    What's So Radical About Librarianship? Social Justice in the Information Professions
    ( 2016-11-12) Luke, Koa ; MacKenzie, D. Kealiʻi ; Stoytcheva, Sveta
    The first task of a radical librarian is to ask themselves two questions about their work: “Who benefits?” and “Whose perspectives and voices are being represented?” Asking these questions prompts us to confront the ways in which our work is embedded in systems of oppression and to attempt to remedy these inequities. This panel will explore how information work intersects with social justice in various contexts, including cataloging, information literacy instruction, reference, and archival description. Participants will be encouraged to contribute to the discussion and will be provided with resources for further reading and engagement.

    The Birth of Cool: How Kahuku Public and School Library is Leading the Way For Makerspaces and STEAM Programming in the Hawaii State Public Library System
    ( 2016-11-12) Domingo, Lea ; King, Tamara
    Makerspaces are ubiquitous in libraries throughout the continental U.S. and are popping up in both school and academic libraries in Hawaiʻi. The Kahuku Public and School Library is in the midst of creating a pilot Makerspace for the Hawaii State Public Library System. Hear about our journey into unknown territory as we begin to change the identity of our small, rural library into a thriving, co-laboratory to meet the needs of our community. We'll share how this project began and its process, how we are developing partnerships, avoiding potential pitfalls, and promoting our new resources and services to our patrons.

    Rethinking Discovery: Searching, Exploring & Learning
    ( 2016-11-12) Cook, Brent
    Library Discovery systems are a gateway to knowledge. Users interact with them not only to “search and find” in the traditional sense, but also to explore, discovering content serendipitously and learning more about their chosen topic in the process. Tailored to your local user community, discovery systems shape the user experience and the virtual engagement with them.

    Prying the Doors Open: One Little Library and Its Influence on Life in the Peruvian Amazon
    ( 2016-11-12) Aragaki, Tisha
    Since 1999, a small library has remained a steadfast bastion of education and enrichment for families in the Peruvian Amazon. Over the years it has changed hands, fluctuated in size and services, and endured the challenges of survival in the jungle. Functioning as everything from literacy center to tribal oral history headquarters, it has always focused on providing the people with deeper education and experiences than there has ever been access to. I will share about the trials and realities of this unique center from first-hand experience and contributions of past and current directors and patrons.

    Nā Hawaiʻi ʻImi Loa: Navigating Hawaiian Librarianship
    ( 2016-11-12) Long, Keahiahi ; Matsuda, Shavonn ; Meyer, Keikilani ; Paikai, Annemarie ; Shim, Kapena
    Since traditional times, Hawaiian people have been caretakers and practitioners of information, using systems and protocols that are based in a Hawaiian worldview. Applications of those systems and protocols are seen in mele, moʻokūʻauhau, hoʻokele, mahiʻai, hula, and countless other practices. Today, Nā Hawaiʻi ʻImi Loa, a newly-formed professional organization, is striving to advance such systems and protocols as well as services and research of Hawaiian knowledge in the Library and Information Science profession. Join us as members of the NHIL ʻAha discuss NHIL's history, present state, and future objectives.
