    ERASE Racism is a regional nonprofit organization on Long Island with a mission to increase understanding of how structural racism and segregation impact our communities and region through research, policy, and advocacy. Our program, Structural Racism on Long Island, begins with an understanding of "whiteness" as a concept and the meaning and function of white privilege. It will then address how structural racism was embedded into the development of Long Island. It will then connect this history and context to its ongoing impact, particularly as it relates to housing and education. Our program is interactive and conversational, aiming to engage participants in a vulnerable, honest conversation about how race continues to affect opportunity structures locally, regionally, and nationally, and how we can make positive change in our communities.

    There will be a $25 fee for no-shows. This is only open to LILRC members.

    An Interprofessional Team Addressing the Health Needs of Public Library Patrons

    The Stony Brook Medicine Healthy Libraries Program (HeLP) is an interdisciplinary team of nursing, social work, public health, and library science students whose aim is to provide evidence-based health information, screening, and health management to a diverse community of patrons in a public library setting. Students refer patrons to appropriate local health and social services programs as needed, with the goals of improving overall health and wellness to decrease health disparities. This program has been in effect since the spring of 2020, and there are currently five partnering libraries in Suffolk County, with many more libraries currently requesting the services of the HeLP team. 

    Gabriella Pandolfelli, HeLP Program Coordinator, will be presenting, along with HeLP interns Meave Gallagher (LIS student), Nicole Malley (LIS student) and Winnie De Los Santos (MPH student).

    Program Schedule:

    Please join LILRC in welcoming author Chasten Buttigieg for a moderated discussion about his bestselling book I Have Something to Tell You: A Memoir (Atria Books, 2020). LILRC members who attend will be entered to win copies of the book, newly released in paperback!

    Who Should Attend: librarians, library staff, archivists, LIS students

    About the Book:

    “Throughout the past year, teacher Chasten Glezman Buttigieg has emerged on the national stage, having left his classroom in South Bend, Indiana, to travel cross-country in support of his husband, former mayor Pete Buttigieg, and Pete’s groundbreaking presidential campaign. Through Chasten’s joyful, witty social media posts, the public gained a behind-the-scenes look at his life with Pete on the trail—moments that might have ranged from the mundane to the surprising, but that were always heartfelt.

    Chasten has overcome a multitude of obstacles to get here. In this moving, uplifting memoir, he recounts his journey to finding acceptance as a gay man. He recalls his upbringing in rural Michigan, where he knew he was different, where indeed he felt different from his father and brothers. He recounts his coming out and how he’s healed from revealing his secret to his family, friends, community, and the world. And he tells the story of meeting his boyfriend, whom he would marry and who would eventually become a major Democratic leader.

    With unflinching honesty, unflappable courage, and great warmth, Chasten Buttigieg relays his experience of growing up in America and embracing his true self, while inspiring others to do the same.”

His responsibilities include managing media relations for the International Space Station (ISS), Commercial low-Earth orbit and Commercial Crew; leading the digital multimedia content team; hosting live television commentary of dynamic spaceflight in Mission Control Houston; and producing and hosting “Houston We Have a Podcast.”

    Gary first started at NASA in 2012 through their Pathways Internship program while he was still a student at Penn State University. As an intern, he directed and edited a parody music video titled “NASA Johnson Style,” which now has over 6.5 million views on YouTube.

    In 2014, Gary began his career as a full-time NASA employee in internal communications where he lead a team to unify communication platforms and standardize branding, for which he would be awarded the NASA’s Trailblazer Award in 2016. He also ran an internal engagement campaign for 10,000 employees and contractors that was centered around the book and feature film “The Martian” and included stage presentations, written products, and unique experiences like an employee screening.

    For the past 3 years, Gary has been a part of the external communication team at NASA where his primary newsroom beats are overseeing the public messaging for the International Space Station (ISS) Program, an orbiting space laboratory that is nearing 20 years of continuous human presence; and the Commercial Crew Program, a program that is working closely with SpaceX and Boeing to launch humans from American soil. He also supports the Commercial low-Earth orbit (LEO) program that is working to develop a robust commercial economy in low-Earth orbit in which NASA can be one of many customers purchasing services.

