Library Director Riti Grover shares how using Gale Engage can help your public library adapt to changes in technology and run efficiently.

FARMINGTON HILLS, MICHIGAN, UNITED STATES, October 22, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Libraries are a great place for seeking knowledge, learning, doing research, and improving academically, socially, and so on. Public Libraries have to constantly evolve, according to Riti Grover, especially with our constantly evolving communities with varying desires and needs. Luckily, data gathering and analyzing tools are available for library directors and management to implement for effective engagement with library patrons.

One of such tools is Gale Engage, a powerful data processing tool explicitly created to help increase efficiency in any public library. Gale engage is designed for effective library management, marketing, and data analysis. It offers visualization features that make it easy for library staff to figure out what their users need, changing trends in library usage at the local level, and the best way to provide services to their patrons. The tool can help inspire library staff to be more creative and increase their customer engagement and service. With this, library teams can now focus their attention on the community and their essential needs.

Many library communities and institutions use Gale Engage to increase engagement and efficiency, and a great example is Riti Grover, former director at Farmington (Mich.) Community Library. Riti is famous for her innovative, inspiring, and creative approach to improving library engagement and offering library users the best experience. Since implementing Gale Engage in the libraries under her management, they have gained a tool to analyze the collection usage and program attendance data. This tool can now help them get books, ebooks, audiobooks, magazines, DVDs, databases, and programs according to their patron’s needs. They could also market their services to potential users. It’s not easy to fully comprehend how Gale Engage works, but Riti Grover was aware of the work ahead of her right from the beginning. With her determination and consistency, she ensured that her staff had a complete understanding of the tools and could feed the available data into it to produce a result they could effectively use.

Riti Grover and the Farmington (Mich.) Community Library has trained a team to upload, assess, analyze, and interpret the data with Gale Engage. With every day of use, their efficiency and capability are growing. Thanks to this life-changing technology, the library community can now better respond to the requests and needs of patrons.

There are several reasons why Gale Engage is a must for any library community that wants to meet the demands of modern-day library users. The tool is ever ready to accept and analyze data, as long as the library management is prepared to upload it. Collection usage of digital content like eBooks, streaming services, and databases is provided to help library management understand how users engage with their platforms. The usage patterns can then be studied and analyzed to understand users’ needs and predict their subsequent expectations.

Gale Engage tools provide a fully immersive experience that helps libraries ultimately view their community demographics to create the perfect marketing outreach. It has a customizable dashboard with visualization capabilities that allow library staff to understand everything going on at a glance. The dashboard makes it super easy to analyze reports properly to make informed decisions that further increase engagement. Based on activities, the platform automatically groups patrons to allow for effective program outreach.

Email is a powerful tool for target-marketing new products and services, informing, educating, and inspiring library cardholders. The email features on Gale Engage are game-changing, helping to improve digital marketing for libraries. It also has social media management tools to engage library users and help other people discover innovative resources for other prospective library patrons by taking advantage of the power of social media. All information on Gale Engage is private and secured, with a guarantee of protecting the user’s data and identification.

Recovery Coach Dr. Bob Weathers to be Featured on Close Up Radio

NEWPORT COAST, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, October 21, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The stereotypical image of people who are addicted to alcohol and drugs as down and out does not always apply. Sometimes the problems are beneath the surface and behind closed doors.

Dr. Bob Weathers is a recovery coach who understands addiction from the inside.

Prior to becoming a recovery coach, Dr. Weathers was a highly regarded professor of psychology. Unfortunately, he would eventually descend into increasing, mid-life addiction to alcohol and other drugs over a period of 15 years, finally losing his tenured academic position.

“It was devastating because I felt so called to be a teacher,” says Dr. Weathers. “In hindsight, I can see it was the result of a combination of failed relationships, unworked-through trauma from early development, and even my daughter’s growing up and leaving home. The irony is that I was the Golden Boy. I’d never even smoked a cigarette until I was 40.”

One would think having lost everything of value would get his attention, but Dr. Weathers’ addiction only got worse. When he finally awoke from this bad dream, he realized he needed to change radically, and like a phoenix rising from the ashes, Dr Weathers gradually got his life back.

“People have different destinies,” says Dr. Weathers. “It seems I just had to endure some extremely painful learning lessons to be able to get to where I am today.”

Upon his recovery, Dr. Weathers wondered if there might be a way he could apply his clinical background in psychology to help others recover from addictions of any kind and at any time of life, young or old.

Today, Dr. Weathers is a recovery coach and addiction educator who works with professionals of all stripes. Many of these clients are successful lawyers, doctors, and business executives: people who no one would never expect to be struggling with addiction.

“For the clients that I work with, their addictive behavior has been going on completely in the shadows. They’re ashamed of it, secretive about it, and they don’t get help because of that.” says Dr. Weathers. “Shame is public enemy number one in terms of mental health. If a person doesn’t conquer shame, they won’t make forward progress in their recovery. I work with clients to navigate the shame of their addiction with self-compassion.”

Close Up Radio will feature Dr. Bob Weathers in an interview with Jim Masters on October 25th and November 1st at 12pm EDT

BELLINGHAM, WA, US, October 20, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Visit Bellingham | Whatcom County announces the release of the third of three video segments hosted by Rick Steves which feature his explorations of Whatcom County, Washington. Episode three, “Arts & Culture,” shows Steves exploring the Fairhaven and Downtown Arts Districts of Bellingham, touring exhibits, and even soaking up some historic maritime culture in the uppermost Pacific Northwest. Produced and distributed by Seattle Times Content Studio, the third of the three episodes is now live on Seattle Times’ Website (https://www.seattletimes.com/sponsored/rick-steves-discovers-arts-and-culture-in-whatcom-county-washington/) and also at https://www.Bellingham.org/ricksteves.

This segment also features a work by Lummi Nation member and Washington State Poet Laureate Rena Priest. Priest is Washington’s first indigenous state poet laureate, and she reads an original piece in the episode set to the sweeping backdrop of the ancestral homelands of the Coast Salish People who have lived in the Salish Sea basin since time immemorial. Priest visited Steves in his Edmonds, Washington studio to record her poem.

As an example of what is in all three segments, Steves visits a working oyster farm (Drayton Harbor Oyster Farm), learns about turning Washington apples into alcohol (Bellewood Farms), and actually plays an original 1927 movie palace Wurlitzer pipe organ (Mount Baker Theatre). Steves’ fans can find all three videos at Bellingham.org/RickSteves.

Whatcom County is in the top northwest corner of the state of Washington, bordering both Canada and the Salish Sea.

The videos were filmed, directed, and produced by All is Well Studios out of Seattle, WA, under the creative direction of Seattle Times Content Studio, Rick Steves, and Visit Bellingham | Whatcom County.

Bellingham Whatcom County Tourism is an independent, 501 (c)(6) nonprofit economic development organization whose purpose is to improve the economy by marketing Bellingham Whatcom County as a premier, year-round visitor, sports, outdoor recreation, arts and cultural, and meetings destination, which supports all travel, tourism, and hospitality businesses and nonprofits in Whatcom County.
