The Heart of Librarianship: Finding Balance in Challenging Times

What does the Heart of Librarianship mean within a constantly changing profession?

How do we plan for obstacles, new developments, and emerging opportunities in the field, even in the most challenging times? What factors may be preventing your library from ramping up community engagement and user-focused services? It all comes down to flexible librarianship and using new trends to help move your library into the future. Join Michael as he teaches:

  • The importance of “soft skills” meaning empathy, curiosity, etc., in your library
  • New ways of encouraging a culture of learning for library staff and users
  • How new and current trends can enhance your library

Join Michael Stephens as he discusses how to harvest the “heart of librarianship” when faced with new challenges and trends in your library.
