In Defense of Sex, Drugs and Rock & Roll:  How to Talk to Parents about YA Fiction

Why do teens want to read those “bleak” YA books?  How do you explain to an angry parent who knows little about YA literature why certain books are in the teen section?  Learn how to express why teens prefer “junk” to “classics,” why it’s okay for their teen to be reading the same book over and over, and why there is nothing wrong with their teen being obsessed with horror or serial killer books!

Imagine No Possessions:  Plagiarism, the Net Generation Student, and the Academic Librarian

The increasing presence of plagiarism and its seemingly irresistible lure in scholarly research has clashed with deficient, outdated academic library policies, and the result has been detrimental to higher education and academic integrity.  Once immune from the ills of plagiarism, academic librarians now must take direct involvement to stem the tide of academic dishonesty.  Cultural change brought from the Net Generation student is now forcing information literacy programs -- especially for librarians who conduct bibliographic instruction -- to include plagiarism and the ethical use of primary and secondary research materials in their instructional sessions.

Keynote Speaker:  Karen Hyman

Do Libraries Rock?  Some More than Others…

What makes a library great?  Are there shortcuts to greatness?  Come to find out what great organizations do that you could borrow, adapt or shamelessly copy to jumpstart your library’s move to the next level.

As a result of this program participants will:


·  Learn what great libraries know about attracting and keeping customers

·  Make at least one change at their libraries with an instant great effect

·  Find the sweet spots: lower cost, lower labor choices with high potential for big results

Karen Hyman has worked in public libraries, as a State Library Consultant, and as Executive Director of the South Jersey Regional Library Cooperative where she develops services for 600 member libraries.  Her chief inspiration has been her role as a library user, which “clears the vision wonderfully.”   


Karen’s 12-step Reinventing Your Library programs have been a feature at every Public Library Association Conference since 2000 and have been presented at library conferences, staff days, and trustee workshops in 38 states/provinces in the U.S. and Canada.


Some of her publications include “What Makes a Project Work?” (American Libraries, April 2006); “Struggling in a One-Stop Home-Shopping World, or People Want What They Want When They Want It – Don’t You? in Library Networks in the New Millennium:  Top Ten Trends, American Library Association, 2000; and “Customer Service and the Rule of 1965:  Stalled on the Way to the New Millennium in American Libraries, October 1999.


Karen was the 1997 NJLA Librarian of the Year and received the NJLA Library Service Award in 2002. She was also the recipient of the 2003 Leadership Achievement Award from the ASCLA Division of the American Library Association.

What is a Library Record and Why Do I Care?

In the age of electronic records and subscriptions the concept of “library record” has become blurred.  The knowledge of what constitutes a record is critical, because it helps to understand which documents are covered by the NJ confidentiality statute, which documents you can freely provide to law enforcement, and which documents law enforcement must provide to you.

Grab their attention: How to get your message through to today’s distracted audiences (book signing to follow)


Today’s audiences—including your staff and your board—are so busy and overloaded that they’re getting increasingly difficult to reach. Breaking through the clutter does not mean communicating more—it requires taking a different approach that incorporates smart techniques from Hollywood, Madison Avenue, politics, consumer magazines and even anthropology.  


 In this interactive session, Alison will share what she’s learned about getting people’s attention from researching her book, Your Attention, Please (Adams Business, October 2006). This session will provide you with techniques you can put to use immediately, including how to:      Focus on “you” (their audience) to catch their attention and motivate them,  Break through the clutter and get an audience to take action, Communicate a single concept clearly,  Make access easy, Use visual communication to cut down on information overload,  and Keep communication tools focused and to the point by focusing on what matters most.

The session features an exercise designed to help you think about how they can put lessons to work within your organization.


Alison Davis is founder and CEO of Davis & Company, the award-winning internal communication firm that helps Fortune 500 companies—such as CIT, Dow Corning, Hewlett-Packard, IKEA, MasterCard, Merck and Wyeth—reach, engage and motivate their employees. She is co-author of the book, Your Attention, Please! (Adams Business, 2006) and has written numerous articles and reports on employee communication. A sought-after speaker on HR communication issues, Alison has appeared at such organizations as The Arthur W.

Surviving a Genealogy Reference Interview

Genealogists can be a challenge for reference librarians.  They can pin you down with lengthy stories of their great-granduncle’s Civil War service, befuddle you with arcane questions about probate records, and jam your printers with census records.  But genealogy reference work can also be very rewarding for both librarians and patrons.  Learn the basic tools and strategies for helping family historians.

From Awareness to Funding

In 2008 OCLC, with funding from the Gates Foundation, published the From Awareness to Funding report. Key findings include that funding is only marginally related to library visits; perceptions of librarians are an important predictor of library funding support and voters who see the library as a 'transformational' force are more likely to increase taxes in its support. Join our speaker for a discussion of this report and its implications for library advocacy.  This session will also include an update on local and statewide public policy issues presented by NJLA's  Executive Director.  A demonstration of the CAPWIZ library advocacy web tool will round out this session on library funding and public policy issues.
