    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.

    This program explores how to incorporate the history of your existing library building into your new designs without compromising the integrity of the building while also creating a design that is current and relevant in today’s library culture. 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.

    Libraries offer tremendous opportunities to provide early and struggling readers with access to tools and resources that lead to skilled reading. This webinar presents the following topics:

    • The current literacy challenges, how we learn to read, and ways to support those competencies through library activities.
    • The different resources that help children learn to read, what decodable books are, and how decodable books support and supplement reading instruction.
    • Implementing a collection of decodable books and what that involves from a librarian perspective.

    Presenters:

    Marion Waldman, Founder/Executive Director, started Teach My Kid to Read in response to her struggles navigating the education system and obtaining reading services for her daughter. Marion believes in a world where librarians, parents/guardians, educators, and anyone interested in literacy education can help children learn to read using the approach to literacy proven to help most children learn to read. Libraries are where people go to read, and Marion believes that everyone who goes to a library should have access to books that they can read independently. Before Teach My Kid to Read, Marion worked for Appleton & Lange, Harper Collins, Cengage Delmar Learning, and Elsevier, Inc. Marion has undergraduate degrees in English and History from Hartwick College and an MBA from the University of Maryland.

    Tracy Young is passionate about education. When her daughters started school, Tracy began volunteering in their elementary classrooms and progressed into a leadership position as President of the PTSA for the Middle School and the High School. From there, Tracy ran for the local school board where she is currently serving a third term and is President of the Board of Education. Several years ago, her youngest daughter was diagnosed with dyslexia. This revealed to her how parents experience the world of Special Education in a public school setting, and the emotional ups and downs experienced by struggling readers. She is being trained as an Orton Gillingham therapist. Tracy has a BA from Barnard College and an MBA from Boston University. She is committed to helping struggling readers through volunteering, child tutoring, parent advocacy, and educational policy changes.

    Beth Bevars is Director of the Lodi Whittier Library in the beautiful Finger Lakes region. Beth holds a BA in Music from SUNY Geneseo and MA in Folk Studies from Western Kentucky University. She has worked as an arts administrator, folklorist and Suzuki violin teacher. While she has enjoyed her diverse career, her greatest work to date has been as a mother of, an advocate for, her severely dyslexic daughter. Experiences in the education of dyslexics in public school, private school, parochial school, boarding school and even her own homeschool have inspired and horrified Beth in equal measure and in 2017 she completed her Associate level training with the Orton-Gillingham Academy. Combining her administrative talents with her advocacy skills, Beth took on the role of Library Director in 2019 and is developing Lodi’s Literacy Hub which will provide dyslexia and literacy resources to students, parents, and teachers in the local community.

    Laurie Puhn Feinstein, has a B.A. and law degree from Harvard University. She is an attorney, author, and human rights activist. Laurie is an Of Counsel immigration lawyer at Bikkal & Associates in White Plains, and is the author of the national bestseller “Fight Less, Love More: 5-Minute Conversations to Change Your Relationship without Blowing Up or Giving In” (Rodale, 2012) and “Instant Persuasion: How to Change Your Words to Change Your Life,” (Penguin, 2005).  Laurie is a recognized speaker at Fortune 500 companies, universities, hospitals, and non-profits and has provided her relationship and conflict resolution skills and expertise on numerous TV and radio shows.  She is a member of the Town of Greenburgh Human Rights Advisory Committee, and she advocates locally for greater diversity and inclusion in the schools and community. Over the last 2 years, Laurie became immersed in the world of dyslexia and literacy due to her own child’s reading difficulties, and is now finding that her expertise in law, human rights and advocacy, comes together to give her the platform to raise awareness of literacy as a human right. She resides in Westchester, NY with her husband and three children.

    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.


