Gov Docs: The Basics SlideShare Presentation

Yesterday I attended a webinar called Accidental Government Document Librarian: The Basics. The session was hosted by the North Carolina Library Association Section on Government Resources and the presenter was Bryna Coonin of the Joyner Library at Eastern Carolina University. The session is great for those who need Government Document information, but do not deal with these documents on a daily basis. Ms. Coonin covered information on conducting a reference interview when gov docs materials are involved, gave lists of many useful websites, and SuDoc classification, as well as other topics. This session is available on SlideShare. The webinar is useful for all librarians, not just those in NC, that work with government documents sporadically.

Drama in the Library Facebook Page

Whether it be from patrons or co-workers, most libraries experience drama every now and then. The Drama in the Library Facebook Page is a place where library workers can go and vent, but more importantly get valuable advice from colleagues. Additionally, the page links to articles that give advice on how to help keep a healthy work environment.
