Makerspaces, sometimes also referred to as hackerspaces, hackspaces, and fablabs are creative, DIY spaces where people can gather to create, invent, and learn. In libraries they often have 3D printers, software, electronics, craft and hardware supplies and tools, and more. Makerspaces are becoming increasingly popular in both public and academic libraries as a new way to engage patrons and add value to traditional library services. Discover how you can create a makerspace within your own library though this step-by-step guidebook. From planning your innovation center to hosting hack-a-thons, guest lectures, and social events in your new lab, Makerspaces in Libraries provides detailed guidance and best practices for creating an enduring, community driven space for all to enjoy and from which both staff and patrons will benefit.

Implications of Microaggressions

LLAMA Webinar Explores Implications of Microaggressions

Microaggressions are subtle, denigrating messages delivered to members of marginalized groups, and they can negatively affect an organization’s culture. Experiences of microaggressions can lead individuals to feel increasingly dissatisfied with their jobs, which may result in their physical or psychological departures from their organizations. The Library Leadership and Management Association (LLAMA) and the ALA Office for Diversity will present “Racial and LGBT Microaggressions: An Introduction for Library Leaders,” on Mar. 18, at 1:30 – 3:00 PM (Central time).

This webinar will define microaggressions, cover racial microaggressions and microaggressions toward LGBT people, and discuss how this affects librarians and the potential implications for the future of the profession.

By the end of this webinar participants will:

Understand the concepts of racial and LGBT microaggressions and their potential effects on the profession.
Be able to describe the manifestations of microaggressions in order to recognize when participants or their colleagues may be experiencing these phenomena.
Recognize strategies for addressing microaggressions in order to propose solutions to improve the climate at participants’ institutions.
Presenters: Alanna Aiko Moore, Librarian for Sociology, Ethnic Studies and Gender Studies, University of California, San Diego; Jaena Alabi, English & Psychology Librarian, Auburn University Libraries, Auburn, AL