    Elizabeth Munsky is an LGBTQIA+ Advocacy Consultant with over 10 years of LGBTQ+ advocacy, education, policy and program development experience.  Elizabeth specializes in policy analysis and program development for local and city governmental agencies.  Throughout her career she has assisted local public schools, tech industry leaders, small non-profits, local and city government agencies of all sizes, and everywhere in-between; all with the goal of pushing the needle of progress, support and affirmation for LGBTQIA+ people forward.  Currently she works as the Executive Director of LGBTQIA+ Affairs at the New York City Department of Correction.  As a self-defined educator and experiential learner, Elizabeth hopes that she can learn as much for those attending her workshops as they do from her.

    The seminar will provide information on issues caregivers and families face as people age. Senior focused groups throughout Long island, including the National Aging in Place Council (NAIPC), can help social workers and families navigate the complicated health and wellness landscape. These resourceful groups have the benefit of being accountable to each other which offers better protection for those who utilize senior services. This program will include discussion on the types of services available to older adults. Attendees will learn about resources and entitlements available on Long Island, from planning financially, to turning 65 with Social Security and Medicare to end of life planning and everything in between.

    In October 2016, HeinOnline unveiled Slavery in America and the World: History, Culture & Law, a unique database released free of charge on a global scale to help librarians guide their communities and create an environment for open and positive dialogue. Less than three years later, they announced another free database, Gun Regulation and Legislation in America, with the same vision. In 2020, they were proud to offer Civil Rights and Social Justice, another free research database dedicated to the fight for civil rights in America. In 2021, at a crucial moment in history, they released the Open Society Justice Initiative, as the fourth free database within their Social Justice Suite. In June 2022, in honor of Pride Month, they presented the LGBTQ+ Rights database to showcase the history of the gay rights movement, as well as the inequalities that still exist today. 

    To honor their core value of corporate citizenship, Hein offers these five databases free of charge to its core American and international subscribers, and to the libraries of any other interested organizations or institutions. 

    In this webinar Hein will give a demonstration of these materials and also discuss HeinOnline generally. They will leave time for questions at the end of the presentation.

    Presenter:

    Steve Roses is a graduate of Boston College Law School and Brandeis University. He has been with HeinOnline since 2009. Roses lives in Maplewood, NJ with his wife and two children and their two dogs and two rabbits. In his spare time he enjoys travel.

    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.

    Join LILRC as we welcome writer and director Ezra Edmond to discuss his acclaimed short film, Blewish.

    Being Blewish (Black & Jewish) can be frustrating, especially when people frequently assume that someone can't be Jewish just because they're Black. Blewish is the story of a boy stuck in the middle. Torn between either concealing or embracing his full identity, he learns how he can help create a world where no other child feels the pressure of having to make that choice again.

    Inspired by true events, Blewish, is written & directed by Ezra Edmond.

    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.

    Critical Information Literacy (CIL) is a pedagogical approach that addresses the systemic issues that exist within institutions of information. Ranging from Google and social media platforms, to scholarly publishing and academic databases, the oppressive biases and practices that continue to perpetuate the spread of misinformation, disinformation, discrimination, and hateful rhetoric is alive and well. Information Literacy librarian, Don Simmons Jr., will present the primary components to CIL, discuss why CIL is relevant for both students and faculty, and propose a campus wide initiative to integrate CIL into the classroom.

    Presenter:

    Don Simmons Jr. holds a master’s degree in Library and Information Science and a bachelor’s degree in Communication and Rhetorical Studies from Syracuse University; and as a student athlete, Don played Division-1 football for the college from 2011-2016. Shortly after graduating with his LIS, he began working at the White Plains Public Library as a Youth Services and Community Engagement Librarian -- hosting programs for children, teens, and adults. Currently, Don is the Information Literacy Coordinator and Student Engagement librarian at SUNY Westchester Community College. He primarily manages the library’s information literacy program and develops outreach activities for students. Over the years, Don has presented a three-part workshop series to SUNY Librarians, discussing Critical Information Literacy (CIL) and the influence of misinformation/disinformation on social media. He was also a lead presenter at the SUNYLA 2021 conference, covering CIL pedagogical methodologies and strategies for cultivating an inclusive learning environment. And in Fall 2021, he was a contributing panelist at the New Librarianship Symposia Series: Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion, hosted by the Library of Congress.
