Big Talk From Small Libraries Online Conference – Feb 28, 2012



The Nebraska Library Commission is providing a free one-day online conference aimed at small libraries on February 28th.  Check it out and drop in when you can!  This is held during Central Time – so think an hour earlier!  See the link below to register.

This free one-day online conference is aimed at librarians from small libraries; the smaller the better. Each of our eight speakers is from a small library or directly works with small libraries. Topics will range from technology (new tech and old tech) to programming to new roles for the library. Eight presenters means eight hourly slots and eight topics. Come for the programs on what you’re dealing with now or maybe try something new. Everyone is welcome to register and attend, regardless of how big or small their library is, but if your library serves a few thousand people, or a few hundred, this is the day for you. So far, our agenda is:

9:00 Helping Your Patrons E-Read, Karen Mier
10:00 Community Partnerships, Diane Althoff & Karla Bieber
11:00 The FFL Fabulous Laboratory: Developing a Read/Write Culture in Your Library, Lauren Smedley
Noon Combo School/Public Libraries, Lindsey Hansen & Linda Holmberg
1:00 Magic Tricks and Maintenance: Helping the Public Learn Technology, Jessamyn West
2:00 Working in the Cloud, Jezymnne Dene
3:00 Gaming and Game collection development, Diane Trinkle
4:00 TBA

All times given in Central Time

  1. Thanks for posting this. I just wanted to add the following:
    I am thrilled an honored to announce that our final speaker has been confirmed. Delivering our closing keynote will be Julie Hildebrand, Director of the Independence (KS) Public Library which was recently honored as Library Journal’s 2012 Best Small Library in America. Additional details of course will be posted as soon as they’re available but I just didn’t want to sit on this news any longer.
