LACUNY Dialogues 2021 Theme:
“Can you all hear me...I think you muted yourself”: Learning to Work in a Remote Age and Staying Sane
This year’s LACUNY Dialogues will be a completely virtual event. Academic Librarians and institutions have transitioned into a new sphere of education and service that has not been seen by many in the field. Covid-19 restrictions have created an atmosphere that can only be seen through the lens of a computer screen. This clearly has ramifications on librarian/ student communication, mental health, the digital divide, etc.
This year’s dialogues will embrace this new academic world and discuss how libraries and librarians have adapted through initiatives both theoretical and in practice. Dialogues presentations are approximately 10-15 minute talks and are designed to be a discussion rather than a presentation.
Some topics may include but are not limited to:
· Student wellness initiatives
· Library Instruction via Zoom
· Issues with privacy and quality of teaching
· Dealing with zoom fatigue
· Virtual Study Halls or Office hours
· Dealing with technological mishaps
· Work/ Life balance while remote
This year’s LACUNY Dialogues will be held on February 19th, 2021 from 2-4 PM via zoom. Please use this link to register.
