"Growing Through Conflict: Healthy Workplace Communication"

Date & Time: 10 September 2015, 3:00 PM – 4:00 PM Eastern Daylight Time, North America [UTC -4]


Presenter: Anna Shelton, Project Coordinator, WebJunction

Description: We are all so busy! Who has time to deal with conflicts? When conflict occurs, and we are confronted with a colleague, library patron, supervisor, or board member who is frustrated and upset, it can be tempting to identify a quick fix. However, when we do take the time to practice clear communication to uncover what people really need, we can get to better outcomes. Healthy communication involves:

- Actions that show you are really listening
- Communication with people who are angry or upset in a way that their needs can be addressed and resolved.
- Knowing your own emotions and needs, and effective ways to express them.

Practicing healthy communication skills will boost your self-confidence and contribute to a happier workplace.

Carterette Series Webinar

(Georgia Library Association and the Georgia Public Library Service)


Date & Time: September 9, 2015 -- 3PM EST (2PM CST | 1PM MST | 12PM PST)

Presenter: Randall S. Gooden is an associate professor of history at Clayton State University in Morrow. He teaches family history and genealogy at the university and has been an avid genealogist since he was a child. He also shares the perspective of librarians and archivists on genealogy and genealogists as a former assistant curator for the West Virginia and Regional History Collection at West Virginia University, head of the archives and library at Ohio Historical Society's Youngstown Historical Center of Industry and Labor, and circuit rider archivist for the Georgia Archives.

Description: A love-hate relationship often exists between libraries and genealogy. Many libraries acknowledge that genealogists account for a sizeable portion of their visitors, but the enthusiasm and expectations of genealogists often place burdens on reference/research and acquisitions staff. How can you better understand genealogists and their needs and draw upon that understanding to benefit your library? This Webinar takes you on a journey toward mutual appreciation and support.

Date & Time: Wed, Sep 9, 2015 9:00 PM - 10:00 PM SAST

Description: STEAM programs--those that incorporate science, technology, engineering, arts, and math--are interesting, engaging, and educational, and they appeal to a wide range of youth library customers. This webinar will explore all aspects of offering STEAM programs for preschoolers and school-age children in the library: how STEAM fits the library mission, what age-appropriate STEAM programs look like, how to identify and approach potential community partners, and strategies for gathering go-to program planning resources. Attendees will leave the webinar equipped to offer hands-on STEAM learning opportunities for youth, regardless of library size or budget. This Webinar will be presented by Amy Koester, Youth & Family Program Coordinator, Skokie Public Library in Skokie, Illinois.

"STEAM & Día: Offering Informal Learning with a Mind Toward Diversity"

Date & Time: Wed, Sep 30, 2015 9:00 PM - 10:00 PM SAST

Description: Libraries are optimal institutions to provide informal learning: we can structure programs around our own goals instead of formal curricula, and our offerings are freely available to anyone in the community. Yet it is vital that we recognize that the children who attend our programs--especially STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and math) program--are likely not all on a level playing field. Young students of color routinely score lower in math and science than their white peers due to lack of access and preparation in STEAM areas. The library can help bridge this STEAM gap with programs developed with the intent of having a positive impact on every child who participates. Attendees will leave the webinar with tools and resources to allow your STEAM programming to reach the full spectrum of your community.
