*FREE!* *01/06/14** Leading from the Library!
Tips and tricks for stepping out of the stacks and into the limelight as
instructional, pedagogical and technological library leaders! With Library
Girl, Jennifer LaGarde and Jennifer Northrup, The Candid Librarian.

*FREE!** 01/07/14 The Edge Initiative for Public Libraries
The Edge is a new management and leadership tool that is helping libraries
and local governments work together to achieve community goals. With this
professional tool, libraries can be better positioned to address community
issues like creating a stronger economy, ensuring workforce development and
leading lifelong learning. Through an easy to use suite of tools, Edge
supports libraries in making strategic decisions and identifying areas for
improvement. The Edge Toolkit gives libraries a look into their local data,
from operations to partnerships and programming, to assess how their
community is using the technology and how best practices can be put into
place to align future growth and services with community priorities. It
also provides useful resources to package and showcase the data to other
community leaders.

*FREE! 01/07/14 When a Story is More than Paper: Transmedia and Young Adult
Transmedia is a more than just a hot buzzword in the publishing world. It’s
also a way of reaching technologically-savvy users and reluctant readers.
In this webinar you’ll learn more about the phenomenon, how publishers
create transmedia, how users access it, what the barriers to access are,
what’s happening in libraries currently, and how you can use transmedia to
connect with users, particularly teens.

*FREE! 01/08/14 Rockin’ the Virtual Classroom
Virtual classroom technology (ILinc, Adobe Connect, WebEx, Elluminate,
etc.) provides a wonderful live, real-time bridge between the traditional
classroom and the learner. But it isn't "just like" the traditional
classroom, and in the wrong hands can be deadly dull. In this session we'll
learn to read virtual "body language" , look at ways to increase
interactivity and engagement, utilize games and activities, and create
visuals that support learning.

*FREE! 01/09/14 Beyond EAD: Tools for Creating and Editing EAC-CPF Records
and "Remixing" Archival Metadata
The webinar will feature demonstrations of two tools, xEAC and RAMP, that
will help archivists and librarians explore new possibilities for name
authority work, moving beyond the boundaries of traditional archival
metadata. We’ve scheduled the session for 90 minutes to allow ample time
for demonstrations and questions.

*FREE! 01/09/14 New Audios for the New Year
