    Kugel and Frijoles: Latino Jews in the United States analyzes the changing construction of race and ethnicity in the United States through the lens of contemporary Jewish immigrants from Latin America. Since Latino Jews are not easily classified within the U.S. racial and ethnic schema, their ethnic identity and group affiliation challenge existing paradigms.

    This presentation introduces the stories of Latino Jewish immigrants and lays out the important questions surrounding ethnic identity: How do Latino Jews identify? Can they choose their identity or is it assigned to them? How is ethnicity strategic or instrumental?Presenter Laura Limonic illustrates how groups can be constructed when there is a lack of a perfect host group and detail the ways different factors influence ethnic identity and shape membership into ethnic groups affecting the trajectory of immigrant incorporation.

    Presenter: Laura Limonic is an Assistant Professor of Sociology at the College of Old Westbury of the State University of New York. Her research is in the area of contemporary immigration to the United States and the integration trajectories of ethnic and ethno-religious groups. Her recent book on Latino Jews in the United States was honored as the 2019 best book by the Latin American Jewish Studies Association. The book explores issues of ethnicity, race, class and religious community building among Latino Jewish immigrants in Boston, New York, Miami and Southern California. Her work has been supported by the Berman Foundation and the Association of Jewish Studies.Limonic is currently working a new project funded by the Templeton Trust’s Global Research Religion Initiative. This research examines the rise of Chabad-Lubavitch in Latin America and the role played by transnational migrants within the movement. ​

    Limonic received her PhD in Sociology from the CUNY Graduate Center in 2014. She has a Bachelor of Arts degree in Latin American Studies from Brandeis University and a Master of International Affairs degree from Columbia University.

    Join Students for Climate Action for part three of a four part series on understanding challenges and how to engage your community through meaningful programming.  Attendees are not required to participate in each part of the series, all are welcome to attend.   

    There is no better way to learn than doing.  As they say...you retain 10% of what you read, 20% of what you see, 30% of what you hear, 50% of what you see and hear and 80% doing. What is important to know when you educate, there are different learning styles for everyone and the more you do, the more you learn. 

    We will highlight some great hands-on programs that are easy to implement to create citizen science!  This will include: the A Day in the Life program, a one day event at a local aquatic ecosystem for water quality studies and biodiversity inventories.  All collected data is uploaded and usable for land use decision making; and a climate change citizen science project to highlight and research how climate change is affecting our shorelines and sea level rise. 

    This presentation will be a train the trainer program with on-going assistance on programming.

    “It was the scariest thing I’ve ever done at my library.” This is how Julie Perrin, director of the Jaffrey Public Library in Jaffrey, New Hampshire, describes a virtual conversation she recently hosted on gender identity. The topic itself wasn’t scary; Perrin was worried about her community’s reaction. (Programming Librarian June 23, 2021)

    Hosting a community conversation on gender diversity can be an intimidating project for librarians, particularly in rural or noninclusive communities. Thanks to a Libraries Transforming Communities: Focus on Small and Rural Libraries grant from ALA, the Jaffrey Public Library was able to move forward with a much-needed program: More than a Pronoun: A Panel Discussion on Gender Identity and Expression, with great success. Julie Perrin will share the planning process, panelist selection and support, safety concerns, implementation, and outcome of this successful project so that you can consider bringing a similar program to your community.

    Julie Perrin (she/her) is the Library Director at Jaffrey Public Library, a rural library in New Hampshire. She holds a Master’s degree from Simmons in Boston, and, in 2020, was awarded Library Director of the Year by the New Hampshire Library Trustees Association. Julie is a passionate hands-on director, as comfortable writing grants and managing budgets as donning a lab coat to host science experiments for children or working with seniors at the local adult care center. She has been awarded multiple local and national grants for her library to support lifelong learning for all ages.

    QPR was developed by Dr. Paul Quinnett and stands for Question Persuade Refer.  In addition to learning how to recognize a crisis, this training focuses on the participants learning how to question someone effectively regarding potential thoughts of suicide, how to persuade someone to receive the most effective help for their current state (by listening without judgment and helping them to find the hope to stay alive) and how to refer someone to the next step for further, ongoing assistance. 

    Participants are given statistical information, as well as information about risk factors, warning signs and protective factors in order to be effective, “Gatekeepers.”  A role play session is included in the training to allow for practice of these skills in a safe environment.  Although the focus of QPR is suicide prevention these strategies and techniques can be used to support any mental health crisis. Training material, access to resources as well as a list of local resources, and a certificate is provided upon completion of the training.

