Interaction with strangers cultivates creativity and provides opportunities for joining forces to achieve great ends. However, most people tend to avoid talking or working with people they do not know, whether in the library, a classroom, or in academic and nonprofit settings. And to do so is to short-circuit much of the creative potential that is so necessary for innovation, and that organizational stakeholders crave. Enter CoLAB. Developed and presented by de Farber at workshops across the country, and used by the authors to successfully spur collaboration at the University of Florida (including faculty-librarian, librarian-librarian, librarian-student, faculty-faculty, student-student, and student-librarian-community member), it showcases the power of face-to-face conversations.

Participants in this webinar will gain:

*         General knowledge about CoLAB Workshops

*         Knowledge of how CoLABs have connected people to new networks and resources

*         An understanding of how CoLABs have been used in communities to reveal hidden assets

*         Guidance on how the handbook<http://ala-publishing.informz.net/z/cjUucD9taT03ODIyNzg3JnA9MSZ1PTEwMjY3MTY0MDUmbGk9NTcwODczMjY/index.html> can be used to facilitate these workshops

This free, 60-minute webinar will be led by Bess G. de Farber and April Hines, who will discuss how CoLABs have connected people to new networks and resources. You'll gain an understanding of how CoLABs have been used in communities to reveal hidden assets as well as guidance on how their How-To-Do-It Manual<http://ala-publishing.informz.net/z/cjUucD9taT03ODIyNzg3JnA9MSZ1PTEwMjY3MTY0MDUmbGk9NTcwODczMjY/index.html> can be used to facilitate these workshops. Be sure to bring your questions!
