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).
