FHSLA/TBLC ~ Literacy from A to T: Accessing and Utilizing Technology to Manage Your Health

TBLC logo

October is Health Literacy Month. Come join us for a webinar demonstrating ways you can support your patrons in utilizing technology to manage their health!

Libraries are integral in connecting community members with technology. They provide computers, lend wifi hotspots, and offer training sessions for developing technological skills. Library patrons, especially this past year have been asked by their health care providers to use patient portals, video calls with their doctors, and health tracking apps and devices to manage their health. To navigate these tools, patrons naturally come to their trusted community library seeking assistance. For libraries, this identifies the need for reliable resources to aid in bridging the gap between health and tech literacy.

 

During this webinar, we will explore:

  • health literacybasics,
  • how health and tech literacy impact library patrons,
  • how to help patrons of all health literacy levels,
  • examples ofhealth tech literacy programs, resources, and services.

Presenter: Margaret Ansell, MLIS, AHIP-S

Are you responsible for creating and/or posting graphics or photos online? Are your photos
stretched or pixelated? Are graphics optimized specifically for specific social media channels?

Are website images inadvertently sucking up your patron’s (expensive) mobile bandwidth?
Does your library follow recommended best practices,  to get the most attention for your images?

Find Your Bliss @ Work ~ Really

TBLC logo

Although our work can bring us great joy, the workplace can also present a few challenges – differing personalities, friction, work overload, patron demands, negativity – you get the picture!

Add to that the strain of a pandemic, work-from-home situations, and changing priorities, and it’s no wonder we have lost our bliss. And even if a permanent state of “bliss” is not logical for most of us, finding joy is what we all want to experience in our workplace.

In this fun and interactive 90-minute session, we’re going to help you understand what’s really keeping us from finding our bliss – and it’s not always what we think! We’ll also discuss some simple steps to help you leave your workday at work – particularly if it’s been, ahem, a little less than blissful!

First Impressions Matter: How to Win Friends in Admissions and Influence Prospective Students

When students first “meet” your library, their impression is likely formed during an Admissions-led tour of campus. Have you ever been surprised or dismayed by something a tour guide said? Have you wanted to revise their script? This lively webinar will highlight Admissions tours as a valuable marketing opportunity that librarians should evaluate and influence. Drawing on examples of Library-Admissions collaboration at two institutions—a large public research university and a state college—this webinar will inspire and prepare you to partner with your institution’s Admissions department to improve library information for prospective students and families.

FHSLA/TBLC ~ Neonatal Intensive Care: The NICU Experience

TBLC logo

Expecting and welcoming a new life into the world is an exciting time. Planning for and celebrating this new baby, or babies, should be the focus of all parents-to-be. But for parents and families that learn their newborn(s) need intensive care, starting life in a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) is unimaginable. 

Newborn babies are admitted to a NICU because of health concerns, preterm delivery, and/or complications that occur during labor and delivery. Within a NICU, teams of experts provide 24-7-365 care for each patient. For parents and caregivers, whether they have previous knowledge about health care or not, this can be an alarming, intimidating, and overwhelming experience. 

Through this session, we will introduce reliable resources available to parents, caregivers, family members, and friends that can assist them with navigating their NICU journey.
