Webinar: “Movin’ on Up: Advancing into Academic Library Middle Management”

Wednesday, June 7, 2017
2pm Eastern (11am Pacific | 12pm Mountain | 1pm Central)
Can an academic librarian who has only worked on the front lines compete with those who have supervisory experience for middle management positions? What traits are hiring committees looking for in middle managers for public services, especially in applicants with no prior supervisory experience?

This webinar presents the findings of a qualitative study consisting of interviews with academic librarians who have served on hiring committees for middle-management positions, and with public services librarians who have recently made the transition from the front lines to their first supervisory position; and an analysis of the preferred and required qualifications in job ads for middle-management public services positions in academic libraries from the last five years. The presenters use these results to provide guidance on the steps frontline academic librarians can take in order to successfully translate their abilities, knowledge, and skills into their first supervisory position.

LLAMA Webinar: “Signs of the future: Using Digital Signage in Your Library”

“The days of posting important announcements on a library bulletin board and hoping someone might see them are ending. Today’s digital signage offers many more visible and effective options. Using technologies such as LCD, LED, projection, and tablets to display content as digital images, video, streaming media, and other formats, digital signage can be found in more and more libraries today. The Library Leadership and Management Association (LLAMA) will present “Signs of the future: Using Digital Signage in Your Library,” on Wed., May 24, at 1:30 – 3:00 pm (Central time). Join us to learn tips and tricks for how to create digital signage using best practices, and how to make a case for adding affordable digital signage to your library.

Beyond the Welcome Sign: Tailoring Immigrant Services for Success

May 11, 2017 live, and available as a recording later

“In this webinar, learn strategies from two LJ Movers & Shakers who help new immigrants feel welcomed by library and community.

There is much more to supporting immigrants and refugees than hanging out a “welcome” sign at your library. Successful programs and services are specifically tailored to meet the needs of the range of populations who may come through your doors. Hear from Movers & Shakers who work with communities to empower vulnerable and often underserved populations with a sense of belonging and self-reliance. Learn innovative approaches to identifying and celebrating immigrant leaders; how to foster networking between native-born and newcomer populations and between immigrant groups of varying national origins; how to highlight immigrant-positive narratives; and more. You’ll be sure to find practical ideas among the multi-pronged strategies that these librarians have used to ensure that new immigrants really do feel welcomed by the library and the community.

This webinar is part of a series highlighting the work of recent LJ Movers & Shakers and is hosted in collaboration with Library Journal.
