*Northwest Central invites you to check out some of the upcoming continuing
education webinars and events happening this August!
*FREE!** 08/09/13** Resource Sharing Detective Work: Find it and Get it
Using Free and Open Access
The digital word is rapidly changing our approach to resource sharing.
Institutional repositories, open access resources, and digitization
projects are quickly opening doors to previously inaccessible information.
 In this free 90 minute 2nd Friday Series session, Russell Palmer, resource
sharing and reference specialist at LYRASIS, will share resources, tips,
and tricks to help reference and resource sharing staff find and retrieve
scholarly articles, newspapers, archival records, maps and other materials
that are sometimes challenging to get into the hands of users.  After this
session, attendees will be able to: utilize digital resources more
effectively as they pursue challenging reference and resource sharing
requests; decrease the number of unfilled resource sharing requests; and
understand the scope of digital information available in institutional
repositories, open access resources, and digital collections.
FREE!* *08/13/13** YA Announcements: Falling Into
Fall is just around the corner, and the smell of new books is in the air.
Please join us as representatives from Bloomsbury Children’s Books, Disney
Book Group, Egmont, Harlequin Teen, and Macmillan Children’s Publishing
Group share their new teen titles for fall and beyond. Booklist’s Books for
Youth associate editor Ann Kelley moderates this free, hour-long webinar.
FREE!* *08/13/13** Geek the Library Information
Get a complete Geek the Library overview and your questions answered in a
live format. Our informational webinars are a simple way to learn about the
details before committing to participate in the program.
FREE!* *08/14/13** Library-Museum Partnerships: Oh, the places you’ll
Libraries and museums share common missions—to engage communities in
lifelong learning, cultural enrichment, civic conversations, information
resources, and gathering as neighbors. Sharing so many goals makes
libraries and museums excellent partners that together can more fully
support and engage their communities. Join in this interactive CSL in
Session to explore and discuss the many possibilities of how museums and
libraries can collaborate—and why they should. From programs for kids to
digitization projects, share your ideas and learn new ones from fellow
attendees from both libraries and museums in this lively online forum, and
come out with a list of first steps to take in creating or strengthening a
partnership with a library or museum in your community.

*08/15/13** Building Blocks for a Diverse Library
Today’s teens make up the most diverse generation in our history—are you
ready for them?  With challenges including parent complaints, contending
with user demand, and maintaining a nuanced and diverse collection, we know
that collection building can be a complicated and even daunting feat for
any young adult librarian. But what does it mean to have a "diverse"
collection, and what role does the community play in young adult collection
building? Join YALSA for a discussion on how to build a diverse young adult
collection. Presenter Chelsea Condren will provide a working definition of
the term diversity, strategies for understanding user demand and interest,
and ways to ensure a collection is diverse while still meeting the needs of
the population. Participants will receive a handout that outlines
strategies for collection building/management, selection and weeding of
diverse titles, as well as a list of recommended materials.
