Description: 

Does your library have a social media policy?

Chances are, it doesn't...but it almost certainly should. Learn why you need one, and what points are essential. Discover how writing this kind of policy can be completely different than writing any other kind for a library, and what you might need in a policy for staff versus what you might need to spell out for patrons.

This webinar will help you to understand some current best practices that you can use to guide you through the process of drafting your own social media policy for your library.

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

- Be able to identify at least three reasons for which your library should have a social media policy.

- Be able to identify at least five points that should be covered in a social media policy for library employees.

- Understand how your library's current social media policy may be breaking the law.
- Be familiar with at least one key difference in purpose for a policy for patrons, as opposed to employees.

This webinar will be of interest to Library Administrative staff, HR staff, and those working with social media issues.

Knowing the answer to that question will make the library a trusted resource for help and accurate information.

“Apps for iPads in the Children’s Department”


Date & Time: April 29, 2014. 2pm to 3:30pm CDT

 

Description: This webinar will introduce selection criteria, review sources, and outstanding early literacy and early math and science Apps for iPads, including Spanish and multi-lingual Apps.

 

Today’s children are growing up surrounded by technology and using tablets comes naturally to them. Many libraries provide iPads and Apps in their children’s departments and incorporate Apps into their storytimes to help children develop early literacy, math, science, and technology skills. Apps provide valuable early learning experiences and introduce concepts and technology in a developmentally appropriate manner. Our nation is committed to early learning as a national priority essential to our economic and civic future. Libraries play a significant role in providing early learning experiences that build a child’s brain, fuel a love of learning, and contribute to success in learning to read, in school, and in life.

 

Join Christine McNew, independent library consultant and children's services expert, for this engaging webinar.

Presenter: Christine McNew is an independent library consultant and trainer with a passion for early literacy and early math and science. She earned an MLIS with a specialization in Youth Services from the University of Texas at Austin.
