FUTURE TECH TRENDS IN LIBRARIES

 


Brian Pichman

 


Thursday, March 7  | 1:00-2:00PM

 


 

  

Over the last few years, we’ve seen technology evolve in new and exciting ways. Join Brian Pichman of the Evolve Project as he highlights this year’s biggest technology trends and what those trends mean for libraries. What changes are we expecting to see for 2019, what will be a fad, and what will the hot tech everyone is talking about. From drones to virtual reality, to creating and innovating, and crazy new inventions - you’ll be left with lots of great ideas, how to stay informed, and how to prepare for what’s ahead.

CREATING VIDEO GAMES IN THE LIBRARY

 


Kimberly Starkey

 


Thursday, March 14  | 12:00-12:30PM  

 


 

  

Creating video games can be an excellent way for librarians to connect with patrons and help them build digital skills. While it requires hard work and dedication, it’s also a skill that anyone can learn. This Bright Young Minds session will help library staff explore the basics in a few game-building platforms.

HOW TO FREE (GOVERNMENT) INFORMATION

 


Jelena Stankovic, Daniel Gouthro & Marisa Maharaj

 


Tuesday, March 19  | 12:00-1:00PM

 


 

  

From reporters to engineers to real estate lawyers to academics, a large number of people benefit from or could benefit from Freedom of Information (FOI) requests. As librarians who have experience working in FOI, the presenters of this webinar hope to help other librarians and information professionals support their library users during the sometimes confusing process of submitting an FOI request.

BIBLIOTHERAPY AND ITS POTENTIAL IN PUBLIC LIBRARIES

 


Brandon Kidd

 


Thursday, March 21  | 2:00-3:00PM  

 


 

  

Bibliotherapy is a therapy modality that involves storytelling or reading with the purpose of healing. This webinar will explore Bibliotherapy: what it is, who is using it, how it is developing, its potential and relevance to public librarianship in Canada (with a focus on youth services), what it might look like in practice, and what tools/support might be needed to stimulate and bolster its practice in public libraries.

GOOGLE FORMS FOR LIBRARIANS

 


Allison Hall

 


Tuesday, March 26  | 1:00-2:00PM  

 


 

  

The life of a librarian can often be overwhelming. It’s imperative to stay organized and Google forms can help. With Google forms, you can collect data, organize requests, provide instant feedback and so much more. All of the information can be stored in one place and is accessible from anywhere with an internet connection. This session will take you through the ins and outs of Google forms and how to integrate them into your library program.

LIBRARIES AS SOCIAL INFRASTRUCTURE TO BUILD CONNECTION

 


Trish Weigel-Green & Parisa Kohbodi

 


Thursday, March 28  | 12:00-1:00PM

 


 

  

The library's fundamental mission is to overcome disconnectedness. We recognize that the first step towards building social connection is to see and be seen. This session will share two transformative designs for the Conestoga college library that strengthen the library’s function as a place of connection and addresses the community’s diverse needs. The session will explore how speculative design can be used to identify different forms of disconnectedness and what parallels we can make to imagine alternative solutions to building inclusive library spaces.
