Ignite Sunday Session: human libraries: bringing personal stories to research and learning Program Las Vegas Convention Center
N239/241
Description :

Libraries are all about books and journals and finding ways for people to acquire information. Wait, there’s more! We implemented the "augustana human library" where PEOPLE are the information! In the form of "human books", people tell their story typically of lived prejudice or discrimination (born with one arm, being transgender, sex addiction) or about unique life experiences (war vet, overcoming drug addiction, being adopted). We have students attend these sessions learning about their topic of research from a human first and then approach the scholarly resources. Adding the human touch to student learning and research!

Ignite Sunday Session: The Ally-brarian Program Las Vegas Convention Center
N239/241
Description :

How does a librarian assist an underserved population that they are not a part of? They become an ally. The “Ally-brarian” works to help those who would normally not “see themselves” in the library, either as a patron or professional, find a welcoming place. This session will outline how those who are part of a majority have the ability, and the responsibility, to use their capacity as librarians to advocate for those in the minority. It will also demonstrate how allies are crucial to promoting inclusivity in libraries, both in who they serve and who they employ.

Conversation Starter: Data for Librarians Program Las Vegas Convention Center
N239/241
Description :

In an era of tight budgets and finite resources libraries are using data to make decisions and justify the spending of time and money. Many librarians don’t come from a data heavy background and are unsure of how to approach collecting the data they need or evaluating the data they already have. You don’t have to be a math whiz to work with data! This session will give a librarian friendly crash course in what data is, how to collect reliable data, and how to interpret it.
