SOCIAL MEDIA BOOTCAMP: NOVICE TO NINJA

As a marketer of arts and culture, you have to know how to learn, adapt, and tackle this thing called Social Media. It has affected how we live and work, expanded our possibilities, and made our jobs more exciting than ever before. But with that excitement comes challenges, and questions; from “What’s a “hashtag” and when do I use it?” to “How do I leverage social media analytics to inform decisions about how we price and deliver tickets?”. But don’t worry because we’ve got you covered. This social media bootcamp is guaranteed to set you on the path to getting your social media chops up to snuff and enhance what you already know. Through discussion, interactive and practical exercises, and case studies, this one day training program promises to take all the intimidation out of the world of social media and show you that no matter if you are a novice or a ninja, social media can be one of the most effective ways to connect with your audiences, build your brand, and grow your revenues. It will feature:

Three Levels: Offering Novice, Intermediate, and Advanced classes, the Social Media Bootcamp is designed to meet you where you are in your career. The content offered in each level will build upon the concepts and augment the skills learned from the previous level.
The necessary skills for enhancing your social media efforts with limited resources.
The opportunity to build a new media strategy specific to your organization.

The Social Media Bootcamp is for marketers who come from organizations of all budget sizes and artistic disciplines. The Bootcamp will benefit Novice, Intermediate, and Advanced marketers — and while it is recommended that you attend the entirety of the Bootcamp, it is not mandatory.

WNYLRC Workshop: Eco-Literacy Conquers Illiteracy: A Librarian-Environmental Educator Collaboration
Date:
Monday, April 17, 2017
9:00 am to 11:30 am
Description:

This program focuses on Richard Louv’s book, Last Child in the Woods: Saving Our Children from Nature Deficit Disorder, describing creative partnerships in formal public and private K?12 schools and in informal settings, such as nature centers, museums, zoos, private and public camps, and youth programs. (**everyone who registers for this workshop will receive a free copy of the book!!)

It is an opportunity to discover effective learning strategies using nature?themed books, nature journaling, and a variety of outdoor themes for stimulating expressive communication in children that simultaneously develop literacy skills (“Read the Book!”) and witnessing first hand discoveries in the outdoors (“Do the Book!”).

Such an approach begins with the collaborative partnering of librarians (there is a definite emphasis on public and school librarians and libraries serving college education programs) and K-12 school teachers and outdoor or environmental or nature educators combining their skill, interests, and settings to improve children’s understanding of nature in the environments where children live (from home to community), go to school, and play. The nature journal and journaling take on an all-important role in this process, as the primary tool where students are asked to record their observations, reactions, and feelings about their experiences in the our doors, and then use to recordings to reflect their experiences in a wide variety of “means of expression:” a written paragraph or verse, a drawing, a map, and how to supplement that journal record with other means of “data capture” and social networking.

Ideas for special programs and projects will be up for discussion, and weather permitting some outdoor experiential exercises for “Advanced Journal Techniques.” (materials supplied).

"A UX Perspective from Outside of Libraries"
Judy Siegel, Thompson Reuters

The critical role that libraries play in our civic society has perhaps never been more needed than now. Libraries are information centers that also double as community centers -- providing critical access to all kinds of information that directly affects patron's lives.  

The importance of libraries is obvious, but how do we think about and describe the user experience of libraries -- both the digital and physical UX of library spaces? How does this inform how we consume, occupy, and teach within these spaces? How does this inform the design and experience of these spaces?

As a UX Designer by training, I think about the entire UX experience of spaces -- mostly in a digital way, but increasingly in a physical way as well. Because I am such a fan of libraries, I have been involved in several library-centric UX projects. I'll discuss what UX is and why it is critical, share my findings from recent projects, my overall view of UX in libraries, and what I think is coming next.

"Empathy, Assessment, and Improvement: UX in practice with Work Like a User Day"
Justin Cronise, Erie Community College
 
So, you've heard of this "User Experience Design" (UX/UXD).  Wonder what UX looks like in practice?  Bring user experience design into your library with "Work Like a Student Day," a UX-inspired program that:
  • Builds empathy with users
  • Assesses library resources, spaces, and services through a UX lens
  • Identifies specific areas of improvement; and (most importantly),
  • Inspires library staff to action
"A Spirited Guide to Saving Your Library"
Amanda Shepp & Christopher Shepp, Marion Skidmore Library, Lily Dale Assembly
 
Does your library need a resuscitation, makeover, or straight up overhaul, but you don't know where to start? Do you worry about how to keep your community interested in a library they might not even know exists? Have you ever felt that the only way to get people to notice your institution's hidden treasures is to shout about them from a rooftop? 
 
“A Spirited Guide to Saving Your Library” uses the Marion H. Skidmore Library of Lily Dale, NY as a study in taking an historic institution and reintroducing it to new audiences. Learn how to breathe new life into your library through the journey of this unique special collections facility, and why your library deserves to be rescued, too!
 
