Riti Grover Explains Library Management Tips for Success

Library management is more than arranging books; it involves human resource management, financial planning, risk management, and other administrative functions

FARMINGTON HILLS, MICHIGAN, UNITED STATES, September 23, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — What does a librarian do? To many people, they check books in and out and probably arrange books nicely on the shelves. Sometimes library management may involve yelling at some of the people who don’t behave appropriately. Managing these visible aspects of the library may not be as straightforward as it appears, yet there are some invisible, more complex aspects. Riti Grover, from Farmington Hills, Michigan, shares the following tips to help you do an excellent job at it.

Understand the Library Management Roles

Public Libraries have become an essential part of communities and are evolving rapidly as ‘Community Hubs’ which have something for everybody. So, to manage a library one has to be a ‘proficient manager’ managing operations (i.e. finances, human resources, physical and digital collections, facilities maintenance, strategic planning, risk management, programming, community relations, fundraising, etc.) as well as a ‘motivating leader’ sparking innovation and collaboration.” Riti Grover stated.

Understand the Library Hierarchy

Getting people to read is the ultimate purpose of a library, but there is more to the library than what happens on the library floor. There is an administrative system behind the scenes that keeps the establishment running smoothly.

“A library manager or director should understand the responsibilities of each of the positions and assign authorities accordingly. Just like any other organization, a functional 'Organizational Structure’ or a reporting hierarchy is vital for running a library optimally.” Riti Grover added.

Understand the Authorities’ Requirements for the Library

Governments usually have mandatory requirements for libraries. Some of these requirements are structural such as the office spaces it must have. The authorities may also put a condition for the size of the reading space vis a vis the number of books in the library.

“Public libraries need to ensure compliance with local, county, and State requirements and report based on the way they were/are originally established and registered – non-profit 501 3(C) Association, Municipal, County, or District library/library systems”. Riti Grover stated.

Always Budget for Operations

A library, like any other institution, needs money to run. It is likely to run out of resources if the management doesn’t plan effectively. This would negatively affect the services it offers. Factor the human resource budget, maintenance, book purchases, etc.

“Libraries usually receive a limited/fixed amount as revenues from the cities/counties and State Aid. So, you need to have the financial acumen to budget for routine operations and contingencies for continued patron services. However, major Capital Projects require the management to take more innovative approaches to raise additional private and public funds.” Riti Grover explains.

Have a Risk Management Plan

“A risk management plan protects the library from legal and financial issues. A library is a public space, and it may be held liable for accidents and losses within its premises. Employees may sue for any number of reasons, and you need to ensure that the library's resources are protected.” Concluded Riti Grover.

You should ensure that the library has adequate insurance to cover all possible liability. Effective management should put loss control measures in place to protect library resources.

SAN FRANCISCO, CA, USA, September 23, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Gupshup, the leader in conversational messaging, today announced that it has acquired New Jersey based Dotgo. Dotgo is the global industry leader in RCS business messaging (RBM), with award-winning technologies such as the RichOTP®, RichSMS™, Bot Store®, and Dotgo MaaP (Messaging as a Platform) that foster the growth of RCS Business Messaging.

Dotgo’s MaaP, offered in partnership with, and pre-integrated with, Google Jibe platform, has been selected to operate RCS business messaging at several mobile network operators. Dotgo has been a leading contributor at the Mobile Ecosystem Forum and GSMA in defining standards and processes for RCS Business Messaging.

Learn How to Detect Bias in Social Media and News Stories

Erik Bean, Author, Bias Is All Around You

Erik Bean, Author, Bias Is All Around You: A Handbook for Inspecting Social Media & News Stories

Book offers media literacy lessons to help people separate facts from fiction

Information can outsmart anyone regardless of their background or education. Bias Is All Around You provides resources to analyze information to determine its source, its authenticity, and objectivity”

— Erik Bean, Author, Bias Is All Around You

FARMINGTON HILLS, MICHIGAN, UNITED STATES, September 23, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Healthy Mind Express, a Michigan based non-profit publishing imprint is pleased to announce that The U.S. Book Review has recommended its new title, "Bias Is All Around You: A Handbook for Inspecting Social Media & News Stories by Erik Bean, Ed.D."

