You're a BadgerLearn Pro

BadgerLearn Pro connects you to free, continuing education resources at badgerlearnpro.dpi.wi.gov. Here's a few archived webinars we've added to our collection this month.

Bring 'Em Back: Re-engaging Your Library Users

From NoveList
Where have all the patrons gone? Are you seeing a decline in the number of once-regular visitors stopping in to browse for a book or place a book on hold in your catalog? How can you bring them back?

Merchandising Your Collection: Adapting retail practices in a public library

From McMillan Library
A look at a public library that focused on merchandising its collection by maximizing self-service options, creating a social commons, improving wayfinding and displaying as many items as possible. This last included increased use of genre collections and a partial implementation of BISAC style categories, while still retaining Dewey shelving for non-fiction stacks.

Resource Description and What? RDA for Non-Catalogers

From Nebraska Library Commission
Have you heard the catalogers in your library mumbling about RDA, FRBR, and other mysterious acronyms? Would you like to find how recent cataloging changes could affect you? Resource Description & Access (RDA) is the new cataloging code that replaced AACR2 early in 2013. Get a translation of "cataloger-ese" to explain what RDA is.

Multimedia in Spanish with Wisconsin Media Lab

From BadgerLink
In this 15 minute training from October 22, 2015 learn about Spanish language videos and teaching resources in Wisconsin Media Lab.

Legal Research for Any Librarian

From Georgia Library Association
If you encounter public patrons who come to the library seeking legal help (for example, how to get social security benefits or pursue a discrimination claim) Sarah Mauldin and Meg Butler will guide you through federal tools and resources that are freely available online.

BadgerLearn Pro is a joint project under active development.
