Motivation is complex. Individuals choose to do things for reasons that are internal and external to themselves.  As librarians, our jobs typically require us to work with people on a day-to-day basis and many of these interactions include answering questions, providing support, and instructing on how to use a new device or software product. 

Understanding what motivates and encourages people can help us have better interactions and better serve our communities. 

In this interactive and informative program, Lauren will introduce attendees to a variety of motivational theories and then provide examples of how to apply those theories in a range of library settings and situations.

At the end of this program, attendees will be able to:

  • Summarize different motivation theories
  • Apply motivational theories in their own libraries
  • Evaluate how they use motivation in their library and identify areas for change and improvement
  • Share and explore new ideas on how to motivate their library users
