    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.

    Jacob Nadal, Director for Preservation at the Library of Congress, will present the outcomes of the REALM: Reopening Archives, Libraries and Museums project and discuss how libraries are using this scientific knowledge to inform safe operating practices. A remarkable amount of research has been conducted on the novel coronavirus but this is still a very new and rapidly developing body of knowledge. All libraries, the Library of Congress included, need to consider how scientific literacy, risk management, and mission play into their operating plans. This talk will help to frame these issues and provide an opportunity for discussion.

    Presenter: Jacob Nadal is the Director for Preservation at the Library of Congress. He was appointed to the position in July 2017. Nadal manages the work of the Directorate’s five Divisions — Binding and Collections Care, Collections Management, Conservation, Reformatting, and Research and Testing — and provides leadership for the Library’s stewardship of the national collections.

    Recent events have highlighted the structural racism and prejudices that continue to exist in society. The Long Island Library Resources Council recognizes and acknowledges the systemic discrimination that exists. The Council believes people have a right to be free from discrimination based on race, ethnicity, national origin, gender identity, sexual orientation, or any other status.

    This year's Annual Conference on Libraries and the Future: Diversity, Democracy, and Engagement will confront these issues with three excellent speakers. Our keynote speaker, Nancy Kranich, special projects research librarian and faculty at Rutgers University, will examine engagement in libraries. V. Elaine Gross, President of Erase Racism, will discuss promoting diversity in libraries. Ryan Dowd, author of The Librarian’s Guide to Homelessness, will provide a condensed version of his workshop on how libraries can better serve the homeless. Each of these speakers will round out a program that brings attention to how libraries can serve different populations and how libraries can serve as community centers leading the way for change in society.

    This workshop would be a working session to delve into the specific ways libraries can provide effective programming with intentionality and authenticity. Facilitated dialogue and activities to collectively address what programming and events could be presented with the most impact.

    Tools will also be provided to assess what direction to go for your library appropriately. There are not many spaces where diverse groups can congregate to discuss issues like these, and libraries could consider how to be that space in the community. 

    Some areas that may be considered include young adult programming, family engagement, guest speakers, film viewings and book clubs and discussions, etc.

    Presented by: Danielle Asher
    Danielle Asher is a proud graduate of SUNY Empire State College with a B.A. in Public Affairs concentrating in Social Justice, Advocacy, and Gender.

    As a librarian, you are a teacher. In just about everything you do, from answering reference questions, doing library orientation sessions, and responding to search requests, to formal teaching, you teach. And you teach adults. This webinar will show you how to apply the work of major adult learning theorists, particularly Malcolm Knowles’s work on andragogy, to improve your teaching in all settings. You’ll leave with practical ideas that help you teach more effectively and with greater personal satisfaction.

    Learning Outcomes

    At the end of this session attendees will be able to:

    1) Apply learning theories to address specific problems and characteristics of adult learners in a range of settings
    2) Create effective instruction for adults
    3) Reflect on their own teaching strategies and modify them to be more effective

    Audience
    Librarians who teach, orient library users, or instruct staff on new tools and resources. Beginners are welcome.

    This registration is for the live webinar only and does not provide MLA CE hours. This will NOT be recorded.

    Medical librarians, please contact Sally Stieglitz @sstieglitz@lilrc.org to learn how to participate with a MLA site code that supports MLA continuing education contact hours.

    Confucius said: “Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.” There are those who are consistent high performers. There are those who excel at maintaining a sense of calm and rarely react to stress. Considering the on-the-job stress, interpersonal challenges at work, how do we hear the words of Confucius and have a job we love; so that ultimately, we can feel motivated and motivate others?

    We will look at filling your EI toolbox with skills needed to build a bridge between the cognitive brain and the emotional brain to have higher workplace satisfaction.

    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.

    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.