Book Review by David Hennessee

"Across the political spectrum, one of the most common ways to discredit a media outlet or individual is to accuse them of bias. However, as author Bean shows, bias is not just a failing of the other side. Instead, the current media and political landscape is chock-full of it. His book explains the forms bias takes, its prevalence across social media, and the stakes involved for individuals and societies. Most importantly, Bean offers tools for spotting and countering bias. The book starts by clearly defining bias and the critical thinking that can counter it. Next, it details various strategies for detecting and evaluating bias, including examining the credibility of sources, rhetoric, writing style, and journalistic ethics. Later chapters summarize the damaging effects of social media algorithms and the various logical fallacies that can distort thinking. The book ends by relating its topic to modern events, including the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 presidential election, and the war in Afghanistan.

This book stands out not only for its clarity and relevance but also for its inclusion of useful resources for avoiding bias. For example, Bean suggests evaluating bias through "KLEMP," or the ancient Greek rhetorical concepts kairos, logos, ethos, mythos, and pathos. He also lists and defines logical fallacies common to biased thinking, such as hasty generalization, ad hominem, and red herring. The book can be read in one sitting, and it would be of interest to anyone looking to consume media more responsibly. Moreover, its many worksheets and checklists could be adapted for use in high school and college classrooms. The book's final appeal for greater media literacy and civil discourse could not come at a more critical time, and the tools it presents are a first step toward achieving those goals.

RECOMMENDED by the US Review"

Author Erik Bean takes readers on a rigorous yet introspective journey to snuff out bias, to understand algorithms that affect internet and social media information and provide them simple assessment tools that allow them to be more confident if they use the information and share it.

"Under a nation driven by free speech there are penalties for falsely screaming fire in a theater. We should all ask ourselves even with the truth vetted, why would some people still want to share a false narrative?" Excerpt p. 50

Christian Guide Book Explains the Simplicity of Salvation

Beyond Salvation: The Art of Receiving God's Promises

Beyond Salvation: The Art of Receiving God’s Promises

Katherine Free's explainer explores "Beyond Salvation: The Art of Receiving God's Promises"

TEXAS, UNITED STATES, September 23, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Those looking to get more enjoyment out of their spiritual walk can turn to Katherine Free's guide book, "Beyond Salvation: The Art of Receiving God's Promises." In its pages she details how believers can experience God more and thus experience greater joy and victory as children of the Lord.

Free's book is aimed at Christians and Non-Christians alike – anyone who struggles with their salvation or who finds (or thinks) a relationship with God to be hard, demanding, or less than enjoyable. Her message is the unconditional love of God.

"God is for you. He loves you. He is not trying to make it hard for you. It is His good pleasure to give His children the Kingdom. Reading this book will help you to take the work out of salvation and to joyfully receive all that He has provided for you." Free says.

"Beyond Salvation" is a book written for those who are seeking more. The lessons in Free's guide are drawn from the Bible itself and are presented in a simple, sweetly penetrating fashion. The biblical truths in “Beyond Salvation” are, in Free’s words, “exact as a scalpel.” These truths sever layers of religious tradition and wrong mindsets that may have discouraged some from entering into the Kingdom of God and blinded others to the reality of their Kingdom benefits as a child of God. Free goes back to basics as she contrasts religion and salvation, explains who Hell was created for, defines salvation and outlines principles for receiving and holding onto God’s promises.

“As a believer, we complicate things way to much. Friends, it doesn't have to be this way. God's word is true, simple and life changing. Beyond Salvation will take you on a journey. You will take inventory of your present position. You will be guided into all truth. You will be moved to take action but most of all you'll see the love of God in EVERY page.”

