NOTSL Spring Meeting

NOTSL will hold its Spring Meeting on Thursday, May 23, 2019, at Cuyahoga County Public Library’s Parma-Snow Branch Auditorium, 2121 Snow Road in Parma, Ohio.

Kyle Banerjee, Oregon Health and Science University, will connect current data migration issues to our shared past. Bring your ideas and questions to discuss how mere mortals can migrate complex systems to build the services of the future. Sarah Weeks from Oberlin College will discuss data management best practices to allow the ILS to best fulfill its dual purpose of connecting users to information and helping library staff make data-driven decisions. There will also be a panel discussion where Anna Hood (Kent Free Library), Leslie A. Engelson (Murray State University) and Roman Panchyshyn (Kent State University) will share experiences and answer questions regarding data migration and maintenance.

Registration is now open for Can a Catalog Spark Joy? Catalog Maintenance for Management and Migration.  All are welcome; membership is conferred on all attendees.

Day for Circulation Staff

It's All About Myers-Briggs and Working as a Team
The morning and part of the afternoon will focus on Myers-Briggs and the different types and how they communicate.
We will then hone our skills even more by looking at one of the most significant and important elements of communication, namely nonverbal communication. We will learn about how essential it is to be aware of our nonverbal cues, and how can we learn to read the cues of others, both our colleagues and our patrons, in order to understand them more effectively. 

Learning Objectives:
  • Explore where body language comes from, why it is important and how it affects us and others
  • Discover ways to utilize nonverbal cues to communicate your message clearly in context to a variety of scenarios circ staff may encounter
Presenter:  Holly Klingler, Research and Innovation Coordinator, NEO-RLS
