2015 Summer HELP Institute Application Now Available Scholarship Application. Deadline approaching for scholarship Feb.15th, 2015

My colleague, Sharon Lenius, forwarded this opportunity with the following good note: “There is a large contingent of libraries working in this emergency and medical arena. It would be a good grounding in that area of practice as well as helping a student decide if the topic/service was of interest to them.”

My notes:
1) The final Bloomberg School of Public Health registration deadline is noon EST on June 20, 2015.
2) The deadline for submitting a scholarship application is February 15th, 2015. Applicants will be notified of their status in March.

Syracuse iSchool Announces New Librarianship MOOC

The School of Information Studies (iSchool) at Syracuse University has opened registration for its second massive open online course (MOOC), the New Librarianship Master Class http://ischool.syr.edu/future/grad/newlibopencourse.aspx .

“The vision for a new librarianship must go beyond finding library-related uses for information technology and the Internet,” explains Professor R. David Lankes, course architect and instructor. “ It must provide a durable foundation for the field.”

The MOOC will examine librarianship and library practice using the fundamental concept that knowledge is created through conversation. “New librarians approach their work as facilitators of conversation,” says Lankes. “Through this course, they will learn how to better capture, store, and disseminate the conversations of their communities.”

"Ike and Dutch: Mentor, Protégé, and Common Sense by Dr. Gene Kopelson" presentation at the U.S. Army Heritage and Education Center

https://youtu.be/9jZSI6bF7d0

Published on Feb 24, 2017

As Ronald Reagan traveled across the United States campaigning for the highest office in the land, the Governor of California possessed an ace in his hand unmatched by his opponents: the ear and advice of former president Dwight D. Eisenhower. Reagan was in constant contact with Ike, following his advice at every turn and going so far as to base his entire 1966 campaign on his mentor’s own successful run years before. Eisenhower’s astute view of internal Washington politics, foreign affairs, military matters, and the swirling pool of primary rivals, provided his protégé the fuel he needed to learn, and eventually win, the war of words. In his latest book, Reagan’s 1968 Dress Rehearsal: Ike, RFK, and Reagan’s Emergence as a World Statesman, Dr. Gene Kopelson outlines the story of Reagan’s first presidential bid with an in-depth look behind the scenes. On Wednesday, February 15, 2017 at the U.S. Army Heritage and Education Center in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, Dr. Kopelson gave a lecture titled, “Ike and Dutch: Mentor, Protégé, and Common Sense,” to delve deeper into the relationship between Reagan and his mentor and how it not only shaped Reagan’s future campaigns, but his presidency, as well.

In his lecture at the USAHEC, Dr. Kopelson uses never-before-tapped audio clips, interviews with the original 1968 campaign staff, Eisenhower’s personal diary, and material straight from personal correspondence to show how Eisenhower influenced Reagan’s politics and eventually, his far-reaching presidential policies. From Reagan’s hawkish views on Vietnam to his perspective on the Arab-Israeli situation, his groundbreaking steps with Gorbachev and the Soviets to nuclear defense, Eisenhower and Reagan had a close and personal relationship which changed America’s future.

Lecture Date: February 15, 2017