Salem's Ropes: New Novel About the Haunted Ropes Mansion by Amazon Bestselling Author To Be Released

Salem's Ropes Cover

Salem’s Ropes Cover

A New Book about the Haunted Ropes Mansion in Salem, Massachusetts Written by Amazon Bestselling Author Joseph C. Gioconda

SALEM, MASSACHUSETTS, UNITED STATES, September 23, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — A new novel inspired by the shocking true historical accounts of the haunted Ropes Mansion in Salem, Massachusetts is being released.

The book is being launched in conjunction with the Peabody Essex Museum. Amazon bestselling author of The Pope's Butcher Joseph C. Gioconda will be at the Ropes Mansion at 318 Essex Street on Saturday, October 16 from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. for the book launch. He will be signing and giving away free copies of the book.

Inspired by true historical events and figures, Salem’s Ropes is the story of America’s oldest and darkest secrets.

After a business trip to Boston, George Lawson announces to his family that he has purchased the Ropes Mansion in Salem; a historic mansion that is 300 years old. His wife and daughter are skeptical but acquiesce. Over forty of the mansion’s owners have died unnaturally, were murdered, or committed suicide since 1720. Salem’s residents warn George about living in the Ropes, but he is convinced he can uncover the mystery.

The family is torn apart after George becomes increasingly obsessed with uncovering the dark history of Salem and their new home. He discovers mysterious objects and Masonic symbols carved onto the walls of their basement. After a smoke alarm goes off in the middle of the night, firefighters discover smoldering embers behind a basement wall – along with strange human remains. Police are called and suspect that there is more to the story than George will admit. Like countless others in the Ropes house before, George and his family fight a descent into madness.

Free Advanced Reader Copies are available to reviewers and members of the. One hundred free digital copies are also being offered in a giveaway on GoodReads.com.

The book will be available in paperback, eBook/Kindle on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Ingram Spark and from other retailers and distributors. An audiobook is being simultaneously released.

LAB DIRECTOR AND AUTHOR TO CREATE TV SERIES HIGHLIGHTING THE ‘UNSUNG HEROES’ OF THE MEDICAL FIELD

Dr. Alan Wu

A Snapshot of Dr. Alan Wu’s 6 Books

Author of six books approached to create a CSI-style medical mystery TV series.

I am looking to create a unique television show that provides a behind-the-scenes look at medicine through the eyes of a clinical lab director, instead of the usual focus on doctors and nurses.”

— Dr. Alan Wu

SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA, USA, September 22, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Dr. Alan Wu, lauded professor of laboratory medicine at the University of California, San Francisco, sought-after speaker, and lab director at the Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital, is adapting the stories from his six books into a TV series.

The series will be a serialized drama following a lab director as she directs a team of chemists, toxicologists, and microbiologists to provide critical lab information to doctors and their patients. It will present real medical cases and show how the lab staff uses science to solve medical mysteries as patients’ lives hang in the balance.

The reviews speak for themselves : Spellbinding…This is definitely a 5-star read… A friend recommended this book to me, and once I started reading it, it was so hard to put down… This book completely changed the way I think about [everything] … These riveting short stories expose you to the inner world of laboratory medicine…Unlike predictable books and movies where everything magically works out in the end, you never know what’s going to happen. This makes the book intense and full of uncertainty…I had no intention of reading them all in one day when I started… As entertaining as the best mystery novels.

One of the inspirations for the main character is Wu’s lab director, Dr. Barb Haller, who led the COVID-19 testing team at San Francisco General Hospital. Their efforts have contributed to San Francisco having the lowest COVID death rate of any major US city, only 600 total.

Dr. Wu was quoted in a USA Today article published on August 10, 2021 about a study showing that antibody levels my pave the way for new vaccines or boosters protecting against variants. Wu calls his lab staff the “unsung heroes” of the COVID-19 epidemic, adding that part of his motivation for creating the show is to bring them into the limelight to receive the attention they deserve.

