January 12th Trans: Gender Identity Inclusion Workshop

The Trans: Gender Identity Inclusion Workshop for the Library, co-sponsored by LAUC-B Committee on Diversity and Staff Development Committee, was held on Jan. 12, 2017. This engaging, thought-provoking workshop covered foundational concepts and critical information about gender identity and trans-related issues and was led by Marisa (Mac) Boyce from the Gender Equity Resource Center. Nearly 40 people attended.

TODAY at 3pm - Free lecture at BAMPFA

BAMPFA in downtown Berkeley will be hosting a talk by Peter Koch, founder of the Codex Foundation, on the artistry of the book. He'll also share information about the upcoming Codex International Book Fair & Symposium, this February 5-8, happening at the Craneway Pavilion just a few miles north in Richmond, CA. The book fair is open to the public and tickets are $10 for a single day or $30 for admittance all week. Student tickets (with ID proof) are only $5. Tickets can be purchased at the door.

Library School Student Support Group Lunch


Dear staff members currently enrolled in library school,

The Staff Development Committee invites you to join your fellow hardworking colleagues for lunch at La Vals, Wednesday October 28th at 11:45am. Come have pizza, share your experiences and compare notes on classes.

La Vals (on the north side of campus)
1834 Euclid Ave
Berkeley, CA 94709-1318

The purpose of the group is to create a supportive network of library school students working for the UCB Library. Of special interest are those students in the SJSU MLIS program who do all of their course work online and have little opportunity to connect with their peers. The first lunch was fun and we'd like to continue to meet once a month.
