All Books Are Not Create Equal

by Alee Navarro (staff) on Mon, Mar 10, 2014 at 09:32 am

Description: While considering changes in both publishing and library science, specifically in terms of new technology, librarians of Recycled Reads, Austin Public Library's bookstore, propose attention must be paid to the entire lifecycle of books and media. The presenter will demonstrate that all books are not created equal. For example, information that changes often such as medical and technology guides should be published digitally first.

Description: While considering changes in both publishing and library science, specifically in terms of new technology, librarians of Recycled Reads, Austin Public Library's bookstore, propose attention must be paid to the entire lifecycle of books and media. The presenter will demonstrate that all books are not created equal. For example, information that changes often such as medical and technology guides should be published digitally first. Librarians must take responsibility for ensuring materials discarded from circulation are properly recycled and, as harbingers of social change, librarians can encourage environmentally-conscious shifts in content delivery for library users.

Stand Up and Shout

by Alee Navarro (staff) on Tue, Mar 4, 2014 at 02:37 pm

Description: The presenters will showcase what is needed to thrive as a young leader taking the helm of a field that is changing direction. We pose an “embrace it” approach to programmatically shifting the work from “divide” to “all-in”. We discuss our views of growing up in tough economic times (always behind the 8 ball) in shaping our expectations for working with little, and how to turn a little into a lot.

Description: Wake Tech Community College has been using an online tool called Padlet as collaboration and assessment tool for information literacy.

Using this simple online tool, embedded in our Libguides, faculty and librarians can assess student research knowledge and article selection. Students find an article and post on the course’s Padlet. Librarians and faculty can then use the tool to assess how students understand the concepts taught. Faculty can create group exercises where students results can be used to create final reports. Our faculty love Padlet and you will too.