“The inability to obtain test results was the single factor most responsible for the failure of managing the COVID-19 pandemic. Before the pandemic, few people appreciated what the clinical lab did to help doctors and their patients. I am looking to create a unique television show that provides a behind-the-scenes look at medicine through the eyes of a clinical lab director, instead of the usual focus on doctors and nurses. Samples are not just sent and an answer magically appears on a computer. The series captures the true tension and drama that we face, not just daily, but second to second.” Wu said.

The series has the high stakes drama of CSI and House and hopes that bringing attention to this critical field—over 70% of all medical decisions are based on clinical laboratory tests—will raise public awareness into its importance for everyone’s health.

He is currently shopping for a network or streaming service.

About Dr. Alan Wu: Professor of Laboratory Medicine at the University of California, San Francisco and lab director at the Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital, Dr. Wu has written over 450 scientific articles and 10 books in the field. He is also the author of six books consisting of over a hundred short stories about lab medicine.

Acclaimed Author, George H. Hassanzadeh Shares His Newest Poem, The Last Jew of Babylon

George H. Hassanzadeh

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, September 22, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — According to CNN, the last known member of Afghanistan's Jewish community left the country on Friday, taking 30 other people with him — including 28 women and children — on a five-day mission to safety, according to the group who carried out the evacuation.

Pre-Islam was perhaps the only time that Iranians of different faith lived side by side in peaceful harmony. Christians and Jews were solid citizens of Persia centuries before the advent of Arab Islam. According to Persian historians, pre-Islam was the most inspiring and joyful time in pre-modern Persia. Rituals were shared by those of different faiths. Often person of one denomination, inspired by festive activities, exchanged gifts and participated in other people's joyful celebrations.

The arrival of Arab Islam in Iran meant an end to culture, cultural diversity, and interfaith harmony. Arab Islam in Iran has been openly in direct conflict with Judaism, Baha’ism, and Christianity.

In the year 586 BC, Jews were displaced from their land in Israel and sent into captivity to Babylon by the Babylonian king Nebuchadnezzar after he destroyed their temple and kingdom in Jerusalem. A few years later, the emperor of Persia Cyrus the Great, conquered Babylon and freed the Jews. Cyrus facilitated the return of the Jews to their homeland and ordered the rebuilding of their temple in Jerusalem.

In the following words, the late Iranian poet Ferydoon Moshiri summed up the Islamic Revolution and the Arab Shari’a Law under the Taliban: “The talk is not of the withering of leaves, but rather turning the forest into desert. What these beasts are doing to mankind, animals do not do to each other.”

Iranian Jewish mother wrote to her son who was studying in America days after the new Islamic leader Ruhollah Khomeini took over her nation and establish ‘the Islamic Republic of Iran’…

My dearest son Bahman, although I miss you much, I am so happy that you are safe and blessed to be in America.

Life goes on in here though much different. The unpredicted Arab Shari’a has become the law of the land.

Dearest, in his poem, Ahmad Shamlu describes Iranian’s new way of life under the Shari’a much better than I could ever explain. Here it goes:

They smell your breath,
You better not have said, “I love you.”
They smell your heart,
These are strange times, dearest …
And they flog love at the roadblock/barricade …
We had better hide love in the closet …
In this crooked dead end and twisted chill,
They feed fires with the kindling of song and poetry.
Do not risk a thought.
These are strange times, dearest …
He who comes to the door at midnight
He has come to kill the light.
We had better hide the light in the closet …
Those there are butchers stationed at the crossroads with carving boards and cleavers.
These are strange times, dearest …
And they excise smiles from lips and songs from mouths.
We better hide joy in the closet …
Canaries barbecued on fire of lilies and jasmines.
These are strange times, dearest …
Satan, drunk with victory sits at our funeral feast.
We had better hide God in the closet …
These are strange times, my dearest son …

Internationally recognized as an expert in Islamic matters, George H. Hassanzadeh born and raised as a Shi’a Muslim in Iran is the author of ‘Iran: Harsh Arm of Islam’ and the newly released book ‘First Comes the Mosque.’ Hassanzadeh is a renowned authority on Shi’a, Shari’a, and the infallible Arab Shiite clerics forcing medieval rule and a system of mind control in the 21st century.

