Libraries Transforming Communities (LTC): Models for Change - ALA/ACRL

Part 3 of 3 - National Issues Forums
Wednesday, November 15, 2017, 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM, Library West Room 419

 

The American Library Association (ALA) Public Programs Office, the Association of College & Research Libraries (ACRL) and the National Coalition for Dialogue & Deliberation (NCDD) invite academic library professionals to attend a free learning series that teaches several dialogue facilitation approaches and helps librarians position themselves to foster conversation and lead change on their campuses and beyond. 

Attendees of this professional development training will learn to convene critical conversations with people with differing viewpoints; connect more meaningfully with library users and better meet their needs; and translate conversation into action. 

Individuals who view all three webinars, live or recorded, will be invited to attend the free, one-day pre-conference workshop at the 2018 ALA Midwinter Meeting in Denver (Feb. 9 to 13, 2018).

Diversity, Inclusion, and Empowerment in Library Makerspaces
Wednesday, December 6, 2017, 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM, Marston Science Library Room L308

 

One oft-overlooked aspect of making and makerspaces is its potential for empowerment, especially among populations that are otherwise marginalized or underrepresented. In this 90 minute webinar, Lauren DiMonte and Sharona Ginsberg will discuss why making is important for these populations, and what libraries can do to ensure their makerspaces are safe spaces of diversity, inclusion, and accessibility. Although makerspaces have been on the rise in libraries, there is limited talk of inclusion and how to make spaces accessible to larger populations of patrons. The presenters will each speak from their respective institutional contexts, but they will also provide specific tips and actions librarians can take, regardless of institutional type or budget. The presentation will address issues of accessibility in the sense of eliminating barriers for those with disabilities, and will address inclusion in terms of physical ability, neurodiversity, age, race and ethnicity, religion, socioeconomic status, gender identity, sexual orientation, and community status (i.e. student, faculty, etc.).

 

Learning Outcomes

  • Participants will understand some of the challenges or barriers makerspaces might present to marginalized groups.
  • Participants will learn about and consider methods to address these challenges.
  • Participants will consider the impact of embracing (or not embracing) diversity and inclusion in makerspaces.

[ACAT] ALCTS webinar: NACO, authority control, and identity management: evolving strategies for a changing name authorities landscape
Wednesday, December 6, 2017, 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM, Library West Room 212

 

This webinar will identify strategies for coping with the challenges of NACO workflows today and explore proposals to shift authority work in the future from a traditional MARC-based footing to a new identity management orientation. Michelle Durocher and John Riemer of the PCC Task Group on Identity Management will describe the group's efforts to chart a new path forward for authorities that draws on linked data principles, synchronizes NACO’s work with that of other identity registries such as ISNI, and makes it easier for non-NACO libraries to contribute to the program through a more inclusive "NACO Lite" approach. Joseph Nicholson will detail some of the techniques UNC Charlotte is using to cope with a reduced authorities management staff and a backlog of names needing authorized access points. His presentation will describe how the library incorporates the work of paraprofessionals and non-catalogers and uses tools such as OpenRefine and spreadsheets to more swiftly create NACO authority records.

 

Learning outcomes: This presentation will explore the difference between authority control and identities management and their relationship to linked data, describe the PCC Task Group on Identity Management's proposals to align NACO's work with new developments in linked data and other identity registries and will stimulate thinking about different ways of handling and structuring authorities workflows.
