C&C Presents: “Promoting Inclusion in the Academic Library with a CILLS Program Internship” on 4/20/2022 at 11:30am

April 6, 2022

Registration Link

Allyson Wind, Electronic Resources Librarian at East Stroudsburg University, will discuss how Kemp Library is promoting inclusion by having a CILLS student participate in a library internship. The Career and Independent Living and Learning Studies (CILLS) program helps young adults with intellectual and other developmental disabilities prepare to lead productive lives in their communities. In 2019 and again in 2021, the library has accepted a CILLS student to intern at the library in order to learn soft skills like communication and problem solving that can be transferred to any job placement in the future. In addition to learning soft skills, the CILLS intern learns valuable library related skills like alphabetizing and shelving books according to the Dewey Decimal System.

Allyson Wind is the Electronic Resources Librarian at Kemp Library, East Stroudsburg University.

As a reminder, the Zoom link will be sent approximately 48 hours before the session. We will mute participants on entry into the Zoom room. Session will be recorded and available on YouTube after the session. We will enable Zoom’s Live Transcription feature during the session.

If you would like to present with C&CS, please contact the C&CS team.

This project is made possible by a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services as administered by the Pennsylvania Department of Education through the Office of Commonwealth Libraries, and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, Tom Wolf, Governor.

Support is also provided by the College and Research Division of the Pennsylvania Library Association.
