Upcoming webinars from NNLM: data, LGBTQ+ health, nutrition, predatory publishing and more

Looking for some summer webinars? Here are a few upcoming sessions from NNLM. 

1. What’s in a Data Story? Understanding the Basics of Data Storytelling. [ https://nnlm.gov/class/what-s-data-story-understanding-basics-data-story... ]
“What’s in a Data Story? Understanding the Basics of Data Storytelling” is a one-hour introductory webinar on the fundamentals of effective storytelling using data collected and visualized by librarians for librarians. Data without a story is just a pile of numbers. Data with an effective story becomes an everlasting narrative that people will remember for a long time and without much effort. In this webinar, we’ll look at the basic structure of data storytelling and review exemplars both good and bad of data storytelling. No prior knowledge of the topic is required.

2. Caring for LGBTQ+ Youth. [ https://nnlm.gov/class/caring-lgbtq-youth/11613 ]
Join us for a Pride Month Kernel of Knowledge session presented by Katherine
L Imborek, MD, entitled Caring for LGBTQ+ Youth. This presentation will
detail foundational terms and definitions imperative for respectful
interactions with lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and questioning
(LGBTQ+) persons. There will be a specific focus on health care needs
specific to LGBTQ youth.

3. Navigating the publishing landscape: Nuances of open access and “predatory” publishing . [ https://nnlm.gov/class/navigating-publishing-landscape-nuances-open-acce... ] *Description:* This session will demystify the changing landscape of
scholarly publishing, in particular, the rise of open access and
“predatory” publishing. Predatory publishing is a term often used to
describe journal publishers who engage in unethical or deceptive practices in
order to make a profit. Alongside obvious publishing scams, emerging
practices of established publishers, such as cascading and mirror journals,
are also generating confusion and questions from both librarians and authors.

4. Resources for Community Health Workers. [ https://nnlm.gov/class/CHWBoostBox ] Community Health Workers (CHWs) play an important role in connecting their
communities with healthcare and services. This session will provide
information about how Community Health Workers can link their community with
quality health information using resources from the National Library of
Medicine. In addition to appropriate information tools for CHWs, the audience
will learn about projects that have put NLM resources to use in CHW training
and community education.

5. Food for Thought: Exploring Nutrition Information Resources. [ https://nnlm.gov/class/food-thought-exploring-nutrition-information-reso... ] Join us for a self-paced course on nutrition information resources available
through reliable resources such as the US Department of Agriculture (USDA),
US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention (CDC), and the National Library of Medicine (NLM).
