Bring Your Own Conference (BYOC) to Pasadena

Have you heard?  ARLIS/NA is instituting an unconference at Pasadena.

We invite you to attend the Bring Your Own Conference (BYOC) session on Sunday April 28, 2013 from 2:30pm – 4:00pm.
Join organizers and colleagues to determine the program topics and break into small groups for discussion and presentations.  This is an opportunity to extend conversations with your colleagues, hash out problems that have been on our mind, and propose solutions.  If you’ve attended an inspiring panel or SIG, then bring your ideas to the unconference to continue the discussion.  This is also a great place to talk about any projects your are currently working on in your graduate program.
Never attended an unconference before?  No problem!  In a nutshell, unconferences are flexibly designed to allow all participants to contribute their expertise.  The topics won’t be selected ahead of time (although we are gathering ideas on a collaborative Google Doc), and discussion rather than traditional lecture will be the order of the day.  Ideas proposed thus far are “Marketing Show and Tell,” “Apps Discussion,” “Wikipedia Takeover by Art Librarians,” and ” Interactive Tools in the Classroom.”
Please review information at the session wiki and add the session to your Sched. If you aren’t attending in person, follow along virtually with the Twitter hashtag #arlisbyoc13.
Contact Sarah Carter or Jill Luedke with specific questions or suggestions.

Book fair, Travel Grants, & more!

As always, you can also see what’s coming up through the Educational Opportunities Calendar. Keep reading for details about all the great webinars, grants, scholarships and more opportunities below!

Book Fair:

The annual Book Paper Scissors Artists’ Book Fair, sponsored by the Art Department and Philadelphia Center for the Book, is being held in the Lobby of Parkway Central Library this Saturday, December 8th from 10-4. More than 20 artists will be showing and selling their work. This festive event features prints, artists’ books, handmade paper, zines, origami, blank books, paper sculpture, and jewelry, made by local artists. If it’s paper-based art, it’s here. Come and buy, or just be inspired! You will find hundreds of affordable and interesting gifts for everyone on your list by artists working in different disciplines at all price levels. This is a great opportunity to view and even handle unique works of art, to shop locally, and to purchase items crafted by hand.

There will also be 2 free workshops, taught by graduate students from the Book Arts/Printmaking program at the University of the Arts:

A Tale of Two Pamphlets with Erin Paulson

11 am-12 pm FREE Room 108

The pamphlet is a simple and elegant book structure that lends itself to many purposes, from zines to a special hand-written letter. In this workshop we will learn both the three-hole and the five-hole stitch, and you will walk away with two completed books!

For teens and adults.

Thaumatropes: Victorian era toys for kids

with J. Pascoe and Erin Malkowski

2 pm-3 pm FREE Room 108

This workshop will explore the amazing versatility of thaumatropes — a children’s toy popular in the Victorian era that is now seen as a precursor to modern animation. Children will learn about and experiment with the thaumatrope as a vehicle to understanding basic animation, eye-hand coordination, and creativity!

For kids of all ages.

The Lewis Walpole Library Fellowships & Travel Grants:

The Lewis Walpole Library, a department of Yale University Library, invites applications to its 2013–2014 fellowship program. Located in Farmington, Connecticut, the Library offers short-term residential fellowships and travel grants to support research in the Library’s rich collections of eighteenth-century—mainly British—materials, including important holdings of prints, drawings, manuscripts, rare books, and paintings, as well as a growing collection of sources for the study of New England Native Americans. Scholars pursuing postdoctoral or equivalent advanced research, as well as doctoral candidates at work on a dissertation, are encouraged to apply.

Recipients are expected to be in residence at the Library, to be free of other significant professional obligations during their stay, and to focus their research on the Lewis Walpole Library’s collections. Fellows also have access to additional resources at Yale, including those in the Sterling Memorial Library, the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library, and the Yale Center for British Art. Residential fellowships, usually for one month, include the cost of travel to and from Farmington, accommodation in an eighteenth-century house on the Library’s campus, and a $2,100 living allowance stipend. Travel grants typically cover transportation costs for research trips of shorter duration and include on-site accommodation.

