    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.

    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 workshop is interactive for the participants to explore where they are on the continuum of learning about the systemic issues and prejudice affecting us today. Participants will learn the fundamental difference between interpersonal and institutional issues. We will discuss complicated terminologies such as unconscious bias, intersectionality, language around sexual orientation and gender identity, white privilege, and more. Lastly, we will go through a history timeline that breaks down how laws and policies have affected our mindsets. The history timeline is based on many facts about Long Island, drawing a connection to where we live.

    Objectives:
    On an individual level, this conversation will raise awareness and people will leave being reflective about the importance of understanding the history, role we play in society, and the importance of communication as it pertains to diversity and inclusion issues.

    Interpersonal interactions with their peers and library patrons will see an impact with greater understanding and knowledge if the person chooses to engage in the teaching.

    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.

    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.

    Diversity involves how individuals discern themselves, but also how they discern others. Those perceptions can affect the way in which people interact and communicate with the world around them. These interactions can be the primary reason why a person decides to engage with your institution (or not), can dictate where a person spends their time, and/or the people they choose to have relationships with.

    This training will offer participants tools and strategies to create a diverse, inclusive environment by avoiding misunderstandings based on:
    1. Stereotypes
    2. Language/accent
    3. Differences in communication styles and non-verbal communication

    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.

    As a librarian, you are a teacher. In just about everything you do, from answering reference questions, doing library orientation sessions, and responding to search requests, to formal teaching, you teach. And you teach adults. This webinar will show you how to apply the work of major adult learning theorists, particularly Malcolm Knowles’s work on andragogy, to improve your teaching in all settings. You’ll leave with practical ideas that help you teach more effectively and with greater personal satisfaction.

    Learning Outcomes

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

    1) Apply learning theories to address specific problems and characteristics of adult learners in a range of settings
    2) Create effective instruction for adults
    3) Reflect on their own teaching strategies and modify them to be more effective

    Audience
    Librarians who teach, orient library users, or instruct staff on new tools and resources. Beginners are welcome.

    This registration is for the live webinar only and does not provide MLA CE hours. This will NOT be recorded.

    Medical librarians, please contact Sally Stieglitz @sstieglitz@lilrc.org to learn how to participate with a MLA site code that supports MLA continuing education contact hours.
