  1. The Art of Communication

    March 25, 2019, 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM

    Sponsored by- Utah State Library In this 90-minute webinar, we’ll take a close look at how you communicate – and why it matters. We’ll also discuss our listening skills – or lack thereof! We’ll find out whether you are auditory, visual, or kinesthetic, and how to identify those communication styles in others. We’ll talk about just what that means in your everyday interactions. Want to know how to best get your message across to a specific person? This session will help you figure that out! And if you’ve ever been guilty of “not listening” (who, me??), we’ll also look closely at how you can become a more effective listener – and improve your life! We’ll come up with a list of at least 20 tips you can use to make sure you are really listening to those around you.

  6. Strategic Planning in a Deeply Weird World: The Flexible Roadmap Field Guide Approach

    March 26, 2019, 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

    Sponsored by- WebJunction It's a big task to define the library’s future over the next three or five years, and strategic planning is becoming less and less effective in a rapidly changing world. The Salt Lake City Public Library (SLCPL) has created a new approach that is flexible, staff-driven, and human-centered. SCLPL's Strategic Roadmap is not a 100-page plan in a binder-on-a-shelf; it’s an experiential learning tool that invites all staff to participate in the co-creation of meaningful outcomes and experiences for the community. The Roadmap focuses less on planning and more on building capacity of staff to adopt a human-centered service design mindset and skillset. SLCPL staff are adopting a new perspective, continually experimenting with and adapting spaces, collections, services, programs, and their own roles, to responsively address community needs and aspirations in an ever-changing landscape.

  8. Using Reddit and NextDoor to Engage with Your Library’s Local Community

    March 27, 2019, 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

    Sponsored by- Texas State Library and Archives Commission Reddit, also known as “the front page of the internet,” is an incredibly popular web forum–with thousands of sub-forums (“subreddits”) for any topic you can think of–and many of your local community members of all ages are on there reading news, browsing, and engaging with content. While anyone can post anonymously on Reddit, another community-oriented website, NextDoor, allows verified neighbors in defined geographic regions to discuss real-time happenings specific to their neighborhoods. Libraries have a unique opportunity to connect with their users on these platforms, and two library tech enthusiasts will explain why you should, and how to get started!
