AT YOUR LEISURE – Pre-recorded webinars to view at your convenience

  • Grant Writing for Every Occasion (Wyoming SHRAB)
    Want to develop your grant proposal writing skills? Or are you just beginning to explore the world of landing grants? Grant writing is no secret– it’s a learned skill. This workshop will help you master the logic and preparation needed for success. Learn tips, tricks, and pitfalls of grant writing, plus where to find help. We’ll discuss the elements of a proposal and how to develop, prepare, and present a compelling case that will make funders sit up and take notice.

  • Active Shooter Procedures for Libraries (Infopeople)
    Have you thought about what to do in an active shooter situation? Have you identified the most vulnerable areas in your library? Do you know where to go for resources to create an active shooter procedure? Join North Dakota State Librarian Mary Soucie as she discusses what should be included in an active shooter procedure, including an emergency & disaster plan, communication plan and evacuation plan. Additionally she will cover how to respond (run, hide, fight), and what you need to be aware of to prepare for this situation. This webinar was presented on November 15, 2016. Visit: https://vimeo.com/191715398
  • Reconsideration Process – From Complaint to Conclusion (Future Ready Librarians)
    We’ve all heard about the recent attempts to remove books from school libraries. But what happens after a complaint is lodged? In this session, we’ll learn about both ends of the reconsideration process to understand how a school librarian and a board of education member respond to book challenges. https://all4ed.org/event/future-ready-librarians-webinar-reconsideration-process-from-complaint-to-conclusion/
  • Public and School Libraries: Creative Ways to Build Successful Partnerships (WebJunction)
    Public and school libraries are driven by a similar goal—to help community members gain new knowledge, skills, and confidence to pursue their lives fully. Unfortunately, these libraries often lack the resources to fulfill that goal. There is a powerful opportunity for public and school libraries to collaborate to overcome many of the resource gaps they encounter when seeking to meet community needs. Join this webinar to explore how public and school libraries can initiate collaborative relationships and the types of programming that can benefit from these partnerships. Learn how to market or publicize your services to teachers and school librarians, and identify the best times of year to communicate with local schools. https://www.webjunction.org/events/webjunction/public-and-school-libraries-partnerships.html

*Training opportunities are compiled and shared by the Wyoming State Library each month via WebJunction. See WebJunction for detailed abstracts. Note: some of these opportunities may not be free.
