STEM Librarians South started in 2010 as the Texas STEM Librarians Conference. While we have attracted some colleagues from around the country/internationally, we have remained mostly a small, regional, and in-person conference. This 2021 online opportunity allows us to share our work with a wider audience of STEM Library colleagues, and we look forward to learning from and with you!
July 29-30, 2021 from 1-5pm
Hosted by Texas State University Libraries
Prior to commencing the conference, the hosts will present the following code of conduct expectations. While STEM Librarians South is not an organized entity, we (the hosts) expect the community present at our conference to agree to basic forms of respect.
Harassing behavior may relate to: age; appearance or body size; employment or military status; ethnicity; gender identity or expression; individual lifestyles; marital status; national origin; physical or cognitive ability; political affiliation; sexual orientation; race; or religion. .
Harassment can include unwelcome or offensive verbal or written comments or nonverbal expressions, used in person or online, in private or in public. Examples of harassment can include: use of sexual and/or discriminatory images in public spaces (including online); deliberate intimidation; stalking; trolling; harassing photography or recording; sustained disruption of talks or other events; bullying behavior; unwelcome sexual attention; or refusal to use a person's correct pronouns.
The hosts of the meeting are Jessica McClean and Dianna Morganti, and will be present throughout. Alert one or both of them through the Zoom Chat interface to any violations. The hosts will review, confer with each other and other members of the ad hoc STEM Librarians South steering committee if needed, and expel any violators from Zoom.
STEM Librarians South has always been a welcoming and friendly conference to STEM librarians at all levels in their career. With that in mind, and inspired by @tuckeve's discussion on Twitter about facilitating Academic Q&As, we offer this request of all attendees as well.
