Discussion Be Involved in Your Association - Volunteer Now

by Mary Beth Thomson on Mon, Oct 31, 2016 at 10:34 am

Dear ALCTS Members,

Now is the time to volunteer for an ALCTS committee! The appointment process will begin soon and continue into late spring.  As President-Elect and on behalf of your section chair-elects, I encourage you to join us in shaping the future of ALCTS and of our profession. 

Dear ALCTS Members,

Now is the time to volunteer for an ALCTS committee! The appointment process will begin soon and continue into late spring.  As President-Elect and on behalf of your section chair-elects, I encourage you to join us in shaping the future of ALCTS and of our profession. 

As a fellow member, many of you are already aware of the benefits both personally and professionally of being involved in your association.  ALCTS needs you.  Whether you are a longstanding or a new member, I hope you will consider giving of your time, talent, energy, and expertise in support of the ALCTS community.  Listen to ALCTS member video testimonials as they explain “Why ALCTS?”  

To volunteer for ALCTS committees you need to fill out the volunteer form from the Volunteering for ALCTS Committees page.  Please fill out the form completely.  There is space for you to tell us about yourself.  Please do so.  The more we know about your talents and interests, the better we will be able to position you within the organization.  Appointing officers in ALCTS do their very best to match your volunteer preferences with available openings.      

If you aren’t sure where your interests and talents might find the best match, look over the complete list of ALCTS Committees found on the Committees page.  There are links to committee web pages detailing the charge, roster, and other information for each committee.  You can volunteer for committees within your section of ALCTS, and for Division level committees that report to the Board.  Pick out several of interest to you, and fill out the volunteer form.   

If you would like more information about a particular committee, feel free to send an email to the appointing officer for the committee.  For section committees, the appointing officer is the Section Chair-Elect.  For division committees, the appointing officer is the ALCTS President-Elect.  Express your interest in serving on the committee, and ask about current openings. 

If you are asked to consider service on a committee you did not request, please don’t turn down the appointment.  Sometimes there are committees for which there are few volunteers.  Service on any committee is valuable both for you and for ALCTS.     

Also, don’t forget about our Interest Groups.  These groups offer a wide variety of activities around a tightly focused issue or topic that can complement your service on a committee.  Each Interest Group has openings for a chair, co-chair, vice-chair and other positions.  Let the current chair know you are interested in helping out by contacting them directly. 

Thank you for your interest in volunteering and for your commitment to the future of ALCTS. 

Creating the Future, Preserving the Past

All the best,

Mary Beth

Discussion Save the date for the ALCTS Midwinter Symposium Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion: Creating a New Future for Library Collections

by Brooke Morris (staff) on Wed, Oct 26, 2016 at 12:47 pm

Equity, diversity, and inclusion are important concepts for libraries and librarians as the nation’s population becomes more diverse, inclusiveness more essential, and access to information critical. In fact, equity, diversity, and inclusion are so significant that the American Library Association (ALA) has devoted substantial resources to promoting these essential values.

Equity, diversity, and inclusion are important concepts for libraries and librarians as the nation’s population becomes more diverse, inclusiveness more essential, and access to information critical. In fact, equity, diversity, and inclusion are so significant that the American Library Association (ALA) has devoted substantial resources to promoting these essential values. Nowhere in the library are these concepts so pressing as in library collections, and the ability of libraries to represent a more diverse clientele, provide the equity of access needed to their collections, and include all is tantamount.

The Association for Library Collections and Technical Services (ALCTS) is proud to present its full-day Midwinter Symposium Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion: Creating a New Future for Library Collections at the ALA Midwinter Meeting in Atlanta, Ga. on Friday, January 20. Part of the extensive Midwinter programming from ALCTS, this symposium examines the critical roles of equity, diversity, and inclusion in today’s libraries.This not to be missed event touches on many aspects of library collection, including equitable access to collections, scholarly communication and diversity, diversity and visibility in collection development and management, inclusion and advocacy in cataloging, and diversity and inclusion in preservation. Speakers include Courtney Young, Hannah Buckland, Charlotte Roh, Harrison Inefuku, Paolo Gujilde, Emily Drabinski, Ann Marie Willer, and Mark Puente.

No matter your role in the library, acquisitions, access, collection management, or preservation, library collections are evolving in support of the values of equity, diversity, and inclusion. Furthering discussions on metadata, open access, and preserving diverse voices in collections are critical as libraries face challenges in a rapidly changing society. This symposium explores the work occurring now, progress made, and what the future holds.

Register today for this timely and important symposium, and join your colleagues for stimulating presentations and riveting discussions on the intersection of collections and equity, diversity, and inclusion at the 2017 ALCTS Midwinter Symposium.

