Braving Our Blind Spots: Using a Virtual Book Discussion Group to Continue Conversations on Implicit Bias in Libraries

Friday, February 10th, 10:30 – 11:45AM

Presenters will discuss the MLA Reads virtual book discussion group, created to inspire discussions on implicit bias. Since 2018, the program has provided information professionals with virtual safe spaces to learn, discuss, and process the implications of biases on their work and personal lives. Presenters will share insights gained from planning and facilitating multiple sessions to help readers confront difficult issues such as sexism, racism, inequality, and injustice. We will share lessons learned, challenges faced, and suggestions on implementing similar programs at other institutions.


Health Literacy in our Communities: A Conversation with the Network of the National Library of Medicine and its partnership with the All of Us Research Program

Friday, February 10th, 10:30 – 11:45AM

What are some programs, resources, and services that support health literacy in underrepresented communities? Bring your ideas and questions to this roundtable discussion where we will focus on health activities in libraries. We invite information professionals from different types of libraries to share knowledge and best practices around health engagement with the public, specifically focused on populations underrepresented in biomedical research. This discussion will also be an opportunity to learn about resources and tools to support health and research literacy in our communities


Diversifying Data Librarianship via a National Internship Program: Paid Practical Experiences for POC

Friday, February 10th, 11:30AM-12:45PM

In efforts toward diversifying the field of data librarianship and providing opportunities for grad students of color, a national center developed a 10-week paid summer internship program. The internship provides mentored data training, career guidance, and professional networks, and interns are embedded into the tasks and complexities of data librarianship, while being provided ongoing guidance for success. This presentation will detail the structure and assessment of the internship, working with external EDI-guidance in development of the program, and results from the first cohort.


Data-Driven Engagement to Underrepresented in Biomedical Research Populations

Friday, February 10th, 4:30-6:00 PM, Horizons East/West Room

Our poster will describe our use of community-level data from Census and HRSA, to identify libraries and organizations that are located within communities with underrepresented in biomedical research populations (UBR). To address this, we developed a data dashboard in Microsoft PowerBI that identifies Zip Code Tabulation Area (ZCTAs) to identify areas with significant representation of UBR communities. The authors will describe the dashboard development process including using Rstudio to access and manipulate the data, and evaluating data visualization tools.
