how we recognized the need for change and implemented programming to connect 
with our users.   Some of the most successful programs will be highlighted as 
well as lessons learned and next steps.

Are Leaders/Managers Born, or Made? 
April 28, 2020 at 2pm ET / 1pm Central Time Strong leadership is the most 
significant driver of high morale and productivity. In fact, poorly trained, 
inadequate leaders cost large organizations billions of dollars lost in 
productivity, low morale, and turnover. On the other hand, successful 
organizations are full of strong, passionate leaders who make a real 
difference. The question is:  Are these leaders born or made?

Recorded webinars from WRLC's 2020 Virtual Membership Meeting

Cultivating Leadership in the Next Generation of Librarians What does 
leadership or management mean to you? Is it limited to a title in your 
organization's hierarchy? Cultivating value in your organization can be 
challenging no matter the position you hold. If leadership is about influence 
and vision, it shouldn't be limited by position. Our speakers discuss what 
being a leader means to them within the context of both formal and informal 
opportunities to influence individuals and outcomes.

Personal librarianship: Impact on Information Literacy Confidence and Academic 
Outcomes Many academic libraries have implemented personal librarian programs, 
seeking to improve relationships with students and reduce library anxiety. This 
session shares early findings and lessons from a personal librarian research 
study at the University of District of Columbia that occurred in a general 
education class during the fall 2019 semester.
 Speakers discuss the pros/cons of our approach and how, if at all, personal 
librarians supported student success.

Saving Their Memories: Oral History Capture and Curation Interested in setting 
up an oral history program for your institution, and not sure what is involved? 
Speakers discuss George Mason's experience in putting one together, 
maintaining, and growing it, with respect to personnel, equipment, workflows, 
and best practices.

Using APIs to Increase Alma Workflow Efficiency Staff at the Washington 
Research Library Consortium have developed applications to facilitate working 
with the records for materials in each member library's Alma Institution Zone. 
These applications can create or edit fields in the bibliographic, holding and 
item records without using the Alma interface or user roles. The applications 
can be especially beneficial for library staff and student assistants who do 
not need full resource management privileges to perform a discrete task. 
Recently completed apps have improved Alma workflows for the Shared Collections 
Facility, leading to significant improvement in efficiency and cost control.

Using Alma Analytics In Our Day-To-Day Work  The Alma Analytics Training Team 
has been helping individuals build their capacity to use the Alma Analytics 
tool since July 2018. Twenty months later, WRLC libraries are able to see the 
impact of the tool on their day-to-day work. A panel of Analytics users will 
share specific examples of reports, how they are used, and how their workflows 
have changed since the migration.

The Living Alma Community Zone Community: Working with Community Contributed 
Records and Collections The Alma Community Zone (CZ) is a centralized, 
comprehensive platform focused on electronic resource offerings, leveraging 
community cataloging and knowledge. The CZ is an ever-evolving and increasingly 
complex resource that librarians and paraprofessional staff must learn to 
navigate effectively. Ex Libris User communities have often voiced 
dissatisfaction with the overall quality of the metadata within the CZ, 
particularly for ebooks. Through Community Contributed Records and Collections, 
Ex Libris users have the opportunity to contribute robust metadata directly to 
the CZ-empowering users with useful tools that can help shape and raise the 
overall bibliographic standard of CZ metadata.

A New Approach to Finding Aid Displays with Web CMS Catholic University 
Libraries' website transitioned to a new University enterprise Content 
Management System (CMS) in 2019. The libraries' Web Team used this opportunity 
to implement substantive enhancements to the appearance of its finding aids to 
archival collections. This presentation discusses this process and the 
improvements, setbacks, and lessons learned.

Supporting Faculty Research with Online Exhibition Software Platforms: Tropy, 
WordPress, ESRI StoryMaps, and Omeka-S Learn about a collaboration between 
American University Library and AU's Center for Teaching, Research, and 
Learning to promote online exhibition platforms as a way of showcasing faculty 
research.  Speakers provide use cases and examples for each platform (i.e., 
Tropy, WordPress, ESRI StoryMaps and Omeka-S).

Web Accessibility Strategies for the New Decade Section 508 was added to the 
Rehabilitation Act in 1998 and the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0 
became a W3C recommendation in 1999. Despite these laws and guidelines having 
now been in place for over twenty years, the progression of Web technology and 
the corresponding evolution of accessibility recommendations has made 
compliance, if anything, even more difficult. The presenter gives a brief 
overview of recent accessibility-related developments followed by a 
demonstration of accessibility evaluation and remediation techniques of varying 
technological complexity.

Absentee Ballot Day in the Library
In 2018, the American University Library held its first Absentee Ballot Day and 
helped over 1,000 students request absentee ballots. Gwendolyn Reece has 
created an Absentee Ballot Day toolkit, started a listserv for collaboration 
and will share all you need to host an Absentee Ballot Day at your library. The 
WRLC Library Directors Council has endorsed the idea.

DIY VHS Preservation for Libraries
By the end of the decade, library VHS collections will be unusable due to 
degradation and obsolescence. Faced with losing access to their collection of 
4000+ out-of-distribution VHS titles, the American University Library developed 
a comprehensive do-it-yourself plan to preserve their collection. Chris Lewis 
and Phil Salvador from American University explain their VHS preservation 
project and how it fits within their collection management responsibilities. 
Their project offers a potential blueprint for others to develop a practical, 
cost-effective process to preserve their collections.

Getting Started with Library Privacy: Privacy Practices for Library Personnel  
Listen to this session to learn some concrete skills and attitudes that can 
help protect the privacy of our communities. The speakers start with the 
concept of "threat modeling" to help viewers understand the risks to their data 
from a more theoretical perspective, and then move to concrete best practices 
to protect our data at both organizational and individual levels. They look at 
toolkits such as the ALA Library Privacy Checklists, EFF's Surveillance 
Self-Defense training and the Library Bill of Rights. You'll leave with a list 
of actions you could take to improve web privacy for yourself and your

Teaching Computational Skills with the Carpentries As a means to address the 
ever increasing need for computational skills across disciplines and 
departments, many libraries and other research services providers on campuses 
around the globe have been participating in the Carpentries, a 
community-driven, global organization focused on teaching data and coding 
skills with evidence-based instruction practices. In this presentation, 
librarians from George Washington and George Mason Universities introduce the 
Carpentries, describe their participation in this  effort at each school, and 
outline future plans for instruction and other services around computational
