Webinar: Serving those who served: Working with the Veteran and Military Communities
July 13, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm UTC-6$45
In recent years, libraries have become increasingly interested in identifying ways that they can better support the veterans, service members, and military family members in their communities. Indeed, IMLS has recognized the importance that libraries can play in supporting veteran and military-affiliated patrons in its new Community-Based Solutions for Veterans and Military Families initiative. In this webinar, two librarians who are also military veterans themselves will help librarians get started working with veteran and military-affiliated patrons by sharing some crucial background information about the veteran and military communities, including common pitfalls and FAQs. They will also share ideas, strategies, and success stories related to library outreach and programming for the veteran and military communities in both public and academic libraries.
