Kansas librarians will want to keep one eye on the excellent webinars that are being offered by WebJunction Kansas. They can always be easily found on the “Webinars” tab or at:
One word for the webinars being sponsored this winter is “timely”. On January 31 at 1:00 PM, Central Time, there will be a program called “Developing and Maintaining E-Reader Policies and Procedures for Libraries.” Libraries will be working hard to put these in place, and constantly updating them, even while debates on e-book and app issues continue.
On Thursday, February 2 at 1:00 PM, Central Time, OCLC will sponsor “Building Bridges #4: Your Library’s Future.” Martin Gomez, City Librarian at Los Angeles, will give practical advice about the continued success of public libraries in a rapidly changing environment.
On Thursday, February 9 at 1:00 PM, Central Time, “Cloud Computing 101,” will clarify what cloud computing is, what it offers libraries, and how libraries are using these services. Resources for futher exploration will be included.
The final webinar in February will be “Twitter for Job Seekers: Tips for Helping Your Library’s Job-seeking Patrons” This will be on February 23 at 1:00 PM, Central Time. So many librarians are trying to help job seekers, they will be glad to learn more about Twitter as a powerful tool to help job seekers and showcase library services.
