Special Collection Internships: Expectations, Disappointments and Responsibilities
As the archives profession becomes more competitive, it is critical that the internship for graduate-level academic credit is practical for future responsibilities. A carefully planned internship will guide a student who has yet to decide their direction in the field. This requires being paired with the best possible location from which to learn. Collaboration during the interview process is essential in determining the right fit for both intern and organization. This discussion seeks to advise students and young professionals to become advocates for their professional education, and for future supervisors to be prepared for this great responsibility.
Speaker: Nicole Menchise, Long Island Library Resources Council

Time: 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm
The Quiet Solidarity of National Coming out Day through Queer Storytelling and CoffeeQueer support and visibility is important to an institution’s campus in suburban New York. This requires assessing queer representation on campus first, in order to understand and serve a community. Especially for queer and non binary folks, it is important to build relationships with existing LGBTQIA+ campus clubs and offices of inclusion and diversity. Engaging with these groups, and individual queer/nonbinary folks that do not feel represented creates a conversation that can culminate in the library. In hosting an all-day event for National Coming Out Day it engaged and built upon the work/experiences of these other groups.Speaker: Adrianna Martinez, New York Institute of Technology

Time: 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm
Free & Global: Family Research Resources for a Global CityAs part of a 3-year project, funded by the National Archives/NHPRC, a St. John’s University Librarian and St. John’s University graduate students worked with established local and national community partners to curate guides to free resources and to provide ongoing research support for NYC High School teachers and students to research their family histories in light of motivating World History factors that contribute to migration and immigration into New York City. In this presentation, the Project PI and 2 DLIS graduate students will discuss the resources available to all libraries, focusing on family and Oral History resources and plans for expansion of the resource guide. ​

Speaker(s): Prof. Kathryn Shaughnessy, Project PI and Open Education Librarian, St. John’s University; Julianna Odin, SJU-DLIS Student; Leanna Manna, SJU-DLIS  ​
