Dealing with Digital Distractions: Ideas and Recommendations for Libraries (LibraryWorks Webinar) In-Person

The Massachusetts Library System is pleased to announce that we have partnered with LibraryWorks to provide our members with access to their webinars.  These webinars are free to Massachusetts library workers who register through our calendar. 


Library managers and staff have many demands and distractions. This presentation will help cut through the noise and suggest both technical and non-technical solutions for better balance at work. You’ll learn about different software and apps that can help. Attendees will also learn more about how to deal with email stress, creating boundaries and routines and more.

Through this webinar, you will learn:

  • More about prioritizing tasks
  • Tech-solutions for tech distractions
  • Effective project and time management digital tools
  • Communicating with colleagues and others to better create healthy boundaries
