    Keeping a detailed inventory is one way to help prepare for an emergency. In this webinar we will discuss additional emergency preparedness techniques that can be used to help alleviate the damage caused by a disaster. Included will be; Proactive Preparedness Tips, Sample Emergency Preparedness Profiles and Case Studies.

    Once a disaster happens, emergency response is critical to the recovery of collections. This webinar will review industry best practices for disaster mitigation and stabilization. A disaster does not have to mean the end of your collection. We will also discuss current techniques and solutions that are being used to recover library collections after a disaster. Included will be; Initial Response Checklist, Disaster Recovery Service Options, Pricing Schedules and a Case Study of a complete recovery project cycle (with pictures).

    Presented by: Matt DeCirce, Polygon US

You will learn about the Journal of the Medical Library Association’s (JMLA’s) peer review process, the importance of peer reviewers to research in our field, and ways to find your strengths as a peer reviewer and an author.

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

    • Describe JMLA's peer review process
    • Recognize the important role of JMLA peer reviewers

    Presenters:

    Jill Barr-Walker is a clinical librarian at the ZSFG Library, Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital, part of the University of California–San Francisco, as well as assistant editor for JMLA. She has published seventeen peer-reviewed articles, and her current research involves information-seeking behavior around abortion, impostor syndrome among health sciences librarians, sexual harassment in academic libraries, and how medical library workers cope with the death of library patrons.

    Katherine Goold Akers is a biomedical research and data specialist at the Shiffman Medical Library, Wayne State University, Detroit, MI, with expertise in literature searching, systematic reviews, scholarly writing and publishing, assessment of research impact, and research data management.

    Copresented by LILRC and SCLA Health Concerns Committee

    Program Description: This program will introduce participants to several yoga principles/sutras which will then frame a gentle, guided practice suitable for all.  Emphasizing the connection between the mind and breath, the practice will be followed by an overview of the incorporated "tools" so that participants are comfortable using them on their own as a means to manage stress.. 

    Presenter: Lisa Melendez, Professor of Library Services, Suffolk County Community  College, Ammerman Lisa Melendez has been an academic public services/instructional librarian for over 25 years. Several years ago, she began to think about and research how her studies and practice in yoga overlap with information literacy.  This led her to attending the Summer Session on Contemplative Pedagogy at Smith College (2014), and from that point on she began to explore practical ways of incorporating mindfulness/contemplative practices into her work,  both in the classroom as well as on committees.

    She has  presented  at Transforming Higher Education, the annual conference sponsored by the Association for the Contemplative Mind in Higher Education (2016), and along with several other academic librarians,has formed the Mindfulness for Librarians Facebook group which hosts virtual hangouts on related issues, practices, etc.   Most recently, she  published a chapter in Recipes for Mindfulness in your Library (2019): https://www.alastore.ala.org/content/recipes-mindfulness-your-library-supporting-resilience-and-community-engagement.

    This program is the first in a series, "Workplace Wellness for Librarians."

    A certificate for 1.5 Professional Development Hours (.15 CEU's) will be emailed after the workshop.

    Library buildings were temporarily closed since mid March for most of the libraries, library staff acted quickly to make more library services available online so the library users can still have access to the library resources and library programs remotely from home. The library users can ask a librarian questions by live chat/email, join an online book club, attend a live cooking, exercise or meditation class, etc. Library staff are using multiple platforms such as Zoom, Facebook and YouTube to provide updates and deliver virtual programs and activities to users. All these transitions require library staff to change routines and workflows. Please come to hear from our panelists on how they were able to adapt to the changes and redesign their workflow to efficiently and effectively provide virtual library services.
