Infopeople Webinars

"Handling Challenging Situations: What Do I Do Now? Part I of II"

Date & Time: Tuesday, May 14, 2013
Start Time: Pacific - 12 PM, Mountain - 1 PM, Central - 2 PM, Eastern - 3 PM
Description: Handling Challenging Situations 1 of 2

* Is your library staff overwhelmed by users behaving badly?
* Does your code of conduct sufficiently address users’ inappropriate behaviors?
* Are staff resentful of having to act as de facto social workers?

To a great extent, libraries’ users behave within the framework of acceptable social norms. But a subset of users in all libraries – large, small, urban, rural, suburban, special and academic – behave outside these norms, placing stress on the staff and other users. Whether the behaviors are exhibited by those who are homeless, mentally ill or just plain rude, providing your staff with limit-setting and self-care skills can turn challenging situations into empowering ones. San Francisco Public Library has turned to other City agencies to assist staff in gaining skills and strategies for responding to these situations.

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

* Be able to identify at least 3 reasons why it is important to set limits with users.
* Be able to share with co-workers at least 3 effective strategies on how to set limits with users.
* Be able to articulate the importance of the concept of self-care and be familiar with self-care strategies following a difficult interaction with a user.

This webinar will be of interest to library front-line staff, primarily in public libraries but useful no matter the setting.
Please note: Part Two of this series will be presented next Tuesday, May 21, 2013 at 12 Noon Pacific.

"Planning an Adult Program on a Budget: Creative Library Program Solutions"

Date & Time: Wednesday, May 15, 2013
Start Time: Pacific - 12 PM, Mountain - 1 PM, Central - 2 PM, Eastern - 3 PM

Description:

* Want to start programming but don’t know where to start?
* Need help on providing quality programs on a limited budget?

This webinar will introduce the beginning program coordinator to the basic tools necessary to plan, implement and evaluate successful library programs for adult programming on a budget. From book discussions and author visits to craft programs and film screenings, this webinar is designed to help public librarians create programming that underscore the role of the public library as an important cultural, recreational and educational institution in the community.

This webinar will provide participants with ideas and samples of programs they can bring to their own library. A step-by step process and details including getting started, program types and associated costs, resources for low cost programs, and marketing and evaluating programs.

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

* Be able to identify at least three types of low cost programs
* Be able to identify potential community partners within the community

"Handling Challenging Situations: What Do I Do Now? Part II of II"

Date & Time: Tuesday, May 21, 2013
Start Time: Pacific - 12 PM, Mountain - 1 PM, Central - 2 PM, Eastern - 3 PM

Description: Handling Challenging Situations 2 of 2

* Are staff uncomfortable with library users they perceive to be homeless?
* Are you looking for ways to reach users in need of social services?
* Is your library a model for others hoping to provide wider services?

A partnership between the San Francisco Public Library and the local Department of Public Health resulted in the placement of a social worker at the Main Library to link users to housing and social services. Eventually a job-training component was added, providing opportunities to develop marketable skills for people who had been homeless. Meet and hear the story of a library outreach worker who helps herself by helping others.

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

* Know the basic library behavior guidelines for homeless and mentally ill users
* Learn about successful outreach and job training opportunities for homeless library users
* Have strategies for helping people unreceptive to offers of help

This webinar will be of interest to library front-line staff, primarily in public libraries but useful no matter the setting.
