    Advocating for Hawaiʻi Children’s Books Somewhere Over the Rainbow
    ( 2021-12-03) Tarnas, Kristin ; Arzate, Sarah ; Charron, Alita ; Kelly, Sheri ; Nakamura, Taryn ; Nielsen, Lauren ; Robertson, Stephanie
    Our poster will address the need for our communities to serve the children of Hawaiʻi by advocating for books created for and about Hawaiʻi’s children, encouraging a vigorous local literary community, which honors the value of literacy and story in Hawaiian culture. We will share our goal to bring attention to local book creators, publishers, and children’s librarians through our Ānuenue Hawaiʻi Children’s Book award hui. We believe that intentionally sharing and highlighting stories that Hawaiʻi’s children can relate to will provide a sense of belonging through literature, and also inspire children to value, and share their own important stories throughout their lives.

    Not Just a Study Hall: Engaging Student Workers in the Academic Library
    ( 2021-12-03) Kerns, Halie
    This poster will explore the role of academic library student workers in a changing landscape, ideas for engaging them in the library ecosystem, and examples of how in turn, they can be ambassadors for the library among their peers. Without student workers, many functions of the academic library would cease to exist. While most work-study jobs involve basic tasks, including student workers when it comes to organizing activities and selecting resources for student use, is a great way to incorporate a diverse perspective in the fabric of library decision making. When students love working in the library, they promote library services through word of mouth, bringing their peers to the library. Drawing on experience in libraries in Illinois, Hawaiʻi, and New York, examples of trainings, engagement activities, and student success stories will be highlighted.

    Reimagining Library Spaces and Learning Frameworks at The JFS Library at BYU–Hawaii
    ( 2021-12-03) Robertson, Stephanie ; Falevai, Zoia
    Ever-evolving trends in higher education call for a reimagining of library spaces and learning frameworks in order to better address each unique campus community and their needs. The Joseph F. Smith Library at BYU–Hawaii has answered this call by linking arms with our campus learning and teaching center and their framework which invites teachers and learners to prepare, engage, develop, and improve as lifelong learners. Teaching and modeling information literacy best practices is a cornerstone of this reimagining. Information literacy is not an isolated skill as it correlates, comports with, and builds upon other competencies and learning abilities such as critical thinking, problem-solving, metacognition, critical information evaluation, and active learning.

    Project Hoʻopoeko: Normalizing Hawaiian Language at the Workplaces
    ( 2021-12-03) Reyes, Kuuleilani
    How did Native Hawaiian educators create and teach an engaging Hawaiian language program at work sites? How did we meet the cultural and digital needs of adult learners during COVID? How did we implement and complete an ANA grant project that we didn’t write? How did we manage our various perspectives, experiences and personalities to create meaningful Hawaiian language opportunities through: collaboration with other community organizations; utilization of archival and contemporary resources; and, adaptation in person to online learning opportunities. Our poster will also share lessons from developing language lessons, support system tools, such as Pixton, Quizlet and Kahoot!, to ultimately creating a new language digital instructional manual in addition to teaching online.

    E Ola Ka ʻIke Hawaiʻi (Long Live Hawaiian Knowledge)
    ( 2021-12-03) Reyes, Kuuleilani ; Meyer, Keikilani ; Naipo, Stacy
    In 2020, the World Indigenous Nations University-Hawai‘i Pasifika (WINUHP) launched the E Ola Ka ʻIke Hawaiʻi (Long Live Hawaiian Knowledge) project. The purpose of the project is to increase access to and engagement with culturally-relevant Native Hawaiian digital resources via information literacy skills development for Native Hawaiians, educators and librarians. E Ola Ka ʻIke Hawaiʻi project leaders have developed an entirely online, dynamic curriculum to offer a certificate program, which was piloted in 2021. The poster will depict the implementation of E Ola Ka ʻIke Hawaiʻi in terms of its significant impact on augmenting Leo Hawaiʻi (Hawaiian Voice) and the advancement of Hana Hawaiʻi (Hawaiian Work) all while working online during the pandemic. We will share lessons we learned and discuss the future direction of this wonderful project.
