    Join LILRC in welcoming Janice P. Nimura, author of the upcoming book, The Doctors Blackwell: How Two Pioneering Sisters Brought Medicine to Women and Women to Medicine (W. W. Norton & Company, January 19, 2021).

    "The world recoiled at the notion of a woman doctor, yet Elizabeth Blackwell persisted―in 1849, she became the first woman in America to receive an MD. Her achievement made her an icon―“I am convinced that a new & nobler era is dawning, for Medicine,” she wrote―but her sister Emily, eternally eclipsed, was the more brilliant physician. Together they founded the first hospital staffed entirely by women, in New York City."
    https://www.janicenimura.com/doctors-blackwell/

    Janice P. Nimura received a Public Scholar Award from the National Endowment for the Humanities in support of her work on The Doctors Blackwell. Her previous book, Daughters of the Samurai: A Journey from East to West and Back, was a New York Times Notable book in 2015. Her essays and book reviews have appeared in the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Los Angeles Times, the Chicago Tribune, Salon, and LitHub, among other publications

    "I never learned this in library school" is a common refrain from librarians as they take on leadership and management responsibilities throughout their careers. We all too often assume that effective and strong leaders are born and not made. That assumption can lead to feelings of imposter syndrome and a general distaste for serving in leadership and management positions. Given the lack of formal training, all too many of us have worked for and with poor and even toxic leaders and managers. To break this cycle we need to bring the same intentionality to developing leadership and management skills as we do to the functional areas, like reference, cataloging, and outreach. In this workshop, participants will gain practical advice for how to develop themselves as leaders, and how to help foster a development culture in their libraries. The 90 minute session will begin with conclusions Birrell drew from her 2017 research project, and will include activities that will leave participants with an action plan for developing their skills and supporting others.

    Presenter Dr. Lori Birrell joined University of Arkansas Libraries in 2017 as Head of Special Collections. In 2019, she assumed the role of Associate Dean for Special Collections. In this role, Birrell provides strategic leadership of the division and its stewardship of archives and rare books to best serve the needs of researchers at the University and across the globe.

    Prior to coming to Arkansas, Birrell served for six years as the Special Collections Librarians for Historical Manuscripts at the University of Rochester. While at the University of Rochester, Birrell completed a Doctorate of Education with a focus on higher education administration and leadership. Her dissertation became the springboard for a monograph published by the Association of Research Libraries, Developing the Next Generation of Library Leaders.

    Birrell believes passionately in the idea that leaders are made and not born. She has served as a mentor to emerging leaders and new librarians, and has co-chaired the program committee for the inaugural Conference on Academic Library Management.
    Dr. Birrell earned a Masters of Library and Information Science from Simmons University, a Masters in History from the University of Massachusetts- Amherst, and a BA from Mount Holyoke College.

    As part of the movement to make data more accessible, the FAIR Data Principles were created to evaluate and quantify the features of open data, specifically the aspects of: (F) findability, (A) accessibility, (I) interoperability, and (R) reusability. As funders and publishers are increasingly encouraging and requiring researchers to publish their data, librarians have stepped in to provide expertise around choosing where to deposit and publish datasets. This session will provide a pathway for librarians to critically appraise this process in order to better provide guidance on where to deposit data and how to make data meet quality standards upon publication.

    Learning Outcomes
    At the end of the webinar, participants will be able to:
    • Describe common public data sharing methods
    • Evaluate datasets and data repositories using FAIR data principles
    • Distinguish measures of permanence and certification for data repositories
    • Characterize other data quality measures outside of FAIR principles

    Audience
    Librarians and information professionals who are new to or interested in data services. Those with no experience will also benefit from the session.

    What's "the future of libraries" going to look like? Well, one thing we know is that our role as technology hubs and education centers is not likely to change anytime soon. As a direct response to our patrons' needs, we must work on building an increased understanding of technology and empowering staff members to take on troubleshooting themselves. The library's technology staff is freed up to tackle larger issues, other team members benefit from quicker solutions to problems, and patrons benefit from the skills and patience developed among staff.

