Everything I Need and Want is in the Teen Section: YA Spatial Practices in New U.S. Public Libraries
While conventional LIS youth services concentrates on collections, this presentation, part of a 3-year IMLS National Leadership grant, engages a critical youth studies approach examining "spatial equity" for young adults in libraries: what current U.S. practices tell us. Recently collected quantitative data from both professionals and youth library users further inform on-going qualitative research with video ethnography and experimental 3D mockups of real spaces.
Many of us regard a move into management as "going to the dark side," but leadership is not only reserved for those with manager in their title. Learning effective supervisory skills can benefit many levels of work in the library, especially if you wear multiple hats in your organization serving as both staff peer and manager. Find out the top 10 actions to take and the top 10 mistakes to avoid as an everyday leader. By the end of this webinar, you'll have some simple and effective tools to help you work more powerfully with your colleagues or become the supervisor you always wanted to work for.
The usability and accessibility teams in MIT’s Department of Information Services and Technology have always worked closely together, but were formally merged during a department-wide reorganization in 2009. The goal in blending the teams was to provide a comprehensive service to clients without diluting individual practices. Over two years, we have strengthened our ability to advocate persuasively for both usability and accessibility with clients. We’ve also seen fewer projects slip through the cracks and observed standards applied more consistently. The merge has provided a greater understanding of why the two practices belong together, how this can happen, and the importance of commitment from administrative leadership.
LSSC will offer an hour-long webinar on the program and how it works. The presentation will explain the value of this certification to Library Support Staff, employers, and library users. You will also have the opportunity to have all of your questions answered by program staff members. This webinar is open to all interested candidates.
