Warning message

The launch of the new ALA Connect, scheduled for April 25, 2018, has been delayed due to technical issues. During final testing some critical issues related to navigation, tagging, and the structure of parent-child relationships were discovered.

The vendor is working to resolve these issues. We apologize for the delay and thank you for your patience.

While we're waiting to get started, please check out the resources and training on the support site. We'll keep you updated, in particular, we will communicate when we have a firm launch date.

If you have questions, please feel free to contact Pam Akins, Community Engagement Specialist, at alaconnectmigration@ala.org.

********************

ACRL provides the following recommendations to ensure successful access to the virtual meeting:

  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. 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).
  5. Please allow a few minutes to get in and test your audio, etc. before the start time.
  6. 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.

Event The Current Status of Academic Librarians: The Best of Times or the Worst of Times?

by ALAConnect Helpdesk (staff) on Sat, Jun 9, 2012 at 01:07 am

Timezone:
US/Pacific (-7)

Given the current fiscal environment, how do we, as academic librarians, maintain or improve our status in order to position ourselves for the future? Is this really the "best of times" where we can redefine our profession and seize the opportunity to reevaluate and retool our responsibilities and workflow or is it the "worst of times" where we experience continued economic uncertainty, the effects of workload creep, and a barrage of new initiatives facing us?

Event Reference Resurrected: Models for the 21st-Century College Library

by ALAConnect Helpdesk (staff) on Sat, Jun 9, 2012 at 01:07 am

Timezone:
US/Pacific (-7)

The shift from traditional reference desk activity has become an accepted reality in most academic libraries. Librarians now offer a variety of reference services including live chat, “roving” reference in the library, embedded or personal librarian service for classes, and research services in residence halls, gyms, and campus centers. This program will focus on the challenges that college libraries face in deciding how to provide and assess reference services that best meet local needs without straining resources.
