    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.

    Virtual Meetup: A Crash Course on Open Access
    Friday, April 10, 2020 | 2:00PM-4:00PM

    Although open access publishing has been around for years, misconceptions about what “open” is and what it means for authors and users alike continue to persist. This session aims to demystify this multifaceted concept by introducing key terms and discussing the pros, cons, and future of the open access movement. By the end of this session, attendees will be able to describe and distinguish between common varieties of open access (e.g., green, gold, etc.), identify and decipher the popular Creative Commons open licenses (e.g., CC-BY, CC-BY-NC, etc.), and describe the current and potential impact of these aspects of OA on their patrons and stakeholders.

    Presenters: Danielle Apfelbaum, Scholarly Communication Librarian, Farmingdale State College and Derek Stadler , Web Services Librarian, LaGuardia Community College

    Giving feedback to employees is a key part of leadership, but it’s often something leaders avoid. One of the reasons is because leaders may feel like they don’t know how to give effective feedback, or feel that the feedback doesn’t change behavior anyway. Research shows that they may be right – one in three feedback sessions actually leads to a decrease in performance. This workshop describes evidence-based strategies for giving feedback that improves performance and enhances relationships between leaders and followers. It includes a role play exercise to practice these skills and develop a structure for effective feedback meetings.

    Workshop highlights:

    • Setting clear performance goals for feedback
    • Practicing feedback language that improves relationships between leaders and followers
    • Learning how to structure an effective feedback meeting

    LILRC's Hospital Library Services Program, 5th Annual Conference, is pleased to present Graphic Medicine: Bridging Communication, Empathy, and Creativity in Librarianship.

    Speaker: Matthew Noe

    Graphic medicine, or the overlap of comics and healthcare, has emerged over the past decade from a once small, sporadically discussed idea to a burgeoning field of study and subgenre in its own right. For librarians, the growth of the field - which includes a National Library of Medicine exhibit, "Graphic Medicine: Ill-Conceived and Well Drawn!" - presents numerous opportunities, ranging from reinvigorating interest in physical collections to interactive programming. This talk invites you to consider how libraries can use comics to encourage better communication, greater empathy, and a focus on creativity in the health sciences - and may even invite you to consider flexing your own creative muscles!

    Matthew Noe (he/his) is Lead Collection & Knowledge Management Librarian at Countway Library, Harvard Medical School, where he specializes in graphic medicine and health humanities. In addition to roles in ALA and MLA committees, he is a co-editor of GraphicMedicine.org, has received multiple grants to study and promote comics in medicine, and regularly speaks to anyone who will listen about comics librarianship.

    A certificate for 2 Professional Development Hours (.2 CEU's) will be emailed after the workshop.

    Division of Academic and Special Libraries (DASL) of SCLA

    The first Academic Libraries Invitational conference was initiated in 2015.  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 at Molloy College Suffolk Center, to hear from the following speakers presenting on three great topics.

    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

    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 on 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

    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

    This conference is open to faculty and staff of Long Island academic libraries and special libraries ONLY.  Morning coffee/light breakfast and lunch are provided.

    Morning Program: "Shifting the Pace with Contemplative Practices: Library Instruction and the Research Process"


    Presenter: Lisa Melendez, Professor of Library Services, Suffolk County Community College, Ammerman

    Lisa Melendez has been an academic public services/instructional librarian for over 25 years. Several years ago, she began to think about and research how her studies and practice in yoga overlap with information literacy. This led her to attend the Summer Session on Contemplative Pedagogy at Smith College (2014), and from that point on she began to explore practical ways of incorporating mindfulness/contemplative practices into her work, both in the classroom as well as on committees.

    She has presented at Transforming Higher Education, the annual conference sponsored by the Association for the Contemplative Mind in Higher Education (2016), and is an active participant in the Mindfulness for Librarians Facebook group which hosts virtual hangouts on related issues, practices, etc. Most recently, she published a chapter in Recipes for Mindfulness in your Library (2019).

    Loneliness and social isolation are rampant in America, according to many experts.  The Center for Disease Control calls loneliness an epidemic, and says it has a higher morbidity rate than obesity (about the same as smoking two packs of cigarettes a day).  Studies have shown that loneliness cuts across all age, social, race, and economic demographics.  We have tons of virtual friends, but few in reality.  The Oceanside Library has attacked this problem in two ways: directly & indirectly.  Directly we have created a number of programs which put people face-to-face.  We show TED videos, followed by an open discussion.  We have a dine around series, where we make a reservation at a local restaurant, patrons sign up through us, and then meet and dine with 8 or 10 others, breaking bread and talking with people they did not know before. We have teamed up with a local woodworking group and a crafters circle, offering opportunities for people to enjoy a hobby—and conversation.  We have a program for 20-somethings we hold at a local bar.  We provide social time for adults with special needs, and game days for our canasta, mahjong, scrabble, and chess players.  And that is just a few of the many programs we have, and are planning. Indirectly, we are tweaking many of our face-front programs (lectures, concerts, movies) so that they are also more interactive.  For instance, we will ask a crowd waiting for a lecture, “what was your first car?” or “who was your favorite actress growing up?”.  The questions gets the patrons talking among themselves, making the experience informative, but also social.  None of these programs require much in the way of a financial burden on the Library (we do roll out a cart with a Keurig for coffee & tea); in fact, almost all are free to us.  Libraries, as perhaps the only institution left in America that works, have the ability, and perhaps the obligation, to take action against the problem of loneliness.  The lonely are, to a great degree, the unknown underserved population.

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

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
