How do libraries stay relevant? This is a frequently asked question. We are confronted with this question in our day-to-day, throughout library school, and again as we navigate the professional space of librarianship. This webinar will share how a team of community college librarians re-imagined “what a librarian works like.” It will discuss an affirming process of re-envisioning ourselves as professionals, re-visiting methods of collaboration, and re-thinking outreach to better support our users in the evolving world of libraries and information services.

The 12-bar blues is a distinctively American musical form, which many diverse musicians have used to express their experiences and connect with others. Blues music provides a rich field for young musicians to create, perform, and respond. It also provides a lens to explore historical periods, and can empower students to express their own historical perspectives in an engaging, multimodal way. In this webinar, participants will experience several blues pieces from the Library of Congress. Participants will discuss how students can use these primary sources to develop musical and historical understandings, and how these understandings empower students’ own creative works.
