LAUC-R Librarian Colleague Check-In (Thursday, Mar. 3, 2022 12-1 PM) – In Gather

Next week Thursday, March 3, 2022, 12:00-1:00 PM, the LAUC-R Committee on Programs will once again be hosting our bi-monthly colleague check-in.

This check-in meeting will take place in Gather. NOTE: you do not need to log in or sign in to participate in our check-in meeting. However, please plan on joining at the top of the hour to allow yourself at least 5 minutes to customize your avatar, plus there is a mini-tutorial to walk you through the basics of navigating and interacting with objects throughout the meeting space.

The only thing you will absolutely need is the link: https://app.gather.town/app/74vgK2yjVxu7wken/LAUC-R

Please make sure to use a device with speakers/headphones and a microphone. And for the best all-around experience a camera/web-camera as well.
NOTE: Gather on a mobile device has limited functionality. Using a Desktop device is suggested. The most important tips involve movement and opening and closing interactive objects.

  • Move by using arrows or right click on where you want to go and select “move here”
  • Open interactive objects by pressing x
  • Close out of interactive objects by clicking on the x in the upper right-hand corner or hitting the esc key.

Shout out to Michele Potter for suggesting Gather and for setting up our meeting space.

Invitation to LAUC Assembly 2022!

Assembly is just a few weeks away!

Date:
Assembly will take place as originally scheduled on March 15 at UCSB

Format:
In-person/hybrid

Programming:

  • The in-person program on March 15 will focus on the business meeting in the morning, with more informal LAUC-related conversation and campus tours in the afternoon
  • At least the business meeting will be held both in-person and on Zoom

Bonus:
We will hold additional LAUC-wide programming (discussions about PI status, DEI issues, etc.) virtually, separate from Assembly, over the course of the remaining academic year

Assembly webpage and registration

  • Webpage and registration: https://lauc.ucop.edu/calendar/statewide-assembly-2022
  • Funding: We don’t want travel cost to be a hindrance for anyone, so I am pleased to report that we will have grant funds available to cover Assembly travel for many of our members! You can request such funding on the registration page.

Rationale

Our Assembly Planning Committee weighed many considerations and ultimately focused on accomplishing two main goals:

1) The first goal in planning and hosting an Assembly is to maintain the tradition of assembling in person and physically experiencing a different campus each year. The LAUC bylaws support this structure, in that each campus is to send 2-5 members/delegates each year to represent the librarians on those campuses.

2) An additional goal is to engage our membership in thought-provoking discussions about issues affecting librarians. Our last two Assemblies, held virtually due to the pandemic, established that these heavier discussions may be richer when they include as many LAUC members as possible. To that end, they are often well suited to a virtual format that can host more people. We find that, at least this year, these sessions should be held outside of Assembly and spread out over the course of the academic year, so as to not overwhelm members with one-day, nonstop programming.

The current division of programming allows us to meet both of our goals and to include the largest number of total participants. The survey responses we received confirmed that there is significant interest in both in-person and virtual components. While we know that there is no perfect solution that will satisfy all needs, we are confident that the current plan provides the best possible balance.

LAUC-R Colleague Check in Tomorrow at Noon

Our LAUC-R Colleague check-in will be tomorrow, August 27 from 12:00 – 1:00 pm.

Spend a lunch hour in conversation with your colleagues! Topics may include:

  • your thoughts on how LAUC-R can support you in the year ahead
  • professional accomplishments, projects, and conferences attended this summer.
  • how we’re adapting to the differences of working remotely: technology, time management, colleague and patron interaction – you name it!

Please see the calendar item attached to the email announcement for how to connect to the meeting.
