Open Carpentries Instructor Training Course

We are pleased to announce an open Carpentries instructor training course on 30-31 August geared specifically for the Library Carpentry (https://librarycarpentry.org/) movement supported by a grant to the California Digital Library (https://www.cdlib.org/) from the IMLS.
Open call for instructor training
This course will take place in Calgary, Alberta, Canada at the University of Calgary Libraries (https://library.ucalgary.ca/). The two-day course is open to anyone and the event will focus on preparing members of the library community as Carpentries instructors. The sessions will be led by Carpentries staff and community members, Karen Word, Juliane Schneider, and Chris Erdmann.
What is Library Carpentry?
For those who don't know, Library Carpentry is a global community of library professionals who are developing Carpentries-style lessons to train the library community in software and data skills.
There are a number of ways to get in touch with us starting with our Twitter account: https://twitter.com/libcarpentry.
Library Carpentry is actively creating training modules for librarians and holding workshops around the world. It's a relatively new movement that has received support from two IMLS grants, Shifting to Data Savvy (http://d-scholarship.pitt.edu/33891/) and Expanding Library Carpentry (https://www.imls.gov/sites/default/files/grants/re-85-17-0121-17/proposals/re-85-17-0121-17-full-proposal-documents.pdf). You can learn more about it by reading: Library Carpentry: software skills training for library professionals (https://www.liberquarterly.eu/articles/10.18352/lq.10176/).
Why should you get certified as a Carpentries Instructor?
Library Carpentry is a movement tightly coupled with The Carpentries, a project that comprises the Software Carpentry and Data Carpentry lesson projects. Since all are based on a train-the-trainer model, one of our challenges has been how to get more experience as instructors. This issue is handled within The Carpentries by requiring instructor certification. Although certification is not a requirement for involvement in Library Carpentry, doing so will help us refine workshops, teaching modules, and grow the movement. Also, by getting certified, you can start hosting your own Library Carpentry, Software Carpentry, or Data Carpentry events on your own campus or within your own organization. It's a great way to engage with your campuses and library community!
Prerequisites
Applicants will learn how to teach people the skills and perspectives required to work more effectively with data and software. The focus will be on evidence-based education techniques and hands-on practice; as a condition of taking part, applicants must agree to:
Abide by The Carpentries Code of Conduct, which can be found at https://docs.carpentries.org/topic_folders/policies/code-of-conduct.html,
  • Agree to teach at a Library Carpentry workshop within 12 months of completing the course, and

  • Complete three short tasks after the course in order to complete the certification.

The tasks take a total of approximately 8-10 hours: see http://carpentries.github.io/instructor-training/checkout for details.
Costs
This course will be held in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, funded under the IMLS grant RE-85-17-0121-17 and supported by the California Digital Library. No-one will be turned down based on inability to pay and a small number of travel awards will be made available.
Accommodation
Discounts will be available thanks to the University of Calgary Libraries at the on-campus Hotel Alma.
How to Apply
We hope to see you there! To apply for this Carpentries Instructor training course for librarians, please submit your application by July 15, 2018:
Under "Group Name" on the application form, it is extremely important to include "2018-08-30-ttt-calgary", otherwise, your application will not be considered.
More information
If you have any questions about this instructor training course, please contact chris@carpentries.org. And if you have any questions about the Library Carpentry movement, please get in touch with us:

ASIS&T 2018 SIG SI, IEP, SM Workshop: The 14th Annual Social Informatics Research Symposium: Sociotechnical perspective on ethics and governance of emerging information technologies

ASIST Annual Meeting, Hyatt Regency Vancouver
Vancouver, Canada, November 10, 2018
Submission Deadline is August 1st

The emergence and fast-paced development of technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), big data analytics, virtual and augmented reality, and embedded and ubiquitous computing present myriad forms of opportunities and challenges. For example, the increasing role of AI in autonomous systems (e.g., self-driving cars or production robots) and the role of social media in disseminating misinformation have created anxieties in our society ranging from discussions about safety, job security, and the future of democracy. Understanding the impacts of emerging technologies requires a multidisciplinary, sociotechnical approach; accordingly, this line of investigation must inevitably engage with major questions regarding sustainability, privacy, human agency, equity, and the ethics and governance of information technologies.

The Social Informatics, Information Ethics and Policy, and Social Media SIGs seek contributors for a full-day pre-conference workshop, the 14th Annual Social Informatics Research Symposium, scheduled for Saturday, 10 November, 2018 from 09:00 am - 05:00 pm during the ASIS&T annual meeting.

