Audiovisual Accessibility: Evaluating Workflows for Closed Captioning and Transcripts

Jeremy Myntti, MLIS – Head of Digital Library Services, University of Utah, J. Willard Marriott Library

Molly Steed – Moving Image & Sound Archivist, University of Utah, Marriott Library


This project is currently in progress, with the grant period ending in June 2019 and should be completed by the time of ALA Annual. The proposed poster will outline the timeline, methods, workflows, and technologies being examined as part of the project, note the specific media being transcribed, and include relevant experiences and data gathered throughout the project. Ultimately, the project team will produce a publicly available report detailing costs, time required, and other considerations for each workflow and technology examined, which other organizations hoping to improve the accessibly of their audio and audiovisual materials can use to help determine which method is most suitable for their budget, staff, and needs. This poster will include information from that report.

Beyond Information: Showing Wider Roles Public Libraries Can Play in the Fight Against HIV/AIDS in Africa

Jane Meyers, MLS – Founder and President, Lubuto Library Partners

Elizabeth Giles, MLIS – Director of Library Services, Lubuto Library Partners

Jane Meyers, MLS – Founder and President, Lubuto Library Partners


Lubuto was one of 800 applicants worldwide for a PEPFAR DREAMS grant, to which only 56 organizations were awarded, and the only library organization to ever play an active role in PEPFAR programs. When the award was granted, it was singled out on the DREAMS Innovation Challenge website thus: "Public libraries are a unique gateway for linking girls at risk of HIV infection to information and services that empower them to develop life skills, prevent HIV, and stay in school. One Challenge winner in Zambia will establish new mentoring programs in public libraries to tackle discriminatory gender norms, provide health education, and foster girls’ resilience and determination to succeed.” In the end our unique successes were recognized even from among the 56 grantees, and the special role the library can play in fighting HIV infections among adolescents was recognized at the Woodrow Wilson International Center in November 2018. We feel this is a powerful example to share with our colleagues.

Bilingual Language Acquisition in Early Literacy

Alessandra Affinito, MLIS – Children's Librarian, New York Public Library, Chatham Square Branch


Over the past four years I have worked as a Children's Librarian at the Chatham Square Branch of the New York Public Library in Manhattan's Chinatown. During the past three years, we have participated in the NYPL-wide Early Literacy Initiative (https://www. nypl. org/education/parents/early-literacy) , serving as one of five pilot branches for the first year. This entails extensive partnerships with surrounding schools as well as a focus on providing resources for parents through monthly Family Literacy Workshops. My most popular workshop, and the one I would like to share at this year's conference, is focused on Bilingual Language Acquisition in Children, and how to encourage Early Literacy skills in a bilingual environment. Additionally, as I advanced through my Master's program in LIS at University of Illinois Urbana Champaign (LEEP) from 2016-2018, I had the opportunity to edit, expand, and discuss my findings with LIS professors. The result is a fine-tuned poster that is designed to be presented to other LIS professionals or Early Literacy Educators. Thank you for your consideration.
