There are lots of great CE opportunities coming up in late November. I’m guessing they’re all being scheduled before the holidays/crummy weather/annual winter blahs set in.
RLA-CE is very excited to sponsor Mobile Solutions for Libraries on November 10, from 9:30-noon at the Northbrook Public Library. We’re expecting a big crowd, so make sure you register early. The program is, of course, FREE! 🙂
WebJunction, ALA TechSource, and the ALA Office for Research & Statistics are co-sponsoring 2011 Public Library Funding & Technology Access Study: Results, Trends, and Resources on November 1st from 1-2pm. This webinar is FREE to register. 🙂
The second part of Dominican’s Supervisory Skills Series, How to Motivate Staff is November 2nd at the Matteson Public Library from 9am-4pm. This program is not free 😦 but does include lunch!
On November 4th from 9:30-noon, LACONI-RASS is sponsoring The Chicago Underground Library at the Oak Park Public Library. Nell Taylor and Emily Porter of The Chicago Underground Library will discuss the similarities and differences between standard public library services and those offered by the CUL. Not Free 😦
The State Library is hosting “Wow, That’s Cool! What is it?” on November 10th from 1-2pm. This webinar will feature the Library of Virginia’s tour of the state showing off all sorts of cool tech gadgets and devices. Not just for patrons, this tour focused on helping library staff keep current with developing trends. FREE! 🙂
Dominican is hosting Tapping Into the Positive Side of Conflict on November 17th from 9-noon. In this practical session, you will identify your normal response to conflict, explore ways to use your strengths, and create an individual plan for using the five steps for managing conflict. This program is not free 😦, but it did bring some Monty Python which is always a good thing.
Also on the 17th, LACONI is sponsoring Wired That Way for Customer Service. Yes, it’s a Circ program, but I’m sure they wouldn’t mind if we dropped in. Plus, it is being held at that copper-roofed marvel the Prospect Heights Library! Not Free 😦
