Session 2a: "Keep Shining, Keep Smiling...": Lis Collegiality Through A Relational-Cultural Lens, Lalitha Nataraj, Torie Quinonez, Toni Olivas 2018 California State University, San Marcos

Session 2a: "Keep Shining, Keep Smiling...": Lis Collegiality Through A Relational-Cultural Lens, Lalitha Nataraj, Torie Quinonez, Toni Olivas

POC in LIS Summit

Applying the “Relational-Cultural Theory” model (which arose from work done by the Stone Center Theory Group at Wellesley College in 1977 by Miller, Jordan, Stiver, & Surrey), three female library faculty members of color at different professional stages of their careers (tenured, tenure-track, lecturer-transitional) explore how collegiality borne out of a mutual awareness and understanding of their intersectional identities fostered a supportive environment to engage in critical inquiry, grow as teachers, and also provide meaningful context to professional activities.

RCT pushes back against the dominant culture of “valorizing separation and autonomy” which underscores socio-cultural privilege. Rather, it is through relational empowerment--strengthening ...

In an 87% white profession, it is no secret that many academic librarians of color feel ostracized by white notions of professionalism, suffering from microaggressions regularly at their institutions. As many librarians of color have noted, the whiteness of librarianship manifests itself from the beginning--in the library and information science (LIS) programs--and continues throughout our careers, becoming more pronounced the higher we go up the hierarchy. As the 2017 Ithaka S+R report Inclusion, Diversity and Equity: Members of the Association of Research Libraries found, “as positions become increasingly senior, they also become increasingly white.” Providing support and guidance to ...

Session 1a: Discovering Accessibility Stories, Sheree Fu, Shalini Ramachandran

POC in LIS Summit

We are two science and engineering librarians at USC who studied partnerships, accessible instruction, and assistive technology within the USC campus. As we conducted research, we were intrigued by the conversations we had with librarians, staff, and students. The invisible injuries to community members with disabilities and resistance to change from leadership were eye-opening for us. Despite diversity being a strategic vision in many universities, discussion of disability is still often pushed to the margins. Uncovering oppressive structures in institutional settings takes not only intellectual work but also legwork, active listening, and openness to unexpected discoveries. Disrupting dominant narratives can ...


Session 1a: Retention Of Former Residents In Librarianship: A Preliminary Exploration, Katherine Donaldson 2018 University of Oregon

Session 1a: Retention Of Former Residents In Librarianship: A Preliminary Exploration, Katherine Donaldson

POC in LIS Summit

Librarian residency programs have served as one means by which libraries have attempted to recruit people of color to the profession. These programs are aimed at recent graduates of MLS programs and are meant to provide them with professional experience, often by exposing them to different areas of librarianship through departmental rotations during a 1-3 year term position. While these programs are by no means new, there has been an increase in interest in residency programs, as evidenced in the recent creation of the Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL) Diversity Alliance, a group of over 30 universities that ...


Session 1a: Inclusive Programming Motivated By Staff, Cynthia Palacios 2018 Loyola Marymount University and Loyola Law School

Session 1a: Inclusive Programming Motivated By Staff, Cynthia Palacios

POC in LIS Summit

Understanding your communities need and tailoring programming based on those needs can be challenging for all, particularly for early-career librarians. In this presentation, I will speak about my unique experience at the Ramona Library, a San Diego County Library branch, as a librarian tasked with creating programs for a rural community. During this presentation examples of staff collegiality in addressing and embracing the culture of the community will be discussed in addition to its benefits pertaining to professional self-care. Attendees will learn about my experience with community-based programming using the concept of “for the community by the community”. As a ...

Session 1b: Women Of Color In Academic Library Leadership: A Testimony To Resilience, Theresa Byrd

POC in LIS Summit

Women of Color in Academic Library Leadership: A Testimony to Resilience A senior African-American library leader, who has served in three types of academic libraries, will discuss the challenges librarians of color face in academic libraries and academic professional associations, such as culture, gender, isolation, microaggressions, and stereotypes. She will explore the duality of librarians of color: race and profession in white institutions, and how race may impact one’s job. This library leader will stress the ways in which minority librarians can avoid getting trapped in what she calls the “ghetto” of academic libraries. Finally, the presenter will provide ...

Ethical Framework for Library Publishing

Inspired by discussions at the 2017 Library Publishing Forum, the Ethical Framework for Publishing 1.0 was created by the members of the Ethical Framework for Library Publishing Task Force, with the assistance of many community members who served as peer reviewers and workshop participants, as well as the staff of the Educopia Institute. The Framework introduces library publishers to important ethical considerations in a variety of areas and provides concrete recommendations and resources for ethical scholarly publishing. As the version number in the title suggests, the document is meant to evolve - to be updated and expanded over time.


If We Build It, They Will Come: Improving Cala’S Institutional Repository, Sai Deng 2018 University of Central Florida

If We Build It, They Will Come: Improving Cala’S Institutional Repository, Sai Deng

Sai Deng

The Chinese American Librarians Association (CALA)’s Academic Resources & Repository System (CALASYS) is an important initiative to curate its members’ research works, the organizational archival materials, and other cultural resources. CALASYS uses Omeka, an open source web-publishing platform, to store, link, display, and exhibit its collections. During its development, several aspects of the platform have been significantly improved due to the effort of the CALASYS Group and the CALA members.

To meet the emerging needs for improving data entry, description and access, the CALASYS group has explored and implemented multiple plugins. Among those implemented are Library of Congress (LC) Suggest, CSV Import, and Zotero Import. LC Suggest facilitates the cataloging process by offering auto-completion of subjects; it is linked to various authorities and is synchronous to updates thus helps improve the quality and consistency of metadata. CSV Import and Zotero Import both are instances of batch upload. This poster will demonstrate the improvements brought by plugins as well as the pros and cons of the selected plugins.

Meanwhile, the CALASYS group has been diligently building its collections by reaching out to the CALA members, chapters, committees and task forces. They have also been proactively promoting the platform among the CALA members via mailing lists and social media ...

After careful comparison and selection, Omeka, a content management system for online digital resources, was chosen. Omeka is open source and thus free with a stable group of developers for a long time. While Omeka is an ...

A Documentary-Material Approach For Performance, Marc Kosciejew 2018 University of Malta

A Documentary-Material Approach For Performance, Marc Kosciejew

Proceedings from the Document Academy

This article begins a conceptual discussion about the relationship between documentation, performance, and materiality. It argues that a documentary approach helps show the roles played by documents and practices with them in performance’s materialization and constitution. It presents the start of a documentary approach for analyzing performance by discussing some ways in which documentation helps provide a material basis for performance beyond its enactment whilst simultaneously materializing and constituting it in and for other diverse contexts.
