Storytimes offer a great opportunity to show parents and caregivers that these are great books to read aloud to children, and not just for homework.

- Why and how to incorporate informational books into storytime, including concept books
- Titles of new informational books to use at storytimes
- How to pair storybooks to informational books on the same topic, with related activities

"Veterans and Mental Health - Suicide Prevention"

Date & Time: April 20th, 2017. Start Time: Pacific - 12 Noon, Mountain - 1 PM, Central - 2 PM, Eastern - 3 PM

Presenter: Tana Teicheira 

Description: Historically, active duty service members had lower rates of suicide than the general population; however, since 2005 the rates have increased dramatically, particularly among Soldiers and Marines. From 2005 to 2009 more than 1,100 members of the Armed Forces took their own lives: an average of one suicide every 36 hours. In 2014, an average of 20 Veterans died by suicide each day. Regardless of the numbers or rates, one Veteran suicide is one too many. Suicide is a major public health issue in the United States, but it is important to recognize that suicide is a preventable tragedy. With help comes hope.

In this webinar, participants will:

- Review recent suicide related data
- Understand Veteran’s increased risk for suicide
- Learn how to identify, address and mitigate risk for suicide
- Know where to contact the Veteran’s Crisis Line
- Understand trauma and resiliency

This webinar will be of interest to: library staff, volunteers, veterans and their family members, friends or caregivers who want to gain a better understanding and awareness of suicide prevention for Veterans.

"Capturing our State: The California State Government Web Archive"

Date & Time: April 24th, 2017. Start Time: Pacific - 12 Noon, Mountain - 1 PM, Central - 2 PM, Eastern - 3 PM

Presenters:

- Kris Kasianovitz, State, Local and International Government Information Librarian, Stanford University
- Shari Laster, Government Information Librarian & Data Services Librarian, UC Santa Barbara
- Julie Lefevre, Digital Services Librarian, Institute of Governmental Studies Library, UC Berkeley
- Lucia Orlando, Arts, Humanities, Social Sciences and Government Information Librarian, UC Santa Cruz

Description: 

- How long does a website last?
- Do you know where information on California's state government website is curated and stewarded for long-term access?
- Who does this work and why?
- Do you want to learn how to make sure that current and future library users can access important information about their government?

If any of these questions sound interesting, then this webinar is for you!
A group of librarians at the University of California, Stanford University, and the California State Archives and State Library are working to ensure that valuable evidence of our state's history are collected and preserved. California state government publications have nearly ceased being distributed in print; instead, they are now almost exclusively born-digital and available only on agency websites. Current research indicates that over 40% of the information presented on state government websites is inaccessible within seven years. California is no different when it comes to this statistic. Important California state (and local!) government information is at great risk of irretrievable loss.

Launched in 2008, the Archive of the California State Government domain, CA.gov, is a public collection of freely available web archived agency sites . This webinar will introduce participants to tools and process involved with creating and maintaining a web archive. We will discuss the history of the CA.gov archive as well the current LSTA-funded development work being done by a multi-institutional team.

In this webinar, participants will:

- Understand the basics of web archiving using Archive-It
- Be familiar with the scope and content of the CA.gov Web Archive
- Be able to search the CA.gov Web Archive and the Open WayBack Machine for state government information
- Know who to contact with questions about the project or suggest sites for inclusion in the archive
- Have ideas for web harvesting projects for your local government agencies

This webinar will be helpful to library staff who want to learn how to access web archives and develop ideas for instituting web archiving projects at their libraries.


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.

"The Art of Coding"

Description: Are you interested in offering a coding program, but not sure where to begin? Join us for this one-hour webinar that will cover how to facilitate a coding club or workshop in the context of art making.

- Explain what coding art means and why it’s important
- Use the resources provided to launch a coding club or an introductory workshop
