Spring Forward with TSLAC Webinars

2012 January 6

While Santa and the New Year’s Baby were busy making their rounds the past few weeks, our own TSLAC elves were happily working their magic to bring you an amazing batch of new spring Webinars!

We’re positively giddy about what we have in store in the coming months. And we’re so happy to be able to continue to bring this to you completely free of charge!

On the tech front we have:

  • 1/10  & 1/17 — a two-part Webinar series on understanding and sustaining broadband, brought to you by one of the best technical presenters around — Christine Peterson (need I say more?)
  • 2/9 — an in-depth look at a mobile app designed by one of Texas’ own — Dallas Public Library (note: registration will be available soon)
  • February and March — a shiny new round of our wildly popular “Tech Tools with Tine” series — 5 Webinars on 5 tech tools that we feel all librarians should know about. This time we’re looking at Dropbox (2/3), Goodreads and Shelfari (2/10), Picnik (2/17), Prezi (3/2), and YouTube (3/9).

In the children’s and youth programming arena we have three amazing Webinars planned brought to you by two of Texas’ most engaging youth specialists:

In the grants and fundraising realm we’re offering two can’t-miss events:

  • 1/24 — Paige Delaney (Director) and Kathy Bork (President of the Alpine Public Library Board) discuss the Alpine Public Library’s wildly successful capital campaign which they undertook in 2006 and which allowed them to open a new library building in December of 2011 — accomplished entirely without any loans!
  • 1/31 — Nan Carmack (Director of the Campbell County Public Library System in Virginia) brings her highly-regarded presentation on Outcome-Based Evaluation to Texas. Her goal is to teach attendees how to articulate results in a meaningful way to funders who want to know the difference their money makes in the lives of those served.

And for those involved with PR and Marketing efforts, we’re offering two practical, real-world Webinars with the woman who wrote the book on library marketing (literally), Kathy Dempsey, author of The Accidental Library Marketer.

And last but most certainly not least, we’re beyond excited to bring you a thought-provoking Webinar with Eli Neiburger:

  • 2/16 — Libraries as Content Collaborators — join Library Journal Mover and Shaker Eli Neiburger as he expands upon his  compelling argument that one way for libraries to remain relevant in this current technological era is to become producers of and/or collaborators on their own content. Anyone interested in the future role of libraries in our society (and if you work in or with libraries, this should mean you) should make it a point to attend this very special live event.  (Registration is not yet available for this Webinar but will be linked from our Upcoming Webinars page very soon.)