To apply for a fellowship or travel grant, candidates should send a curriculum vitae, including educational background, professional experience and publications, and a brief outline of the research proposal (not to exceed three pages) to:

Free talk:

The Columbia University Libraries invite you to attend “The Ethics of Visualization.”

This event is free and open to the public. Registration is not required.

TOPIC: The Ethics of Visualization

SPEAKER: Chris Alen Sula, Assistant Professor, Pratt Institute, School of Information & Library Science

WHEN: Wednesday, December 12, 2013

Noon – 1:30 PM

WHERE: 203 Butler Library

SPONSORS: Columbia Libraries Digital Program Division and the Digital Humanities Center

Visualization and infographics are widely discussed today, both inside of the academy and in the public at large. Academic departments as diverse as digital arts and humanities, cognitive science, and molecular chemistry have taken up the topic, and journalists like Geoff McGhee even claim that our future is one “in which data becomes a medium.” But despite its popularity and potential impact, “infovis” has rarely been considered in an ethical light. While there has been recent development on the philosophy of information, there is still little corresponding to an applied ethics of visualization and even less guidance available for information professionals. This talk examines the groundwork of infovis ethics and considers several ways in which visualization could give rise to obligations to/for certain groups. The conclusion will situate infovis within a techno-historical context, which raises broader issues of access, representation, and power with respect to visualization.

Webinar:

New Book Information Literacy Beyond Library 2.0

CHICAGO — In the three years since the publication of the best-selling “Information Literacy Meets Library 2.0,” the information environment has changed dramatically, becoming increasingly dominated by the social and the mobile.

The new book “Information Literacy Beyond Library 2.0” picks up the conversation, asking the big questions facing those who teach information literacy: where have we come from, where are we now, and where are we going.

Presenting answers from a range of contributors, editors Peter Godwin and Jo Parker divide their book into three distinct sections. Part 1 explores the most recent trends in technology, consumption and literacy, while Part 2 is a resource bank of international case studies that demonstrate the key trends and their effect on information literacy, offering numerous innovative ideas that can be put into practice. Part 3 assesses the impact of these changes on librarians and what skills and knowledge they must acquire to evolve alongside their users.  Among the key topics explored are:

  • The evolution of “online” into the social Web as mainstream;
  • How social media tools are used in information literacy;
  • The impact of mobile devices on information literacy delivery;
  • Shifting literacies, such as metaliteracy, transliteracy and media literacy, and their effect on information literacy.

Anyone charged with developing and delivering information literacy programs, as well as library professionals concerned with library instruction and digital technologies, will find the information in this book stimulating and useful.

Godwin is academic liaison librarian at the University of Bedfordshire, UK and Parker is the head of information literacy at the Open University Library, UK.

and

Note-2: Each post includes links to other presentation / sessions titles and speakers …

How are libraries using both physical and virtual spaces to meet the needs and demands of library users?

Libraries are changing from spaces where we “marc and park” volumes of print material into more vibrant and vital organizations that focus on both internal and external access to services and information.

CHArt 28TH ANNUAL CONFERENCE
Consume: Respond – Digital Engagement with Art
**The CHArt committee has extended the deadline for proposals to June 20, 2012.

 

 

Thursday 15 – Friday 16 November 2012, Central London venue TBC

Since its foundation in 1985 CHArt has engaged in topical issues in
Digital Art History. This year CHArt is looking at how new developments in information and communications technology affect the ways in which we engage with art. New forms of digital display or emerging modes of viewing art may have profound effects on both our understanding of the artwork itself (the way we consume it) and our ability or appetite for describing, curating and managing it (how we respond to it).

CHArt invites papers that examine emerging practice and where it impacts upon digital art practice, research and curation. Areas for consideration include:

* Control of authorship, ownership and access
* Collaboration and the interdisciplinary break-down
* Participation, quick response and interaction
* Consumption, re-use and mashup
* Mobile technology, apps and education
* Connections between art, interface design, usability and user experience
* Globalisation, agility, dissemination and big data
* Liquidity and permeability of digital culture

Contributions are welcome from all sections of the CHArt community: art historians, artists, architects and architectural theorists and historians, philosophers, curators, conservators, scientists, cultural and media theorists, archivists, technologists and educationalists.

