LSSC Elective Competencies: Access Services

Dates: July 5 – August 15

A six week online course on access services, designed to meet the elective requirement for the Library Support Staff Certification program. The basic functions of access services include circulating materials, maintaining physical collections, and assisting library users with diverse needs.

Accessibility from Legal Compliance to Disability Justice

Dates: July 5 – August 1

How do we make our libraries more accessible for people with disabilities? The Americans with Disabilities Act was passed in 1990, but barriers still exist for both patrons and staff with disabilities. Some activists and scholars have suggested that we need a more radical approach than the rights-based framework of legal compliance, an approach called disability justice. In this course you will learn different frameworks for understanding disability and achieving accessibility, and practice identifying these frameworks in your own work. You will think critically about your own approach to accessibility and make concrete changes to a project or area of work to increase access for marginalized individuals including those with disabilities.

Dewey Decimal Classification

Dates: July 5 – August 1

This course focuses on learning the structure and notational system of the Dewey Decimal Classification system, 23rd edition, using a combination of print (when available) and WebDewey. The Introduction to DDC functions as a mini-textbook and will be used as the primary source of number building techniques.

Exploring STEAM Concepts Through Storytimes

Dates: July 5 – August 1

While the information and activities in this training can be used to offer separate STEAM programs, the approach in this course is that these concepts are on-going in all we do, including our storytimes. By becoming aware of these connections using books and other activities, we also help storytime participants, children and adults, understand and build on these concepts throughout the day.

Gaming in Libraries

Dates: July 5 – August 1

In this course the instructors will discuss how they have each created gaming programs at their own libraries. Attendees will be encouraged to consider their own community needs when creating a gaming program.

Implementing and Managing Organizational Change

Dates: July 5 – August 1

This course will help you navigate the myriad of change models that exist while identifying strategies to effectuate transformational change-one which is self-sustaining, occurs system-wide, and involves both internal and external stakeholders. You will work on identifying your organization’s readiness for change as well as specific strategies to implement and assess how your organization has evolved.
