Information Cartographer: Social Media Librarians of the Future
Wednesday, July 20, 2011 ♦ 2 pm Eastern / 11 am Pacific ♦ 60 min.

Ever wonder if it's too late or too early to bring social media services to your library? Whether you are in a one-person library or one with one hundred staff, social media applications are impacting library services just like the Internet has. But how do you fit social media into your already busy schedule, and what has to change to make that possible? Will enough of your patrons use your new services to make it worth the effort? Come hear from a library that has successfully "operationalized" its social media services and actually has fun in the process.

Finding a Legal Comfort Zone on the Web
Wednesday, July 27, 2011 ♦ 2 pm Eastern / 11 am Pacific ♦ 60 min.

Allowing the public to contribute to, comment on and otherwise engage with your library's website content can be a scary thought, fraught with bogeymen real and imagined, lined with both success and horror stories, and seemingly paved with difficult policy decisions. But it really doesn't have to be that way. Eli Neiburger will present on how to move squeamish colleagues, administrators, or trustees to a point where web initiatives can be understood as less risky than the daily act of unlocking the front doors. He will demonstrate how to structure engagement on the web so that it doesn't require another written policy.

Trends in Library Training and Learning
August 10-11, 2011

Join us for this 2-day online conference, brought to you in collaboration with the ALA Learning Round Table<http://alalearning.org/>. Sessions will cover topics ranging from brain development and learning styles to instructional design and shifting trends in library learning. Presenters will provide practical solutions for libraries looking to implement both staff and patron training using innovative learning techniques that include formal and informal, and online and face-to-face methods. Register to attend one or both days and come and go as your schedule allows.
