California Academic Reference Librarians Discussion Interest Group - South (CARL-DIG)

Registration is open for the 2020 CARLDIG-S Online Fall Program!

Title: Authentic reference: Advocacy and support for our communities and ourselves

Description: This program will offer an opportunity for library professionals to highlight and share their experiences, including those relating to recent COVID-19 and anti-racism work, with bringing their authentic selves into their library work. Authentic librarianship does not refer to a checklist of items through which we verify a job is done. Instead it refers to the desires and motivations we use to inspire us in our work, a sincere wish to serve not only our institution’s mission but our patrons in whatever task they are seeking to accomplish. This means bringing our full, authentic selves into our work. We all have different stories and backgrounds that shape how we authentically engage with our communities. Whether expressed through formal quantitative assessment, creative programming, practices in employee training, campus outreach, or alternative storytelling, we are looking forward to hearing you tell your library’s story!

When: Friday, December 4th, from 8:30am to 1:15pm

Location: Online!

Registration Rate: Free!

Our registration limit has been reached, and registration has closed

We are looking forward to seeing you in December!

CALL FOR PROPOSALS

“Authentic Reference: Advocacy and support for our communities and ourselves”

CARLDIG-South is hosting its annual half-day Fall Program entirely ONLINE, December 4, 2020, from 8:30am to 1:00pm. Titled “Authentic Reference: Advocacy and support for our communities and ourselves” this program will offer an opportunity for library professionals to highlight and share their experiences, including those relating to recent COVID-19 and anti-racism work, with bringing their authentic selves into their library work. Whether expressed through formal quantitative assessment, creative programming, practices in employee training, campus outreach, or alternative storytelling, we are looking forward to hearing you tell your library’s story!

Authentic librarianship does not refer to a checklist of items through which we verify a job is done. Instead it refers to the desires and motivations we use to inspire us in our work, a sincere wish to serve not only our institution’s mission but our patrons in whatever task they are seeking to accomplish. This means bringing our full, authentic selves into our work. We all have different stories and backgrounds that shape how we authentically engage with our communities. How does this play out in reference? How do we bring ourselves and our experiences to the table when providing reference services? How are we working to ensure equity and safety for our students? How do we take care of ourselves, so that we can be fully present when helping students? How do we balance our patrons’ needs with our own, especially during times of crisis? How are we modifying our services to address students’ virtual needs, including needs beyond simple resources? These are just a few questions that may speak to what you are doing in your library, and we want to hear about them!
