Google, Bing, and Yahoo, are three of the most popular search engines used. Regardless of which one you prefer, chances are there will be information that cannot be found in these traditional sources. 

In this workshop, we will focus on the other search options available to us, such as Subject Directories, Social Media, and Alternate search engines, and how they differ from the popular engines used.  We will discuss the pros and cons of using these alternate resources and when to use them.

This workshop will be led by Rita Gavelis, LibAssist - http://www.libassist.com/, rita@libassist.com.

Do you know: Who is a “person with a disability” under the ADA and what your obligations are? Whether you’re required to permit a miniature horse accompanying a person with a disability into your library? What are auxiliary aids and services, when they need to be provided and what is an “undue burden”? Whether a monkey can be a service animal? What to do if you get a request for a scent-free room from a person with multiple chemical sensitivity? Using real scenarios we’ll clarify what are ADA obligations and what is customer service. We’ll review how much accessibility is required in older building. We’ll discuss disability-related language and etiquette issues. There will be plenty of time for your questions.

Agenda
1. Brief overview of ADA
2. ADA definition of disability
3. General non-discrimination requirements
4. Preferred language
5. Reasonable modifications of policies, practices and procedures
6. Service animals
7. Ensuring effective communication
8. Disability etiquette

    Contact: Scott Kehoe   1-866-627-7228   scott@masslibsys.org
   

We all have used search engines to find information. The most important part of any search is choosing the correct terms for the query.  If you use words that are too common, your results will be vague, retrieving millions of hits.  If the keywords are too specific, the search results will often be too narrow resulting in too few.

In this workshop, we will explore the common features built into search engines that will assist us in retrieving accurate results.  We’ll also look at how to use advanced tricks such as exact phrases, relational terms, wildcards, limiters, and format searches.

This workshop will be led by Rita Gavelis, LibAssist - http://www.libassist.com/.

misc_none 10:00 AM  -  11:30 AM Everyone’s a Readers’ Advisor: Training & Merchandising Strategies For Library Staff Remind Me about this Event Download Event Info Tell a Friend
    Contact: Amanda Fauver   1-866-627-7228   amanda@masslibsystem.org
   

In this program, we'll talk about the skills associated with providing readers' advisory beyond the RA interview, focusing on the importance of good displays and merchandising. We'll use many photos of effective displays, both in the library world and outside of it, to demonstrate why certain simple tricks can both increase your circulation and increase your connections with patrons. And finally, we'll talk about how you can share these new (or refreshed!) skills with everybody in your library in order to catalyze more excitement around your library's readers' advisory services.
Objectives:
After participating in this webinar, you will be able to:
• Identify a few simple tricks that will enhance the effectiveness of any book display
• Implement a set of guidelines that will keep displays and shelves looking approachable and browsable
• Begin training your colleagues or staff on how to use these principles

    Contact: Amanda Fauver   1-866-627-7228   amanda@masslibsystem.org
   

Have you fallen into a rut with your programs for school-age children and teens? Are you looking for ways to be more efficient in your program planning? In this webinar, we’ll start to rethink programming by getting back to the roots of why we offer programs for youth in the first place. After discussing some of the pitfalls that make programming for these ages difficult, we’ll explore unprogramming–a programming style and philosophy that lets you offer engaging, library-connected programs without putting undue stress on you, your budget, or your planning time. Unprogramming is all about high-impact programs with low-stress planning. To make sure you’re fully equipped to start offering unprograms at your library following this webinar, we’ll explore a number of ready-to-modify unprogram ideas and go-to planning resources. We’ll conclude with ideas and strategies to help any staff adapt to this new programming style.

This webinar will be led by Amy Koester, Youth & Family Program Coordinator at Skokie Public Library, and author of the Show Me Librarian blog.
