LAIP has networked with hundreds of libraries who are working with their communities to incubate and inspire creative projects.

Description: Youth in grades K-12 spend an astounding 81% of their time in informal learning environments outside of school. Libraries are a locus of informal learning. As the number of STEM related careers continues to multiply, libraries can play a key role in fostering the interest and excitement for STEM learning that may be missing in schools. Through the generous support of a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services, Kitsap Regional Library System (KRL) has developed a ready-to-use system that empowers libraries of all sizes to become community STEM leaders. If you feel like an "accidental STEM librarian" and are wondering how to get started, staff at this semi-rural library system will share fresh ideas and hands-on, practical advice for planning and implementing impactful programs. Learn how to take the lead with informal learning for youth and families in your community.

Carterette Series Webinar (Georgia Library Association and the Georgia Public Library Service)

“Emerging Issues in Copyright and Intellectual Property for Public Libraries”

Date & Time: April 13, 2016 -- 2PM EST (1PM CST | 12PM MST | 11AM PST)

Presenter: Ben Bryson, developed an interest in intellectual property issues while earning his M.S. in Library and Information Studies from Florida State University. He was able to further indulge this interest by participating in the Spring 2014 cohort of the CopyrightX course offered through Harvard Law School and the Berkman Center for Internet and Society. Ben currently serves as Assistant Director of the Marshes of Glynn Libraries. He previously worked at Coastal Pines Technical College (formerly Altamaha Technical College) as Assistant Director of Library Services and Reference & Instruction Librarian. He has led presentations on copyright at a variety of professional meetings and has assisted in the creation of institutional copyright policies and procedures.

Description: Copyright issues may be familiar territory to those working in academic libraries, but a discussion of copyright and intellectual property is not as common in the public library setting. Although it seems to play a background role in the services that public libraries perform, copyright law gives public libraries the legal standing to perform traditional services such as lending books. As public libraries begin to expand these traditional services to embrace digitization and makerspaces, for example, a thorough review of copyright will provide valuable insight into possible issues they may face.

This session will begin with a discussion of copyright law, especially where it directly mentions the services that public libraries provide. This discussion will also include a review of fair use and its relation to copyright. Next, the session will investigate how public libraries can approach copyright and other intellectual property issues through best practices as they offer new technologies and services such as makerspaces, digitization, and assistive devices.


TechSoup for Libraries Webinar

“Emerging Issues in Copyright and Intellectual Property for Public Libraries”

Date & Time: Wed, Apr 27, 2016. 11:00 AM PDT.

Presenters: Amanda Zuccarelli, Ray DeLara, Crystal Schimpf

  
Description: Instagram is a highly popular social network, and one that is increasingly being used by libraries to engage with patrons and supporters. Instagram’s user-friendly interface makes it easy to broadcast pictures and short videos to a wide audience. But just like any social media tool, it is important to know what works (and what doesn’t) when it comes to using Instagram to share library information. 

Come to this free webinar to learn from two libraries who have been successfully using Instagram to engage with their communities, and to share positive library messages with the larger community of Instagram users across the world. From promoting library materials to showcasing library services, these libraries will share good practices that they have learned along the way.
 

* Burlingame Public Library (CA) uses their Instagram account to share its unique story visually through a combination of captivating photos and videos.

* Cherry Hill Public Library (NJ) uses their Instagram account to promote library materials and services, celebrate libraries in general, and to convey a love of reading and books.
