    Particularly now, when history-making events seem to come with every news cycle, the working librarian needs a basic understanding of the history of the health sciences to make sense of where we are and how we got here. This webinar series will address four topics of current interest, place them in their historical context, and give guidance in providing both brief and in-depth answers to internal and external inquiries.

    The four topics are (1) Evidence-based medicine and practice; (2) Health care disparities; (3) Plagues and pandemics; and (4) They also serve: nurses, librarians, and other health professionals.

    In a broader sense, the series will also provide a template for independent research into other topics in the history of the health sciences.

    This is part 1 of a special 2-part webinar

    Learning Outcomes

    At the end of the webinar series, participants will be able to:

    Be able to place the four specified topics in a broader perspective in the history of the health sciences.

    Understand better how the historical record affects current-day themes and issues in medical research and in the provision of health care.

    Be familiar with medical and non-medical research resources for these and other topics in the history of the health sciences.

    Audience
    The course is targeted to reference, outreach, and public service librarians, but it will be of use to ANY librarians or archivists seeking to better understand their collections.

    Presenter

    Stephen Greenberg, AHIP, received his doctorate in Early Modern History from Fordham University in 1983 with a dissertation on early printing and publishing.

Since 1992, he has worked in the History of Medicine Division at the US National Library of Medicine where he is currently heads the Rare Books and Early Manuscripts Section. His research and publications span a number of fields, including the history of printing and publishing, the social history of medicine, the history of medical librarianship, and the history of medical photography. In the past few months, his publications have ranged from the historiography of medicine in the 20th century, the history and future of library card catalogues, the influence of Florence Nightingale on the occasion of her 200th birthday, and the history of medicine in the “Outlander” books and TV series.

    Dr. Greenberg is a past chair of the Medical Library Association (MLA) History of the Health Sciences Section and past president of Archivists and Librarians in the History of the Health Sciences (ALHHS). He has lectured and taught nationwide through such groups as the NIH Speaker’s Bureau, the Medical Library Association’ Continuing Education Program, and Rare Book School at the University of Virginia. He is a Distinguished Member of the Academy of Health Information Professionals (AHIP), and the recipient of numerous awards, including the ALHHS Publication Award (2011) and National Institutes of Health Award of Merit in 2013. In 2018, Dr. Greenberg received the ALHHS Lisabeth E. Holloway Award “for significant contributions through leadership and service to ALHHS and the profession.”

    Dr. Greenberg is also an adjunct professor at both the Catholic University of America and the College of Library and Information Studies at the University of Maryland (College Park) where he lectures on the history and curatorship of rare books.

    The NASA and the Navajo Nation Partnership is an ongoing collaboration that has facilitated the co-creation of numerous educational materials, workshops, and camps for Navajo youth. Their work flows from the understanding that Indigenous knowledge systems and Western science reflect, resonate with, and reinforce one another, and affirm each other as valid, valuable, and vital. NASA's Culturally-Based, Dual-Learning methodology prioritizes Indigenous knowledge – which is taught first in the programs, always and only by Indigenous educators and Elders, using Indigenous languages and pedagogies, in Indigenous places. Afterward, corresponding Western STEM concepts are conveyed by experts in those fields. This method reinforces for Native youth that their cultural knowledge systems, practices, and technologies, are important, sophisticated, alive and well, and hold information that is just being explored by the Western STEM fields today. This provides a critical lens and asset-based perspective from which to be grounded as they approach the learning of Western STEM.

    Presenter Daniella Scalice is the Education and Communications Lead for NASA’s Astrobiology Program. Her background is in molecular biology and filmmaking. Her work is devoted to ensuring youth of all colors, cultures, genders, abilities, walks of life, and ways of loving and praying have equal access to opportunities in STEM, and are supported to excel in everything they do, especially toward healthy social, cultural, and economic lifeways. Daniella lives and works on the lands of the Piscataway People in the occupied territories known today as Annapolis, Maryland.

    This program is being presented in cooperation with NASA's Solar System Ambassador program. For more information on the program, visit https://solarsystem1.jpl.nasa.gov/ssa/home.cfm

    Attendees of this presentation will leave with not only a greater understanding of the LGBTQ community, but a clear vision of what it means to create an affirming environment in a library setting.

    This workshop details the importance of libraries in social movements, the impact of literature on the LGBTQ community, foundational information about the LGBTQ community, various identities within the community, a breakdown of gender, and details about the transition process.

    The most culturally relevant statistics and research is presented to best paint a picture of the current state of homophobia, biphobia and transphobia in the country today. The presenter then provides action steps and specific examples on how to not only be a passive ally, but an active advocate for the community in one’s workspace. This presentation gives plenty of space for open discussion, honest questions, and self disclosure.

