When Equity Is Optional:ESSA’s Fifth Anniversary and Early Lessons from Implementation  (Alliance for Excellent Education/Future Ready Schools)

The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) gave states much more flexibility in designing their school accountability systems.

Join us for a conversation on ESSA’s fifth birthday to reflect on early lessons of ESSA implementation and the implications for students of color and students from low-income families.

From a Big Deal to Platinum Open Access: How the Population Association of American and Duke University Press Converted Demography (Lyrasis)

In 2021, the Population Association of America will move its flagship journal, Demography, from a large collection sold by a commercial publisher to a platinum open-access model published by a university press. University presses provide high-quality publishing services ethically and mindfully, with a mission that aligns with university libraries. But creating a viable alternative to a commercial publisher presents challenges. In this roundtable discussion, players within the scholarly communications ecosystem—a publisher, a librarian, and an association leader—will discuss Demography’s financial model and how the community is working together to cover the journal’s publishing costs and offset previous revenue streams. At a time when openly available global access to population research is of critical importance, how can the scholarly community ensure that Demography’s future is sustainable? And how can university presses build on lessons learned from converting Demography to provide cost-effective publishing alternatives?

Why I Have Coffee with People Who Send Me Hate Mail (TED Talk).

Hundreds of “dialogue coffee” meetings later, Cekic shares how face-to-face conversation can be one of the most powerful forces to disarm hate — and challenges us all to engage with people we disagree with. 15 minutes. https://bit.ly/2Tzif1q

Addressing Mental Health in the Workplace (Training Industry)

Let’s face it: Work can be stressful. In fact, the Attitudes in the American Workplace VII report found that 80% of workers feel stress on the job, and nearly half say they need help in learning how to manage stress. Although the conversation around mental health is becoming less stigmatized, it’s still a difficult topic to discuss in the workplace. In addition to the red tape and legal concerns, leaders may not feel comfortable advising others because they, themselves, are also grappling with mental health concerns.

Policy: “Empowering Libraries and Communities Through Digital Lending (Library Leaders Forum)

The COVID-19 pandemic has demonstrated that the need for digital access to books and other materials is more important than ever, but our models for production, distribution, and access are not functioning to meet the needs of this moment for many. For the biggest publishers, book sales are up, and everyone agrees digital is the path forward, but what that means for independent/academic publishers, authors, and libraries is up to us. In this session, librarians, authors, and publishers come together to discuss what’s broken, what’s working, and the policies and practices we need to build a healthy information ecosystem for the 21st Century.

The Erased Labor of Digital Libraries (Lyrasis)

At university-run digital library shops, there is a growing demand for more cheaply paid labor than ever before. The immense, and perceived, backlog of items waiting for digitization and metadata is now colliding with born-digital materials and scholarly communications scope drift. This daily work is being disproportionately disbursed to part-time MLIS paraprofessionals, graduate students, interns and even volunteers. The tradeoff offered to these powerless groups is ‘professional experience’. While this gives students and paraprofessionals an edge on the job market, our conversation will discuss the financial, emotional, and perceived ‘cost’ of this tradeoff. This session will include live, but anonymized, data collection and active conversation with attendees. Results of the data collection will be published during the 2020-2021 fiscal year.

The Dewey decimal classification has long been the standard of organizing library collections around the world, but a First Nations tribal council in B.C.’s Central Interior says it will ditch the system because of its colonial legacy. The Carrier Sekani Tribal Council is transitioning to the Brian Deer Classification System, which was developed by the late Kahnawake Mohawk librarian Alec Brian Deer in the 1970s. Its taxonomy is based on the geographical locations of Indigenous communities. The session will include project planning and scoping, appraising the collection, classification development, tools and resources, and developing manuals and teaching guides for cataloguing work.

