Trainings for the representatives of Starobilsk, Bielokurakino, Novoaidar and Novopskovsk libraries and LNU library were conducted yesterday in Window on America Center which is located at the premises of Luhansk Taras Shevchenko National University.
Acting Director of ULA Yaroslava Yevhenivna Soshynska greeted the participants and thanked LNU for its cooperation with association.
Ukrainian Library Association is an independent all-Ukrainian public organization on a voluntary basis of persons who are professionally associated with librarianship, bibliography, and information activities and other persons interested in their development, based on common interests for joint implementation of their rights and freedoms.
Ukrainian Library Association is aimed at development of librarianship and providing rights of library users for quality and on-time library and information and bibliographic service and protection of social and common interests of ULA members.
Visit of association members to Starobilsk included two trainings for librarians. The first one was about the use of modern interactive facilities for creating presentations. This was reported by Roman Loiko. He told about Prezi editor – development of Prezi Inc. Prezi provides variety of possibilities for creating different multimedia documents. Today more than 50 million people create their presentations and other projects via this service.
Roman Loiko told about the advantages of this editor and explained the main features of its working.
The subject of the second training was “Public Relations: Where? When? Why?” by PR-manager of Ukrainian Library Association Oksana Boyarinova. She covered the issues of PR working directions, working features with media, crisis PR and the foundations of internal PR. Also Oksana gave the advice how to simplify the work of PR-manager.
“Considering that Window on America Center is our joint project with LNU and USA Embassy, we have decided to visit Starobilsk ourselves, look at center working and to cooperate with our colleagues from Luhansk Regional Department of ULA. This is one more possibility of direct communication and support of our colleagues at the territory of Luhanshchyna who work under such complicated conditions now. We are going to conduct such visits in future as well. We hope that such professional cooperation will demonstrate the result as quality library and information service for the whole society”, – noted Yaroslava Yevhenivna Soshynska.
