Continuing Education and Events: 01/25 - Librarians, Get What You Want!

This guide contains current and upcoming events of interest to librarians, archivist, library staff, and others in Capital District Region.

Librarians, Get What You Want! Lessons of Influence from the Business World.

Join us at CDLC for this webinar. It is sponsored by the Medical Library Association, but is open to all. Registrants will also get access to the recording.

Getting your message heard by your library’s leaders is essential for your personal success and for the health and growth of your library. Few financial and business decision-makers recognize the real value of their libraries or speak “library.” Many librarians lack the skills to communicate to leaders in ways they understand. “Librarians, Get What You Want!,” led by a librarian and a business leader, shows you how to combine librarian knowledge with proven business techniques to create influence with the decision-makers in your institution. You will engage in case examples and brainstorm strategies for communicating your value to your bosses. This webinar will benefit any librarian who seeks greater influence in their organization.

CDLC is purchasing a site license for the webinar and is subsidizing this event, so the webinar is free for people who register through and attend at CDLC.
