Regional Workshops

 

We’re coming to you!

The NC LIVE team and special guests will be visiting a library near you this fall and spring! Join us at an NC LIVE Regional Workshop to learn about NC LIVE, network with peers, and gain transferable skills to take back to your community. While much is similar to past years (still free, still includes lunch!), this year we’re offering two tracks for the day: the NC LIVE Training Track and the Leadership Development Track.

 

TrainingNC LIVE TRAINING TRACK

Whether you’re staffing a reference desk, teaching information literacy classes, promoting library resources, or managing electronic databases, it’s important to know the ins and outs of your NC LIVE resources to help your communities succeed! In the NC LIVE Training Track, you’ll get hands-on training with NC LIVE resources from the experts! The registration form will ask you to rank which resources/services you’d most like to learn about at the workshop, so each agenda is catered to that day’s attendees! We’ll explore content, navigate databases, and brainstorm ways to use them in your communities, and you’ll head back to your library with an official NC LIVE Training certificate and new wealth of NC LIVE knowledge!

 

LeadershipLEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT TRACK

Finding the time and funding to develop your leadership skills can be challenging. That’s why NC LIVE is offering a free Leadership Development regional workshop series this fall. Guest facilitators will share their knowledge on specific leadership competencies through active learning exercises that will give you the opportunity to experience and learn to navigate common leadership challenges. Some of the competencies we will cover include:

  • leading organizational change
  • managing conflict
  • finding talent
  • developing strategy
  • and navigating workplace politics.

Whether you are in a leadership position already, or aspire to be, consider registering for an upcoming NC LIVE regional workshop and earning an NC LIVE Leadership certificate!

TESTIMONIALS

"The presenters were very relaxed and approachable which created the feeling of a shared learning experience rather than a simple lecture designed to disseminate facts."

"Meeting NC LIVE staff and librarians on the various advisory councils makes me feel more comfortable about reaching out with feedback concerning future resources."

"I felt that the meeting was very productive. The subject-based handout was particularly helpful."

"Having the regional meetings was a great idea. Travel budgets are limited so it was nice to be able to take a day trip for professional development, refresh and meet the new NC LIVE staff! Please keep offering these regional meetings!!"
