    Title: "Trends and Topics in Library Security and Safety: Keeping Staff and Patrons Protected in the New Normal"

    Date/Time: Pre-recorded – available anytime

    Presented: Dr. Steven Albrecht

    Description: Cases of workplace violence involving armed perpetrators at libraries can be catastrophic. Recent attacks have heightened the awareness of the need for library employees to follow the national Department of Homeland Security (DHS) protocol: Run - Hide - Fight. Since all employees are in charge of their own sense of security, they need to know what to do, what not to do, and how to protect themselves and others during these life-changing events. Dr. Albrecht uses empowerment over fear to make you feel comfortable about an uncomfortable subject.


    Title: All-Volunteer Library is One of the USS Midway's Secret Ingredients

    Date and Time: On-demand for SLA Annual 2020 attendees through November 13, 2020

    Speaker: Pat Alderman, MLS

    Description: The secret is empowering volunteers. The USS Midway is the most successful ship museum in the United States. Its Research Library is run totally by volunteers, except for the boss, the ship's Curator. This staff maintains the Master Crew list, does research for historians and the ship's other volunteer departments like Engineering and the Docent Corp, runs the book store, and is cataloging all of the ship's deck logs, magazines, newspapers, and other documents to create a seamless, comprehensive database of the ship's history, officers, and crew. The Midway was the longest-serving aircraft carrier in the 20th century.
