    Scrapbooking is the art of decorating pages with mementos, hand written and printed materials, and ephemera from the events that have touched our lives.  Unfortunately, your collection's scrapbooks might be at risk due to the types of materials used or from improper storage.

    Amy Driscoll, Director of the North Shore Historical Museum, and Nicole Menchise, Regional Archivist for LILRC, will hold a workshop to discuss common materials found in scrapbooks and options for long term preservation.

    Attendees are encouraged to bring a scrapbook with them to discuss their individual challenges.

    Does your library preserve veterans’ memories of their military service? Would you like to share with your fellow librarians who also record veterans’ stories? Or, would you like to start a program at your library honoring our veterans by recording their histories? Please join us in a round-table discuss​ion​ as we exchange ideas, procedures and project management. 

    This round-table meeting will be led by Edna Susman, Reference Librarian & Veterans Testimonial Project (VTP) Director at the Half Hollow Hills Community Library.  The VTP has just entered its sixth year with over 120 veterans interviewed since 2014.  Edna will share how she started the project and grew it into a successful project to preserve and make accessible the personal accounts of American veterans so that future generations may hear directly from veterans and better understand the realities of war and military service.

    A panel of five librarians from academic and public librarianship will share advice and best practices for publishing articles and books in the field of library science. 

    A Path to Getting Published
    Jennifer A. DeVito, Director of Access & User Services, Stony Brook University Libraries

    The prospect of researching and writing for publication can be intimidating. For many of us, it’s a requirement to further our career and for some it’s a way to share knowledge and give back to the profession. While there isn’t one “right way” to getting academic work published, there are some ways that writers can identify topics on which to write, organize projects, locate sources for publication, and, importantly, finish and submit articles for publication.

    Making Your Writing Discoverable
    Clara Y. Tran, Head, Science and Engineering, Stony Brook University Libraries

    The advance of technology makes it much easier to promote and organize your newly-published articles online. Sharing your new publication link on social media is one great way to improve the visibility of your work. Evidently, the rapid growth and development of researcher networking systems and social networking platforms plays an important role in improving the connection of researchers academically and socially. This presentation will discuss some useful tools used in researcher networking systems such as ORCID and Google Scholar profiles, and social networking platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn, that can maximize your article’s visibility.

    Chris DeCristafaro, Technology Librarian and Coordinator, Sachem Public Library
    James Hutter, Head of Computer Services, Port Washington Public Library
