Digital Literacy (Public Services - 000)

Reference (Public Services - 000)

Basic Reference Skills for Non-Reference Librarians (ALA)

I loved this course! I learned a lot and the teacher gave great feedback as well as opened up ethical discussions about librarianship.

Communication (Patron Assistance - 100)

Effective Workplace Communication Skills for New(er) Supervisors & Managers (LibraryWorks)

This webinar was good.  Reinforced what I knew, threw out a couple of new ideas.  I'd recommend it for any supervisor, if only for the reminders.  Speaker was lively, engaged and it was only an hour - easy to carve out of the day.

 

Diversity (Public Services - 300)

3D Printing/Makerspace Devices (Technology - 600)

Customer Service (Public Services - 600)

Dealing with Angry Library Patron Behaviors (LibraryWorks)

I finally had a chance to watch the recording of this webinar.  I did not like it.  The presenter was from an academic library and very much in the "patrons are bad" school.  He spent a lot of time talking about problem patrons.  And not enough time discussing strategies to diffuse situations.
