Building Trust Through Successful Hiring, Training and Mentoring
Libraries build trust by providing high quality services which start with hiring and training the best people.

For each section, the presenters will discuss tools, literature on the topic, and personal experience. The audience will participate in discussion and draft materials tailored to their supervisory role.

Libraries in Sustainable Communities: The UN Sustainable Development Goals as a Framework for Change
Libraries are key institutions for achieving the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), a framework for organizational change to create strong, resilient communities. Libraries are familiar, trusted organizations with a mission that supports economic opportunity, equality, civic engagement, education and health.  Rather than creating new, unproven infrastructure, existing library systems can align programming and services to transform lives and connect with community partners.

Investigating Librarian Burnout and Creating Programs to Build Collegiality and Personal Resilience
Libraries are amazing resources for their communities, but are library employees experiencing burnout? Over the past three years, we investigated burnout levels of the Spencer S. Eccles Health Sciences Library employees. We created two interventions, the wellness game and Club Eccles, to build collegiality and personal resilience. This presentation will provide an overview of the burnout research field, our project, interventions, and next steps.

More than We Know What to Do with: The Fulton Library and an Unusual Donation
In 2018, Fulton Library was offered an unusual donation: 63,000 books from the inventory of a closed bookstore.  As this is approximately 1/3rd of the size of the regular collection at Fulton Library, several unique considerations had to be made.  In this presentation, Anthony Morris, Kira Buswell, and Shay Chestnut will discuss our experience with accepting and processing this donation, describe the lessons we've learned, and talk about building mutually beneficial relationships with donors.

I Need to Do What? - Recognizing Institutional Barriers to Access
Are you inadvertently creating access barriers that prevent your patrons from using the library? Do your policies and procedures create barriers for your community? This program will help you recognize institutional barriers and how they disenfranchise the populations that need library services the most.

How to Get Even the Most Reluctant Staff on Board with Assessment: Creating a Culture of Celebration, Assessment, and Improvement
For many staff members, assessment can be an intimidating process. With anxieties about negative feedback, punishment, or toxic oversight, it can be difficult to have staff excited to participate. The assessment librarian at UVU’s Fulton Library will share how she brought assessment to the spotlight as opportunities to celebrate and then used that momentum to tackle more challenging topics in the library.