Online registration is available through the ALA 2017 Midwinter Meeting web site. You can include this symposium in your conference registration or register for it alone. The cost of this full-day ALCTS symposium is $219 for ALCTS members, $269 for ALA members, $319 for non-members, and $99 for ALA student members and retired members, and the registration event code is ALC1. 

A complete listing of ALCTS events at Midwinter is available, and you can follow ALCTS on social media using #alctsmw17 to get the latest details about ALCTS Midwinter programming.

(cross-posted – please excuse duplication)

The Association for Library Collections & Technical Services (ALCTS) seeks panelists for a program to be held at the 2017 ALA Annual Conference in Chicago.  “Creating the Future of Digital Scholarship Together: Collaboration from Within Your Library” will feature librarians involved in the provision of digital scholarship services describing the range of opportunities for technical services ' contribution in this emerging field of librarianship.  We seek speakers who will provide case studies to stimulate ideas for collaboration between digital scholarship and technical services librarians.  The program is expected to attract a diverse audience, including librarians from technical services, public services, and digital scholarship and digital humanities services.  The date of the program is yet to be determined, but will occur on either Saturday, June 24 or Sunday, June 25, 2017.

Those interested in participating on the panel should send an email to the program planners (contact information below) describing the digital scholarship efforts in which they are involved, and specifically contributions those in technical services areas (e.g., cataloging/metadata services, collection development, preservation) serve in this regard.  We are interested in highlighting cross-divisional, collaborative digital scholarship activities as proof of concept for those who have yet to undertake a more holistic approach to provision of digital scholarship services.  Our goal is to pull together a complementary set of three presentations that emphasize the differing aspects of and approaches to digital scholarship activities in today’s libraries.

To propose your topic, include:

  • A description of the proposed presentation in 200 words or less.

  • The digital scholarship efforts in which you are involved, and specifically contributions those in technical services areas (e.g., cataloging/metadata services, collection development, preservation) serve in this regard.

November 15-16, 2016

 

Moderated by Andrea Tomlinson and Victoria Orzechowski

 

Please join us for an e-forum discussion. It’s free and open to everyone!

As librarians, we are well aware that social media can be a valuable tool for promoting collections and connecting with our patrons.

Please join us as we discuss policies, procedures, and best practices for using social media to showcase library collections in an engaging way as well as the work that goes on behind the scenes to make these materials available for use.

Discussion ALCTS CaMMS Catalog Management Interest Group: Call for Proposals

by Andrew Sulavik on Thu, Oct 13, 2016 at 12:40 pm

DEADLINE November 18, 2016

==================

The ALCTS CaMMS Catalog Management Interest Group is seeking proposals for presentations at its 2017 ALA Mid-Winter meeting in Atlanta, Georgia. The program is scheduled for Saturday, January 21 from 1:00-2:30 p.m.

The Theme is: Librarians as a Developer Community: Projects that Can and Should be Replicated

DEADLINE November 18, 2016

==================

The ALCTS CaMMS Catalog Management Interest Group is seeking proposals for presentations at its 2017 ALA Mid-Winter meeting in Atlanta, Georgia. The program is scheduled for Saturday, January 21 from 1:00-2:30 p.m.

The Theme is: Librarians as a Developer Community: Projects that Can and Should be Replicated

With the development and implementation of RDA, BIBFRAME, linked data, etc., libraries are increasingly being asked to adapt and innovate. At the same time there is rarely adequate funding or staffing available to devote to such projects.

We are seeking presentations on projects that succeeded in implementing a new or enhanced service, or developed a forward-thinking approach to improving or customizing discovery and access within your discovery platform or catalog. These projects should have been accomplished without requesting additional funds (or perhaps allocating minimal funds) and that can be replicated by a peer institution that does not have the resources to develop it, but could apply it. We encourage projects that used talent culled from your wider community, but ask that your presentations are kept ILS platform agnostic.

While the project can include developing an "add on" by writing code or using APIs, we are open to any innovative project that enhances cataloging services. No project should be considered too small or too large for submission.

Each presenter will be given approximately 20 minutes. Additional time will be allowed for questions and discussion.

The charge of the Catalog Management IG is: To discuss the various issues involved with cataloging, classification, authority control, and metadata application after the initial cataloging has been performed, including its impact on discovery. The group will provide a forum for exchanging information and discussing techniques, new developments, and problems in managing the data integrity of library catalogs and related discovery tools.

Please email proposal titles, abstracts, name(s) and affiliation(s) of presenter(s) to co-chairs by Friday, November 18, 2016. If you have questions, please contact us. We look forward to hearing from you.