    LILRC welcomes digital anthropologist Frank Rose, speaking on his new book, The Sea We Swim In: How Stories Work in a Data-Driven World, a practical guide to "narrative thinking," and why it matters in a world defined by data.

    “Whether we’re aware of it or not, stories determine how we view the world and our place in it. That means the tools of professional storytellers―character, world, detail, voice―can unlock a way of thinking that’s ideal for an age in which we don’t passively consume media but actively participate in it. Building on insights from cognitive psychology and neuroscience, Rose shows us how to see the world in narrative terms, not as a thesis to be argued or a pitch to be made but as a story to be told.”

    About Frank Rose:

    Frank Rose is the best-selling author of The Art of Immersion, hailed as “a grand trip” by Britain's New Scientist and “an essential overview” by the International Journal of Advertising. He is a lead­ing think­er on the im­pact of tech­nol­ogy on media, enter­tain­ment, and so­ci­ety — a theme he has explored as a contributor to The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal, as a former contributing editor at Wired, and as a key­note speaker at mar­ket­ing con­fer­ences and film festi­vals world­wide.

    A senior fel­low at Colum­bia Uni­ver­sity School of the Arts, Frank is faculty director of its Strategic Story­telling seminar, presented in part­ner­ship with Colum­bia Business School Executive Education, and director of the Digital Dozen: Breakthroughs in Storytelling awards at its Digital Story­telling Lab.

    In the 21st century there is a constant rise in library patron needs and expectations. As dwindling budgets and less staff prevail, libraries are looking at new models of outreach and engagement to prove their value. Looking through a “creative” lens focuses on “what is possible” and encourages individuals and organizations to work in unconventional ways while using tools which are readily and easily accessible for teaching, learning, or solving problems.

    Creativity and playful experiences can be freeing and allow for spontaneity, which is crucial when performing scholarly research, solving problems, or honing life-long learning skills. But also, these casual teaching moments provide opportunities for patrons to engage with library staff in non-traditional ways. Playful learning is a dynamic and creative way to highlight collections and services which can also be assessed to help capture and share the value and importance of an organization.

    Throughout this presentation viewers will learn more about creativity in libraries, the skills and tools needed to “be creative”, and how to implement and embrace a culture of creativity within their own work lives.

    Presenter: Megan Lotts is the Art Librarian at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, where she teaches research workshops, builds collections, facilitates programming and events, and closely engages with students and faculty researching in the Arts. Lotts has presented her research both nationally and internationally and has published articles in portal: Libraries and the Academy, Art Documentation, Journal of Library Administration, and College and Research Libraries News. Her first book titled, Advancing a Culture of Creativity in Libraries: Programming and Engagement, will be published by American Libraries Association and available in July of 2021. Her research interests include creativity, outreach & engagement, makerspaces, play, and the work of library liaisons. She is known for her work implementing LEGO® play, curating the exhibition spaces at the Rutgers University Art Library, as well as teaching a semester long seminar “Playing to Learn in Higher Education.”

    Megan earned her MFA (2004) and MLIS (2007) from University of Wisconsin-Madison and has a BFA in Painting (2000) and BFA in Art History (2002) from the University of Illinois- Champaign-Urbana. She currently lives in New Brunswick, NJ where she continues to explore, make, and engage in daily activities involving creativity and play.

    The motto of the disability-rights community is “nothing about us without us,” yet few libraries think to give people with these disabilities a role in program planning or include them fully in the library community. This session will explain how listening to disability self-advocates and creating a culture of inclusion are critical elements in programming that is successful, fun, and works for everyone.

    For tenure track librarians, the tenure review is a critical milestone with significant implications for them and their library. It is essential that the criteria set forth are clear and fair. Requirements related to the concept of “collegiality” have been a source of concern in terms of the purpose for their inclusion, the fairness with which they are applied, and the means by which they can be judged or measured. The researchers reviewed the history of collegiality in tenure, and then explored the current practice by analyzing librarian tenure guidelines. This session will explore the prevalence and diversity of representations of collegiality in R-1 university libraries’ promotion and tenure guidelines.

    Academic libraries have long strived to uphold organizational and field-wide values of diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility. Many prominent programs have been developed in response to these values, most notably in an effort to diversify the field, and over the last year in particular, racial justice initiatives have taken greater hold. However, sufficient progress on these stated values has often been unrealized.

