Serendipity, Tactility, and Community Library Research as a Practice of Wonder (Choice) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3j7DMXEXHBo : Getting students into academic libraries can be a challenge.

Drawing on her background in – and passion for – archival research, libraries, and teaching, Sonja Boon considers some similarities between archival research and library research, and suggests possible entry points for cultivating practices of wonder. She focused in particular on three aspects of archival research that have been central to her own teaching and research practice: serendipity, tactility, and community.

PNR Rendezvous: Health Insurance Literacy and How Librarians Can Help (National Network of Libraries of Medicine)

 

Libraries are prominent places in communities making libraries and librarians excellent resources for advancing health information literacy. For example, librarians can address the unmet information needs that leave many unable to make appropriate health insurance choices. For those with lower levels of health insurance literacy, the ability to procure appropriate levels of health insurance coverage may be limited, which can have dire effects on individuals’ health statuses. Addressing this critical information need, Emily Vardell, Ph.D., will present a talk entitled “Health Insurance Literacy and How Librarians Can Help.”

Playing Well with Others – At Work (Colorado State Library)

 

We all know that children learn through play, but what about adults? Research shows that when humans, at any age, play, they learn and grow into healthy, happy, well-functioning individuals. Find out more about the research on play, identify your play style as well as others, and imagine ways to add more play into your work. Perhaps counter-intuitively, your habits of embedding playful work techniques into your day can lead to greater creativity, productivity, and resilience in you and your library. And knowing others’ play styles will help build better teams, collaborative work, and enjoyable work culture.

Public Libraries Partner to Respond to the Opioid Crisis (WebJunction)

 

As communities across the country experience the impact of the opioid epidemic, public library staff are finding themselves on the front line of this public health crisis. How should libraries engage? Public Libraries Respond to the Opioid Epidemic with Their Community is an IMLS-funded project led by OCLC and PLA to expand libraries’ capacity to support their communities. The project studied a diverse set of communities where the library is an active partner in addressing the epidemic and facilitated discussions with library leaders and a range of government, public health, and community organizations. Presenters will share insights gained from the case studies and emerging practices, opportunities, and challenges, and share resources to help library staff guide their libraries’ response to the opioid crisis. This is the first in a series of webinars on this topic, highlighting the project findings.
