2014 Annual Conference and Exhibits - Final Program Guide

  1. 1. Florida Library Association Conference Program 2014 Annual Conference and Exhibits May 7-9, 2014 Buena Vista Palace Hotel Lake Buena Vista, FL Preconference - May 6, 2014
  2. 2. When I set out to develop a theme, I began by looking at themes used by other state library associaƟons. One in parƟcular resonated with me: New Mexico's theme from the early ‘90s, "Through the Eyes of the Patron." Throughout my library career, I have always believed that my primary responsibility was to the patron of my library. In 2012, while seeking a short, catchy phrase that captured the "eyes of the patron" concept, I aƩended the most riveƟng, thought‐provoking workshop ever at the Florida Public Library Director's MeeƟng. The speaker was Amy Herman and her topic was percepƟon. I realized there could be a gaping chasm between what we think we know, what we actually know, and true reality. With my mind reeling from the ideas presented, I knew percepƟon must also be part of my theme! I’m delighted that Amy Herman will keynote the Opening Session of the 2014 FLA annual conference. “Envision Excellence” pulls together the concepts of the patron’s eye and percepƟon. Thanks to the arƟsƟc talents of Andy Orrell and Mianne Nelson in the Polk County CommunicaƟons Division, the conference logo presents a visual idea of where I want this theme to take us. This year, I want us each to think about how our services look through our patrons’ eyes. No maƩer what type of library we are in, our focus needs to be on our patrons. We all want our libraries to be excellent, but are we striving to be excellent in our eyes, or in the eyes of our patrons? Who or what are we using to measure excellence? Let's challenge ourselves to be aware of possible differences between our percepƟons of our libraries, our collecƟons, our staff, our programs, our services...and our patrons’ percepƟons. This year let's "Envision Excellence" in everything we do in our Library Lives! FLA is grateful for the work of FLA volunteer Maria Gebhardt for designing and ediƟng this Program Guide.

  5. 5. Page 8 Preconference Workshop You Are the Patron: Envisioning and Training for Excellent Library Service from the Patron’s PerspecƟve To envision excellence in service, library staff must learn to see service through the eyes of their patrons. This workshop is derived from the “You Are the Visitor” training program at the world’s largest children’s museum, which was adapted later for training university library staff in exploring customer expectaƟons and values, with pracƟcal connecƟons to library performance guidelines. The session will begin with a demonstraƟon of the training program using improvisaƟon and role‐playing acƟviƟes, facilitated discussion, and applicaƟon exercises to help parƟcipants understand how patrons experience the library. Following the demonstraƟon of the program, facilitators will guide parƟcipants to discover ways to adapt the training process and techniques for their own libraries. Handouts will summarize and illustrate the training process and how parƟcipants can work with their staff to make visits to the library more open, inviƟng, and producƟve. Speakers: Tony Stamatoplos, University of South Florida, St. Petersburg and Kari Ann Stamatoplos, formerly with The Children's Museum of Indianapolis Pre‐registaƟon Required.

  8. 8. Page 11 Amy Herman: The Art of PercepƟon http://aop.artfulperception.com The ability to observe is grounded in the percepƟon of visual informaƟon and the effecƟve arƟculaƟon of what the eye sees and what the brain interprets. Learning to reconsider how we perceive the world around us renews the criƟcal nexus between the eye and the mind. The Art of PercepƟon is credited with improving observaƟon and communicaƟon skills and facilitaƟng the exchange of criƟcal informaƟon for individuals charged with establishing and leading the strategic direcƟon of complex teams. Hear Amy Herman at the Opening Session and in her follow‐up session. J. Jeff Kober: Disney at Work http://disneyatwork.com J. Jeff Kober brings customer service ideas from Disney’s workplace to FLA! “The Wonderful World of Customer Service at Disney” is a celebraƟon of great business pracƟces that can be applied to your own service organizaƟon.
