10-17 Cultural Competencies

October 2017 Email - A Guide to Cultural Competencies

Each month, the Professional Development Committee will be sending out a short guide listing valuable training resources on a specific topic. For October, we’re focusing on resources that help staff create and maintain an inclusive environment for all cultural groups. Though each member library has different demographics in their respective community, we are here to serve everyone equally.


The Chicago Jobs Council provides a solid introduction to this topic. In addition, earlier this year, the Special Populations Task Force put together a handy video about best practices concerning patron language barriers.


You’ll notice some of the recommended resources this month are from Lynda Pro. You can access courses (self-paced and on-demand) from any device with an Internet connection.  Registration for the October session of Lynda Pro is now open! This session will run from October 2-31st.  Registration is open to all BCCLS library staffers via https://bccls-lynda-october-2017.eventbrite.comLibraryLinkNJ also provides free monthly access to Lynda Pro - if you are unable to get a seat with BCCLS, LLNJ registration can be found via http://librarylinknj.org/ce/lynda
