    Jacob Tobia Author Talk and Q&A

    Due to unforeseen circumstances, we are rescheduling Jacob Tobia’s author talk for later in the month. We will announce the new date shortly, but we are currently looking at the range of April 20th-23rd, so please keep your calendars marked! Looking forward to seeing you there!

    Please join Randall Library, the Mohin-Scholz LGBTQIA Resource Office, and the UNCW Gender Studies Resource Center for a conversation with Jacob Tobia (they/them), actor, writer, producer, and author of the national bestselling memoir Sissy: A Coming-of-Gender Story.

    From running across the Brooklyn Bridge in high heels to giving Trevor Noah an on-air makeover on The Daily Show, Jacob helps others embrace the full complexity of their gender, even (and especially) when it’s messy as hell. In addition to adapting their book Sissy into a forthcoming TV series for Showtime, Jacob recently made their acting debut as the nonbinary character “Double Trouble” on Netflix’s She-Ra and The Princesses of Power. Originally from Raleigh, North Carolina, Jacob currently lives in Los Angeles.

    For their full bio, please see: https://jacobtobia.com/Bio

    Jacob will be sharing a passage from their memoir, talking gender identity and celebration, and answering audience questions.

    Transgender Day of Visibility Read-In on March 31st at 1pm

    International Day of Trans Visibility, falling on March 31st, is an annual event celebrating and highlighting the lives and experiences of trans, nonbinary, and gender nonconforming people throughout the world.

    This March 31st at 1:00 PM, Randall Library, the LGBTQIA+ Office, and the Gender Studies Research Center are hosting a read-in, where trans, nonbinary, and gender nonconforming folks can read passages from works that have been meaningful to them, including from their own writing. As the day's focus is on prioritizing and highlighting the voices of trans people, we invite cisgender allies to attend and listen.

    We'll reach out to you closer to the event with a confirmation, to get you a specific time slot for reading during the event, and to answer any questions--but please don't hesitate to reach out to Eva Sclippa at sclippae [at] uncw.edu with event questions in the meantime!

    Win Big, Help the Library logo

    You could win one of two $25 gift certificates to Target by helping the library!

    We are launching a usability study of Randall Library’s online catalog (IRB 21-0235). Through this study, we hope to find out how usable the catalog is in searching for and retrieving resources such as books, journals, videos and more. By participating in this study, you will be entered into a raffle to win one of two $25 gift certificates to Target! Sign up here!

    What is a usability study? A usability study is a series of tasks performed by real people as they use a product or software, such as the library catalog. We observe as you complete the various tasks and we learn how useful and usable the product is by your actions. The test should take about an hour and will be done over Zoom.

    We aren’t testing you; we’re asking you to help us test the catalog. There are no wrong answers and all feedback is welcome. You could be a catalog power user, or a total beginner. We’re looking for a variety of experiences. All you need is an internet-connected laptop with a web camera and microphone!

    Interested? Please sign up at https://library.uncw.edu/forms/library_catalog_usability_study_sign