    After attending this session, participants will be able to:
    Mobilize staff and leverage tools to develop technology skills in the reference department and beyond;
    Use transferable skills to provide robust technology training for staff and programming/learning opportunities for patrons; and
    Assess current staff and community technology needs and use these as a starting point for a culture of ongoing, evolving support.

    CALLAN BIGNOLI is the director of the library at Olin College of Engineering in Needham, Massachusetts. She gathers inspiration from everywhere to inform user-centered practices and push the profession forward. Callan studies and speaks about user experience design, library management, and social issues in technology, challenging students and colleagues to fight for a more just and human future.

    Join Kate Hall and Kathy Parker, authors of The Public Library Directors Toolkit, as they discuss how to balance the responsibilities of being a director during a pandemic and three core areas of running a public library during a public health crisis and after. The four individual sessions will include library director jenga, personnel, emergency planning, and buildings. Each session will delve into each topic, have some group work and time for roundtable discussion. The sessions are intended for established public library directors and we encourage attendees to come ready to share their own insights and experiences.

    Session 1- Library Director Jenga

    Running a library is like playing Jenga. You need to work collaboratively to set up a solid base and then carefully move the pieces to ensure everything doesn’t come tumbling down. Challenging during the best of times, during a public health crisis this has become an even more daunting task. Learn the different pieces at play in a director’s life as you build a jenga tower and learn what to do when it comes tumbling down.

    Presenters:
    Kate Hall is the Executive Director of the Northbrook Public Library after serving as Director at the New Lenox Public Library and in various Youth Services positions in the Chicagoland area for over 20 years. In her decade as a library director, Kate has been very active in state and national library groups including the American Library Association, Illinois Library Association, and Reaching Across Illinois Library System. She has served on the committee and chaired Director’s University, an intensive training for new Illinois Public Library Directors that went virtual in 2020. She is the co-author of The Public Library Director’s Toolkit published by ALA Editions and the devoted servant of two demanding cats.

    Kathy Parker was the director of the Glenwood-Lynwood (IL) Public Library District from 2002-2018 after serving as Assistant Director at the Harvey (IL) Public Library. She has worked in public and private libraries for over 40 years in nearly every department and co-founded Director’s University. She has served on numerous state committees including the Illinois Library Association and has served as library trustee for her local library and the regional library system, Reaching Across Illinois Library System. She was the 2016 recipient of American Library Associations Trustee Citation award. After retiring in 2018, Kathy launched the kathyparker consulting firm which provides training to trustees and new directors. She is the co-author of The Public Library Director’s Toolkit published by ALA Editions.

    Did you know listing on the National and State Registers of Historic Places does not protect historic places from demolition or redevelopment? Only municipalities and local preservation ordinances can protect historic places from destruction. Nevertheless, federal and state preservation laws play an important role by offering attractive financial incentives like tax credits, or by requiring a more intensive process of environmental review for some projects. Explore how local, state, and federal laws work together to preserve historic places, and how you can support a more comprehensive approach to preservation in your community.

    Sarah Kautz is the Preservation Director at Preservation Long Island. Their mission "is to celebrate and preserve Long Island’s diverse cultural and architectural heritage through advocacy, education, and stewardship of historic sites and collections."

    Callan Bignoli and Lauren Stara will present an exploration of service design – what is it and how can it make your library better tomorrow? Services and the way we deliver them are changing very quickly and unpredictably. Being intentional about what and how we do is what we mean by service design. Digital, physical, and even philosophical: it’s all about service.

