Discussion Aug 25 meeting minutes - draft

by Penny Beile on Thu, Aug 25, 2016 at 04:22 pm

All,

Thank you for an excellent meeting, and again, apologies for getting a late start.  Draft minutes are attached.  Two things to note... 1) all action items are in italics, and 2) I added a post meeting note about the Midwinter session (Sunday, from 1-2 pm, location TBD).  Elois looked at everyone's commitments and scheduled around them.  Finally, special thanks to Chase for volunteering to create the survey and pull info for the distribution lists!

Best, Penny

Discussion 2017 ASCLA Program Information for planners/presenters - Sept. 2, 2016 deadline

by Susan Hornung-IL (staff) on Wed, Aug 17, 2016 at 05:58 pm

Hello Everybody,

I hope you each received my message letting you know that your program proposal for ASCLA for 2017 was approved.

Hello Everybody,

I hope you each received my message letting you know that your program proposal for ASCLA for 2017 was approved.

I have set up a group in ALA Connect to communicate with you here: http://connect.ala.org/node/153502. Those of you who are not ALA members will have to set up a free account (by clicking “Join” in the upper right corner) and let me know. I’ll add you to the group once I hear from you. I was able to add the following people already:

Amanda Wilson

Betsy Diamant-Cohen

Lydia Collins

Mary Kearns-Kaplan

Michelle Bickert

Robin Brown

Sharon Grover

Wendy Cornelisen

 IMPORTANT:If there is anyone else you want to add to the group, please send me their name and email.

All of our work will be done in Connect, so please make sure to login and turn on your e-mail notifications for this group, by logging into Connect, clicking on the arrow next to “Your Account” in the upper right corner, clicking on “Edit Your Email Notifications” and following the instructions from there. Using the group helps centralize information—both info that is shared with the team, and info that you provide to staff—so that it doesn’t get lost or misplaced in our inboxes. We’ll be posting all the announcements, deadlines, room assignments, and other information to this group

 

Our first deadline will be September 2nd. We are asking you to finalize the titles and descriptions and any confirmed speakers for your event, so that we can begin promoting the program slate this fall and also so that we can provide information to Conference Services for logistics. We’ve posted a spreadsheet of the titles and descriptions here: http://connect.ala.org/node/256671.  Please respond with a reply/comment in Connect on this post prior to September 2nd confirming the following: Final title, Confirmed description, Any confirmed (at this point) speakers for your event.

 

For your convenience, we’ve attached an FAQ sheet to help you confirm titles and descriptions. We will also be providing other information and documentation regarding deadlines, A/V, speaker waivers and other important logistics. These will be posted in the Connect group soon.

 

I hope you are enjoying these last few weeks of summer, and we’ll be in touch soon regarding this first deadline. Questions? You can post those in response to this post as well and we'll do our best to answer.

 

Thanks, everybody – let me know if you have any questions.

 

Best Wishes,

 

Susan

______________

From Elois Sharpe:

Attendees will need a USB headset (and an Internet connection) to utilize the VoIP feature. We recommend that all attendees have headsets with microphones available, and have a current version of Flash player installed.

If attendees have PowerPoint presentations or PDF documents, please send them to me ahead of time so I can upload them.

If you’d like to record the meeting, all presenters will need to submit a signed agreement. Please contact me for this agreement. As meeting host, you will be responsible for starting and ending the recording during the session.

Here are a few tips we’ve discovered that you can pass onto committee members:

1.            Adobe Connect has recently updated their software. When you log-in, you may notice a screen asking you to install the add-in. If you click “yes,” the update will install in about 20-30 seconds. You may need to complete the audio setup wizard after installing the add-in.

2.            Use Firefox, if possible -- Internet Explorer and Chrome seem to have some issues.

3.            Make certain you have an updated version of Flash.

4.            Only use PDF or PPT files.

5.            You will need a headset for VoIP. If you are using a machine with a built-in microphone, you will need to disable the built-in microphone and enable the microphone on your headset (a USB headset is best).

6.            Once you enter Adobe Connect (you will sign in as a guest -- so no log-in is needed), you will need to click on the speaker and microphone icons to activate -- both need to be GREEN.

