    The Historic Furnishing of Theodore Roosevelt’s Home, Sagamore Hill National Historic Site.

    Join Susan Sarna for a behind the scenes look at the research involved in implementing Sagamore Hill’s Historic Furnishing plan. The home has gone through two major renovations and several updates to the furnishings in the 67 years as a museum. As Curator, Susan has always felt that her number one priority at Sagamore Hill is the protection and the historic accuracy of the Roosevelt Home and its contents. As the project manager of the 2015 renovation of the Home and the collection her main goal was the National Park Service’s motto: to preserve unimpaired the natural and cultural resources and values of the national park system for the enjoyment, education, and inspiration of this and future generations.

    Susan Sarna has spent 31 years protecting, conserving, researching and educating people about the life and times of Theodore Roosevelt and his family. Her work has been informed by her studies in both Public History and Education and having studied in the U.S. and England. Before working for the National Park Service she was a high school teacher and is well-practiced in engaging minds of all ages.

    During this interruption of our normal working day, Nicole Menchise is creating live Zoom 'workshops' for the benefit of anyone interested in best practices for preservation of items at home or work.  The workshops are a combination of slides shared on the screen and hands-on techniques.

    These webinars are for those interested in getting some practical, professional advice about how to preserve your personal family archives, or are looking to learn something to bring back to their organizations.  Plan to budget 60 minutes for each meeting in order to have ample time to cover the topic and to answer comments and questions during and after the webinar.  

    As the Digitization and Archives Coordinator for LILRC, Menchise is basing these webinars on some elements of the preservation workshops she has done in the past.  The inspiration came from the "Ask An Archivist" segment she writes for the Long Island Archives Newsletter published bi-monthly for LILRC.  To see the past issues and other publications from LILRC, go to https://lilrc.org/Newsletters.

    What's an anti-racist library? And why should we be trying to build one? Simply put, an anti-racist library is one that actively works to dismantle racism and promote equality. How can we build one when we can find racial bias all over our libraries-- in our collections, our discovery systems, and our interactions with patrons and other staff? In this workshop, we'll talk about identifying and addressing microaggressions, implicit bias, and biased library systems, in pursuit of building an anti-racist library. Because an anti-racist library is a better library for our patrons, our staff, and our world.

    Presenter: Molly Higgins is currently a Reference and Digital Services Librarian and the Library of Congress, Congressional Research Service. She has previously worked at Stony Brook University’s Health Science Library and the University of Massachusetts Medical School’s Lamar Soutter Library.

    MEDLI: Medical and Scientific Libraries of Long Island

    Rapid publication of results -- particularly on preprint servers -- has grown dramatically during the COVID-19 pandemic, and has forced researchers, health care professionals, journalists -- and yes, librarians -- to grapple with the concept of reliable and actionable information. The pandemic has given rise to more than 30 retractions at the time of this writing. Is that cause for concern?

    Presenter: Ivan Oransky, MD, is vice president of editorial at Medscape, co-founder of Retraction Watch, and distinguished writer in residence at New York University's Arthur Carter Journalism Institute. His lens for this talk will be ten years of experience reporting on retractions for Retraction Watch, including creating the world’s most comprehensive database of retractions, with more than 22,000 and counting.

    Join LILRC in welcoming Janice P. Nimura, author of the upcoming book, The Doctors Blackwell: How Two Pioneering Sisters Brought Medicine to Women and Women to Medicine (W. W. Norton & Company, January 19, 2021).

    "The world recoiled at the notion of a woman doctor, yet Elizabeth Blackwell persisted―in 1849, she became the first woman in America to receive an MD. Her achievement made her an icon―“I am convinced that a new & nobler era is dawning, for Medicine,” she wrote―but her sister Emily, eternally eclipsed, was the more brilliant physician. Together they founded the first hospital staffed entirely by women, in New York City."
    https://www.janicenimura.com/doctors-blackwell/

    Janice P. Nimura received a Public Scholar Award from the National Endowment for the Humanities in support of her work on The Doctors Blackwell. Her previous book, Daughters of the Samurai: A Journey from East to West and Back, was a New York Times Notable book in 2015. Her essays and book reviews have appeared in the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Los Angeles Times, the Chicago Tribune, Salon, and LitHub, among other publications

    "I never learned this in library school" is a common refrain from librarians as they take on leadership and management responsibilities throughout their careers. We all too often assume that effective and strong leaders are born and not made. That assumption can lead to feelings of imposter syndrome and a general distaste for serving in leadership and management positions. Given the lack of formal training, all too many of us have worked for and with poor and even toxic leaders and managers. To break this cycle we need to bring the same intentionality to developing leadership and management skills as we do to the functional areas, like reference, cataloging, and outreach. In this workshop, participants will gain practical advice for how to develop themselves as leaders, and how to help foster a development culture in their libraries. The 90 minute session will begin with conclusions Birrell drew from her 2017 research project, and will include activities that will leave participants with an action plan for developing their skills and supporting others.

    Presenter Dr. Lori Birrell joined University of Arkansas Libraries in 2017 as Head of Special Collections. In 2019, she assumed the role of Associate Dean for Special Collections. In this role, Birrell provides strategic leadership of the division and its stewardship of archives and rare books to best serve the needs of researchers at the University and across the globe.

    Prior to coming to Arkansas, Birrell served for six years as the Special Collections Librarians for Historical Manuscripts at the University of Rochester. While at the University of Rochester, Birrell completed a Doctorate of Education with a focus on higher education administration and leadership. Her dissertation became the springboard for a monograph published by the Association of Research Libraries, Developing the Next Generation of Library Leaders.

    Birrell believes passionately in the idea that leaders are made and not born. She has served as a mentor to emerging leaders and new librarians, and has co-chaired the program committee for the inaugural Conference on Academic Library Management.
    Dr. Birrell earned a Masters of Library and Information Science from Simmons University, a Masters in History from the University of Massachusetts- Amherst, and a BA from Mount Holyoke College.
