 <https://infopeople.org/civicrm/event/info?id=759&reset=1> Emerging Tech Trends in the Library - Part 8

Presented by Laura Solomon

 

With so much new technology coming at us so fast, it can be difficult to keep up. As part of the Emerging Tech Trends series, presenter Laura Solomon continues the exploration into emerging technology trends, and how these trends might (or might not) re-shape library services.

Topics for this part 8 webinar include:

.       The blockchain (how it works, real uses beyond cryptocurrency, how
it might affect libraries)

.       Realities (the state of virtual reality, the rise of augmented
reality, mixed reality)

.       AI-powered chatbots, the subscription economy and voice-powered
interactions (real-world applications that are not Alexa)

Remember, we can't track everything, but we can pick out some patterns in what's currently happening around us.

 <https://infopeople.org/civicrm/event/info?id=757&reset=1> Visual Merchandising for Public Libraries: Practical Strategies for Applying Bookstore Insights to Library Collections Presented by Allison Fiscus

Does your library struggle to promote its collection in a way that is attractive, maintainable, and - above all - successful at increasing circulation? This webinar aims to supply librarians with the knowledge, tools, and plans necessary to merchandise their own libraries.

Visual merchandising is not just a tool for retail establishments. When done well, it can create a dynamic environment that encourages the customer to stay longer, check out more materials, and return for more. Public libraries can embrace the knowledge that retail stores have long used by taking some basic steps and applying some simple principles to organize library materials in a way that attracts attention and promotes use.

At the end of this one-hour webinar, participants will:

.       Learn the importance of library material presentation through visual
merchandising in terms of customer reactions and expectations, as well as cultural trends

.       Understand which changes to library merchandising should be
considered to positively affect circulation and how to begin implementing those changes

.       Understand the basic principles of visual merchandising in a way
that is specifically complimentary to books and other library materials

.       Be familiar with potential challenges and solutions that are
inherent in the diverse buildings, shelving, staffing levels, and amount of materials owned by different libraries

 <https://infopeople.org/civicrm/event/info?id=765&reset=1> Reducing Workplace Stress with Mindfulness Presented by Katie Scherrer

Do you sometimes feel distracted at work? Do you feel pulled in too many directions simultaneously? Do you feel stress from your work life creeping into your personal time?

Mindfulness is a simple practice that can help all of us reduce stress by connecting to the present moment. It requires no special equipment or prior experience and can be practiced anywhere at any time. 

This webinar will introduce participants to the practice of mindfulness by presenting basic science about the practice and its benefits, connecting the experience of mindfulness to library work, and by guiding participants through several beginning practices in real time.

At the end of this one-hour webinar, participants will:

. Know what mindfulness is and understand at a basic level how the practice of mindfulness reduces stress

. Have engaged in three beginner mindfulness practices they can continue to use on their own

. Know some ways in which other libraries are implementing mindfulness practices with staff and users

. Know resources they can turn to for more information about mindfulness for themselves and their users


This webinar will be of interest to: public librarians, public library staff, academic librarians, school librarians, youth services librarians, administrators, managers.

Subject: What book does she want?

Hello Colleagues,

Can anyone help me determine which book is wanted by a patron?

Published in the 80s.  It’s the story of a single ship which survives some kind of plague.  It is NOT “On the Beach,” by Neville Shute.  Patron thinks the title is “The Ship,” but of course you get thousands of hits when searching that! The characters eventually end up on an island (?) somewhere and begin to build a new civilization.  There are so few women that the men have to share them, and love relationships are not permitted.

Anybody know what this is?

Thank you so much!

Kathy

Subject: [PubLib] Cataloging refresher sought



Trying to find 1 online refresher course that covers subject analysis, access points, LOC, Dewey, marc, AACRII and RDA.  (Graduated in 2011)



Have reviewed ALA learning, OCLC and the Library of Congress website's online education and support, and can't find what I'm looking for.  LOC does have reference material, but what I am looking for is one actual online course.  1 refresher that covers it all. An elearning webinar series would be great.



Anyone have any ideas where to direct me, or know of something close to it?



Thanks,

Please reply to:
