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:

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.

LAUC-R Brown Bag Professional Series – Feb. 19

For the Winter event in the LAUC-R Brown Bag Professional Series, Kat Koziar and David Rios will give a presentation on Wednesday, February 19, from 12:00 – 1:00 in Rivera Library, Room 140.

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 Cemetery.

Join us on the 19th as our colleagues fill us in on the pivotal roles they played in this unique collaborative project.

Call for presenter – LAUC-R Brown Bag Professional Series

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.

A Dim Sum of Conferences, July 24

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 conference?

An upcoming LAUC-R program titled A Dim Sum* of Conferences will address these and other questions.

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.

Trina’s presentation, Cassini’s Legacy: Saturn’s Secrets Revealed will be on Thursday, May 10, from 4:00 – 5:00 pm in the HUB, Room 269.

If you attended Trina’s talk in Orbach last May, you know what an engaging speaker she is! If you missed it, here’s your chance to experience her humor, knowledge, and behind-the-scenes insights about one of the landmark scientific programs of recent times.

Trina was the Cassini Science Planning and Sequencing Team Deputy. In that capacity, she focused on the exciting end-of-mission planning, which made headlines on September 15, 2017 as the spacecraft disintegrated in Saturn’s atmosphere.
