People who protect and care for collections are often concerned about the negative impacts of their work on the environment and climate. Fortunately there are resources and practices that augment what you likely already do to limit waste and save money. And there is social science research to guide us in understanding how to adapt behaviors while remaining positive. We’ll explore a variety of approaches that you can take as an individual to ‘green’ your work, AND we’ll consider steps to take to encourage your institution and your peers to join you in making these shifts.
Participating in this free nonprofit webinar, “Why Build Relationships With Grantmakers”, will strengthen your relationship-building efforts and grant writing results in your grant seeking strategy.

Join this webinar to hear literature and disability studies scholar Crystal Yin Lie offer an introduction to graphic narratives as academic resources, focusing on their utility for framing urgent discussions around topics such as bearing witness to trauma, social injustice, and identity politics. Dr. Lie will draw from her areas of specialization (disability studies/health humanities/contemporary literature and life writing) to demonstrate how the comic medium uniquely—and critically—reframes narratives of disability, illness, and health.
Today's students are accustomed to having information and communication tools at their fingertips—and they expect nothing less from their higher education experience. Technology has become an even more integral part of the student experience over the past several months and, no matter what the coming months bring, the expectation that institutions be prepared to deliver an effective anytime, anywhere experience won't fade.
No two readers are alike, and your library’s collection should reflect the vast readership looking to see themselves in books. Join us Tuesday, September 14 at 1 p.m. CT for a free, one-hour webinar discussing titles that celebrate identities of all kinds.
