Researching Chinese-Canadian Ancestry
 with  Janet Tomkins -  1 hour AUDIO CONFERENCE

Although the Chinese community has a long history in Canada, genealogical resources and services in libraries tend to focus on those of British and European ancestry. The federal government's recent apology for the infamous head tax has heightened interest among Chinese-Canadians in exploring their roots. While Chinese-Canadians face considerable obstacles in genealogical research, historical discrimination also resulted in the creation of unique records of genealogical value. Here are the challenges and opportunities available to Chinese-Canadians researching their roots.

 Liaison Librarianship -- pushing beyond 'traditional' roles
 with  Stuart David von Wolff - 1 hour AUDIO CONFERENCE

Liaison librarianship has traditionally focused mainly on either specific collections and topics, or particular academic programmes and disciplines. This presentation, while in no way detracting from these past approaches, builds upon this foundation in advocating the benefits of 'thinking outside the box' when it comes to perceptions of liaison functions.

Monday, May 14th, 2-3pm ET (11am-12pm, PT)
The Board Chair and the CEO:  Shared Leadership for Board Development
Part of the EFFECTIVE BOARDS 2007, no. 1 - an extraordinary new series for public library trustees
Effective Governance and the High Performance Board
with  Ken Haycock   - 1 hour AUDIO CONFERENCE

Most trustees realize they need training but many only receive a tour and a binder from the CEO and a hearty "welcome aboard" from the Chair.

Powerful, effective library boards are developed over time and a longer term plan for development makes good sense. What do trustees need to know? What are their roles? What are the topics? What are the priorities?

If you truly want a powerful board, you must learn how to develop powerful and knowledgeable trustees. Here is a vision of planning between the Chair of the Board and the CEO that challenges our everyday practice.

Tuesday, May 15th, 3-4pm ET (12-1pm, PT)

Learning to Learn -- the Ultimate Outcome for All Students!
with  Ann Marlow Riedling - 1hour Audio Conference

Academic institutions from K-12 to college and university all want their graduates to be independent life-long learners -- motivated to learn, and equipped with the 21st century skills and knowledge to do so independently.

This session will go well beyond just knowing how to "use" new and emerging technologies, and how to "surf" the Internet: it will move from physical access skills to mastering the understanding and assimilation of intellectual access skills that result in thoughtful, reflective learners.

As an educator, you assume the awesome responsibility of helping your students to master essential information literacy skills to succeed in the high-speed environment in which we live. This session will outline a simple, step-by-step guide to move through the research process proficiently.


Tuesday, May 22nd 3-4pm ET (12-1pm, PT)
 Live On-line Events: How Libraries Are Using Web Conferencing Services
 with  Tom Peters- 1hour WEB Conference

Web conferencing systems are being used by libraries and library-related organizations to produce and distribute a wide-variety of live on-line events, including public events (lectures, book discussions, etc.), professional development programs, workshops, and on-line meetings. Live on-line events can serve as a substitute for live in-person events, telephone conference calls, and interminable e-mail threaded discussions. Tom Peters will discuss the advantages, challenges, current realities, and potential future directions for the use of Web conferencing systems by libraries. He will explain the main features of Web conferencing systems, such as voice-over-IP, text chatting, co-browsing, whiteboarding, application sharing, and video-over-IP. He also will explore the value of recording, archiving, and podcasting live on-line events. The various Web conferencing systems and collaborative available to libraries, ranging from feature-rich and expensive systems to open source software, will be summarized.

Community Development and the Role of the Board
with  Ken Haycock   - 1 hour AUDIO CONFERENCE

What business is your library in? The reading business? The information business? Or is it in the business of building your community, and making it a better place to work in, to live in, and to raise a family in?

Just how do libraries contribute to community development? Do you contribute to literacy? To life-long learning?

Does the library have assets that contribute to community-building? How do you get started? Who are the significant players, and how do you connect with them?

This session will provoke your thinking and challenge you to "think big" - to "think beyond your traditional ways of doing business".

Join Ken -- he has the knowledge and experience to start the conversations for Library Boards, Library Managers and Municipal Politicians.

Training Library Staff And Volunteers to Provide Extraordinary Customer Service
 with  Julie Todaro - 1hour AUDIO Conference

Establishing and maintaining the best possible customer service is essential for every library and for all library staff members. Managers must integrate a customer service focus and training into all relevant staff and volunteer interactions including job interviews, orientation, employee review, and training. The best customer service plans have standards for what employees should know on day one, after the first week, and after the first month. The best training techniques for teaching customer service includes role-playing suggestions and scripts for specific and difficult scenarios, as well as guidelines for establishing policies and a glossary. All policies, procedures and processes should include model forms such as critical incident report, customer feedback, postcard survey, and "lock-box" survey.

Thursday, May 31st 4-5pm ET (1-2pm, PT)
 It's a Web 2.0 World! How Will This Impact Our School Library Program?
 with  Anita Brooks-Kirkland - 1hour AUDIO Conference

Not only is Web 2.0 transforming the world of information, it is becoming the on-line environment of comfort for our students. We are at a critical crossroad in school libraries, where we either choose to embrace and lead in the new world of information, or we choose to ignore it, not only missing out on the great opportunities it offers for student success, but in the process increasing students' life/school disconnect.

What are we going to do about it?

As a starting place, we need to learn more about the emerging environment and think about its impact on our libraries and programs. How do we need to re-think our Web site evaluation tools for an interactive Web environment populated by blogs and wikis? How can we harness the powers of the social Web to enhance students' learning experiences? How can we make the school library the hub of student success in a Web 2.0 world? Big questions, with both thought provoking and practical answers.

This session will look at the challenges and opportunities offered by the new world of information. Participants will then have plenty of "think time" over the summer to consider what steps to take to begin or continue the necessary evolution.
