“Geek the Library: Impact and Outcomes”

Date & Time: 4 December 2014. 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM Eastern Standard Time, North America [UTC -5] 

Presenters: 

- Anne Gienapp, Affiliated Senior Associate, ORSImpact

Description: Geek the Library, the public awareness campaign funded by the Gates Foundation and managed by OCLC, is being conducted by 1,800+ public libraries across 48 states through June 2015. In this webinar, we will hear from the evaluation team at ORS Impact, who have been conducting assessments of the program and compiled some remarkable data and stories from libraries who have completed their Geek the Library campaigns. These mostly rural libraries, serving very small to medium-sized communities, report improvements in staff marketing and advocacy skills, have seen an increase in public support for their libraries, as well as positive changes in funding resources. Geek the Library has shifted how people think about their local library, has changed how libraries interact with their community, and has been a game changer in a number of local funding situations. We will also hear directly from some of your library colleagues who have finished their Geek campaigns and who can talk about how their library's relationship with the community has irrevocably changed for the better. Whether or not you are a Geek library, we know you will be inspired by these results!

“Value-Added Facilitation”

Date & Time: December 10th, 2014. Start Time: Pacific - 12 Noon, Mountain - 1 PM, Central - 2 PM, Eastern - 3 PM

Presenter: Joan Frye Williams

Description:

As library work becomes more team oriented and community focused, we find ourselves participating in more meetings. The accepted wisdom is that designating a facilitator will ensure that meeting time is well spent. Is that true for your library? Even when someone is facilitating,

- Do meetings tend to be all talk and no action?

- Can a few outspoken participants dominate the conversation?

- Does the group sometimes have trouble moving from brainstorming to decision-making?

- Does lack of information or disagreement about the facts impede progress?

- Do the people with the ideas lack the authority to implement them?

- Do long standing conflicts resurface so that nothing gets resolved?

Sound familiar? It may be time to rethink your approach to meeting facilitation. In this lively webinar, we will explore ways to reinvigorate the facilitator role to add more value to the meeting process. You will learn skills that can elevate facilitation beyond simply calling on meeting participants and recording their comments. Our focus will be on active facilitation tips and techniques, including how to:

- Stay neutral on content while exerting leadership on process,

- Frame questions and set expectations,

- Analyze comments in real time and sort them for ease of comparison,

- Identify and address gaps in the discussion,

- Resolve conflicts and reach consensus, and

- Create work products that allow ideas to move forward.

If you are a member of the library community who is already – or might someday be – called upon to act as a facilitator, this webinar will help you improve your effectiveness, increase your value to your organization, and make more productive use of meeting time.

This webinar will be of interest to library staff at all levels, as well as library friends, trustees, and commissioners.


Webinars are free of charge; you can pre-register by clicking on the Register Now button (at the top and bottom of this page). If registering with less than 30 MINUTES from the start of the webinar you can join directly from the thank you page by clicking the Join Now button. If you pre-registered you will receive an email with login link and a reminder email the day before the event.
