While applications are accepted on an ongoing basis, the committee will next be matching a cohort of mentors and mentees this fall, so apply today to be an ACRL Spectrum Scholar Mentor.

Applications completed by Friday, November 4, will be considered for matches. Complete details, including a link to the online application, are available on ACRL Insider.

CARLI Counts is a continuing education library leadership immersion program that prepares librarians to make effective use of research findings on the impact of academic libraries on student success for the twin purposes of service development and library advocacy. Program participants will learn how to use local library data analytics in alignment with institutional data, goals, and strategic priorities to improve their services and demonstrate their value.

CARLI Counts deliverables will include a portfolio of local case studies, an evaluation of the collective statewide impact of those cases, and a replicable state/regional training model for equipping librarians to be campus leaders in assessing library impact on student learning and success, all of which will be made openly available on the CARLI website. CARLI is working in partnership with the University of Illinois Library at Urbana-Champaign and Lewis & Clark Community College.

Now (until December 1): Please submit your Library Application Form by Thursday, December 1. Please see here for program details, including the Cohort 4 Library Application Form and a sample Individual Information Form.

(via Cecilia Smith, University of Chicago)

The Institute of Library and Museum Services (IMLS) awarded the University of Chicago Library a National Leadership Grant to support the hosting of national forums on GIS librarianship. Organized in collaboration with the University Consortium for Geographic Information Science (UCGIS), the project–GIS Librarians for Open Workflows, or GLOW–will focus on the workflows of librarians and library staff charged with supporting geographic information systems (GIS) and its use across diverse academic disciplines. The grant will support multiple in-person forums, workshops, and coordination of existing and new open educational resources (OERs).

Apply now here to attend the in-person forum that will take place December 7-9 (Wednesday-Friday), 2022, at the University of Chicago Library. The deadline for applications is Friday, October 7, and applicants will be notified of decisions by Friday, October 21.

Travel, lodging, and meal expenses will be reimbursed for the applicants selected to participate.

Leading the project is Cecilia Smith, Director of Digital Scholarship at the UChicago Library and former GIS and Maps Librarian, in collaboration with Diana Sinton, Senior Research Fellow at the UCGIS. The Library will host exchanges with librarians around their existing consulting and instructional workflows and practices, and their development and use of open educational resources (OERs). To provide meaningful relevance for the GIS librarian community as a whole, the forums will ground these exchanges in concrete examples from social justice, health, and infrastructure application areas. The two forums being planned will inform the production and deployment of the commonly duplicated workflows and activities undertaken within university library contexts, building on shared vocabularies and practices. A second focal area includes review of current and future digital platforms regularly used as portals for data search and dissemination.

The Institute of Museum and Library Services is the primary source of federal support for the nation’s libraries and museums. The IMLS National Leadership Grant for Libraries “support projects of national impact that address significant challenges and opportunities facing the library and archives fields and have the potential to advance theory and practice.”

Please direct questions about the GLOW Forums to Cecilia Smith, at ceciliasmith@uchicago.edu.
