The Pursuit of Happiness…Through Libraries
Thursday, March 19, 2015 ♦ 2 pm Eastern / 11 am Pacific ♦ 60 min
Registration: http://www.webjunction.org/events/webjunction/pursuit-of-happiness.html

"The public library is a center of public happiness first…" John Cotton Dana, 1896.
Research points to how we can increase happiness and a sense of well-being in ourselves and others. Using interactive activities, participants will discover methods to improve joy, shift workplace culture, and offer programs for the public on happiness. You will walk away with a smile and a plan.

An encore presentation of the highest rated session from this year’s conference, this webinar is hosted in collaboration with the Association for Rural and Small Libraries<http://arsl.info/>.

Presented by: Sharon Morris, Colorado State Library.

"How Do I Apply to College?" Helping Patrons Meet Their Higher Education Goals
Thursday, March 26, 2015 ♦ 1 pm Eastern / 10 am Pacific ♦ 60 min
Registration: http://www.webjunction.org/events/webjunction/how-do-i-apply-to-college.html

As information and education centers, libraries are an ideal place for patrons—teens and adults—to learn about higher education opportunities. What can you offer in response to patrons who are curious about college? If you or your staff feel flummoxed by college-related reference questions, this session will acquaint you with the different types of college-bound students, college-related resources to promote at your library, and ways to work with community partners on programs for each audience. Provide help for the many patrons who do not have access to pricey college prep programs and services. Learn how to initiate or enhance your reference services to help more people meet their higher education goals.

Presented by: Africa Hands, MA, MLIS, Academic Coordinator, University of Louisville