George H. Hassanzadeh is a U.S. Army Veteran and lives in California, U.S.A

Rosemary Attor runs a successful practice in Hoboken, New Jersey. She has over 20 employees, and she wants their mental health to be 100%.

If I have happy and well-rested employees, they will perform at a higher level for our clients. It's a no brainer really. Other countries do this for a reason. ”

— Rosemary Attor

HOBOKEN, NEW JERSEY, USA, September 22, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Rosemary Attor is changing how things are getting done within her business. Like many thriving start-ups, there is a sense to want to work too long and too hard. But Rosemary noticed that work was slipping. Yes her employees were workaholics, but was it actually translating to high quality work? She was not pleased with her due diligence into the situation, and made some changes that other businesses are starting to utilize across the country.

What has long been discussed and practiced in other countries like Iceland and Sweden, and for generations in Europe with their lunch time nap, America has decided to ignore the conversation. Until now. Rosemary Attor is now amongst hundreds of businesses who are giving their employees unlimited vacation days (within reason of course), flexible work schedules, benefits, half day Fridays. Going from 50-60 hours a week to 35 is a huge difference for for a young paralegal mother. She won't be stressed, tired and unhappy. She will be rested and happy. And she will perform the best work that way, says Rosemary.

Mental Health in the Legal Industry

One of the most popular careers in America is law. This is not only because it's financially lucrative but also because it offers a great opportunity to give back to the community and positively impact lives. It's also popular because it provides a wide range of positions to choose from, such as paralegal, mediator, legal assistant, and of course the most popular- lawyer. However, studies show that lawyers and others in the legal profession are highly affected by mental health issues.

The law industry is a high-pressure environment starting from school into the workplace involving long working hours and deadlines. Lawyers are also exposed to tragic information, violence, and other disturbing material on a day-to-day basis. Reports show that approximately 28% of lawyers struggle with addiction, and 15% reported having suicidal ideations. The Covid 19 pandemic has further added to the existing pressure leading to poor mental health among both the general population and lawyers.

Here are some proven ways to improve your mental health and keep away burnout as a lawyer.

Get adequate sleep and rest regularly.
While the temptation to work round the clock may be present, it's important to take time off and get an adequate amount of sleep. Sleep is good for your mind and body and gives the body time to repair itself. You can't get much done when you are exhausted and sleep-deprived. On the contrary, productivity is reduced, and you could end up with serious health issues. There are tons of benefits associated with getting adequate amounts of sleep.

Physical activity and proper nutrition
When it comes to what we eat, the phrase Garbage in Garbage Out applies. Studies have found that more deficient diets result in poor mental health and associated health issues such as obesity, diabetes, sleep apnea, etc. These reduce productivity and add stress to the already stressful work environment where most lawyers operate. Diets rich in whole foods, fruits, and vegetables are good for both mental and physical wellness. Minimize alcohol intake and if you can avoid smoking too. Incorporating exercise can also help boost moods, mental alertness and increase energy levels.

Establish meaningful relationships and a healthy support system
Support is great for your mental health. Having people, you can talk to will go a long way in helping you release frustrations and get a different perspective on things. Relationships can help take your mind off work-related stress. Support can also come from external sources such as professional counselors or therapists, mentors, or someone you look up to.

Evaluate your Whys
Analyzing your reasons for choosing a career as a law professional can help you have a different mindset. For instance, positively changing someone's life can give meaning to what you do and help you work through the difficult patches.

Maintain a healthy work-life balance
While your job may be necessary, it's essential to care equally for other parts of your life. Take some time off to do the things you like, such as hobbies. Ride a bike, take up gardening, visit one of the places on your bucket list. This is a great way to beat burnout and have a little fun.
