Today we'll look at webinars:

Continuing George & Joan's Conversation

Mary Minow webinar this Thursday!

Be sure to tune in this Thursday at noon for Infopeople's next webinar, Writing a Library Behavior Code, with Mary Minow. It starts at noon and will last an hour.

This webinar will benefit participants by helping them draft legally enforceable behavior codes. It offers guidance on reasonable behavior rules, distinguished from restrictions on user's free speech rights. What type of notice must the library give its users about its behavior policies? When is an appeals process required, and what should it entail?

Archive of "Best Practices in Helping Job Seekers in the Library" webinar available

Attendance was great at today's Infopeople webinar on Best Practices in Helping Job Seekers in the Library. But if you missed the live event, you can listen to the archive and access the text chat transcript and other handouts here. Thanks to presenters Bernice Kao, Raye Oldham, and Megan Pittsley for a fascinating presentation!

If your library is doing exciting things for job seekers, let us know: we'd like to do a follow-up webinar in a few months!
