Women’s History Month Colloquium 2021: A virtual memory book

Cunningham Memorial Library’s Events Area is usually the venue for the annual Women’s History Month Colloquium (from Gender Studies and other sponsors)  and the Library shares photos of those events. With this year’s virtual Colloquium, Marsha Miller, Research and Instruction Librarian and member of the Library’s Marketing team, was able to attend all but one of the events and did screen-grabs to represent and record the event for posterity. Those, along with some of the graphic announcements, are shared here. Don’t forget to check out the 4 blog entries on Women and American Health Policy.

Library Dean Goes to Washington

National Library Legislative Day 2016/Honorable representation of Robin Crumrin

On May 3rd, I had the honor of “hitting the Hill” with over 400 library representatives from across the country. It is a personally gratifying and humbling experience to represent Indiana Libraries and be their voice.  The library advocates (from all types of libraries) spoke with legislators and their staff about four key asks:

  • CONFIRM Dr. Carla Hayden as the next Librarian of Congress
  • SUPPORT LSTA and Innovative Approaches to Literacy (IAL) Funding
  • PASS Electronic Communications Privacy Act Reform
  • RATIFY the Marrakesh Treaty for the print-disabled ASAP

If you’re interested in more information you can check out the issues briefs for 2016.