Customizing the New Pocket Response Resource (Lyrasis)

The new ArtsReady 2.0/dPlan Pocket Response Resource, (“PRR”), is a free document designed specifically for arts and cultural organizations. The PRR puts critical emergency information in the pocket (or device) of staff, crew and volunteers, ensuring they have immediate access to information they’ll need in the first minutes and hours of any type of emergency. The PRR and Instructions, available for free download, prompts organizations to collect critical contact information on one side, and critical action steps such as evacuation, crisis communications, situational assessment, and prioritizing assets to be protected or salvaged on the other. While the Pocket Response Resource is designed to be “do it yourself,” this webinar will provide you with guidance and recommendations to maximize the utility of your PRR.

Understanding Soft Risk in Volunteer Engagement (VolunteerMatch)

We all worry about the hard risks that can have an impact on our volunteers and the work they do, but too often we don’t think about the soft risk. Soft risks are the attitudes, beliefs and actions that expose our organizations to risks. Those risks may include the actions of staff – both paid and volunteer, interactions on social media, lack of training for leaders and volunteers – leading to risky behavior, and how failing to screen for characteristics or “fit” can open volunteers and the organization up to risk. This webinar is designed to help attendees identify soft risks in their organization and give them the tools to make changes to processes and culture to minimize and address these risks.

Level Up: Prep Your Literacy Toolkit (Utah State Library)

Libraries across the country are discovering that large print can effectively support striving readers, ESL/ELL students, and children with special learning needs. Large print isn’t just a bigger font size. Compared to standard print format, large print books are proven to help with decoding, fluency, tracking, and comprehension. Hear from librarian, Tasha Squires, who has found success after embracing large print and partnering with teachers to bring large print books into the classroom. She has seen wider usage, noticeable reading improvements, and happier readers! And because we believe that every library can successfully build and promote their own large print collection, we’re giving all attendees a 5-step action plan and helpful marketing materials.

Part 2: Grading and Assessment for E-Learning and the Modern Classroom, Grades 4-12 (Saddleback Educational Publishing)

The A, B, C, D, F grading system is as obsolete as a typewriter. The inherent issue isn’t that grading exists; it’s about how we’re grading. Deep down we know there are better ways to evaluate student learning than assigning a percentage, a number, or a letter grade. Informed educators are aware of the substantial evidence indicating that the new paradigm, Skills/Standards Based Grading (SBG), contributes greatly to meaningful learning. In this FREE webinar, you will learn how to develop standards/skills- based grading, even if you are required to use traditional letters and numbers as grades. You will also receive great resources to get started on your journey toward grading and assessment strategies that grow student achievement.

Advancing Racial Equity in Your Library (Public Library Association). Libraries strive to serve their communities with important services and programs, and they also contributed to our nation’s history of creating racial inequity by enforcing racialized laws. Although racial discrimination is illegal, many long-held library practices perpetuate racialized outcomes and maintain libraries as white spaces—often unintentionally. http://www.ala.org/pla/education/onlinelearning/webinars/ondemand/racialequity

Designing Libraries for Safety in the Age of COVID-19 (Library Journal Webcasts). As libraries cautiously reopen the doors of their physical buildings to the public, minimizing risk from the COVID-19 pandemic to patrons and staff is top priority. Expert architects share design tips for how to use the building itself, and its furnishings, to reduce transmission, encourage social distancing, and get the library ready for its next phase while preserving flexibility for the long term. https://bit.ly/3eKCvWW

The Human Skills We Need in An Unpredictable World (TED Talk). The more we rely on technology to make us efficient, the fewer skills we have to confront the unexpected, says writer and entrepreneur Margaret Heffernan. She shares why we need less tech and more messy human skills — imagination, humility, bravery — to solve problems in business, government and life in an unpredictable age. “We are brave enough to invent things we’ve never seen before,” she says. “We can make any future we choose.” https://bit.ly/31oRXnT

Turning Inquiry into Action: How to Engage Young Learners with KidCitizen (Library of Congress)

 

This presentation highlights KidCitizen episodes that engage young children in analyzing resources from the Library of Congress and connecting what they learn to their daily lives. KidCitizen is a freely available digital interactive designed to foster young children’s inquiry with primary sources.

