Description:

The WNYLRC Preservation Committee is pleased to host Jeremy Linden for this informative workshop.

Understanding preservation risks to cultural heritage collections – including library and archival materials as well as museum objects – requires the ability to track and understand the preservation environment they are stored and used within.  This workshop will introduce participants to basic practices for environmental monitoring and analysis for the assessment of four primary environmental risks to collections:

  •        Natural decay, which causes the acid degradation and embrittlement of wood-pulp papers;
  •        Mechanical damage, or the physical expansion and contraction of objects based on their moisture content,
  •        Biological damage and mold risk, including the influence of relative humidity on pest issues and mold growth,
  •        Metal corrosion of materials including silver, bronze, and more, as well as its influence on photograph and manuscript collections.

The group will discuss the relative merits and limitations of different types of dataloggers, and the instructor will have a number of common brands on-hand for participants to examine and compare.  Software packages, ranging from provided manufacturer tools to other services, will also be discussed.  The session will end with an overview of funding opportunities from various state, federal, and professional programs that can help provide needs assessments, funding for equipment and monitoring supplies, and consulting services, among other things.

Description:

Everything you wanted to know about the Census, but were afraid to ask!

As Census 2020 approaches, you may find yourself facing questions from patrons who will want to know why the Census matters and how they can fill it out. In fact, you may be asking yourself what can libraries do to prepare for the Census, and why should they?

The Census is an essential component of library advocacy. The statistics gathered by counting residents are used to determine not only the state of the nation but also reapportioning congressional seats, redistricting, and the distribution of federal funds. All of this impacts the support your communities receive from the government. 

Census experts will discuss the vital importance of Census 2020. You will learn why you should assist your patrons with the Census and you will be prepared to answer questions from your patrons about the Census. You will also learn how to market the Census in your library as well how to use the Census to arm yourself with demographic information and statistics for your community leaders.

Featuring:

Amy Brombos, Supervisory Partnership Specialist, New York Regional Census Center, Field Division, U.S. Census Bureau

David Kraiker, Data Dissemination & GIS Specialist, Customer Liaison & Marketing Services Office, Data Dissemination and Training Branch, U.S. Census Bureau
