their users and meet their needs. A customer-focused library means more users, engaged staff, and a satisfying relationship with your community.

This one-hour webinar will present exciting success stories of customer-focused libraries, and will give participants strategies to shift their own libraries to a customer focus. At the end of the presentation, participants will:

·        Understand the changing customer service milieu in which libraries operate.
·        Be aware of tools and techniques to understand customer needs.
·        Learn scalable strategies for empowering customers to serve themselves and staff to give strong service.
·        Have a checklist to analyze their own organizations as well as best practices to get the process started.

This webinar will be of interest to staff in all types of libraries, especially front-desk staff.


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

Some mystery buffs choose the comfort of cozies or traditional Golden Age mysteries; others prefer to do a little time traveling with historicals. Then there are those readers who enjoy exploring the world with police procedurals and espionage thrillers set in exotic locales; other adventurous fans like a bit of the paranormal mixed in with their crime fiction. Whatever their literary tastes, these mystery lovers will be coming to you for the latest titles by their favorite authors and new discoveries by rising stars.To find the right books that will help your library patrons escape their worries for a while, join us for this webcast presentation in which our four featured publishers will share their hottest spring mysteries.
