Upcoming Workshops 

Beyond Diversity Initiatives: Recruitment of BIPOC into Archives and Special Collections Librarianship

Thursday, December 10, 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. (webinar)

Presenters: Azalea Camacho (Cal State LA), Amalia Castañeda (Cal State, Dominguez Hills), and Karina Cardenas (CSU Fresno)

Despite the growing focus on diversity and recruitment by library schools and institutions like SAA, ALA, ACRL among others, BIPOC not only remains underrepresented in the field, but many continue to encounter barriers within library cultures. This panel will discuss how institutions can leverage their strengths to build and foster diversity programs aimed to recruit prospective undergraduate and graduate students, and library staff and student workers into the profession.

What Can I Do With This?: Enabling Ethical Re-Use of your Content

Wednesday, April 22, 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

The InterContinental San Francisco (room TBD)

Instructor: Jodi Allison-Bunnell

Many repositories are beginning to explore--or are even committed to--methods to help their researchers clearly understand how collections may be used. These methods range from Creative Commons licenses for finding aid metadata, licenses and standardized rights statements for digital collections, to Traditional Knowledge labels for Native American materials. This workshop will offer both background about and hands-on practice in engaging these issues.

The Community Archiving Workshop: Audiovisual Collections Care and Management

Wednesday, April 22, 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

The InterContinental San Francisco (room TBD)

Instructors: Dinah Handel, Moriah Ulinskas, Pamela Vadakan

Many librarians and archivists find themselves struggling to manage unique and aging film, video and audio recordings, and often lack the training and capacity to create, manage, preserve, and provide access to their audiovisual collections. The Community Archiving Workshop provides an opportunity for participants to engage in hands‐on processing, inspecting, and cataloging of audiovisual media – both analog and digital – and gain transferable skills to support their own collections. Most importantly, we will be working together to help a local organization gain intellectual and physical control of their endangered audiovisual collection.
