Event All the Data: Privacy, Service Quality, and Analytics

by ALAConnect Helpdesk (staff) on Thu, Jun 18, 2015 at 07:15 pm

ACRL’s The Value of Academic Libraries report emphasized the need for libraries to systematically collect user data in planning and decisionmaking activities. Indeed, many libraries are seeking ways to use such data as part of institutional efforts to better understand and measure library impact and educational outcomes. These efforts have raised many questions about user privacy, anonymity, policy, library values, and service development. This program will prepare librarians to actively engage with these issues.

Event "But We're Neutral!" And Other Librarian Fictions Confronted by #critlib

by ALAConnect Helpdesk (staff) on Mon, Jun 8, 2015 at 11:31 am

Twitter chats are an opportunity for synchronous bursts of conversation on current topics. We started the #critlib chat to build a conversation about issues of critical pedagogy in academic libraries, but topics have grown to include library assessment, gender in RDA, and library responses to social justice actions in our communities. Publicly exploring our assumptions about our profession is sometimes uncomfortable, sometimes fiery, and always an opportunity for growth and action.

This panel presentation and discussion will examine how we talk--and don't talk--about critical issues surrounding the profession and our identity within it.

Today, more than 90% of Americans watch over 40 billion online videos each month. This session explores some big questions: Why, despite this statistic, do we still see such limited use of and innovation in online video on campuses?

Event Academic Integrity: An Opportunity for Faculty Development

by ALAConnect Helpdesk (staff) on Mon, Jun 8, 2015 at 11:31 am

At UC Berkeley the Library is part of a campus-wide task force that is beginning to use faculty concern about plagiarism and cheating as a faculty development opportunity. Flipping the script to a focus on how to support faculty and students in understanding and practicing Academic Integrity, rather than focusing on punishment, also opens the door to improved teaching and learning. Attendees will brainstorm about how librarians can be an important part of this process.
