Registration is now open for the two-part CARLI webinar series “The Application of 3D Printing Services in the Academic Library”. The event will take place on Wednesday, May 26, and Wednesday, June 9, from 10:00 to 11:00 AM CDT each day. More information is below.

Driven to democratize access to emerging technologies and the knowledge it affords, the Academic Library is well positioned to provide access to 3D Printing services to support the design learning pedagogy in higher education. Additive manufacturing technologies allow you to design, 3D print, and test your design in real time. Join Elisandro Cabada to learn about 3D Printing and develop an understanding for how the technologies can be implemented in the Academic Library.

Elisandro Cabada is an Assistant Professor and the Medical and Bioengineering Librarian at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign where he provides emerging technology services to support higher education. His research interests include studying the barriers to access, pedagogical affordances, and application of emerging and immersive technologies in research and instruction. Elisandro is a recipient of the 2021 Best Emerging Technology Award, awarded by the ALA RUSA Emerging Technologies Section.

To register for the first session, please go here. Registration for the second sessions is available here.

Registration is now open for the CARLI webinar “Striving for Excellence, Achieving Perfection: What Went Wrong?”. The event will take place on Tuesday, May 18, from 10:00 to 11:30 AM CDT. A description of the webinar and information on the speaker are below.

Leaders and team members aim to attain goals, to meet objectives, and please all of their stakeholders and employees along the way. This webinar will focus on a key leadership distinction: excellence versus perfection, and how a leader or team member’s overall effectiveness is influenced by how aware they are of their own inclination (and that of their team members) toward each dimension. The discussion will cover the following topics.

  • What does it mean to be an “excellent leader or team member” versus a “perfect leader or team member”? What happens to a team member or leader, and the organization they support when their journey toward excellence diverges to a quest for perfection?
  • How metrics and key performance indicators can work for, and against a team member or leader’s effectiveness. And, how might one shape these important measures to motivate toward excellence.
  • Coaching team members who may be seeing the pursuit of perfection as a surrogate for achieving excellence. How to help them view their own contributions through the lens of excellence, and to help them refocus their efforts and energy accordingly.

Presenter Garry Sanders is Principal, AssistLeadership, LLC and is an Executive Coach having earned a Certificate in Leadership Coaching from Georgetown University, and the designation of Professional Certified Coach by The International Coaching Federation. He is coaching leaders and team members at universities, businesses, and government agencies around the United States. He says that he “practices imperfection daily.”

The CARLI Preservation Committee invites you to attend the webinar Incoming Library Collections: A Unified Approach to Newly Acquired Material, presented by Tonia Grafakos on Tuesday, April 20, at 10:00 AM CDT. More information is below.

New collections come from a variety of sources. Whether a gift, donation, or acquisition, all incoming materials present challenges to libraries. Collections are often varied and are rarely comprised of one type of material. Their history may not be entirely known to the donor. Curators may not be aware of physical or technology related issues within a collection. Library staff in different departments each have their own sets of questions regarding incoming material. This presentation will review how one institution unified its process for incoming collections. Special attention will be paid to preservation issues relating to incoming collections.

Tonia Grafakos is the Marie A. Quinlan Director of Preservation at Northwestern University Libraries. She is a Professional Associate member of the American Institute for Conservation and earned an MSIS with an Advanced Certificate in Conservation from the University of Texas at Austin. Prior to Northwestern she was the Harper Inglis Conservation Fellow at the Library of Congress and she gained additional conservation experience working at Harvard University, Harry Ransom Research Center, and the Pinos y Sarriera Archives.

Registration is required. If you have any questions, please e-mail CARLI Support, at support@carli.illinois.edu. This webinar will not be recorded.

Call for Volunteers: CARLI Committees (Deadline Wed., April 28)

(via Michelle Haake, CARLI)

CARLI is seeking volunteers to serve on advisory committees. The application period will close on Wednesday, April 28, at 5:00 PM CDT. Terms on these committees will begin July 1, 2021. Faculty and staff members from all CARLI member libraries, with all levels of experience, are encouraged to apply.

Service on CARLI committees affords individuals a unique opportunity to use their experience and expertise to help shape the future of the consortium and its services. In 2020, due to the migration to Alma & Primo VE and the need to reevaluate the committee calls in order to realign them with our current needs, we suspended the call for volunteers for one year. As a result, CARLI committees will have a greater number of openings for terms beginning July 1, 2021, and committee terms may be two or three years.

To volunteer, please complete the volunteer form by April 28.  To be considered for appointment, you must fill out this online form even if you have previously submitted a form, or if you are a current committee member whose term is expiring and you wish to be considered again. CARLI seeks to include as many individuals and institutions as possible in committee service, so committee rosters are limited to one person from any institution. Committee members are not routinely reappointed.

Forms submitted by April 28 will be considered for initial FY 2022 appointments. The list of all volunteers will be retained until March 1, 2022, and will be used to fill vacancies if they occur.

Individuals accepting appointments to CARLI committees are expected to participate fully and actively in the work of the committee, including regular attendance at meetings and committee-sponsored events held throughout the calendar year. CARLI makes every effort to conduct the majority of committee business by web conferencing or via conference calls. However, committee service may require time and/or travel expenses for one or more in-person meetings each year.

The following CARLI committees are seeking members.

  • Collection Management Committee
  • Commercial Products Committee
  • Created Content Committee
  • Instruction Committee
  • Open Educational Resources Committee
  • Preservation Committee
  • Public Services Committee
  • Resource Sharing Committee
  • Technical Services Committee

The CARLI staff will make appointments to be approved by the Senior Director and the Executive Committee of the CARLI Board of Directors no later than June 15, 2021.

Please send questions about CARLI committees and task forces, or the process for selecting volunteers, to support@carli.illinois.edu.
