    MEDLI SPRING 2020 MEETING
    Co-presented by Medical & Scientific Libraries of Long Island, Suffolk Cooperative Library System, and Long Island Library Resources Council

    For many, the library is a safe, non-judgmental space where a patron can explore and acquire new knowledge. Library patrons who are grappling with immediate mental health challenges who visit our safe spaces may find themselves in need of assistance. This program will introduce you to resources and trainings to not only support these patrons in need, but to support you and your library staff so that they can respond appropriately with compassion and care for the patron and themselves. This is a must attend for managers, directors, and librarians working in medical, scientific, or public libraries.

    Program Speakers:

    Denise Driscoll, RN-BC, CARN, PMHCNS-BC, NPP, Assistant Vice President of Behavioral Health at Mather Hospital
    Debra Engelhardt, Director of Comsewogue Public Library & Adjunct Professor at Palmer School of Library and Information Science

    Ms. Driscoll and Ms. Engelhardt will be presenting their research project entitled To  Boldly Go: Operation Mental Health in the Public Library.

    Alexis Rodgers, LMSW, Coordinator of Community Mental Health Education at the Association for Mental Health and Wellness (AMHW)

    Ms. Rodgers will discuss the workshops, trainings and support services the AMHW offers to libraries across Long Island.

    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.

    Academic and Special Libraries Division (ASLD) of NCLA
    Division of Academic and Special Libraries (DASL) of SCLA

    The first Academic Libraries Invitational conference was initiated in 2015.  As suggested by the LILRC Board and approved by the Boards of ASLD and DASL, this regional academic libraries conference was officially changed to Herbert Biblo Academic Libraries Invitational in 2019 in memory of former LILRC Director Herbert Biblo.  All faculty and staff from Long Island academic libraries and special libraries are invited and encouraged to attend this year’s conference, which is changed to a virtual conference, to hear from the following speakers presenting on three great topics.

    9:45pm - 10:00         Check-in

    10:00am - 10:10       Opening Remarks

    10:10am - 10:45am  OER Behind the Scenes: Many Moving Parts

    As part of a SUNY's Excelsior tuition-free program, an Open Educational Resources (OER) initiative was introduced in 2017.  The governor of New York state allocated $8,000,000 to support this initiative.  The funds were dedicated to compensate teaching faculty who agreed to create, adapt and adopt OERs for their courses.  Stony Brook University undertook the challenge.  Stony Brook University Libraries led the charge with support from the Office of the Provost.  Some faculty members were supportive of the initiative and forged ahead in creating, adapting and/or adopting OER materials.  Their submitted proposals were accepted and forms were signed to receive monetary compensation for their efforts; thus began the backend of the OER implementation process.  The backend involved the University Libraries collaboration with non-academic entities on campus such as Human Resources, Procurement, and the Office of Institutional Research.  In most cases, these departments were unfamiliar with OER.  This presentation discusses the noted challenges related to navigating the backend of OER implementation and its sustainability, all the while being mindful of one of the primary goals of the OER initiative to mitigate the high costs of textbooks for students who are financially strapped.

    Presenter: Mona Ramonetti, Head of Scholarly Communication and Stony Brook University OER Campus Lead, Stony Brook University Libraries

    10:45am - 11:20am    Leveraging Section 108 Rights: The Academic Libraries Video Trust

    This session provides an overview of Section 108(c) of the Copyright Act, which addresses preservation of audiovisual material in library collections, as well as the Academic Libraries Video Trust (ALVT, www.videotrust.org).  Section 108 gives libraries the right to make replacement copies of audiovisual material that is damaged, deteriorating, lost, stolen, or in an obsolete format as long as the material is not available to purchase.  The ALVT is a shared repository for audiovisual material digitized under rights granted via Section 108 and is a crucial tool for addressing issues of preservation and access.

    Presenter: Sarah E. McCleskey, Head of Resource and Collection Services, Hofstra University Library

    11:20am - 11:55am  Providing an Inclusive Environment for Neurodiverse Individuals

    Core issues and common struggles of individuals with neurodiverse diagnoses such as Autism Spectrum Disorder(ASD) will be covered.  Tips for identifying and understanding their struggles will also be provided.  As well, best practice strategies for supporting these individuals, and options to offer safe environments will be discussed.

    Presenter: Mitchell Nagler, Director of Bridges to Adelphi Program and Adjunct Faculty, Gordon F. Derner School of Psychology, Adelphi University

    11:55am - 12:00pm   Wrap-up
