Registration is now open for SENY-Con 2016!

We have a remarkable lineup set for SENY-Con 2016!

On Friday, April 15, we are hosting a brand-new conference to highlight the unique talents and skills of SENYLRC members. This event is made possible due to an outpouring of enthusiasm from our members, who have volunteered to share their skills and works in progress. They have helped us put together a full day of educational programming and networking. We hope you can join us!

Two NN/LM Classes are held at SENYLRC

On Tuesday, December 1, Lydia Collins, Consumer Heath Coordinator at National Network of Libraries of Medicine, Middle Atlantic Region, taught two classes at SENYLRC - An Apple a Day and Caring for the Mind. Both classes focused on teaching librarians best practices for providing health information to their patrons. 

Incorporating Active Learning Into Your Teaching Workshop

On Wednesday, August 19, 2015, members gathered at the SENYLRC office to hone their library instruction skills. The class was led by Brian Morgan, Assistant Professor at the Ella Cline Shear School of Education - SUNY Geneseo. This one-shot class focused on pedagogical theories that help take instructors beyond the dreaded lecture format.

Building Communities of Practice

On Friday, June 19, participants met at SENLYRC to learn about how to establish community by running better meetings. (A meeting being any event where a group of people come together to talk about a topic.) Although "meeting" can sometimes seem like a dirty word, a necessary evil that exists in modern life, at this event, participants learned about techniques to make them more engaging.