Submissions should be in the form of a 300-400 word synopsis of the proposed paper with brief biographical information (no more than 200 words) of presenter/s, and should be emailed tochart@kcl.ac.uk<mailto:chart@kcl.ac.uk > by Friday, June 1st
Wednesday, June 20th 2012. Please note that submissions exceeding the stated
word count will not be considered.

Postgraduate students are encouraged to submit a proposal. CHArt is able to offer assistance with the conference fees for up to four student delegates. Priority will be given to students whose papers are accepted for presentation. An application form and proof of university enrolment will be required. For further details about the Helene Roberts Bursary please email anna.bentkowska@kcl.ac.uk<mailto:anna.bentkowska@kcl.ac.uk >.

International Librarianship event at Baruch College

SLA-NY invites you to an exclusive students-only event on International Librarianship featuring Jane Kinney Meyers, founder of the Lubuto Library Project.

Jane Kinney Meyers is a professional librarian with 20 years of experience working and living in Africa. While living in Malawi for four years, she developed a network of research libraries for the country’s Ministry of Agriculture under the auspices of the World Bank. Ten years later she returned to neighboring Zambia, where she worked on projects for the American Library Association and Johns Hopkins University. While there, she became involved with services to street children offered by the Fountain of Hope, a drop-in shelter in Lusaka, Zambia. Serving on the shelter’s board, she established a reading program and created a library for the children. Upon her return to the U.S. in 2001, she developed the concept, approach and organization of the Lubuto Library Project, based on the success and impact of the library in Lusaka.

Please join us at Baruch College on Thursday, April 14, 2011 from 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm for a presentation and meet-and-greet with Jane. This event will take place in Room 135 at Baruch’s conveniently located Information and Technology Building at 151 East 25th Street in Manhattan.

What to Wear

reposted from http://yalsa.ala.org/blog/2008/12/05/what-to-wear/

What TO Wear

Linda Braun | Conference, YALSA Info. | Friday, December 5th, 2008

What’s your look? Do you, or someone you know, have a professional fashion sense that you think others can learn from? Do you like to find just the right clothing that combines your individual style with a professional appearance? If so, then you could walk the runway at YALSA’s first ever fashion event hosted by Steven Rosengard of Project Runway Season 4!

We’re searching for 20-30 librarians who walk the walk and look the look when they work with teens and their advocates in libraries! We want to find librarians who can demonstrate how to dress professionally without having to spend a lot of money and while keeping a sense of personal style.

If you are interested in walking the runway, submit the What TO Wear application (file in pdf) along with 2 photos or a short video (no more than 3 minutes), that you think showcases your style (or the style of your nominee).

If you have questions about the application or process contact Nichole Gilbert, ngilbert@ala.org.

Art, Access, and the Public Domain after Bridgeman v. Corel
Public Panel Discussion

Cosponsored by:

Panelists:
Dr. Theodore Feder, President, Art Resource, Artists Rights Society
Christopher Lyon, Executive Editor, Prestel Publishing
William Patry, Senior Copyright Counsel, Google
Hon. Richard A. Posner, United States Court of Appeals, 7th Circuit
Maureen Whalen, Associate General Counsel, J. Paul Getty Trust

When: Tuesday, April 29, 2008, 6:30 – 8:00 pm
Where: The Great Hall, New York City Bar Association, 42 W. 44th Street, New York City

Who owns the Mona Lisa? In Bridgeman Art Library Ltd. v. Corel Corp.  (S.D.N.Y. 1999), Judge Lewis A. Kaplan ruled that exact photographic  copies of two-dimensional public domain works of art are not  copyrightable under U.S. law, because such images are not original.  Yetnearly a decade after that decision, copyright in many such images  continues to be asserted.

This program addresses questions currently debated across the  worlds of  art, publishing, and the law:

Should access to public domain artworks control uses of images of  thoseworks? When and how should custodians of public domain  artworks exercise  control over reproductions of them? How does contract intersect with  copyright in the control of image uses? Does the image permissions  hurdle play a role in the decline of art publishing, or are the  complaints of critics overwrought? What is the nature of the public  domain with respect to works of art?

This program is free and open to the public; no reservation required.  Seating is limited.
