CARLI has assembled a task force of the CARLI Board of Directors to address revising the CARLI Strategic Priorities to embed concerns related to anti-racism and social justice, and to identify and address topics related to improving equity, diversity, and inclusion in CARLI libraries and in the profession. We invite members of underrepresented groups to join the task force.

If you are interested in joining the task force, or would like to provide feedback to the task force, please contact CARLI Senior Director Anne Craig, at abcraig@uillinois.edu. The taskforce will meet via Zoom several times over the next few months.

CARLI invites you to attend the free Zoom performance Meet Harriet Tubman, presented by Kathryn Harris, on Tuesday, February 16, from 10:00 to 11:00 AM.

If you could step back in history, with whom would you like to have a conversation and lunch?

If Harriet Tubman is your choice, please join Kathryn Harris as she presents her first-person presentation as “Harriet Tubman”. Harriet Tubman is perhaps the most famous Conductor on the Underground Railroad and Ms. Harris tells her life story, including not only her own escape to freedom, but also the trips she made back South to free her family and others so that they could also experience the “sweet taste of freedom”.

For more information on Ms, Harris, who is retired as Library Services Director of the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library in Springfield, and to register, please go to here.

A friendly reminder, please submit your proposals by Monday, December 7.

The CARLI Program Planning Committee is seeking presenters for a series of webinars in Spring 2021 focused on academic library support of undergraduate research. The Council on Undergraduate Research (CUR) defines undergraduate research as “an inquiry or investigation conducted by an undergraduate student that makes an original intellectual or creative contribution to the disciplines” (2020*) Undergraduate research has grown over the past decade across the disciplines into a sought-after experience to demonstrate intellectual or artistic achievement in a student’s chosen field.

We are looking for presentations on a variety of topics, including but not limited to: information literacy programming; collections support; incorporating diversity, equity, and inclusion into undergraduate research support; outreach to undergraduate researchers or faculty advisors; collaboration with faculty, departments, or undergraduate research offices/committees; publishing; copyright; dissemination and/or preservation of undergraduate research products; or other services dedicated to undergraduate researchers. Presentations will be 30 minutes long, including time for questions.

Interested presenters (either individuals or groups) should submit an approximately 100-word description of their presentation. Submit your proposal here by Monday, December 7. For more information about the Council on Undergraduate Research and its mission, please go here.

Attention reference and instruction librarian staff! The CARLI Counts Technical Services team is investigating how you perceive the value of enhanced cataloging upon the process of identifying resources for a student and they need your input. Please take about 10 minutes of your time to fill out their survey, “Perceived Value of Cataloging in Identifying Resources for Students”. This team of librarians is part of the second cohort of CARLI Counts, a three-year project funded by an IMLS grant that prepares academic librarians to make effective use of research findings on the impact of student success.

You are being invited to participate in a survey research study. Your participation is voluntary which means you can choose whether you want to participate. You may withdraw at any time without penalty.

Project Title: Perceived Value of Cataloging in Identifying Resources for Students

Principal Investigator: Tammie Busch – Southern Illinois University Edwardsville

Co-Investigators: Mary Konkel – College of Dupage, Susan Howell – Southern Illinois University Carbondale, Mingyan Li – University of Illinois at Chicago, Ross Taft – Illinois State Library, Cathy Mayer – Lake Forest College, Dennis Krieb – Lewis & Clark Community College

The purpose of this survey is to assist a team of technical services librarians in investigating how reference and instruction librarians and staff perceive the value of enhanced cataloging upon the process of identifying resources for a student. This team of librarians is part of the second cohort of CARLI Counts, a three-year project funded by an IMLS grant that prepares academic librarians to make effective use of research findings on the impact of student success. This survey will take approximately 10 minutes to complete.

Potential Risks: It is expected that participation in this study will provide you with no more than minimal risk or discomfort which means that you should not experience it as any more troubling than your normal daily life. While there are no direct benefits to participating, your response will help us to better understand the research topic.

Potential Benefits: The survey results will help librarians and staff with cataloging responsibilities better understand what bibliographic information is most helpful to reference and instruction librarians and staff in locating resources for students. The study results will also help librarians and staff with cataloging duties learn what bibliographic information they should prioritize when cataloging resources.

Confidentiality: CARLI Counts will not be collecting any personal information for the study. All responses to this survey are anonymous and confidential. Your name or identity will not be linked in any way to the research data. If you have any questions about your rights or any other concerns, you may contact the SIUE Institutional Review Board, at (618) 650-3010 or irbtraining@siue.edu.

CARLI is pleased to offer a 3-week synchronous and asynchronous course on open educational resources. This course will be offered in September with the live sessions on September 15, 22, and 29 (all Tuesdays), from 1:00 to 2:15 PM. Asynchronous materials will be shared with registrants on September 10 to prepare for the first live session.

This virtual course includes material that was first shared with the CARLI membership during the “Open Textbook Network Train-the-Trainer” workshops in Spring 2018, and is designed to help the novice person learning about open educational resources to apply the information from this program to build their own local programs and workshops.

Attendees should plan to attend each live session. CARLI is planning to offer this program multiple times throughout the year.

The virtual program will contain both synchronous (3 live 75 minutes Zoom sessions) and asynchronous (readings, videos, etc.) to be completed before each live session. The live sessions will include presentations, but the aim of the program planners is that these will incorporate a flipped classroom model to build community among participants as all share and discuss the topics.

For more information or to register, visit the event page. Registration is available through Wednesday, September 9, or until the course is full.

If you have any questions, please send them to CARLI Support, at support@carli.illinois.edu.
