Defining Distance in the Academic Library

Date and time: Thursday, February 12, 2015 12:00 pm Eastern

Duration: 1 hour

Distance Librarians work on the front lines of one of the biggest changes taking place in higher education—online learning.  As educational institutions develop models for online delivery of courses and curriculum that best serve their students, their libraries must also respond with the appropriate services and support for these students.  The result is many different models for how distance librarians work, where they work, and what additional challenges and obstacles they face. 

Panelists include Neely Tang, Off-Site Public Services Librarian, Johnson Graduate School of Management, Cornell University; Stefanie Buck, Assistant Professor, Oregon State University Libraries in the Teaching and Engagement Department; Luann Edwards, E-Librarian, Tiffin University; Seth Allen, Online Instruction Librarian, King University; and Priscilla Coulter, Senior Online Librarian, American Public University System.

  These librarians bring experience and insights into blended distance librarianship, working outside the library’s traditional organizational structure, and whether librarianship is increasingly serving all its students “at a distance”.  Join us for a conversation with these librarians, to learn more about their experiences as they meet the needs of distance learners.

Discussion NMRT Mentoring Committee Seeking More Mentors

by Cheryl Blevens on Thu, Oct 30, 2014 at 03:57 pm

Kindly forgive the cross posting!

 

Do you find yourself wishing that someone would have been there to teach you all that you now know? Would you like to walk alongside a new librarian as they enter the profession?

Kindly forgive the cross posting!

 

Do you find yourself wishing that someone would have been there to teach you all that you now know? Would you like to walk alongside a new librarian as they enter the profession?

Here is your chance to participate in a great new project from the New Members Round Table of ALA (NMRT), to meet a new librarian ally, and to have someone to guide as they learn the ins and outs of librarianship. The NMRT Mentoring Committee's Career Mentoring Program focuses on long term mentoring. We will pair up "newbie librarians" with "seasoned vets" as part of a year-long mentoring program.

The NMRT Career Mentoring program will last from October 2014 to July 2015. Conference attendance is not required, but membership in ALA is required, and NMRT membership is encouraged.

For further information and to apply, please visit
http://www.ala.org/nmrt/oversightgroups/comm/mentor/mentoringcommittee

Please feel free to contact us if you have any further questions after visiting the site.

Sincerely,

The New Member Round Table Mentoring Committee