    What is a vertical file?  Simply put, it is a filing cabinet with folders dedicated to people, places, events, and other topics relating to a community.  It is the first stop for a librarian or archivist to send a researcher with questions about a popular subject.  The Society of American Archivists defines it as, “an example of an artificial collection.”

    This workshop is for anyone who wants to begin a vertical file for their organization and for those looking to organize an existing one.  Nicole Menchise, LILRC Digitization and Archives Coordinator, will go step-by-step through the process of weeding, sorting, organizing files and cataloging archival materials.  A workflow will be discussed and shared with the attendees.

    Librarians are not only delving into teaching data visualization to their patrons, but also utilizing visualizations to communicate their own research. This webinar serves the dual purpose of role-modeling how to teach data visualization and teaching you how to apply design principles and targeted messaging into your professional activities. You will be introduced to universal design strategies - such as color, font, proximity, and shape; targeted messages for specific audiences; and ethical and accessibility principles.

    Learning Outcomes
    By the end of the webinar, you will:

    Understand the importance of telling the story of data
    Know six design principles to apply to visualizations
    Create targeted messages through visualizations
    Approach data visualizations with ethics and accessibility in mind

    This session is for all levels and areas of librarianship. No prior skills or experience necessary.

    Presenter: Shanda Hunt has been the Public Health Library Liaison & Data Curation Specialist at the University of Minnesota (UMN) for the last five years. Her interest in data visualization developed as she became more intimately aware of research dissemination processes and information access, while reflecting on her previous career in public health where researchers recognized that data visualization can enhance public health messaging; however, they felt they lacked the knowledge and skills for this. This compelled her to revisit the skills she began to nurture as an interior design undergraduate student. She attended a number of data visualization workshops, courses, and presentations to build the skills needed to teach data visualization to patrons at the UMN.

    Note: This registration is for the Livestream only and does not offer MLA contact hours. If you are a LILRC member health sciences/hospital librarian, please email Sally Stieglitz, at sstieglitz@lilrc.org, to arrange to view with a unique access code for MLA contact hours.

    Keynote Description
    Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) audits offer library and information organizations (LIOs) a strategic method for assessing their DEI efforts. However, the execution of these audits can be complicated, time-consuming, and expensive. With no standardized methods currently available, many LIOs find themselves struggling to even know where to begin process. This presentation will offer attendees an overview of what a DEI audit is designed to do, discuss the general steps to take when conducting an audit, and offer best practices for conducting an audit that will meet the needs of your organization. Dr. Bright will also share an example of an auditing tool currently under development that may be of interest to attendees.

    Dr. Kawanna BrightKeynote Presenter: Kawanna Bright, PhD, MLIS, is Assistant Professor of Library Science at East Carolina University. Dr. Bright earned her PhD in Research Methods and Statistics from the University of Denver in 2018.  Prior to earning her doctorate, Dr. Bright worked as an academic librarian for twelve years, with a focus on reference, instructional services, and information literacy.  She earned her MLIS from the University of Washington iSchool in 2003.  Dr. Bright’s current research focuses on assessment in libraries, diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) in libraries, the application of research methodology to the study of library and information science, and the importance of the liaison librarianship role in academic libraries. Her work with Dr. Amy VanScoy (University at Buffalo) to investigate the reference and information services experience of librarians of color received a 2014 ALA Diversity Research Grant and was awarded the 2017 Beta Phi Mu-Library Research Round Table Research Paper Award.  Among other projects, Dr. Bright is continuing her efforts to develop a standardized DEI assessment tool for academic libraries in the hopes of moving the assessment of DEI away from simply counting “diverse” employees.

    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 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 2- Personnel
    A library cannot run without staff. We will discuss what we have learned about the changes both immediate and long term that need to be made to personnel in our libraries as a result of a public health crisis.

    The NASA and the Navajo Nation Partnership is an ongoing collaboration that has facilitated the co-creation of numerous educational materials, workshops, and camps for Navajo youth. Their work flows from the understanding that Indigenous knowledge systems and Western science reflect, resonate with, and reinforce one another, and affirm each other as valid, valuable, and vital. NASA's Culturally-Based, Dual-Learning methodology prioritizes Indigenous knowledge – which is taught first in the programs, always and only by Indigenous educators and Elders, using Indigenous languages and pedagogies, in Indigenous places. Afterward, corresponding Western STEM concepts are conveyed by experts in those fields. This method reinforces for Native youth that their cultural knowledge systems, practices, and technologies, are important, sophisticated, alive and well, and hold information that is just being explored by the Western STEM fields today. This provides a critical lens and asset-based perspective from which to be grounded as they approach the learning of Western STEM.

