Greetings everyone!
The "Library Futures: Staying Ahead of the Curve 2010" webcast series will begin in November:

November 13. 2009: Millennials in the Library 
January 29, 2010: Making the Best of a Shrinking Budget: Creative in a New Economy 
February 19, 2010: Cataloging: Where are we now? Where are we going?

All webcasts will be from 9:00a - 10:30 PT.

Register now for one or more webcasts by completing BCR's online registration form. This series of webcasts is being made available free of charge to staff from Oregon libraries through a statewide membership to BCR, paid for by the Oregon State Library with LSTA funds.  

These webcasts are staff development opportunities in the best sense of the term! They give staff a solid framework for problem-solving in today's complex library environment and they are cost-effective ways for staff to stay current and informed on libraries' use of technology. You and your staff can maximize these opportunities by bringing a group of interested staff together to watch; organize discussions about the impact of the shows' content on your library; and brainstorm follow-up actions suitable for your library environment.

Alternatives to the live webast are also available:

Libraries may downlink the satellite coordinates to the five webcasts for on-site viewing via the registration form (view the downlink site-license terms here).

Additionally, the webcasts will be archived and available for 30 days following the live broadcast, also available free of charge.

Libraries may order tapes or DVDs of the broadcasts for their collections for $30 each.  Please contact BCR's Regan Harper rharper at bcr.org for ordering information. The Oregon State Library will be adding the DVDs to our LIS collection and will announce their availability via Libs-OR, our LIS Blog, and our website.
DVD recordings for the 2008-2009 Soaring to Excellence series are now available via ILL from the Oregon State Library -- please use your library's established interlibrary loan process or you may fax your request to the State Library document delivery department at 503-588-7119 with complete request information from our online catalog.