We seek proposals for one panel and three papers, in the form of extended abstracts, that examine theories or propose practical solutions to problems of ethics and sustainability in our technologically-dependent lives. We are especially interested in proposals that critique technologies in relation to developing countries, or global perspectives on information policy.

About the Hosts

The Chicago Dance History Project (CDHP) seeks to investigate, preserve, and present the oral and corporeal histories of theatrical dance in Chicago. It aims to honor the vast number of national and international dance artists with roots in the city; to surface lesser-known individuals, organizations, and venues that have anchored Chicago's strong local dance community; and to link various collections of historical knowledge and traditions with present and future generations. CDHP pursues three primary modes of research: conducting in-depth interviews with area dancers, choreographers, educators, advocates, and others associated with the form; hosting panel discussions and other events that facilitate collaborative explorations of specific historical topics; and discovering and digitizing ephemera held by individuals within the community. CDHP also establishes partnerships with area institutions and individuals housing dance archives in order to link the various strains of knowledge maintained throughout the city. These recorded interviews and events, along with the digitized supplemental materials, will serve as a public online library and a platform for establishing a body of original and collected research that examines how Chicago has shaped dance - and how, in turn, dance has shaped Chicago - throughout the 20th century and into the present.

The Morrison-Shearer Foundation was established in 1991 to preserve and exhibit the works and documentary materials relating to the careers of photographer Helen Balfour Morrison and dancer-choreographer Sybil Shearer; to maintain the Home and Studio as a source of inspiration for others; and to sponsor new creativity. Since the death of Sybil Shearer in 2005, the Foundation has been managed by a Board of Trustees, named by Ms. Shearer and guided by her wishes as expressed in her document "Purpose and Aims of the Museum" (1985). The Foundation's current priorities are to complete the publication of Sybil Shearer's three-volume autobiography, Without Wings the Way is Steep; to preserve and archive all photographs, films, letters, manuscripts, reviews and other memorabilia; to provide modest annual grants in support of current work in the arts, especially dance; to explore the possibilities of creating an artists' retreat at the home and studio in Northbrook, Illinois; and to share the Morrison-Shearer legacy through a website and other means.

Lake Superior Libraries Symposium 2018: ACT

Lake Superior Libraries Symposium 2018: ACT

The organizers of the Lake Superior Libraries Symposium (LSLS) invite Lightning Round proposals for our seventh annual conference to be held on June 8, 2018 at the University of Minnesota Duluth Kathryn A. Martin Library. The lightning round session will be held after lunch and presented to the entire group. Lightning round presentations will be 8-12 minutes in length.

This year's theme, ACT, invites attendees to tell stories of action. Although the theme is one word, the frame for ACT is Advance Challenge Transform. How do our actions as library workers advance, challenge, and transform the profession and the communities we serve? At LSLS18, we will share and celebrate the day-to-day practical work we do that often does not get recognition at conferences, and hopefully in doing so will empower each other to ACT.

Possibilities for presentation topics include:

Advance

What not-so-glamorous big projects have you completed that you're proud of? What tips and tricks do you have to share about getting stuff done? How does your library employ data-driven decision making? When is a time that you felt like you had a mic-drop moment in the library? What empowering stories do you have about working with your community?

Challenge

How have you challenged stereotypes and prejudices through programming? What steps have you taken to challenge the idea of what a library is and what it can do (e.g.

open mic nights, social worker assistance, dental service, etc.)? How have you faced and learned from failure? How has your library faced and learned from challenges?

Transform

How does your library transform the lives of your patrons and community? What initiatives are aimed at meeting the needs of traditionally under-served communities? How can we practically adapt to change? How does your library approach accessibility?

Successful lightning round presentations will be applicable to many types of libraries and showcase effective and innovative practices. All presenters will receive a discounted registration rate of $25.

Lightning round presenters should submit proposals here. All proposals should be submitted by Friday, April 28th. Presenters will be notified of acceptance in early May.

LSLS allows library staff to share their expertise, learn from their colleagues, and network to develop a stronger community of information professionals. Staff from all types of libraries are encouraged to attend. The event is organized and supported by library staff and educators from Northern Minnesota and Wisconsin; for a full list of our supporters, see https://lakesuperiorlibrariessymposium.com/about/supporters/.

For questions about proposals and submissions, please contact lslsorganize@googlegroups.com.

A complete listing of speakers, agenda, and costs will be released in April.
