Switching Library Settings: A CALL Continuing Education and Mentorship Collaboration

The Mentorship and Continuing Education Committees are collaborating their efforts for a panel discussion on switching jobs. Recently, a number of CALL members have switched positions, where they have also switched library settings – for example, academic librarians have switched positions and moved to government libraries, firm libraries, and so on. 

Join us for a lively discussion and brownbag lunch, where our panelists will describe their experiences, discuss how they transitioned their skillset, and give advice to other librarians considering making a change.

Where: Jenner & Block (353 N. Clark Street)

When: January 25, 2017 from Noon-1

November Community Service Collection

In observance of Veteran’s Day, we will be supporting these organizations at tomorrow’s business meeting.

In Kind Donations

Help Hospitalized Veterans

 Help Hospitalized Veterans’ primary mission is to enrich the lives of veterans and military personnel. Healing arts and crafts provide a therapeutic experience for all veterans including those who are hospitalized, in shelters, in convalescent homes and those undergoing therapy for a wide range of physical and mental challenges. Many veterans experience symptoms of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and/or Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) which increase the risk for depression, physical injuries, substance abuse and sleep problems. The kits, provided free of charge to the veteran, become a part of the patient’s treatment plan, giving them a creative outlet along with tangible therapeutic and rehabilitation benefits. They improve fine motor skills, cognitive functioning, memory improvement, anger issues and dexterity as well as decrease the severity of PTSD/TBI triggers including anxiety, memories, sadness and frustration.

The materials they are most in need of include:

Acrylic paints for wood craft projects (non-toxic)

Fine tip paint brushes

Medium paint brushes

Wood Glue (Elmer’s non-toxic)

Sketch Pads (any size)

Cash Donations

Cash donations will be sent to the Wounded Warriors Project

 Wounded Warrior Project provides free programs and services focused on the physical, mental, and long-term financial well-being of this generation of injured veterans, their families and caregivers. The long-term strategic goal of Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) is to foster the most successful, well-adjusted generation of wounded service members in our nation’s history. We will accomplish this vision by raising awareness and enlisting the public’s aid for the needs of injured service members; helping injured servicemen and women aid and assist each other; and providing unique, direct programs and services to meet their needs.  Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) positively impacts the lives of injured service members through a high-touch, holistic approach, reaching out to warriors at a personal level by engaging them at numerous points throughout their recovery continuum. By emphasizing our core programs – focused on Outreach and Engagement, Mental Health Support, Physical Health & Wellness, and Financial Assistance, Employment, and Education – WWP works to confront the spectrum of barriers to successful reintegration that many veterans face. As one of the fastest-growing national charities, WWP provides the largest scope of programs and services to veterans at every phase and stage of their recovery and transition.
