Participate in WiLS’ Equity, Diversity, & Inclusion Survey
WiLS recognizes that many organizations, including libraries, have been increasingly focused on equity, diversity, and inclusiveness (EDI) efforts both internally and externally. One of WiLS’ values is an explicit commitment to equity, diversity, and inclusion. To that end, in mid-2020 they initiated an EDI working group composed of WiLS staff to formalize these efforts and ensure that they are doing the best they can to support member organizations in their EDI work. The following survey is one way for them to learn from members about the EDI work they have in place already and what additional resources may be of use to them.
The survey is available through March 31st. Feel free to connect with WiLS at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions. Thank you.
Continuing Education Highlights
Managing Digital Content Over Time: An Introduction to Digital Preservation - Scholarships Available
While many of the traditional resources found in libraries, archives, museums, and other cultural heritage institutions--books, photographs, objects--can survive for years with no intervention, digital content is much more fragile. Managing it requires ongoing care and preservation activities to ensure continued access far into the future. This online course introduces fundamental concepts for managing and preserving your digital content over time.
ABC Circus with Sharon Page and the Circus Dogs
Looking to add a spark to your “Tails & Tales” line-up? Sharon Page and the Circus Dogs are national-award-winning performers based right here in Wisconsin!
They’ve retired from live shows, but spent the past four months filming and editing a 48-minute video called “ABC CIRCUS”—the culmination of 25-years performing with animals. This was a labor of love for the 2021 Summer Reading Program theme “Tails & Tales” that will never be repeated!