    Ithaka S+R will offer a 1.5 hour workshop on library strategy in light of long-standing efforts to diversify the field and more recent national movements for racial justice. Ithaka S+R workshop leads will share context and history on the library field as well as recent research on leadership perspectives and local practices. Attendees will have the opportunity to participate in several interactive reflection exercises, including an activity where they will interrogate their own strategic plans for strengths and shortcomings.

    The program will begin by establishing a shared set of definitions for key terms such as equity, diversity, inclusion, accessibility, and anti-racism. Ithaka S+R leads will then present findings from a recent national study of library directors as well as large-scale analyses of library strategic plans and job descriptions. Attendees will reflect on relevant strategies that they see as well-developed either at their home institution or a peer organization.

    Attendees will be asked to bring to the session their library’s strategic plan, or that from another LILRC member institution, and will be guided by Ithaka S+R leads through a series of reflective questions, based on our anti-racism audit services with academic libraries, on the extent to which key terms appear as well as strategies for greater prioritization and operationalization. The session will conclude with several attendees sharing their insights back with the group and with plenty of time for broader Q&A.

    Learning outcomes
    -As a result of this program, attendees will be able to:
    -Explain and differentiate between issues of equity, diversity, inclusion, accessibility, and anti-racism
    -Learn about national trends and challenges facing the library field
    -Gain assessment skills for examining local institutional policies, practices, and outcomes

    Technology is an invaluable tool in the mission to make our society fully equitable, diverse and inclusive. In this session, Kelvin Watson, Executive Director, Las Vegas-Clark County Library District, will discuss how the 38-branch Broward County Library system (his previous library system) used technology in their quest to achieve those goals, and how he plans to increase the technology offerings at the Las Vegas-Clark County Library District, and suggest how other cultural and educational institutions may do so also.

    Technology has been a means of outreach to “invite the uninvited” and extend our values into the community at large. This presentation will explore successfully harnessing technology to philosophy in service to our beliefs about equity, diversity and inclusion.

    Presenter:
    As the new executive director of the Las Vegas-Clark County Library District, Kelvin Watson brings innovative, award-winning leadership to Nevada’s largest library system. Watson oversees 25 branches spanning 8,000 square miles, a budget of $77 million, 700 employees, and a collection of 3.2 million items. Mr. Watson joined the Library District from his role as the director of the Broward County Libraries. Regarded as one of the most highly respected thought leaders in the library industry, he is credited with expanding his customer base in past library management roles, through outreach efforts to underserved and diverse populations.

    He was named the 2021 winner of the Margaret E. Monroe Library Adult Services Award, for his dedication to implementing new and innovative ways to meet customers – both existing and new – “where they are,” with initiatives targeting non-traditional library users. Under his leadership, the Florida Library Association (FLA) named Broward County Libraries as the 2020 Library of the Year; FLA named Mr. Watson as the 2019 Librarian of the Year; and the American Library Association (ALA) named the Broward County Libraries as the Library of the Future, all of which he credits to the work of his staff.

    Kugel and Frijoles: Latino Jews in the United States analyzes the changing construction of race and ethnicity in the United States through the lens of contemporary Jewish immigrants from Latin America. Since Latino Jews are not easily classified within the U.S. racial and ethnic schema, their ethnic identity and group affiliation challenge existing paradigms.

    This presentation introduces the stories of Latino Jewish immigrants and lays out the important questions surrounding ethnic identity: How do Latino Jews identify? Can they choose their identity or is it assigned to them? How is ethnicity strategic or instrumental?Presenter Laura Limonic illustrates how groups can be constructed when there is a lack of a perfect host group and detail the ways different factors influence ethnic identity and shape membership into ethnic groups affecting the trajectory of immigrant incorporation.

    Presenter: Laura Limonic is an Assistant Professor of Sociology at the College of Old Westbury of the State University of New York. Her research is in the area of contemporary immigration to the United States and the integration trajectories of ethnic and ethno-religious groups. Her recent book on Latino Jews in the United States was honored as the 2019 best book by the Latin American Jewish Studies Association. The book explores issues of ethnicity, race, class and religious community building among Latino Jewish immigrants in Boston, New York, Miami and Southern California. Her work has been supported by the Berman Foundation and the Association of Jewish Studies.Limonic is currently working a new project funded by the Templeton Trust’s Global Research Religion Initiative. This research examines the rise of Chabad-Lubavitch in Latin America and the role played by transnational migrants within the movement. ​

    Limonic received her PhD in Sociology from the CUNY Graduate Center in 2014. She has a Bachelor of Arts degree in Latin American Studies from Brandeis University and a Master of International Affairs degree from Columbia University.
