In addition to the live webinars in our training calendar, each month we try to pick some videos out there that you can watch “At Your Leisure.” These on-demand offerings caught our attention for October:
One Book Wyoming 2019: Ernest Hemingway and Travel (Wyoming State Library)
Hear presenter Charles Fournier discuss the theme of Travel in Ernest Hemingway’s life and work. This is a video discussion for One Book Wyoming 2019.
Networking: A Survival Guide for Introverts (North Dakota State Library)
Networking… Does that word make you cringe or feel overwhelmed and exhausted? People who are introverted can have a really hard time when it comes to networking at conferences and other events that require them to be around and talk with other people. This webinar will include strategies on how to make the most out of networking, while also ensuring you don’t get burned out in the process.
Serendipity, Tactility, and Community Library Research as a Practice of Wonder (Choice)
Getting students into academic libraries can be a challenge. Asking them to engage deeply with the materials they might find there once they arrive can be equally challenging. Drawing on her background in – and passion for – archival research, libraries, and teaching, Sonja Boon considers some similarities between archival research and library research, and suggests possible entry points for cultivating practices of wonder. She focused in particular on three aspects of archival research that have been central to her own teaching and research practice: serendipity, tactility, and community.
