Event Name:
Serving Veterans in the Library

Patron and Community Awareness and Customer Service

Veteran Americans are special people who have proudly served to protect and defend the United States of America.  Their significant contributions and experiences - all the result of skilled military training (tactical, moral/spiritual, group-based) -- present many opportunities and some challenges in several key areas (employment, healthcare, community engagement).  This webinar will help library professionals identify Veteran Americans' needs, learn more about Veteran American resources/information, and understand what Veteran American support organizations do (and how to engage them to enable the creation and presentation of Veteran-centric programming/historic preservation projects).

Learning Objectives:
  • Learn about  creating successful veteran outreach programs
  • Learn more about veterans and their needs
  • Hear about ways to identify veterans in your community to encourage them to tell their stories.

Tom Adamich is a Digital Asset Librarian (since 2011), certified teacher-librarian (since 2000), and a librarian since 1991.
