Technology has changed the face of libraries, and is continuing to change how we work and how we deliver services to customers. This presentation focuses on emerging technology trends, and how those trends are re-shaping library services. Examples of incorporating emerging trends into libraries are provided.

He speaks internationally about emerging trends, social media, websites and libraries, and has been published in many library-related journals. David is a Library Journal Mover and Shaker.

misc_none 10:00 AM  -  12:00 PM Becoming a PA Forward Star Library Remind Me about this Event Download Event Info Tell a Friend
   

Join us for a two-hour interactive session to learn how your library can become recognized as a PA Forward Star Library!

PA Forward works through five key literacies – Basic, Information, Civic & Social, Health and Financial – to assist all residents in enhancing their overall quality of life. In 2015, one of the PA Library Association’s Academy of Leadership Studies (or PALS) cohorts conceived the Star Library Program and the more the program took form, the more they realized the potential for a longer-term opportunity.

The Star Library recognition offers support to libraries who participate and incorporate the literacies in their programming activities. They are then recognized for meeting benchmarks within the bronze, silver and gold star level categories within the program.

The workshop will offer an overview of how the program works, work through exercises with you to demonstrate how your current program is already taking you through the Star Library process and talk to you how to engage your partners in the Star Library process with you.

Many people don’t know the difference between creating a compensation system and setting a salary for a position. A compensation system requires setting a compensation philosophy, which includes making decisions about how internal salaries will compare with each other and how they will compare to the market overall. This workshop describes the elements of a compensation system and includes other steps that include determining salary grades and ranges and establishes a salary administration plan. This does not have to be complicated for small organizations, but is worth investing the time to ask and answer some key strategic questions to support your most valuable asset: your people.

    Contact: Laurie Anderson   4129211123   andersonla@einetwork.net
   

Many nonprofit board members recognize that it is important to conduct performance reviews, but often performance evaluations are not conducted unless there is a problem to address. Some boards rate their directors only based on financial performance. Nonprofit executives should have a balanced set of goals based on the vision, mission and direction of the organization; the board should support the executive in achieving those goals and formally evaluate performance on an annual basis. This workshop covers the “step by step” methods to set performance criteria, support the executive director to ensure their successful performance, and how to conduct an annual performance evaluation.
