Transforming Our Image

November 15, 2010
 1:00 p.m. CST

Instructor: Valerie Gross, President & CEO, Howard County (Md.) Library


WORDS make the difference.

Learn about a simple, effective strategy that will make you, your library, and your profession indispensible. It does not require changing anything you do...only modifying what you say.

Based on Valerie Gross' award-winning article, Transforming our Image through Words that Work: Perception is Everything (Public Libraries, Volume 48, Number 5 (2009): 24-32), this webinar, "Transforming Our Image,"<http://ala.informz.net/z/cjUucD9taT0xMDg0OTQ0JnA9MSZ1PTEwMjAwMTYxNDEmbGk9NDQ1NDU1MA/index.html> will describe a straightforward concept that enables libraries to heighten their importance by replacing traditional terms with powerful, intuitive, value-enhanced terminology.

At the conclusion of this one-hour webinar, you will be able to:

  *   Redefine libraries in a new, innovative way
  *   Align your library with what the community values most: education
  *   Incorporate intuitive value-enhancing words into your everyday lexicon
  *   Heighten your library's visibility and stature
  *   Develop strategies that you can integrate immediately into your work
