Here are some great tutorials and articles from WebJunction. I particularly like the first one below:

·          eReader Detective: Solving the case for your library patrons:<http://learn.webjunction.org/course/search.php?search=eReader+Detective> Asking the right questions, tracking clues, and following paths of inquiry are part of the process to support your eReading patrons. With all the combination of eReader devices, file formats, and eContent providers, how can we possibly be prepared for each encounter? This free course can help you on your way. If you don’t already have a free account in the WebJunction Course Catalog, you’ll need to sign up to get started, but that will open the door to almost 40 self-paced courses on a wide range of topics to meet your learning needs.

·         Stories of Inclusion: Inclusive Practices at Cultural Institutions<http://www.webjunction.org/news/webjunction/stories-of-inclusion-inclusive-practices-at-cultural-institutions.html>: It’s been 25 years since the passage of the ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act), and a new webinar series enlists advocates and experts to explore issues of accessibility and inclusion from the perspective of visitors, staff and program users in museums, libraries, archives and other cultural institutions. And to support this important topic, the American Alliance of Museums is inviting you to host a “Watch and Talk” viewing event at your library. This is a learning experience enriched by watching a webinar and then discussing it with your colleagues, and there’s no cost to you as a host, or for your attendees!

·         The Social Library<http://www.webjunction.org/news/webjunction/the-social-library-volume-twentynine.html>: Great programming inspiration from around the country as libraries connect with their communities. One of the featured libraries is addressing early literacy, another is reaching out to millennials, and one library wins the most unique programming award of the week, with their annual car show.

Upcoming Webinars

Public Health and Public Libraries: Libraries as Health Literacy First Responders
Wednesday, October 21, 2015 ♦ 3 pm Eastern / 12 pm Pacific ♦ 60 min
Registration: http://www.webjunction.org/events/webjunction/public-health-and-public-libraries.html
Misinformation about health abounds in today’s info-glutted environment. What is the role of public libraries in addressing issues of accurate health information? Public libraries are uniquely positioned to contribute to healthy communities by providing informed access to reliable health information. This panel presentation provides an overview of the field of public health, highlighting innovative health promotion initiatives at public libraries, and covering training and funding resources for health-related library outreach and programming. Join the conversation about building your community’s health literacy.
Presented by: Lydia N. Collins, Consumer Health Coordinator, National Network of Libraries of Medicine, Middle Atlantic Region; Anita Kinney, Program Analyst, United States Access Board; Christian Minter, Nebraska/Education Coordinator, National Network of Libraries of Medicine, Mid-Continental Region
Storytime Underground: A Peer-Created Community (archive available<http://www.webjunction.org/events/webjunction/storytime-underground-a-peer-created-community.html>, will need to create free login)
Library practitioners who provide storytimes have a gold mine of ideas to share and questions to ask of each other. Storytime Underground<http://storytimeunderground.org/> is your online community to connect with peers and enhance your practice. Learn about Storytime University, where you earn digital badges for participating in professional development activities and learning new skills; learn about Guerrilla Storytime and how to host one in your area (spoiler alert: we give you all the tools you need!). Storytime Underground is open and free to anyone interested in storytimes and early literacy, regardless of the level of education or position held. It is created by and for storytime providers everywhere, so join us!
