    Computer science skills are some of the most sought-after and highest-paying in the US job market, with demand growing 3X the national average. In 1995, 37% of computer scientists were women. Today, only 24% of computer scientists are women. Attrition for CS interest in girls is heightened between the ages of 13 and 17.


    This is where Girls Who Code steps in: We are on track to close the gender gap in technology by 2030. We have reached over 500 million people, served over 500,000 girls through our programming, and 50% of our participants are from historically underrepresented groups. 


    During our upcoming Webinar, we will provide an overview of Girls Who Code’s educational philosophy and impact, discuss equity-focused practices when developing coding programs, and introduce our free Clubs Program. We’ll engage participants in a deep dive into the Clubs experience with Girls Who Code. We’ll discuss the ways that we can directly support Clubs in supporting their networks and engaging with students at all levels of coding. Participants will have the opportunity to discuss how to further incorporate our curriculum into their communities. 


    Time permitting, we will also provide an introduction to the use of our platform, HQ, and offer tips to help participants recruit and engage students to start their own Girls Who Code Clubs. Finally, we will walk through our Clubs application process.


    We look forward to providing attendees the tools they need to help students in their communities learn to code and change the world!

    In an engaging narrative, The Jews of Long Island tells the story of how Jewish communities were established and developed east of New York City, from Great Neck to Greenport and Cedarhurst to Sag Harbor. Including peddlers, farmers, and factory workers struggling to make a living, as well as successful merchants and even wealthy industrialists like the Guggenheims.

    Presenter:

    Brad Kolodny spent six years researching how, when, and why Jewish families settled and thrived there. Archival material, including census records, newspaper accounts, never-before-published photos, and personal family histories illuminate Jewish life and experiences during these formative years. With over 4,400 names of people who lived in Nassau and Suffolk counties prior to the end of World War I, The Jews of Long Island is a fascinating history of those who laid the foundation for what has become the fourth largest Jewish community in the United States today. Brad Kolodny is president and founder of the Jewish Historical Society of Long Island and the author of Seeking Sanctuary: 125 Years of Synagogues on Long Island.

    As employees are being asked to return to work as COVID 19 winds down, many are resisting and seeking to continue to work remotely. Employers are finding that it is beneficial to have a hybrid workforce model where some work at the brick-and-mortar location and some work remotely. This so-called hybrid model is presenting managers with unique challenges. This program will offer strategies to maintain harmony and productivity in the hybrid work environment.

    Presented by Prof. Joshua Bienstock, JD., LLM., Associate Professor of Business Law, New York Institute of Technology, School of Management.

    Join LILRC to meet bestselling author Jamie Ford and to discuss his work, including his new acclaimed novel, The Many Daughters of Afong Moy (Atria, August 2, 2022), in a moderated conversation. LILRC members who attend will be eligible to win hardcover copies of the book as door prizes.

    About the Book:

    “Dorothy Moy breaks her own heart for a living.

    As Washington’s former poet laureate, that’s how she describes channeling her dissociative episodes and mental health struggles into her art. But when her five-year-old daughter exhibits similar behavior and begins remembering things from the lives of their ancestors, Dorothy believes the past has truly come to haunt her. Fearing that her child is predestined to endure the same debilitating depression that has marked her own life, Dorothy seeks radical help.

    Through an experimental treatment designed to mitigate inherited trauma, Dorothy intimately connects with past generations of women in her family: Faye Moy, a nurse in China serving with the Flying Tigers; Zoe Moy, a student in England at a famous school with no rules; Lai King Moy, a girl quarantined in San Francisco during a plague epidemic; Greta Moy, a tech executive with a unique dating app; and Afong Moy, the first Chinese woman to set foot in America.

    As painful recollections affect her present life, Dorothy discovers that trauma isn’t the only thing she’s inherited. A stranger is searching for her in each time period. A stranger who’s loved her through all of her genetic memories. Dorothy endeavors to break the cycle of pain and abandonment, to finally find peace for her daughter, and gain the love that has long been waiting, knowing she may pay the ultimate price.”

    Your Management Philosophy [Session 1]

    Before you can craft overarching HR philosophies for your organization, you need to know who you are as a manager. Participants will learn how to determine what their management values are and how their values relate to the library’s values before crafting a management philosophy statement.

    Laying the Foundation: Developing Your HR Philosophies

    Personnel is usually over 50% of a library’s budget, but few libraries have dedicated HR professionals navigating the ins and outs of HR. In this 4-part series, participants will learn how to lay a foundation for what type of manager they want to be and how to create an HR philosophy for their library that aligns with their library’s mission, vision, and values. This program is the first in a four part series, all of which can be attended as a stand alone or as a continuous learning experience.

    Join LILRC to hear author and journalist Wayne Hoffman speak on his recent memoir, The End of Her: Racing Against Alzheimers to Solve A Murder (Heliotrope Books, 2022).

    The End of Her, Hoffman’s nonfiction debut, is a true crime memoir about his efforts to uncover the facts about his great-grandmother’s murder, while watching his own mother’s decline from dementia. One reviewer called the book “a murder mystery wrapped like a delicious knish around a familial love story,” while a historian praised it as “meticulously researched and skillfully written.” Publishers Weekly gave it a starred review, calling it “riveting” and “a unique addition to the cold case subgenre, and a powerful mix of true crime and family memoir.”

