The Illinois Association of College & Research Libraries (IACRL) Awards Committee is seeking submissions for the People’s Choice Award in Scholarly Publishing. This award will give academic and research librarians throughout Illinois the opportunity to read and evaluate scholarly works by their peers and then vote on a favorite. It will also present Illinois research and academic librarians with the opportunity to share their findings outside of a conference or other formal setting. IACRL welcomes submissions on all subjects relevant to Illinois academic and research libraries.

The criteria for submissions, along with the process for choosing winners, are available here. ​The deadline for submitting a scholarly work is 5:00 PM Central Time on Monday, February 7. Please send your submission to Sue Franzen, IACRL Awards Committee Chair, at srfranz@ilstu.edu. If possible, send a link to the scholarly work; otherwise, submit it as an attachment, preferably as a PDF or in Word. If the work does not already contain an abstract or summary, please include one in the e-mail (a paragraph would suffice).

Once the Awards Committee has received the submissions and confirmed that they meet the criteria, voting will take place via electronic ballot in February or March. Voting will last for 30 days. The Awards Committee will then announce the winners, and those individuals will have the opportunity to present their work in a special webinar or at a future meeting of the IACRL Journal Club.

If you have any questions, please contact Sue Franzen, at srfranz@ilstu.edu. Thank you very much.

We are pleased to announce registration is now open for ILA’s 2022 Library Legislative Meet-ups. This annual series of events provides an opportunity to meet with your state and federal legislators and hear their thoughts firsthand about issues affecting libraries in your area. The ILA President will bring welcoming remarks; ILA Legislative Consultant Derek Blaida and ILA Executive Director Diane Foote will speak about Springfield and Washington legislative priorities.

Library trustees, directors, and staff from public, school, and academic libraries are encouraged to attend and participate. Our legislative events will look a little different this year as they will all be held virtually through Zoom. We’ll miss the interactive give-and-take that gathering over a meal allows in this webinar format, but there will still be opportunities for Q&A. What won’t change is our commitment to advocating for Illinois libraries!

The first Meet-up will take place on Monday, January 24, while the last one will occur on Monday, February 28Advance registration is required, and events will not be recorded (primarily due to the rapid pace of legislative developments, and content may change), so don’t wait! If you have questions regarding registration or you’re not sure which Meet-up covers your library and legislative district, contact the ILA office at ila@ila.org.

This year’s Virtual Meet-ups will be free for ILA members, including staff and trustees from ILA institutional member libraries. For non-members who wish to attend, registration will be $15.

To see the list of Virtual Meet-ups and register for one, please go here.

The ALA RUSA STARS Licensing & Legislation Committee is currently in the process of planning its free spring 2022 workshop, which will have the broad theme of “licensing 101,” and be free to all attendees. We would be grateful if you could take a few minutes to fill out our short survey, available here, regarding the specific licensing 101 topics that are of particular interest to you. The survey also has open-ended questions related to license negotiation and interlibrary loan workflows that will help us further gauge which topics would be engaging and relevant for our workshop.

Please feel free to forward this message individually or collectively through social media, resource sharing forums, or to local, state, or regional e-mail listservs as appropriate.

Thank you for assisting us with our planning process, and we look forward to your responses!

DePaul University Library and College of DuPage Library are pleased to announce that we will be partnering to co-host the 2022 the Information Literacy Summit in April. The meeting will take place virtually on Friday, April 29.

We are also excited to announce the call for proposals for the 20th annual Information Literacy Summit! We are seeking presenters to lead engaging and interactive discussions about information literacy and library instruction. We are especially interested in breakout sessions and panels which explore the evolving nature of information literacy and are related to this year’s theme, “Expanding the Conversation: Digital, Media, and Civic Literacies In and Out of the Library”. We hope to foster conversations across all types of libraries, schools and other organizations and encourage a diversity of perspectives in this proposal call.

In line with this year’s summit theme, we’re especially interested in proposals that speak to the following issues and questions.

  • Digital literacies: How do we make invisible algorithms (and their impacts) visible? What do critical digital literacies look like?
  • Media literacies: How do we engage with media literacy in the classroom? In our daily lives? How do we evaluate new forms of media and changing information ecosystems?
  • Civic literacies: What opportunities do we have to engage with questions around social justice and democratic participation? How does information shape civic engagement?
  • Partnerships promoting information literacy across departments, campuses, institutions: How do we work with first year writing programs to embed key literacies into the core curriculum? What are good examples of media information literacy resources that can be reused across institutions?

The Summit is a regional conference which will be held virtually. Breakout sessions and panels will be 45 minutes long and should include audience interaction or discussion. Panel discussions should have a three person maximum. Hands-on lessons and demonstrations (and/or practical takeaways) are encouraged. Sessions typically have 20-40 participants.

The submission should include a 300-500 word description of your presentation. Please include learning outcomes and a brief explanation of why people should attend your session and what they will take away. A shorter abstract for publication in the Summit programming will be required as well. If you wish to propose more than one session, please fill out a form (see below for link) for each topic.

The deadline to submit proposals is Friday, January 21. To submit a proposal or proposals, please go here.

The CARLI Preservation Committee is pleased to invite you to join a Professional Development Alliance (PDA) webinar “Working with Fire Professionals”, presented by Chief John High of the Illinois Fire Service Institute (IFSI) on Tuesday, January 25, from 2:00 to 3:00 PM CDT. This program, described fully below, will look at identifying fire hazards, how to prevent them, and how the fire department will respond to the call. This program supports the CARLI Preservation Committee’s efforts to share information throughout 2021-2022 regarding preparing for and responding to Disasters & Emergencies.

“Working with Fire Professionals” is an introduction to what fire departments do with a special look at Fire Prevention activities. The first step in fighting a fire is to prevent the fire from ever occurring.  Firefighters face a variety of hazards as they battle a burning building besides the heat and smoke. There are collapses of ceilings and walls, holes burned through the floors and live electrical and gas lines.

When a fire occurs, the results are often devastating to a family or business. Many items are not replaceable and for a business to be closed due to a fire can be a permanent closure.

People do not always understand how everyday items can help start a fire and how fast a fire can develop. This program will look at identifying fire hazards, how to prevent them, and how the fire department will respond to the call. The fire service goal is to protect life and property.

Chief John High, Sr., serves as the Illinois Fire Service Institute (IFSI) Fire Investigation and Fire Prevention Training program manager. John is responsible for scheduling classes, cultivating new instructors and assuring the program continues to meet all state and national training standards. Chief High also oversees an expansion of the prevention component as part of IFSI outreach.

Chief High joined IFSI field staff in 2003. He has been affiliated since 1994 with the Lynch Fire Protection District and currently serves as a Trustee. He retired from that department as Assistant Chief. Concurrently, Chief High served on the Danville Fire Department beginning in 1978 and retiring in 2012 as Assistant Chief.

Chief High is a member of the International Association of Arson Investigators and the National Fire Protection Association. He attended Parkland College and earned an Associate’s Degree in Fire Science. Chief High holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Fire Management from the Southern Illinois University at Carbondale.

The Illinois Fire Service Institute is the statutory State Fire Academy for Illinois. In addition to training provided at its Champaign campus, the Institute offers one-day hands-on classes for fire departments at Regional Training Centers and local fire stations across the State. The mission of the Illinois Fire Service Institute is to help firefighters do their work through training, education, information and research.

Please register for the event here. Send any questions to CARLI Support, at support@carli.illinois.edu.
