Call for 2019 Presenters & Features

SWON wants to know what exciting things are happening at your library! We are looking for individuals (or groups) who would like to share their innovative ideas through Level-Up Labs, webinars, and/or feature stories in our newsletter throughout 2019. 

Have you had an incredibly successful or creative program this year? Maybe you've had a physical or digital transformation in your library that you'd like to show off. No matter the age group or type of library, we want to help you share your expertise, successes, and resources with other librarians and library staff in our region. Email us at with your ideas!

Academic Librarians Interest Group (ALIG)

The Academic Librarians Interest Group is an informal discussion group that discusses the challenges, ideas, and strategies of academic libraries. This includes but is not limited  to instruction, information literacy, marketing, technology, trends, and more.  During the designated times please feel free to drop by or leave as needed.  Our discussions are usually lively as we share the various issues, trends, and library work life.  If you’re a part of an academic library please feel free to join us and share any experiences, questions, or innovations at your library!

PCI Webinar - Mission Not-Impossible! Genealogical Research for Native Americans

Are you curious about your Native American ancestry?  Have you done a DNA test and want to know more about your roots? Do you work in a field where you get genealogical questions and want to be able to better assist your customers? Do you just enjoy historical research? 

For many indigenous people living in the United States, their family history is something they want to learn more about.  However, many individuals find it is difficult to know exactly where to begin to trace Native American genealogy.  Many people mistakenly believe it is impossible to trace Native American ancestry. Fortunately, there are many available resources that can help you do just that.   

At the conclusion of the webinar, participants will be able to:

• Know how to locate and use Native American census records
• Know how to locate and use tribal histories and records
• Understand the difference between state and federal recognition
• Know how to locate and use the Dawes Rolls and the Guion-Miller Roll

June Power is the Access Services/Reference Librarian for The University of North Carolina at Pembroke, managing circulation, course reserves, document delivery services, and copyright management. She is the managing department head and has also assisted with archival and special collections work, and genealogy.  She has taught American Library Association e-courses on genealogical research and is working on her certification through the Board of Genealogical Certification. She has presented at NCLA, the ILLiad Conference, the Ares Virtual Conference, the Azaela Coast Library Association Conference, and the Access Services Conference.  She is on the editorial board for the Journal of Access Services and has published a series of articles in that journal as well as several book chapters. June works at the only university established as a state-sponsored school for Native Americans in the United States. She lives in Robeson County, NC, which is still the home of the Lumbee Tribe, with her husband, daughter, and a tribe of cats.
