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

For the Winter event in the

presentation on Wednesday, February 19, from 12:00 – 1:00 in Rivera Library,
David and Kat will speak on Supporting
“Along the Chaparral: Memorializing the Enshrined.”
“When UC Riverside
partnered with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs National Cemetery
Administration’s Veterans Legacy Program on a multi-year,
federally-commissioned project called Along the Chaparral: Memorializing the
Enshrined, Principal Investigator Allison Hedge Coke asked Data Librarian Kat
Koziar to build the foundation for the project’s data management” (UCR
Library News, May 8 2019). Kat used this opportunity to provide a wider array
of library support that included recruiting Special Research Projects Director
David Rios to assist with local history and archival genealogical research.
Along the Chaparral has multiple outputs, including two print anthologies, a
film, a documentary, live performances, and an interactive GIS app that shares
the life stories of more than 1,000 individuals interred at Riverside National
Join us on the 19th as our colleagues fill us in on the pivotal roles they played in this unique collaborative project.

tomorrow, Wednesday, December 4, from 12:00 – 1:00 pm in Rivera Library Room
140, the LAUC-R Programs Committee has arranged a brown bag gathering
where all can share:
projects in progress / on the horizon / being considered
- Questions and
We hope you can bring a lunch
and take this opportunity to connect with each other!
The first workshop will be Friday, October 18, 2019, 9:00-10:30
a.m. in Orbach Science Library room 240. The workshop will be repeated
Wednesday, October 23, 2019 in Rivera Library room 403, 2:3-4:00 p.m.
Presuming that the 2019-2020 CALL will be out before the workshop, Candidates who know they are up for review and those who think they may be up for review please READ the CALL prior to the workshop. Review Initiators are also encouraged to read the CALL. The result could then be that you could bring your questions to the session instead of having to go over points in the CALL in as much depth as last year.
The Programs Committee would like to continue hosting quarterly gatherings in its Brown Bag Professional Series.
Do you have a presentation you’d like to share with your colleagues in Fall 2019 – perhaps one you’ve already given, or one you’re about to give at a conference? If so, please let the Committee know sometime in the next few weeks. We can coordinate on scheduling the brown bag on a day that works for you.
Do you have questions about
the “alphabet soup” of library conferences – for instance, what’s the
difference between CARL, ACRL and CLA? Which conference covers my area, by
topic and/or geographically? What steps would I take to present at a
An upcoming LAUC-R program
titled A Dim Sum* of Conferences will address these and other
The program will be held on Wednesday,
July 24, from 1:30 – 3:00 pm in Rivera Library, Room 140.
At this informal panel-like
discussion, LAUC-R members will share their knowledge and experiences regarding
conferences at which they have recently presented, including ACRL, CARL, CLA,
CNI, DLF, LILi … and more! Light refreshments will be served.
This program is a
collaboration between the LAUC-R Programs Committee and the LAUC-R Research
& Professional Development Committee.
Join us to gain insight for
choosing your own “heart’s delight” of conference opportunities that may
further your professional growth.
