Turning Outward to Lead Change in Your Community: Turn Quiz Other Moscone Convention Center
Esplanade 301 & 303
Description :

All communities have challenges. Librarians are uniquely positioned to help conquer them—given the right tools. Through four hands-on sessions, Harwood Institute coaches will show you how to leverage your trusted position in the community you serve to engage people on issues that matter to them. Each stand-alone session focuses on a single tool; taken together, they become a powerful framework for engaging community and leading change. Session 2 will introduce librarians to the "Turn Quiz" tool, enabling them to assess the focus of their efforts in the community as they shift their orientation from internal to external. To access the tools that will be used in this session, please visit: http://www.ala.org/transforminglibraries/libraries-transforming-communit....

Saturday Ignite Session: Here It Is, Your Moment of Zen Other Moscone Convention Center
130 (N)
Description :

Stale book displays could learn a thing or two from the Daily Show. By using short messages that are funny, inspired by pop culture, and ever-so-slightly irreverent, displays can be transformed from static fixtures to conversation starters that draw in users and demonstrate that 'those stuffy librarians' have a sense of humor.

Saturday Ignite Session: Let the Wild Rumpus Start: Adventures Beyond the Library Echo Chamber Other Moscone Convention Center
130 (N)
Description :

What do Burning Man, SXSW Interactive, and airplanes have to do with libraries? On the surface nothing obvious, but when we let our librar* flag wave loud and proud we discover these are ripe spaces to engage with communities unaccustomed to the wonders of contemporary libraries. Sharing eclectic professional development opportunities with librarian comrades is exhilarating and a crucial action to keep this profession from expiring of stale nostalgia and reluctance to adaptive change. This is an invitation to be an exploratory librarian and embark on new adventures beyond the library silos together!
