Have you suddenly been thrust into the newly-formed WFH (Working From Home) cohort? Although it might seem like a dream environment to work in, for many it is disorienting and challenging.

Presenter Laura Solomon has worked almost exclusively from her home since 2008 and is familiar with many of the issues that arise. In this 1-hour webinar, she’ll be covering:

  • Environmental challenges and how to solve them
  • Best practices for remote customer service and internal communications
  • Handling video conferencing like a pro
  • Cybersecurity and tech concerns when WFH

Laura Solomon, MLS, is the Library Services Manager for the Ohio Public Library Information Network and a W3C-certified front-end web developer. She has been doing web development and design for more than twenty years, in both public libraries and as an independent consultant. She specializes in developing with Drupal. She is a 2010 Library Journal Mover & Shaker. She’s written three books about social media and content marketing, specifically for libraries, and speaks nationally on both these and technology-related topics. As a former children’s librarian, she enjoys bringing the “fun of technology” to audiences and in giving libraries the tools they need to better serve the virtual customer.
