ARLIS/NA and ACRL Arts Section members are invited to attend this special joint webinar that explores the role of librarians' individual creativity and its effects in the library workplace and greater community.

Tina Chan, Reference/Instruction Librarian at SUNY-Oswego, will discuss On My Own Time, a community event that celebrates the creative talent of faculty and staff who are visual artists "on their own time."  SUNY Oswego participated in On My Own Time to recognize employees’ individual artistic talents and to foster imagination and creativity among employees. (Chan's presentation is encored from the ACRL-Arts discussion forum at the 2012 ALA annual conference.)

Annette Haines, Art & Design Field Librarian at the University of Michigan, will explore the existing theories and ideas on workplace creativity and how they apply to librarianship. Haines stresses the imperative of putting creative work first and offers strategies librarians can apply to manage workplace stress and foster creativity in themselves and others. (Haines' presentation is an encore from the 2012 ARLIS/NA annual conference.)
