This webinar will explore how MIT Libraries have implemented the recommendations of its Diversity, Inclusion, and Social Justice Task Force, with a focus on the work of the Scholarly Communication and Collections Strategy department.

In 2016, the Collections Directorate of the MIT Libraries explored how to go beyond hiring and programming to manifest the values of diversity, inclusion, and social justice in our daily work. Staff from archives, technical services, preservation, scholarly communication, and collections strategy worked together on a Diversity, Inclusion, and Social Justice (DISJ) Task Force that focused on operationalizing these values in our policies, routines, and processes. We look forward to discussing the report of the DISJ Task Force and how we have begun to implement its recommendations, with a focus on the work of the Scholarly Communication and Collections Strategy (SCCS) Department.

Date: Wednesday, September 13, 2017
Time: 1:00 p.m. – 2:30 p.m. (Eastern Time)

About the Webinar

Digital literacy. Data literacy. Those are just buzz phrases. Or are they? What degree of expertise should students and faculty have in order to effectively wrangle data and/or work with digital assets? What are the basic requirements in the modern workplace or laboratory? It’s no longer a question of mastering word processing or spreadsheets. Whether it is data science or digital humanities, what enables us, what qualifies us to work with digital assets? And how do we know?

About the Webinar

Digital literacy. Data literacy. Those are just buzz phrases. Or are they? The first half of this two-part webinar addresses the needs of students, faculty and librarians in the context of information literacy. What degree of expertise should students and faculty have in order to effectively wrangle data and/or work with digital assets? What are the basic requirements in the modern workplace or laboratory? It’s no longer a question of mastering word processing or spreadsheets. Whether it is data science or digital humanities, what enables us, what qualifies us to work with digital assets? And how do we know? It’s the role of the library to provide the means for mastering new skills. How might libraries succeed?


We hear a lot about how to handle difficult patrons, cybersecurity, and protecting patron data, but have you thought about your library’s equipment and even the building itself?

Join us on September 21, for an Amigos Library Services online conference, Privacy and Security for Today’s Library, where we will explore why security and privacy is a hot topic for libraries.

Dr. Steve Albrecht, author of, Library Security: Better Communication, Safer Facilities, will kick off the conference with his opening keynote presentation: “Assessing Library Facility Security: Think Like a Security Consultant.”
