Libraries have been slower than other workplaces to address staff bullying. That tide is turning. Be an early adopter of policies to address this. Learn the facts about bullying in the library workplace so you can be a part of the change. This is a difficult but important subject and everyone — staff, managers, admin — all have a role in working together to address the issue.

In this 30-minute webinar you will learn the current state of research into bullying in the library workplace, how extensive the issue is, and possible directions for solutions.

Amy An teaches information and tech literacy at a public library in south Florida. Before working in a public library, she worked at the Wimberly Library at Florida Atlantic University and taught high school history. She also serves as the discussion group leader for the Security and Privacy Discussion Forum for the SEFLIN S&P Learning Cluster and is a member of the FLA Marketing & Membership committee. She is the author of, “The Mission-Informed Library: Internal Marketing to Improve the Organizational Climate in the Public Library,” published in the Jan/Feb 2019 issue of Public Libraries. She was also invited to speak on the Library Leadership podcast in April 2019 on “Staff as Our Most Important Customers: Creating a Mission-Informed Library.” Her presentations include the Florida Library Association (May 2019), Tennessee Regional Library all-day in-service (December 2019), and webinars for the Florida Multitype Library Cooperatives.
