Virtual Services on a Short Timeline with a Small Budget Workshop
A 90-minute workshop, Thursday, June 18, 2020, 2:30pm Eastern/1:30 Central/12:30 Mountain/11:30am Pacific

This is an unprecedented time for our libraries and communities. Many libraries have provided virtual services for years, but for some, these are now the only services patrons can access. 

This workshop will help you figure out what your library needs to get your staff and your patrons up to speed on virtual services. If you’re new to these services, you’ll learn to get started fast, and if you’re experienced, you’ll learn how you can expand and adjust to the current situation. 

By participating in this event, you will: 

  • Be able to take a digital inventory; to inventory the digital resources and services your library currently offers and determine how easy they are for patrons to find. 
  • Figure out what your patrons need when they can’t visit your library building. 
  • Understand several ways to share those library resources with patrons, using your website, social media, and other local resources. 
  • Learn how to assess what tools and skills does your staff need to be able to work from home. 
  • Learn ideas for setting up some things quickly so you can “get it done” with an eye toward future proofing your library. 

While completing your purchase, fill in the name and e-mail address of the participant who will sign in to the event by clicking the "Attendees" button to the right of the item in your cart. This individual will receive an e-mail from WebEx confirming registration before the event begins. Attendees should add messenger@webex.com to their approved email sender list, so they can ensure that they receive the automatic notifications.
