Integrating Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs into Employee Training

In 1943, Abraham Maslow introduced his “Theory of Human Motivation,” followed by “Motivation and Personality” in 1954. His hierarchy of needs, represented as a pyramid, has become influential in both education and business, particularly in the realm of training. Understanding these needs is essential for creating effective learning environments. [Read more…]

Turkey Takeover

When turkeys aren’t just hanging out in the oven/sauna for 2 to 5 hours at 325 degrees, they’re looking for a bargain. Because turkeys are notoriously thrifty.Happy Thanksgiving Day! (Turkey waving)

CLiC’s money-saving deals are all the rage among the entire poultry community. We see turkeys subscribing to EBSCO databases, chickens licensing Pebble Go Next, and pheasants doing research through Infobase products.

Take from us — e-resource products really are for the birds.

By the way, CLiC will be closed on Thursday and Friday this week.

FY23-24 Courier Estimates

Man unloading bins from truck

The Courier Team soon will be initiating the annual process of sending out courier cost estimates for the coming service year (October 2023 – September 2024). Those should be showing up in your email inboxes starting after September 20. If you have an urgent need for your library’s estimate, please email and we’ll work to expedite that document.

Pause for a moment and think about the impact of statewide resource sharing. Here’s a quote from a Western Slope library patron about why statewide resource sharing is so important, “I am an avid reader, usually having at least 2 books on my reading table, as well as one audio book in my car for commuting and another audio book in my house for distraction during housework and exercising. I always have several materials on my Hold list (today I have 8). I am so grateful for the courier service that brings me materials from our District, as well as outside it. In fact, my life would be so much drearier without it!

That right there is why we do all the work that makes statewide resource sharing happen!