7.            Please allow a few minutes to get in and test your audio, etc. before the start time.

8.            To test audio, click on ‘Meeting’ in upper left corner. Choose the audio set-up wizard. Click through every step, making sure the dropdown is set to your USB headset, and click through to the very last screen. IMPORTANT: You must click all the way through the audio wizard in order to save your selections.

Discussion Call for Proposals- Applying Library Values to Emerging Technology: Tips and Techniques for Advancing within Your Mission

by Twanna Hodge on Wed, Aug 24, 2016 at 12:25 pm

We’re excited to invite you to submit chapter proposals for our forthcoming ACRL book, Applying Library Values to Emerging Technology: Tips and Techniques for Advancing within Your Mission

Proposals are due October 10th, 2016.

The Book

We’re excited to invite you to submit chapter proposals for our forthcoming ACRL book, Applying Library Values to Emerging Technology: Tips and Techniques for Advancing within Your Mission

Proposals are due October 10th, 2016.

The Book

As emerging technologies become easier to use, public service information professionals of all kinds are increasingly tasked with making decisions regarding which technologies to use, promote, and provide support for. These technology-mediated exchanges can play an important role in how information, and the library, is perceived and used.

 

This book will share perspectives on how to interpret and apply the ALA's Core Values of Librarianship in the context of emerging technologies as well highlight case studies of organizations and applications that exemplify relevant library values. It will be grounded in theory, but be made applicable to a variety of libraries by situating discussions within a framework for decision-making.

 

Authors will retain copyright of their work, and after one year the entire book will be made available open access.

 

Structure

The book will be organized into chapters corresponding with the values identified in the ALA's Core Values of Librarianship, but individual chapters do not need to tie directly to any particular interpretation of those values (see “Chapter Details”). Authors should consider library values in the context of emerging technology, and what the implications are for making decisions about library practice. 

The editors are interested in considering a wide variety of perspectives and forms of submissions in order to be relevant to a broad audience

 

Each section will include both:

•    Practical case studies of how to effectively use a particular technology in a library setting

•    Theoretical models for understanding and interpreting the relevant library value (or values) in context of a relevant technology

Most submissions should include at least some elements of theory and practice, but can focus on any aspect. We will also consider submissions featuring just one element (an important theoretical consideration that could impact other works, or a particularly impactful case study). 


 

Copyright

Priority will be given to producing the best possible final work that is meaningful to a wide audience rather than necessarily “original research,” so authors may reuse portions of previous works when copyright allows. If doing so, authors are expected to revise their work and provide at minimum an introduction and conclusion that fit with the theme of this volume. 

Chapter Details
For a more context and suggested topics for each chapter visit this document: https://goo.gl/slsCNV 



 

Potential Sections Include:

 

·         Confidentiality/Privacy & Intellectual Freedom

·         Access/Democracy

·         The Public Good/Social Responsibility & Education and Lifelong Learning

·         Preservation

·         Diversity

·         Service

·         Professionalism

 

Examples of topics include:

•    Libraries providing access to encryption technology

•    Libraries providing training/access to technology that enables expression

•    Libraries relationship to modern efforts to censor (e.g. NSA; Patriot Act; China’s firewall)

•    Technology that supports Open Access

•    The #ICANHAZPDF phenomenon, and technology surrounding interlibrary loan

•    Licensing/copyright agreements and library values

•    Preventing link-rot and related issues with archiving websites

•    Issues surrounding private/public communications online (e.g. preserving e-mails, Facebook posts and other semi-public digital objects stored on private servers)

•    How library interfaces impact diversity

•    How library values such as professionalism and service can be embodied in technology decisions

 

Don’t see your topic/idea here? We encourage you to contact the editors atvaluesandtechnologyacrl@gmail.com to discuss how your idea may fit within this book’s scope.

 

Proposal Guidelines and Submission Instructions
A short form with an attached Word document (.doc or .docx) is required for proposal submission. The Word document should be written in Times New Roman, 12 pt., be double-spaced, and include:

•    A working title

•    Names of all contributing authors & their respective institutions

•    Contact information for the primary author

•    Estimated final word count

•    A brief (250-500 word) description of your proposed chapter

•    Please identify any relevant library values and technologies, and if your chapter will include any explicit recommendations for decision making

Attach your chapter submission proposal to an email with the subject line: Chapter Proposal Submission_(PrimaryAuthor’sLastName)
And send to:valuesandtechnologyacrl@gmail.com
