Job descriptions A job description should be more than a list of tasks that you perform on a daily basis. It should also encompass skills and competencies. Can you send and open attachments in email? Can you do basic computer trouble shooting, such as replugging in a computer, a keyboard or a mouse when some mischievous child thinks it’s fun to unplug them all during storytime.

Working with Difficult People Difficult people are everywhere. You meet them at work, at home, in school, church and at board meetings. Not only that, they are difficult in so many different ways.

These people and their negativity are eating you up.... More...

New Brochures Available The new brochures for e-Resources are now available! In addition to the new Northern Lights Library System brochure and the Non-Resident Patron Fee brochure, which you should have received in van run a week or two ago, I’ve created ten new brochures on e-Resources. Originally the e-Resources were presented in a single brochure that crammed all the database descriptions into teeny tiny print. No more! Two of the new brochures are dedicated to simple search techniques,... More...
