Diversity has been a major issue in pop culture lately. The demand to include traditionally marginalized voices in comics, movies, TV, and gaming has led to an explosion of material in the past few years. Join two fellow librarians (who also happen to be geeks) as they explore this issue and help you navigate all the content available with collection development recommendations that can work in your local library.

The Government Resources Section of the North Carolina Library Association welcomes you to a series of webinars designed to help us increase our familiarity with government information. All are welcome because government information wants to be free. This session will cover some of the key dates that impact access to Florida government information (e.g., statehood in 1845, codification of Florida Statutes in 1941, state depository program in 1967, privatization of Dept of Commerce activities in 1996), bibliographies and finding tools, scattered locations of digitized collections, and a few highlights of unique and interesting content.

The RDA Toolkit Restructure and Redesign (3R) Project is a year-long effort to improve the RDA Toolkit in several different ways. Restructuring includes generalizing existing instructions where possible, implementing the four-fold path (unstructured description, structured description, identifiers, and actionable links) wherever applicable, and incorporating new elements from the IFLA Library Reference Model. Redesign includes greater flexibility in the display of instructions, improved user interaction with the Toolkit, and better tracking of revision history. Kathy Glennan, ALA Representative to the RDA Steering Committee, will bring attendees up-to-date about the planned changes to the Toolkit, which will be rolled out in April 2018.
