Competency: Organizational Leadership
Sub-Category: Contributes effective strategies and decisions regarding library services and resources (Prepares for and responds to crises and unanticipated events)
As librarians, we are constantly juggling project and service planning along with our day-to-day activities. That’s why it’s so easy to be surprised by unexpected, difficult events like the death or major illness of a staff member, the failure of a major technology system, or damage to the building. At times like these, the entire staff must pull together to get through. The last thing you want is to be unprepared.
While administrators or managers may be more interested in this program, any library staff member can benefit from this interactive webinar.
- Explore major issues that our libraries have faced and could potentially face
- Learn to develop tools to fall back on in case of such emergencies
- Discuss the emotional impact on staff and self and how to cope
