We invite proposals addressing this year’s conference theme, Students Are Evolving, Are Libraries Adapting?

Today’s academic libraries face challenges to the traditional model. Students are using technology, social media, and academic spaces in new ways. How are librarians educating the students of today and supporting their needs?  The LACUNY Institute seeks to explore strategies and address best practices promoting new library models.​

Topics include, but are not limited to: 

  • renovation needs
  • new electronic resources
  • changes to the ways physical space is used
  • improved marketing and/or signage
  • new modes of collaboration
  • alternate library partnerships
  • changes in design, and/or changes in library service platforms, among others.

Types of proposals:

  • Panel discussion (15 minutes/presenter): Moderated panel presentations with time for questions and discussion.
  • Interactive presentation (45 minutes): Teams of two lead a discussion on topic of their choice related to the theme, with 1 person presenting context and the other facilitating conversation.
  • Alt-sessions (15-30 minutes): An opportunity for exploring topics through multiple ways of knowing (e.g., short documentary, spoken word, performance art).
  • Poster sessions

  • Examining Privilege in Classifications: Connecting Critical Information Literacy to Conversations on ‘Latinx’

A webinar sponsored by the Office for Diversity, Literacy and Outreach Services (ODLOS)

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar. Only the first 100 to log in will be able to attend live, but all registrants will receive a link to the recording.

When: February 27, 2019 1:00  p.m. – 2:00  p.m. Central Time (U.S. and Canada)

Description: The presenter will share and reflect on a recent roundtable event hosted by the Sonoma State University Library (entitled “To Be or Not To BeLatinx?”) in which participants discussed the intersections of identity, language, gender, and privilege encapsulated in the term “Latinx”. In doing so, the presentation aims to provide the audience with a foundation for creating programming or teaching opportunities that furnish library patrons with a critical understanding of the utility, limits, and hierarchies enacted by classifications—both within and outside library contexts.
