    There are 7.7 BILLION people in the world, do we really believe there’s only two types of us?  For centuries American infrastructure has been built on the socially constructed ideal that all humans are either men or women, boys or girls.  What if ideal were different?  In this 90-minute workshop participants will build a dynamic understanding of what Gender is, what it isn’t, how it impacts each and everyone one of us and how gender has been defined and designed differently in other cultures well before America ever existed.

    Please join LILRC to meet librarian and author Eva Jurczyk and hear her discuss her acclaimed mystery novel, The Department of Rare Books and Special Collections (Poisoned Pen Press, 2022).

    “Toronto librarian Jurczyk’s first novel is a valentine to librarians that doesn’t shy away from their dark sides.” Kirkus.

    “The Department of Rare Books and Special Collections, by far the catchiest book title of the year, is written for book lovers who will no doubt dive in and devour it just like real a bookworm. Eva Jurczyk provides a behind the curtains look at the rare book community, insightfully examining the makeup of the bibliophiles who populate it.” New York Journal of Books.

    Eva Jurczyk is a writer and librarian living in Toronto. She has written for Jezebel, The Awl, The Rumpus and Publishers Weekly. Her first novel, THE DEPARTMENT OF RARE BOOKS AND SPECIAL COLLECTIONS was published in January 2022 and was an IndieNext and LibraryReads pick.

    Many library workers have the best of intentions. They think they know their users very well, but they don't. Many spend hours promoting events and programs, services, and resources, but there are so many "no shows," or the services being promoted are not being used. This is simply because many library workers become heavily involved in marketing and promotional activities, but they fail to do their research. Marketing is often done backwards, or "upside down," meaning that we engage in marketing activities and then follow up with assessment. This is known as upside down (or backwards) marketing. When engaging in marketing activities, library workers must study their users first to determine their needs, expectations, and desires. Data should drive your library's marketing activities. In this 90 minute practical webinar, the presenter will describe the process of conducting market research and explain why it's so important to study your audience first before endeavouring in costly and time consuming marketing activities.

    Learning Outcomes:

    In this 90 minute webinar, participants will learn how to:

    1.  understand market research, and how it applies to libraries and information
    2.  organizations distinguish between the concepts of market research and marketing research
    3. identify your target market and target audiences
    4. utilize primary and secondary research techniques to study your library community
    5. engage in self-assessment instruments such as a SWOT analysis and perceptual map
    Presenter:

    Mark Aaron Polger is an academic librarian and information literacy instructor who has been working in libraries since 1988. He received his MLIS degree in 2000 from the University of Western Ontario (London, Ontario, Canada) and has worked as a librarian in public, hospital, and academic libraries. Currently, he is the Coordinator of Library Outreach at the College of Staten Island, City University of New York (CUNY). He has been deeply engaged in working in various library signage activities since 2012. He has written about library signage audits in journals and other publications and has presented nationally at library conferences.

    In September, 2021, he published Library Signage and Wayfinding Design: Communicating Effectively with Your User (ALA editions). He is also an accidental library marketer, as most of his professional experience as a librarian involves the marketing of library services and resources. His research interests include library marketing, outreach, and UX (user experience) design. Currently, he is the Founder and Editor-in-Chief of the open-access, peer reviewed journal Marketing Libraries Journal, which was launched in Fall 2017.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Each year our federal, state and local legislators promulgate more and more employment related legislation. To further complicate matters the courts and administrative agencies are actively regulating and interpreting the laws. This workshop will offer the participants updates on key legislation, court decisions and administrative actions with an eye to updating employee handbooks for the upcoming year.
