January 29 - March 5, 2007 - Library Services to Persons with Disabilities - Cheryl Stenstrom

At any given time in our libraries, more than one in ten customers has a disability and the statistic rises to almost one in two for those aged sixty-five and over. Some disabilities are obvious -- most are invisible by library staff. While understanding the characteristics of disabilities is important, developing the attitudes, skills and awareness necessary to serve individuals with disabilities is even more critical. This six week online course is for anyone who would like to ensure that all their customers receive high-quality service and that every one of their interactions is enjoyable.

For first-time supervisors and staff new to the library workplace, supervising and leading can be a daunting task. In addition to working with customers, supervisors need to deal with administration, staff motivation and performance management. Based on the hugely popular Supervisory Skills for Library Staff course in BC's Ministry of Education's Community Library Training Program, this six week online course is a mix of practical exercises and management theory and will give anyone new to libraries or those needing a refresher a chance to strengthen their skills as a team leader.
