After Teen Services: Library Programming and Outreach for the New Adult

TBLC logo

According to the Pew Research Center over 50% of people between the ages of 16 and 29 visit a bookmobile or library each year. However, libraries often omit this new adult population from dedicated programming and outreach.

During this two-hour session, we will identify services and programming initiatives created with the new adult’s needs and interests in mind, comparing such programs to separate teen and adult initiatives.   We will also design outreach plans directed to new adults in public and academic libraries.

Learning Objectives:

  • Define New Adult
  • Compare the needs of the new adult population with teens and adults
  • Identify programs for the new adult population
  • Design outreach plans to the new adult population

RDA Cataloging ~ Construction and Use of Relationships

TBLC logo

RDA provides methods to explicitly document types of relationships between the manifestation being described and the access points of agents responsible for the creation of or contribution to the work and/or expression embodied in the manifestation. RDA also allows for structured relationships between the work, expression, manifestation, and/or item and other works, expressions, manifestations, and items. These relationships are fundamental to the entity- relationship model put forth in the IFLA-LRM (International Federation of Library Associations & Institutions-Library Reference Model) theoretical model.

This workshop provides instructions on identifying and constructing access points for works, expressions, manifestations, and items and the application of relationship designators to various authorized access points using the MARC 21 Format for Bibliographic Data (MFBD). Can be paired with Moving Images and Video Games (or any of the other workshops) for a more comprehensive treatment.

Learning Outcomes
Participants will be able to apply the RDA instructions for the construction of general access points for works, expressions, manifestations, and items; for the application of relationship designators to the access points; and for the methods to encode these relationships in the MFBD. Participants will be introduced to the concept of aggregates.

Presenter: Bobby Bothmann is a professor at Minnesota State University, Mankato where he serves as the catalog and metadata librarian. Bobby catalogs analog and digital resources of all kinds, including books, serials, moving images, objects, cartographic resources, musical and spoken word audio recordings, and music in between many meetings. He is a member of the editorial board for Cataloging & Classification Quarterly and an active member of OLAC (OnLine Audiovisual Catalogers) where he has served in various leadership roles including treasurer and president. He holds an MLIS from the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee and an MS in Geography and English Technical Communication from MSU Mankato. Bobby moonlights as an adjunct instructor for the School of Information Science at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign where he teaches cataloging and classification courses and tries to covert one student per semester to the cataloging side of the Force.

Tools for Tense Situations: Reducing Conflicts With Patrons As Libraries Return to the New Normal

TBLC logo

Steve is a leading national expert on library service, safety, and security. He has written 24 books on business, HR, leadership, security, and criminal justice topics. Steve has taught library training programs, both live and online, since 2000.  

As libraries re-open their doors to provide service to patrons, we’re all facing uncertainty, apprehension, and stress. This 90-minute webinar session will provide library directors, managers, supervisors, and full and part-time employees with tools to recognize and resolve conflicts between arriving patrons. Getting along in our new post-Pandemic, post-protests world will require patience, empathy, and understanding other points of view without judgment. Library employees and the people we serve will have strong feelings about the current political and economic climate. It’s easy to let emotions get in the way of providing good service.

Here are the topics this 90-minute webinar will cover:

  • What are the challenges we face as we return from a Work From Home status to back to working in and around our library buildings?
  • What safety and security challenges do we face in the wake of more national and local protests in our parks, public spaces, and government buildings?
  • How can managers and supervisors monitor the work culture for conflict, communication, and morale issues?
  • Can supervisors use a step-by-step conflict resolution tool to use to help two disagreeing employees to get along?
  • How to respectfully request that patrons and other library visitors (vendors, delivery, maintenance, janitorial providers) follow Covid-19 safety protocols
  • How do we agree to disagree and have patience and empathy for our patrons or co-workers who have strong feelings about national issues that differ from ours?
  • What safety and security protocols do we need to follow, coming and going and while working in publicly-accessed buildings?
  • How about a little personal and professional stress management?
  • What does the future hold for library employees and what new ways can we provide service to patrons?
