Monday, Jan. 8th, 6-week on-line course
Basics of Web Site Management
with David King

Web site management can be a daunting task, especially for busy, short-staffed libraries. This course will help library Web managers and Web teams get a handle on what's involved in Web site management.

This six week program will cover the basics of managing, designing, and improving a library Web site. Topics will include Web site management structure, software used in maintaining Web sites, basic design and content tips, and emerging Web site trends.

Tuesday, Jan. 9th, 1-2pm ET (10-11am PT) - part of the TECH TUESDAYS:  TALKING WITH TECHIES SERIES
State of the Art: Federated Searching
with Jeff Wisniewski and Frank Cervone  - 1 hour WEBCAST

Federated searching tools are being implemented by libraries of all types, but the issues related to implementation are complex. In this tech talk, you'll learn about the best practices of libraries implementing federated searching as well as recent research on how federated search interfaces can be made more usable. Find out what works and what doesn't in relationship to placement of federated search boxes, display of search results, and design decisions in creating topical groups.

FRENCH SESSION - mercredi, 10 janvier 15h HNE (12h HNP)
Les habiletés de leadership et leur expression dans les milieux d'information
 avec  France Bouthillier   -  Une heure  Audio-conférence

Acquérir des habiletés de leadership est un défi particulier pour les spécialistes de l'information qui ont souvent peu d'occasions pour les développer. Ces habiletés sont essentielles non seulement pour les gestionnaires en poste mais également pour tous ceux qui doivent gérer des ressources humaines, financières et autres afin de réaliser des objectifs et des projets. Prendre le leadership s'impose pour faire avancer son dossier, son mandat et sa cause dans un contexte de concurrence croissante et de ressources limitées.

Le but de cet atelier est d'examiner des exemples d'individus qui ont su mener à terme des projets et d'en ressortir les caractéristiques principales. Car si le leadership est important pour tous, il existe différents styles de leadership et diverses compétences à développer. Puisqu'il n'y a pas de recette unique pour devenir un bon leader, en examinant plusieurs cas, les participants pourront tirer des leçons à appliquer éventuellement dans leur milieu respectif.

Thursday, Jan. 11th, 3-4pm ET (12-1pm, PT)
Wikis in Teaching and Learning
with  Doug Achterman - 1 hour WEBCAST

Wiki technology has great potential for elementary and secondary classrooms to engage in collaborative online knowledge creation. Building wikis allows groups of people to create documents, project plans, undertake collaborative analysis, and build data sets and then draw major conclusions, make decisions, or note patterns and trends. Building on David Loertscher's session in December on Super Teaching: 15 Think! Models, Doug will demonstrate how wikis are created and used in teaching and learning.


Monday, Jan. 15th, 6-week On-line Course
 Supervisory Skills for Library Staff
with  Cheryl Stenström

For first-time supervisors and staff new to the library workplace, supervising and leading can be a daunting task. In addition to working with customers, supervisors need to deal with administration, staff motivation and performance management. Based on the hugely popular Supervisory Skills for Library Staff course in BC's Ministry of Education's Community Library Training Program, this six week online course is a mix of practical exercises and management theory and will give anyone new to libraries or those needing a refresher a chance to strengthen their skills as a team leader.

Wednesday, Jan. 17th, 6-7pm ET (3-4pm, PT) Part of the EFFECTIVE BOARD GOVERNANCE Series
 Annual Reports: How to Do Them Right!
with  Ken Haycock

The attorneys-general have examined public board reports and found them lacking in basic required information. Does your Board measure up? Are you meeting your legal and public responsibilities for accountability? Or are you simply issuing a public relations, feel-good, last minute document?

Monday, Jan. 22nd, 6-week On-line Course
Consumer Health and Medical Resources on the Web
with  Susan Murray

A 2004 Canadian Internet Project survey of 3,000 Canadians found that:
    * 59 minutes per week was spent reading or searching for medical information
    * 54.4% of respondents searched for health information
While the Internet is the preferred source for health-related questions, search engines don't necessarily provide the best links to quality health resources on the Web. This course reviews the top tools to help you quickly find consumer health and medical electronic resources on the Web. Provides an introduction to each topic area with annotated, extensive examples of the best sites.

Tuesday, Jan. 23rd, 3-4pm ET (12-1pm, PT)

 Library Services to Persons with Disabilities
with   Cheryl Stenström

At any given time in our libraries, more than one in ten customers has a disability and the statistic rises to almost one in two for those aged sixty-five and over. Some disabilities are obvious -- most are invisible by library staff. While understanding the characteristics of disabilities is important, developing the attitudes, skills and awareness necessary to serve individuals with disabilities is even more critical. This six week online course is for anyone who would like to ensure that all their customers receive high-quality service and that every one of their interactions is enjoyable.
