If you'd like to talk with CARLI staff and your CARLI library colleagues about Alma Fulfillment and Automated Fulfillment Network workflows, known issues, and Q & A, join us online on Friday, October 14, from 2:00-3:30 central.

Sessions are scheduled for every other week on Friday afternoons at 2pm.

CARLI Office Staff will be online to work with your questions and to facilitate the discussion.

  • The presentation portion of the session will be recorded for posting to the CARLI website.
  • If there is time for open Q &A, since Fulfillment involves patron data, the CARLI office will evaluate if it is fitting and valuable to post segments of the session for later review.

Connection information will be sent to registrants the day before.

Additional sessions of "Let's talk about Fulfillment (I mean Alma, not life's purpose)" are scheduled/have occurred.
Please register for future sessions if interested, or review past sessions for the discussion notes. All sessions are listed on the CARLI Event Calendar.

Emotional Intelligence – maybe you’ve heard the term, but what in the world does it mean? The short answer is simply being intelligent about emotions – yours and others’. The longer – and much more interesting – answer will fascinate you.
In this fast-paced 60-minute session we’ll delve into the idea of our own emotions by exploring the first two elements of Emotional Intelligence – self-awareness and self-management – both of which are critical not only to your effectiveness in the workplace, but also to your ability to enjoy life! Then we’ll take a look at how the first two elements help us with the other two – social awareness and relationship management.

We experience our own and others’ emotions every single day. Let’s be aware of how they affect our lives!

Linda Bruno has been developing and conducting training workshops for libraries for more than fifteen years. Her favorite thing to do is to help people become their best selves! That’s why she offers workshops on topics ranging from Leadership Skills to Emotional Intelligence – and lots of areas in between.

Quiet Quitting is everywhere lately. Some believe Quiet Quitting is the result of lazy workers, poor managers, burnout, or the need for new labor rights. All of these perspectives are ultimately opening up dialogues around what it means to show up for work. Join us for our own discussion on Quiet Quitting and how it is impacting library work, culture, and instruction. Rather than one shared reading, we’ve started a suggested resource list. We encourage you to add any articles, podcasts, or videos you’ve engaged with on the topic as well!

Leadership practice, style, and situational outcomes are important topics for anyone who wishes to hone their leadership skills or evaluate how they lead. How can a leadership practice manifest itself in one's personal professional goals and in the goals of moving the library field forward to more healthy workplace culture for ALL?  During the webinar, Ms. Norlin will discuss strategies for building an organizational culture of trust and sustainability by sharing information and how to be more transparent and inclusive in management styles and practices.  Let's stop doing the same thing and expecting different results and start transforming libraries to places everyone feels valued and appreciated for their unique talents, skills and abilities.

Elaina Norlin is the Professional Development DEI Coordinator for the Association of Southeastern Research Libraries. She is an accomplished teacher, technology and leadership development trainer, and writer with extensive leadership experience and a flair for public relations, organizational development, marketing and persuasion and communications.

Self-motivated and results oriented, she is well known for her ability to juggle many projects at once.

Gather with CARLI staff and your technical services colleagues to discuss Alma technical services topics, from acquisitions and cataloging workflows for physical resources to electronic resources management. Each session will include how-to presentations, discussion of consortial practices, and opportunities for questions and answers from CARLI and colleagues alike.

Through recent survey efforts, CARLI member library staff identified a need for increased support with training for OCLC Connexion. To meet this need, the TSC would like to utilize OCLC’s existing nine-module Connexion client training, followed up with review sessions to answer questions you may have about content covered in each module. These review sessions will be held during upcoming CARLI Technical Services Q & As. Training modules and a description of their content are available at

If you’re interested in participating in OCLC Connexion training, please watch the modules on your own and be ready to debrief them at the Tech Services Q&A sessions. Our first review session, during the October 26th CARLI Technical Services Q & A, will cover Module 1: WorldCat, MARC and client basics and Module 2: Basic bibliographic searching. Modules 3 through 9 will be reviewed in future Q&A sessions that will be announced later.

*Please note these modules cover Connexion client, not Connexion browser. Whereas some of the information may be applicable to both, this training is specifically focused on Connexion client. 

Anyone wishing to participate should register at the link above. We also encourage participants to submit questions beforehand by emailing Adrienne Radzvickas at

Module 1: WorldCat, MARC, and Client Basics includes a recording  (120 minutes) and a learner guide. 
Module 2: Basic Bibliographic Searching includes a recording (107 minutes) and a learner guide.

Before viewing the recording, you will be prompted to register with OCLC for the use of the WebEx recording. Registration details include first and last name, email address, institution name, and institution location (state, country, zip code). Click the Register button to proceed, then WebEx will prepare the video player and download the content.

This session will be recorded. Previous sessions are archived as part of the CARLI Technical Services Q&A Webinar Series.