    From: http://waynehoffmanwriter.com/index.php?/about-the-book/

    About Wayne Hoffman:

    Wayne Hoffman has published three novels: Hard and its sequel An Older Man are both published by Bear Bones Books, while the Stonewall Book Award-winning Sweet Like Sugar is published by Kensington Books. He is also a contributor to several anthologies. By day, Wayne is a journalist: His cultural reporting has appeared in The Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, Village Voice, The Nation, The Forward, Billboard and The Advocate. He is executive editor of Tablet Magazine.

    Most archives have a collection of cassette tapes that contain speeches, concert recordings, oral histories, radio broadcasts and personal memories, but after thirty or more years in storage, could be compromised by time and its storage environment.

    LILRC's Project Archivist Robert Anen will offer a program on digitizing audio cassette tapes to create a "use copy". He will discuss the anatomy of a cassette tape, how to inspect its mechanics and make minor repairs (without being an expert), and the importance of passive versus active preservation. He will include a brief hardware and software overview, teach us about what is inherent in a recording, give us listening tips, and explain how to store the digital file as well as the physical cassette tape.

    Erin Reardon, a medical school librarian, and Nancy Sims, a lawyer and university copyright program director, will open your eyes to the world of medical images copyright issues and deepen your understanding of copyright and fair use.

    You’ll engage with image use case studies to explore basic copyright concepts, such as fair use and licensing, go deep into issues that arise when using images in research, teaching, and other communications, and learn about image sources that can make copyright decisions easier. Image copyright decisions can be especially challenging due to the complexity and flexibility of relevant law and rules.

    If you are experienced with copyright, you may not be aware of copyright issues specific to image use. And, if you are new to copyright, learning about copyright image issues is a great way to learn about copyright law and to start to hone your copyright consulting skills.

    You’ll leave the webinar with expanded understanding of copyright and image copyright issues, information on image sources, and new skills for communicating about complex copyright questions that don’t have clear answers.

    Learning Outcomes

    By the end of this webinar, participants will be able to:

    • Identify categories of images for which copyright is not an issue in any use context
    • Identify licensed resources (open-licensed or subscription-based) that may be usable in specific professional contexts
    • Apply fair use considerations to image use cases for which there are no clear answers
    • Communicate clearly on complex copyright questions

    Audience

    Medical librarians and other health information professionals who work with images or advise faculty, students and others on copyright issues related to using images.

    Presenters

    Erin Reardon is a Medical School Librarian at the University of Minnesota’s Health Sciences Library, where she provides instruction, information services, and research support to students, trainees, and faculty in the Medical School.

    Nancy Sims is the Director of Copyright & Scholarly Communications at the University of Minnesota Libraries. Nancy is both an attorney and a librarian, with broad education, consultation and policy advocacy duties across the University.

Ultimately you extend the life of your buildings by activating these basic principles. Plus, there may be a ghost story or two along the way to keep things super interesting.

    At its core, violence barres the survivor from basic human rights, needs and safety.  Libraries are one of the last places in our communities where someone can take space without payment, where someone may find moments of safety in their otherwise unsafe world. This workshop will provide an overview of gender-based and other varying forms of violence, its impacts and ways libraries and their staff members can support those patrons in need.

    Your Hiring Philosophy [Session 2]

    Once a director knows what their values are as a manager, they can turn to determining how the library as a whole should approach HR. The first step in that process is defining the library’s approach to hiring, which is the first interaction you will have with future employees. In this session, participants will learn about hiring best practices and how to craft a hiring philosophy that aligns with how the library sees itself. We will then have a chance for participants to start crafting their library’s hiring philosophy.

    Laying the Foundation: Developing Your HR Philosophies

    Personnel is usually over 50% of a library’s budget, but few libraries have dedicated HR professionals navigating the ins and outs of HR. In this 4-part series, participants will learn how to lay a foundation for what type of manager they want to be and how to create an HR philosophy for their library that aligns with their library’s mission, vision, and values. This program is the second in a four part series, all of which can be attended as a stand alone or as a continuous learning experience.

    The goal of a sensory space is to provide an environment where children and adults with autism spectrum disorders, developmental disabilities, post-traumatic stress disorder, cerebral palsy, memory loss, dementia and sensory processing disorders can feel safe and welcome. The area contains a variety of products that are visually stimulating, tactile, calming and interactive.

    In this session, Assistant Director Sara Siegler and a panel from the Ocean County Library, NJ will share with you their Sensory Space, and its journey to open up to the public, which was finally realized in 2021.

    During this program, participants will conceptually create a sensory space in their own library, be it a school, special, corporate, or public institution. Participants will be given practical information for addressing considerations such as funding, budget, space design and layout, equipment, features, programming for all ages, and most importantly, discussing the project with key stakeholders. At the end of the program, participants will leave with a template so they are prepared and ready to start their project, at whatever scale, upon return to their library.
