YALSA's Badges for Learning provide a new way for librarians and library workers to gain skills and demonstrate their expertise to employers. These badges are for any school or public library staff member working with teens. The lessons completed in order to earn a badge help staff gain the skills they need to successfully work with adolescents and provide a visual way to show what skills a particular staff member has gained.

Libraries and archives are often asked by the communities they serve to conduct, advise on, or be the institutional home for oral history projects. The librarian or archivist is relied upon to help define an oral history project, provide background research, assemble technical resources, develop a list of interview questions, identify potential interviewees, train interviewers, create products, and house the resulting interviews. This webinar will give participants the foundation for successful oral history projects.

When teens flood into the library, anything can happen. People often think of the library as a “safe space” but sometimes chaos reigns, rather than order! By setting the right tone with regulars, establishing appropriate boundaries, and equitably addressing problem behaviors, you can create a teen space that is consistently welcoming. Learn how to create a dialogue with patrons who engage in distracting or dangerous behavior in the library, address concerns of adult patrons, and create rewards for teens who improve or maintain a positive presence in your space.