The floor is leaking, the books are organized by color and catalogued in Latin, I haven’t seen a patron all day, and the last one just needed to use the printer!  Sound familiar?  Overwhelmed with how to bring your institution back to the life it deserves?  Mandi Shepp, Director of the Marion H. Skidmore Library in Lily Dale, and her husband Chris, the town’s Marketing Manager, have been there and will help you break down your issues, assess their solutions, execute your plans, and gain/maintain your brand and audience through public relations tips, community cooperation, and public events.  Let your library’s spirit shine and help it regain the community position it deserves!
 
"Libraries as Social Service Centers"
Tom Vitale, Chautauqua-Cattaraugus Library System
 
Heard in the stacks: "I'm not a social worker; this isn't my job."
 
Where does the work of a librarian end and the work of a social worker begin?  In the 21st century, libraries have redefined their role to be that of a community center. Some libraries actually employ a social worker, or contract an agency social worker to "deal" with myriad populations who need assistance.  Our role is to provide information - whatever information that happens to be is up to the library user. As a helping professional do we also have an obligation to go the extra mile in providing basic casework, or do we find a community resource and pass the buck?
 
Hands-On Activity, Book Paper Crafts

Rhonda Konig, Buffalo & Erie County Public Library
 
 
Led by Rhonda Konig, we'll make a decorative paper craft using discarded books. Books and all other craft materials will be provided.

Craig M. MacDonald is an assistant professor in the School of Information at Pratt Institute (formerly the School of Information and Library Science) where he developed and coordinates the User Experience program. He holds a Ph.D. in Information Studies and Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) from Drexel University and his research addresses two broad themes: (1) investigating and strengthening UX practices in different contexts and (2) understanding and improving UX education. He has presented his research at many top conferences in the field, including the ACM CHI conference, the Information Architecture Summit, the annual meeting of the Association for Library and Information Science Educators (ALISE), and the annual meeting of the Association for Information Science and Technology (ASIS&T). You can follow him on Twitter at @CraigMMacDonald or visit his website at http://www.craigmacdonald.com

Justin Cronise is a librarian at Erie Community College’s South Campus, coordinating instruction, outreach, and a wide array of projects loosely described as “UX.”  In 2015, Justin glowingly reviewed “Useful, Usable, Desirable: Applying User Experience Design to Your Library” (Schmidt & Etches, 2014) for the Journal of Library Innovation, and has been running with it ever since.  When away from the library, Justin enjoys the many joys of homebrewing, reading books with his two adorable children (over and over again), and dreaming of a beach in an undisclosed location.

Judy Siegel is a UX Designer living in Jersey City, NJ. She is currently contracting at Thomson Reuters. Prior to that, she was Director of User Experience at MSNBC Digital, designing the digital presence for the network. Previous jobs include working as a Senior UX Designer at CNN Digital and Ericsson, as well as fellowships at the DNC (where she designed the first mobile canvassing app) and Govloop.com, as well as stints at Fiserv, VMware and the CDC.

Skidmore Library in Lily Dale, NY, as their first professional librarian.  Amanda was promoted to Library Director in 2016.  When she isn’t presenting on topics within the history of Spiritualism or digitization techniques, she’s homebrewing, cooking with science, and finding creative ways to teach listeners how to concoct interesting drinks while disseminating information about the weirder points in history.  Every two weeks, she descends upon the Internet’s radio waves as the Loud-Mouthed Librarian, humble host of This is My Normal Talking Voice, a slightly foul-mouthed educational podcast.

 
Christopher A. Shepp is a prominent online radio personality, sideshow performer, and Marketing expert. He is currently the Marketing Manager for the Lily Dale Assembly. In his leisure time, he brews experimental beers, attempts to consume every horror movie on Netflix, and co-hosts the “This is My Normal Talking Voice” trivia podcast. Universally lauded for his ability to drown out any other noise in the room with his thunderous voice, Chris has continued to mildly amuse audiences to this day.  Notable achievements have included booking an interview with a well-known adult film actress, co-organizing the outreach and events for the Marion H. Skidmore Library, and thumb-wrestling a bear.  
 
Katy Duggan-Haas is an experienced Science Education Consultant and an officer in WNY-STEM. She is the former Director of the Math & Science Center in Jackson, Michigan. Katy enjoys spreading the word on STEM.

WNYLRC Workshop: Web Design from Zero to 60
Date:
Thursday, June 1, 2017
9:00 am to 4:00 pm
Description:

Have no web design experience? Have some experience but want to learn more? This class is for you. In this full-day hands-on workshop, we’ll start by learning the basics of HTML and CSS (the building blocks of web design) and end with you creating a webpage and putting it online.

The instructor will guide the class through hands-on exercises in creating HTML files and seeing how the code you type results in a webpage that the user sees. We’ll learn about the various HTML/CSS tags, proper format and syntax, and the different uses for the two languages. In addition, we’ll learn how HTML files are stored on a webserver and delivered to the user. Then we’ll take the pages we’ve created in the exercises and upload them to a web server.

 No HTML or web design experience is needed. However, you should be familiar with copying/pasting, clicking on links with a mouse, and typing a website address into a browser.

Space is limited to 15 participants!

Lunch will be provided.
