Come join the SILC’s book club for the fall semester, as we read Ijeoma Oluo’s So You Want to Talk About Race. We’ll host monthly Zoom discussions starting September 30th, engaging in thoughtful conversations covering Race in America and integrating anti-racist pedagogy for library instruction. The conversation will also be extended to our Facebook page, allowing members to post articles and reflect on the chapters we have read.
If you are interested, please sign-up to register– you will receive a personal invitation to our Facebook page and discussion questions prior to each meeting.
As we near the start of the semester, you may be like us – feeling anxious or nervous, or perhaps your motivation just isn’t there. Join us for August’s SILC Community Conversation, We’re Gonna Be Fine: Motivation and Self-Preservation for Fall 2020.
Once we’ve aired some of our concerns and anxieties, we plan to create a list of resources and ideas for self-preservation. Be prepared to share anything that’s helping you get through these unusual times (social media accounts, playlists, routines, plants, recipes, etc.).
We’ll be meeting on Zoom, August 20, 1-2 p.m. Email mbenson[at]binghamton.edu for the link.
The SUNYLA Information Literacy Committee is kicking off the start of the 2020/2021 academic year with an Ed Tech Showcase that will help inspire you with some new tools and ideas to try in your library or classrooms in the upcoming semester.
Each session will be held via Zoom. Email westb[at]geneseo.edu for the link.
