Applying The Principles Of Epigenetics For a R(Evolution) in School Librarianship

In this talk/workshop I presented to the librarians of Fulton County School District on March 24, 2010, I shared how we can apply the principles of epigenetics to librarianship.  Epigenetics posits that “nature” or external influences can yield significant changes in the cellular material of the epigenome and result in significant change in a short time to the genome.  I examined some of the negative influences that may “silence” our good librarian “genes” and external influences or “lifestyle changes” that can help us “express” and “flip on” our good librarian genes so that we can evolve and adapt even better to the changing landscape/environment to become more effective librarians, and consequently, library programs.

The resource page with links and examples to support this talk and slidedeck are available at this link.