    Learning objectives:

    - Learn how to harness rapid change and community feedback to provide more responsive, user-centered library service
    - Understand the ways in which libraries straddle the physical and the digital, in areas such as service provision and collections, illuminating how they overlap and can be improved using similar philosophies
    - Embrace an openness to change as a foundation for project management, problem solving, preparing for future challenges, personal reflection and self-care, and leadership

    CALLAN BIGNOLI is the director of the library at Olin College of Engineering in Needham, Massachusetts. She gathers inspiration from everywhere to inform user-centered practices and push the profession forward. Callan studies and speaks about user experience design, library management, and social issues in technology, challenging students and colleagues to fight for a more just and human future.

    LAUREN STARA is a library building specialist with the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners, helping public libraries around the Commonwealth improve their physical spaces. A registered architect and a librarian, she has worked in and/or consulted for libraries in eight US states, three Canadian provinces, and three Eastern European countries. She has taught at library schools in Canada and Bulgaria, and she speaks and presents frequently on library design, design thinking, and service design.

    LILRC 7th Annual Technical Services Open Forum

    Program Schedule

    9:30 AM -  Program opens on Zoom for sign in and welcome

    10:00 AM  - Not Just a Location: Library Technical Services, Remote Work, and COVID-19

    Anna R. Craft, Coordinator of Metadata Services, University Libraries, UNC Greensboro

    While the specific tasks accomplished in academic library technical services units can vary across institutions, “technical services” has traditionally been thought of as a physical location (or locations), not just a category of work. Electronic resources and online systems--which can often be used or managed from anywhere with a reliable internet connection--have steadily grown in importance within many libraries and technical services units; but the published literature offers few examples of explorations of remote work placements for library technical services personnel.

    But what happens when physical library technical services spaces aren’t available? Library personnel around the world have grappled with this question with the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, which has brought serious impacts to lives, communities, and organizations at all levels. This presentation will briefly look at the pre-pandemic history of remote work in library technical services and will discuss how previously identified challenges and lessons can help personnel navigate some of the issues that technical services units are confronted with as a result of the pandemic.

    Bio:
    Anna R. Craft is an associate professor at UNC Greensboro, where she serves as Coordinator of Metadata Services in the University Libraries. In a role that integrates aspects of metadata and scholarly communications, she coordinates institutional repository services, supports users of UNCG’s open access journal installation, provides scholarly communications training and development opportunities for students and faculty, and works collaboratively with personnel in and beyond Technical Services to ensure that the Libraries’ resources are discoverable and available for patrons worldwide. She is active in service and scholarship within the library profession and is a regular columnist for the journal Serials Review. She started her library career at the North Carolina State University Libraries, served as Metadata Librarian at Western Carolina University, and earned her MSLS from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

    Changes to subscription philosophies, reductions in library budgets, and adjusting to the needs of an evolving user community mean that libraries and vendors are working ever-closer to arrive at a solution that meets the needs of both parties. Through years of working with libraries, Amy Thurlow saw what she perceived as differences in treatment based on gender from both the library side and from vendors. As Thurlow delved through survey results, and then through the literature, she hoped to learn this was just a misperception on her part. Instead, Thurlow and her co-researcher, Anne Cerstvik Nolan, learned about the factors at play causing these gender portrayals. In this program, they will discuss situations and experiences that happen on a daily basis, and how we can overcome those in an effort to change society and move toward equality.

    Presenters: Amy Thurlow is the Regional Sales Manager for Academic Libraries in New England and has been at EBSCO for over 16 years, mostly in the role of a vendor. She has developed close relationships with many of her customers allowing her to have deep conversations about issues such as gender issues. She is a single mother of a strong 23 year old and they often coach each other on fair treatment by society. She is passionate about equality and teaching others to identify mistreatment and how to approach the situation toward a solution.

    Anne Cerstvik Nolan has been at the Brown University Library for 28 years, first as Assistant Head of Reference and Head of Interlibrary Loan.  She was also the Electronic Resources Librarian for several years before attaining her current position as Collection Strategist for Licensing and Assessment.  Anne has worked with library vendors for over 20 years and this project was born from that work.  She is also the proud mom of two very cute Chihuahuas.