By slowing down the act of looking, children discover new information and construct viewpoints as primary sources are mined.

Libraries in the Time of COVID… a discussion (The Library Corporation)

 

COVID-19 threw life into a tailspin for most Americans, and libraries were not spared.  With very few guidelines, and fear prevalent, librarians were left on their own to not only deal with the responsibilities of limiting services to their communities, but also handle the inevitable stresses of reopening.

School Librarians Can Save Democracy (edWeb.net)

Dumber? Or do these questions radically oversimplify more complex problems? In this edWebinar, Michelle Luhtala will present a case for the critical need for school librarians in every school, and the importance of equity in access to quality inquiry instructional experiences for all learners – not just for the future of education but for the future of democracy.

ASPeN Basics Course

ABOUT ASPeN:

Your Montana State Library utilizes a customized online database to conduct ebusiness with libraries and librarians across the state:  ASPeN (Access to Services, Programs, and eNetworks). ASPeN combines a calendar with online forms for reporting information to the State Library and registering to attend events. ASPeN also serves as the official directory of library operating hours and staff contacts.

ASPeN provides transparency in library operations and informative data, in keeping with Montana’s sunshine laws and providing valuable insights to stakeholders about the important work of Montana’s libraries.

Every Montana librarian and board member (not just library administrators) is encouraged to use ASPeN to update their information, report their continuing education activities, apply for services, and Montana State Library Certification. We know that learning to navigate ASPeN may not be easy for you, but we are committed to supporting you in learning how to use ASPeN with confidence.

ASPeN BASICS COURSE:

That’s why we have designed the ASPeN Basics course: one class per month, to start-up,rev-up, and polish-off your ASPeN skills – six classes in the course. Each class starts with a demo focused on specific tasks in ASPeN. The demo is recorded. The rest of the class time is set aside for attendees to get guided practice with the instructor as a guide. Each class comes with printable handouts and all the handouts are also posted to the ASPeN knowledge base (click on ASPeN help to access the knowledge base).

Take only the classes you need, choose whether to attend live for hands-on guidance or to view the shorter demo-only recorded segments. Get to know different MSL staff and, if needed, follow-up with your favorite person to get more training or review. Gather a couple pals to watch the demos and practice together.  Use the handouts as a tip sheet the next time you need to complete a task in ASPeN.  All the handouts together make a handy ASPeN users manual.

So…  find the classes in the ASPeN events calendar; login and register for the one(s) you need. Watch for the demonstration portion of the classes to be posted to the MSL Vimeo channel, and find the handouts in the ASPeN help section > knowledge base.

Happy and Healthy at Home: Student Mental Health and Distance Learning (edWeb.net)

 

Distance learning can be challenging and isolating for students, who may feel disconnected from friends and teachers. Educators can get a sense of students’ mental health and well-being in the classroom, but losing that face-to-face contact makes it harder to gauge how students are doing during this stressful time. While schools may have protocols in place to support struggling students on campus, educators may be unsure of how they can help remotely. Join this edWebinar for a discussion about this “new normal” of distance learning. We’ll dive into the trends of how and what students are doing as seen through Gaggle’s data, as well as how educators can keep students safe and connected while they learn at home.

What’s the most powerful literacy tool on your shelf? Libraries across the country are discovering that large print can effectively support striving readers, ESL/ELL students, and children with special learning needs.

Reading for Justice: A Database for YA & Youth Literature (Nebraska Library Commission)

 

The Reading for Justice Database aims to provide librarians and patrons with better access to YA and children’s literature book subjects centered around social justice. This database began as a project in Dr. David McKoskey’s Database Management course at St. Catherine University. The project then continued to develop through an independent study where the goal was to build a website and user interface for the database. The website includes a search page, report page, and an administrative page for editing. The presentation will cover the initial stages of the database’s development, the challenges of gathering data, preventing a “default” from skewing our data, and the overall process of connecting the database to our user interface. We hope we have created something that librarians and patrons would find useful for identifying books centered around themes of social justice.
