Diversity has been a major issue in pop culture lately. The demand to include traditionally marginalized voices in comics, movies, TV, and gaming has led to an explosion of material in the past few years. Join two fellow librarians (who also happen to be geeks) as they explore this issue and help you navigate all the content available with collection development recommendations that can work in your local library.

Change Management: Anything Can Happen in the Zone – 1 LEU


image of a butterflyAll libraries face catalysts for change, and rather than being afraid of change, with effective consideration of the personal aspects felt by staff or patrons, libraries can change many things at the same time. Butler University Libraries had already made progressive changes in public services areas, but Technical Services workflows and organization remained unchanged and bound to legacy practices from decades past. For us, the best catalyst for change was a system migration to a cloud-based library management system. This system migration was tied to organizational restructuring, building rearrangement, and a new strategic plan, each of which intertwined with the details of the migration project and was underpinned by thoughtful analysis of how to help employees through change. Research on technical services departments is discussed in light of how roles change through the streamlined workflows available in a new ILS, and how those changes can have a domino effect, creating space or opportunity to shift responsibilities or spaces in ways long awaited or newly identified. Join us to learn how changes can help refocus a library’s efforts to fulfill what can be an evolving mission, while retaining core strengths and values. This webinar, while delivered by an academic librarian, will also be useful to public libraries wanting to work through big changes.