    Presenter Daniella Scalice is the Education and Communications Lead for NASA’s Astrobiology Program. Her background is in molecular biology and filmmaking. Her work is devoted to ensuring youth of all colors, cultures, genders, abilities, walks of life, and ways of loving and praying have equal access to opportunities in STEM, and are supported to excel in everything they do, especially toward healthy social, cultural, and economic lifeways. Daniella lives and works on the lands of the Piscataway People in the occupied territories known today as Annapolis, Maryland.

    This program is being presented in cooperation with NASA's Solar System Ambassador program. For more information on the program, visit https://solarsystem1.jpl.nasa.gov/ssa/home.cfm

    LILRC welcomes digital anthropologist Frank Rose, speaking on his new book, The Sea We Swim In: How Stories Work in a Data-Driven World, a practical guide to "narrative thinking," and why it matters in a world defined by data.

    “Whether we’re aware of it or not, stories determine how we view the world and our place in it. That means the tools of professional storytellers―character, world, detail, voice―can unlock a way of thinking that’s ideal for an age in which we don’t passively consume media but actively participate in it. Building on insights from cognitive psychology and neuroscience, Rose shows us how to see the world in narrative terms, not as a thesis to be argued or a pitch to be made but as a story to be told.”

    About Frank Rose:

    Frank Rose is the best-selling author of The Art of Immersion, hailed as “a grand trip” by Britain's New Scientist and “an essential overview” by the International Journal of Advertising. He is a lead­ing think­er on the im­pact of tech­nol­ogy on media, enter­tain­ment, and so­ci­ety — a theme he has explored as a contributor to The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal, as a former contributing editor at Wired, and as a key­note speaker at mar­ket­ing con­fer­ences and film festi­vals world­wide.

    A senior fel­low at Colum­bia Uni­ver­sity School of the Arts, Frank is faculty director of its Strategic Story­telling seminar, presented in part­ner­ship with Colum­bia Business School Executive Education, and director of the Digital Dozen: Breakthroughs in Storytelling awards at its Digital Story­telling Lab.

    In the 21st century there is a constant rise in library patron needs and expectations. As dwindling budgets and less staff prevail, libraries are looking at new models of outreach and engagement to prove their value. Looking through a “creative” lens focuses on “what is possible” and encourages individuals and organizations to work in unconventional ways while using tools which are readily and easily accessible for teaching, learning, or solving problems.

    Creativity and playful experiences can be freeing and allow for spontaneity, which is crucial when performing scholarly research, solving problems, or honing life-long learning skills. But also, these casual teaching moments provide opportunities for patrons to engage with library staff in non-traditional ways. Playful learning is a dynamic and creative way to highlight collections and services which can also be assessed to help capture and share the value and importance of an organization.

    Throughout this presentation viewers will learn more about creativity in libraries, the skills and tools needed to “be creative”, and how to implement and embrace a culture of creativity within their own work lives.

    Presenter: Megan Lotts is the Art Librarian at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, where she teaches research workshops, builds collections, facilitates programming and events, and closely engages with students and faculty researching in the Arts. Lotts has presented her research both nationally and internationally and has published articles in portal: Libraries and the Academy, Art Documentation, Journal of Library Administration, and College and Research Libraries News. Her first book titled, Advancing a Culture of Creativity in Libraries: Programming and Engagement, will be published by American Libraries Association and available in July of 2021. Her research interests include creativity, outreach & engagement, makerspaces, play, and the work of library liaisons. She is known for her work implementing LEGO® play, curating the exhibition spaces at the Rutgers University Art Library, as well as teaching a semester long seminar “Playing to Learn in Higher Education.”

    Megan earned her MFA (2004) and MLIS (2007) from University of Wisconsin-Madison and has a BFA in Painting (2000) and BFA in Art History (2002) from the University of Illinois- Champaign-Urbana. She currently lives in New Brunswick, NJ where she continues to explore, make, and engage in daily activities involving creativity and play.
