*Advocating for your Department and Library *

Dates: Tuesday, 6/4/2019 - Wednesday, 6/5/2019

Libraries are continuing to evolve not only technically, but also
politically. Due to the current political climate, it is becoming more
important for libraries to advocate for the values that they stand for,
including code of conduct, diversity, inclusion, and social justice. This
pre-conference will explore different ways libraries can be influential for
advocating for their services as well as their values.

Session 1

Organizing for Change

Tuesday, June 4, 2019, 1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m. CT

How do we get our libraries from where they are to where we want them to
be? Advocacy for the things that matter isn't magic. It begins and ends
with library skills: clarifying demands, making lists, talking to each
other, and coming together when it matters. Drawing on experience from both
union and library work, this presentation will offer strategies for
building power collectively in order to move us, our libraries, and our
communities forward.

Session 2

Trouble Your Magic: Technical Services is Advocacy

Wednesday, June 5, 2019, 1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m. CT

Library workers in technical services and technologist roles are
significant actors in shaping library cultures. How can we become conscious
advocates in our systems, standards, and initiatives? How can we challenge
the narrative that library systems happen elsewhere? This talk describes
ongoing tensions in technical services work while offering potential points
of entry for library workers interested in advocacy from 'behind the
scenes' positions.

This virtual preconference is co-sponsored by LITA and LLAMA , divisions of
the American Library Association.
