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 November.

Content Creation at Your Library (Indiana State Library)

How Rude! The Price of Incivility in the Workplace (Colorado State Library)
We all want to come to work and be treated with kindness and respect. However, studies have found that 98% of us have experienced slights, insensitivities and rude behavior in our workplace. The effects of incivility can lead to a loss in staff creativity, deterioration in team spirit and may result in patrons turning away from the library. Come learn tactics staff can use to minimize the effects of rudeness on performance and well-being and strategies managers can use to keep their own behavior in check and to foster civility in others.
OF-BY-FOR ALL: Co-Creating Programs and Developing Community Partnerships to Serve People with Disabilities in Libraries (Infopeople)
It doesn’t matter if your library is small or large, public or academic, rural or urban—all libraries serve people with disabilities. However, people with disabilities experience barriers to equitable access to libraries and are not always visible, participatory members of their library communities. In this interactive webinar, you will learn how you can be an advocate for people with disabilities and break down barriers to library access.
Smart Planning for the Post-COVID Library (EveryLibrary)
The COVID pandemic altered both library operations and personal habits during the crisis and some of those changes will continue going forward. Many of the lessons learned and new approaches that were forced upon us help to inform new approaches to service and reinforce the need for adaptable plans and methodologies.
