Project READY: Reimagining Equity & Access for Diverse Youth. Year Developed: 2019. Source: The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill's School of Information and Library Science. Presenter(s): n.a.. Type: Professional Development Curriculum. Level: Intermediate. Length: Self-paced.

The Project READY curriculum addresses this gap in existing professional development opportunities for youth services library staff.

Learning Objectives: • Introduce youth services library staff to research in areas such as race and racism, critical theory, and culturally responsive or sustaining pedagogy. • Establish a shared understanding of foundational concepts and issues related to race, racism, and racial equity. • Encourage self-reflection related to race and racial identity for both white and BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) library staff in public and school libraries. • Amplify the work of practitioners and scholars who are providing inclusive and culturally responsive services for youth of color and Indigenous youth. • Provide concrete strategies for creating and/or improving library programs and services for Black youth, Indigenous youth, and children and teens of color.

The Constitutional and Legal Basis for Public Health Actions. Year Developed: 2011. Source: University of Minnesota School of Public Health. Presenter(s): Anne Barry, MPH. Type: Online Course. Level: Intermediate. Length: Self-paced.

Annotation: A basic understanding of public health law is essential to the practice of public health across our nation.

However to exercise these powers, we must understand them and use them within the boundaries of the constitution and legal authority. This course will provide some very basic tools to develop a greater appreciation and understanding of the authority we have to protect the public health while maintaining the appropriate respect for individual rights that must be balanced in any of our actions.

Learning Objectives: • Have a basic understanding of the constitutional and regulatory powers in public health and how these powers are applied in public health situations and activities. • Be able to critically analyze various public health situations and activities by balancing the rights of individuals with the legal powers and duties to assure optimum population health.
