Creating Inclusive Environments with Paula Gallant
Time: 9 a.m.-12 noon
Location: Rodd Charlottetown
Cost: $65
Libraries are places of both work and community. Their success is
dependent upon the unique contribution of each staff member. Library
leaders and managers have the opportunity to build inclusive workplaces
for their employees and to engage with diverse staff teams and community
members to create community spaces that are “everybody’s place” (Ursula
K. LeGuin, author). A high level of self-awareness and specific
practices are critical to leading inclusive teams, where individuals
feel a sense of belonging that leads to greater productivity and
engagement and to the ability to engage diverse individuals and groups
in the community they serve. In this half-day course, you will be
encouraged to examine the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary to
create positive, vibrant, and inclusive workplaces and libraries. You
will develop a greater awareness of diversity and inclusion and how it
manifests in life and work. You will take away strategies and approaches
to foster inclusive environments for your staff and to support their
efforts to create inclusive spaces for your community.
 
Data Visualization Techniques and Tools for Academic Libraries with
Melissa Belvadi and Alison Ambi
Time: 1-4 p.m.
Location: Robertson Library, UPEI
Cost: $40
From ILSs and LMSs to COUNTER reports from online content providers to
log files from reference tracking systems, librarians have more data
than ever to help understand patron needs and guide collection choices.
But how to present all that data in ways that are meaningful to your
stakeholders and decision makers? How to tell the story that your
library needs to tell?
 
This half-day workshop will introduce you to basic techniques and
theory on data visualization, and take you through some basic
spreadsheet tools and then more advanced free and commercial products to
convert your log files, usage reports and collections data sets into
useful presentations and narratives for decision-makers. The workshop
will be hands-on, and participants will be encouraged to
bring actual reports and data files from their systems to work with.
Computers will be provided or you can bring your own Windows or MacOS
platform device. Tablets are not recommended.