    Google Scholar is a frequently cited grey literature source in knowledge syntheses and other searches, but it’s not always easy to identify the grey literature types you can find there. Sarah Bonato, our resident expert on all things Google Scholar and grey, will show you how to identify all the types of grey literature available in Google Scholar.

    You’ll also learn from Sarah advanced search techniques that help you locate just what you want, and, because every database has limitations, you’ll learn about alternative sources of grey literature. You’ll leave the webinar prepared to do your own grey literature searches on Scholar and to advise review team members on using Google Scholar as a source of grey literature.

    Learning Outcomes At the end of the webinar, participants will be able to:

    • Describe the types of grey literature available in Google Scholar
    • Use search techniques to locate grey literature in Google Scholar
    • Assist research teams in deciding to use Google Scholar in searches
    • Modify complex database searches search to find grey literature

    How do we keep staff and patrons safe when the unexpected happens? We will discuss best practices for keeping our staff and patrons safe in our buildings during a public health crisis and dive into potential future changes for buildings. Attendees will discuss short term and long term changes and how to determine the difference between a building fad and a building trend.

    Please join LILRC as we welcome Dr. Dave Williams to speak about his recent book, Leadership Moments From NASA: Achieving the Impossible (co-authored by Elizabeth Howell, PhD; EWC Press, July 2021).

    About the book:

    The NASA way: lessons on leadership, teamwork, and corporate culture. How does NASA take on seemingly insurmountable challenges, recover from tragedy and continue to attract the best and brightest talent? Space exploration is as much a story of leadership and teamwork as it is a story of exploration and discovery. Leadership Moments from NASA delves into the culture of the famed organization and examines the leadership styles and insights of NASA senior executives spanning five decades of human spaceflight to share the lessons they learned from critical moments. How did they prioritize? How did they resolve differences? How did they decide what to do when no one had done it before? How did they build highly competent teams? How did they build organizational resilience? How did they fight complacency and rebuild a culture of safety and innovation? Through the use of NASA oral histories and interviews, this book shows how NASA recovered from tragedy and adversity, and how it developed a culture of competency that continues to attract the best and brightest. https://ecwpress.com/products/leadership-moments-nasa

    Through examples and case studies from the presenter’s experience, this mini workshop will introduce project management concepts and techniques as applied to e-resource management and collaborative collections work. After an introductory presentation, participants are invited to complete a project management worksheet and/or questionnaire and then explore the topic further in small groups.

    Questions explored include:

    • What is project management and what are some example methods and tools (e.g., Scrum)?
    • Building on traditional project management techniques and methods, what practices recognize that humans are doing the work, and honor human nature and needs and successful project completion?
    • What individual practices can each person do that builds trust, governance, communication, and kindness and thus enables successful project collaboration – especially across an organization’s hierarchy and areas of expertise?
    • How do participants imagine applying one thing from the presentation to their work or home lives?

    Controlled Digital Lending (CDL) provides a legal option for libraries to explore as they reconfigure and reprioritize access to their physical collections and future digital collections in COVID era and beyond. Patrons desire more digital access to works. CDL helps to preserve the power of the print; it allows a library or archive to recapture the significant legal and fiscal value in its collections.

    In this one-hour presentation, Kyle K. Courtney (Harvard Library) will give an overview of both the law that underlies CDL and the practical questions libraries must ask before embarking on a CDL project of their own. Featuring a robust Q&A to help dispel common myths and misperceptions, this is a great starting place for all libraries to understand CDL.

    Kyle K. Courtney is both lawyer and librarian. He is the Copyright Advisor for Harvard University.

    Students tend to engage best with material when they’re having fun with it. In this workshop, we’ll talk about ways that you can gamify both physical and virtual classrooms to engage students in more active learning techniques, especially when it comes to leading information literacy sessions. From simple tools like buzzers or dry erase boards to creating augmented reality games or choose your own adventures, you’ll learn about a wide range of easy to complex activities you can implement in your own classes.

    Presenter Holly Jackson is the Student Success Librarian at Mansfield University and enjoys using hands-on and/or gamified techniques in her classroom sessions, both in library sessions and in full semester courses she’s taught in First Year Experience, English, and Honors.
