DESCRIPTION: Recent mass shootings in public places should remind all library leaders and their staffs to review their emergency response plans to this disturbing event. These incidents are often foreshadowed by warning signs and specific pre-attack behaviors by disturbed patrons that may be noticed by staff members.

This 60-minute webinar is led by Dr. Steve Albrecht, a national leader in both workplace violence prevention and library security. He'll provide safety tools and security techniques to empower library employees at every level, not frighten them. This includes his discussion of how some people make threats and others pose threats; the national response protocol known as Run-Hide-Fight; how to safely evacuate all patrons and staff; how to shelter in place in the library; and how to best protect patrons and staff from an armed attacker. Dr. Albrecht will also discuss why these perpetrators strike in the first place and what we can learn from past cases as a way to both understand and stop them.

DR. STEVE ALBRECHT

For the past 17 years, Dr. Steve Albrecht has made himself well-known to library training audiences around the country. His fast and empowering workshops focus on library safety and security issues; patron behavioral problems; customer service tools; and facility security improvements. His 2015 book, Library Security: Better Communication, Safer Facilities, was published by the ALA.

Steve is one of the country's leading experts on the prevention of workplace and school violence. In 1994, he co-wrote Ticking Bombs, one of the first business books on workplace violence. He interviewed a double murderer for the book.

He holds a doctoral degree in Business Administration, an M.A. in Security Management, a B.A. in English, and a B.S. in Psychology. He is board certified in human resources, security, employee coaching, and threat management.

In 1999, Steve retired from the San Diego Police Department, where he had worked since 1984, both as a full-time officer and later as a reserve sergeant and a domestic violence investigator.

He has written 21 books on business, security, and law enforcement subjects.

Library 2.016: LIBRARIES OF THE FUTURE was held on October 6th, 2016. As libraries shape their futures – and adapt to the future needs of their communities – what are the near- and long-term trends that point to our brightest opportunities? What can we learn from library innovators and innovators from other sectors and industries that will help us shape the future we want and that our communities aspire towards?

We explored some of the key trends that point toward specific futures for libraries, and engage in conversations with civic, social, and education innovators to learn more about what they think about the future, and how libraries can become an integral part of their future visions. Libraries and librarians are well-positioned to envision the future – at the intersection of information, education, technology, and community – and this dialogue will help bring our best thinking together with the exciting visions of our collaborators, allies, and partners. Sponsored with ALA’s Center for the Future of Libraries.

Library 2.016: LIBRARY AS CLASSROOM was held on June 15th, 2016. In A New Culture of Learning, authors Douglas Thomas and John Seely Brown write, “Where imaginations play, learning happens.” This could and should define our services for now and in the future. The library as creative classroom means we approach the learning opportunities we create with thought, user-directed planning, and insights from research. This classroom may include physical spaces for instruction and discovery as well as online, multi-scale platforms aimed at social learning and participation.

Libraries of all kinds serve as formal and informal creative classrooms, supporting learners by employing emerging strategies in learning and engagement. These include: play, collaborative exploration of ideas and technologies, and other innovations. There are notable examples of academic, public, and K-12 library spaces that have become creative classrooms. These feature community learning spaces to help learners achieve, game-focused initiatives that make the library a laboratory for exploration, creation zones with requisite digital and 3-D hardware for building things, and potentially endless opportunities to connect virtually with people worldwide.

The library as classroom requires inspired and insightful management that can do those things and more. The library as classroom also requires well-trained, user-focused staff who understand how people of all ages can learn socially. Art programs, DIY tinkering, locally sourced expert forums, and LOOCs (local open online courses) are all part of this ­curriculum.

Library 2.016: PRIVACY IN THE DIGITAL AGE was held on March 16th, 2016. What are the roles and responsibilities of libraries regarding the protections of intellectual freedom, privacy, free speech, information access, and freedom of the press? Are these still core values of the library profession, and if so, how are libraries and librarians responding to the increasing complexities of data tracking and desires for data-informed services and marketing?

In this focused conversation on privacy, we planned on hearing from a variety of library professionals as well as keynote Speakers: Lee Rainie; Director, Internet, Science, and Technology Research; Pew Research Center; Jamie Larue, Director, Office for Intellectual Freedom, American Library Association; Jonathan Hernández, Associate Researcher, Library and Information Institute, National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM); Deborah Caldwell-Stone, Deputy Director, Office for Intellectual Freedom, American Library Association; and Alison Macrina, Director, Library Freedom Project.
