    Graphic medicine, or the overlap of comics and healthcare, has emerged over the past decade from a once small, sporadically discussed idea to a burgeoning field of study and subgenre in its own right. For librarians, the growth of the field - which includes a National Library of Medicine exhibit, "Graphic Medicine: Ill-Conceived and Well Drawn!" - presents numerous opportunities, ranging from reinvigorating interest in physical collections to interactive programming and fun outreach possibilities. This talk will go beyond the "what" of graphic medicine to discuss "why" and "how" you can integrate comics into your library work. Matthew will share his experience developing the NNLM/NER Graphic Medicine Book Club Kits and all about the activities of the Graphic Medicine International Collective (GMIC), hosts of the annual Graphic Medicine conferences, GraphicMedicine.org, and more.

    Presenter: Matthew Noe (he/his) is Lead Collection & Knowledge Management Librarian at Countway Library, Harvard Medical School, where he specializes in graphic medicine and health humanities. He's heavily active in both ALA and MLA, including as a 2020 ALA Emerging Leader. He is a co-editor of GraphicMedicine.org, has received multiple grants to study and promote comics in medicine, and regularly speaks to anyone who will listen about comics librarianship.

    Please join Amy J. Peterson from bibliotheca at this live demo to learn everything about cloudLibrary digital eBook and eAudiobook platform by bibliotheca.

    The cloudLibrary app enhances the library borrowing experience and makes the overall library self-service experience better.  With three powerful modules, libraries can offer users an intuitive and engaging digital experience that seamlessly complements physical library circulation activities.  One module of the cloudLibrary app provides a touchless checkout which allows library users to scan the barcode of a physical item to check it out with their own smartphones.

    The cloudLibrary app helps a smaller library become larger without the extra cost. Digital demand is high right now and the forecast indicates its trajectory is certain.  The cloudLibrary platform outperforms others with a best-in-class app at a surprisingly low cost. Circs are higher with lower hold times because of the unique platform design and the support of sharing material state-wide. The efficiencies of this sharing model functioning as digital inter-library loan allow a library to respond to exponential demand even with uncertain budgets. 

    This short video illustrates a library using the cloudLibrary modules: https://vimeo.com/344570710.

    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.

    This program will be a round table discussion to bring together high school, academic and public librarians to talk about issues relating to student preparation for the new school year. Libraries faced a huge amount of uncertainty from COVID19 in the spring which continues into the fall. How can libraries insert themselves better into the curriculum to become active educational partners with classroom teachers? What has gone right in the crisis?  What have we learned and what opportunities are available in a new environment? What gaps have you noticed as you pivoted to remote education? How did you engage administration in support of libraries? Were you not able to do this?

    We will also be soliciting potential questions for discussion ahead of time. There will be no presentations but we will be facilitating a lively discussion focused on how to better reach students in high school and college. This is an opportunity for individuals to share what they have learned and learn more about some best practices. We also plan to have a follow up meeting in December with a speaker about online learning and a discussion.

    Copresented by LILRC Health Sciences Information Committee, SCLA Health Concerns Committee, and NCLA Health Services Committee.  

    Meet Maia Kobabe, author of Gender Queer: A Memoir (Lion Forge, 2019) for a discussion of the book, the 2020 ALA Alex Award winner and 2020 Stonewall-Israel Fishman Non-fiction Award Honor Book.

    LILRC will provide free print copies of Gender Queer: A Memoir to the first 25 registrants.
    For Suffolk/Nassau public librarians, books will be delivered through the systems to participant libraries. If you are unable to receive a book in that way, you may contact Sally Stieglitz at sstieglitz@lilrc.org for more information.
    Additionally, copies of Gender Queer: A Memoir are available to read through your library and on Hoopla.

    About Gender Queer: A Memoir
    In 2014, Maia Kobabe, who uses e/em/eir pronouns, thought that a comic of reading statistics would be the last autobiographical comic e would ever write. At the time, it was the only thing e felt comfortable with strangers knowing about em.
    Now, Gender Queer is here.
    Maia’s intensely cathartic autobiography charts eir journey of self-identity, which includes the mortification and confusion of adolescent crushes, grappling with how to come out to family and society, bonding with friends over erotic gay fanfiction, and facing the trauma and fundamental violation of pap smears.
    Started as a way to explain to eir family what it means to be nonbinary and asexual, Gender Queer is more than a personal story: it is a useful and touching guide on gender identity—what it means and how to think about it—for advocates, friends, and humans everywhere.
    (Excerpt from the LionForge website.)

    About Maia Kobabe: Maia Kobabe is a nonbinary, queer author and illustrator from the Bay Area, California. Eir first full length book, GENDER QUEER: A MEMOIR, was published in May 2019. Maia's short comics have been published by The Nib and in many anthologies including THE SECRET LOVES OF GEEKS, FASTER THAN LIGHT Y'ALL, GOTHIC TALES OF HAUNTED LOVE, SHOUT OUT, ADVANCED DEATH SAVES and BE GAY, DO COMICS. Before setting out to work freelance full-time, e worked for over ten years in libraries. Eir work is heavily influenced by fairy tales, homesickness, and the search for identity.

    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.
