In 1998 Omaha Public Library created its first online digital library to showcase its extensive collection of original photographs and documents from the 1898 Trans-Mississippi and International Exposition, Omaha’s own world’s fair. Another digitization project was undertaken in 2004. A decade later it was only too evident that the entire digital library, with its hodgepodge of different interfaces and metadata standards, needed to be dragged into the 21st century. We did it—despite minimal staff, minimal training, and minimal time! Come hear this saga of the good, the bad, and the ugly, and what we learned from it.

New research is showing that emotional intelligence is no longer a “nice-to-have.” It’s a need to have in today’s workplace and serves as the building block for professional success. It’s not a building block that’s isolated to a few professions or job roles. It’s just about as universal as a success principle can be. EQ, however, is widely misunderstood as something people either have or don’t have. Join us for this webinar as we outline a development plan for your leaders, managers and key employees to help improve EQ across your organization.
