ALCTS e-Forum: Adapting Cataloging Workflows to a Batch Processing Environment

ALCTS e-Forum: Adapting Cataloging Workflows to a Batch Processing Environment

November 14-15, 2017

 

Moderated by Ethan Fenichel, Ariel Turner, and Susan Wynne

 

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

Mountain: 8 a.m. – 4 p.m.

Central: 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.

Eastern: 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.

 

Libraries increasingly rely on vendor-supplied records to improve efficiency and reduce duplication of effort. The quality of records may vary widely, and libraries may also need to make changes for local systems or workflows. Batch processing can be an efficient strategy to correct or enhance sets of records, but the power of batch processing tools also comes with many challenges and complexities. In this e-Forum, we will discuss the technical and organizational opportunities associated with managing vendor records, including issues of quality, techniques and tools for batch processing and loading, and workflows and best practices for vendor record sets.

Event ALCTS webinar: Library Services in Learning Management Systems

by Julene Jones on Mon, Oct 23, 2017 at 08:11 am

ALCTS webinar: Library Services in Learning Management Systems

ALCTS webinar: Library Services in Learning Management Systems

Date: Wednesday, November 1, 2017

 

All webinars are one hour in length and begin at 11 AM Pacific, noon Mountain, 1 PM Central, and 2 PM Eastern time.

 

Description:

 

The learning management system (LMS) has become a standard part of the higher education infrastructure, both for online and face-to-face courses.  Continuing growth in online course offerings and the mobility of digitally connected students make the LMS essential for sharing course content and enabling communication among faculty and students.  Along with instructor-created assignments and instructional modules, faculty add library-licensed content, open access and open educational resources, and other published sources to their LMS courses.  Often this leads to questions related to copyright management, content licensing, and the role of the library in these efforts.  This webinar will provide an overview of existing LMS systems and their capabilities.  We will then address considerations of content provision within the LMS, including the application of Fair Use exemptions, the TEACH Act, and systems that can be added to the LMS that help manage copyright and licensing issues.  Finally we will discuss the role of librarians as consultants on content discovery and using licensed and copyright-protected educational materials.

 

Learning outcomes:

 

Participants will

 

  • leave with an understanding of the LMS market and the common features of these systems that are relevant to sharing content with students; and

  • be introduced to key concepts in copyright related to sharing different types of content, from library-licensed resources to OER.

 

Who should attend?

 

Librarians working in collection development, electronic resources in libraries, licensing and rights management, and digital services.   

 

Presenters:

 

John J. Burke is Director of the Gardner-Harvey Library on the Middletown regional campus of Miami University. John is a past president of the Academic Library Association of Ohio and current board member of OhioNET. He holds an M.S. in library science from the University of Tennessee and a B.A. in history from Michigan State University. John has worked in public services, instruction, collection development, website design, and systems. He has published and presented nationally. John can be reached at burkejj@miamioh.edu.

Event ALCTS Web Course: Fundamentals of Acquisitions

by Jeremy Myntti on Mon, Oct 2, 2017 at 02:46 pm

ALCTS Web Course: Fundamentals of Acquisitions

ALCTS Web Course: Fundamentals of Acquisitions

Session 5: November 6 - December 15, 2017

This six-week online course is a basic primer for library acquisitions concepts common to all library materials formats. It covers:

  • Goals and methods of acquiring monographs and serials in all formats;

  • Theoretical foundations and workflows of basic acquisitions functions;

  • Financial management of library collections budgets;

  • Relationships among acquisitions librarians, library booksellers, subscription agents, and publishers.


This course provides a broad overview of the operations involved in acquiring materials after the selection decision is made.

In FOA, we distinguish between collection development, which involves the selection of materials for the library; and acquisitions, which orders, receives, and pays for those materials. In many libraries, selecting and acquiring materials may be done in the same department—in the smallest libraries perhaps even by the same person. In larger libraries, selection may be done by a collection development department and/or designated subject specialists, while a separate department acquires the selected materials.  In essence, acquisitions is a business operation, bringing materials into the library and licensing access to library collections and resources.

Who Should Attend:  As a fundamentals course, FOA is tailored for librarians and paraprofessionals new to the acquisitions field; and librarians and support staff from other library units and library school or LSSC students who want to know more about acquisitions.  Although FOA focuses on the acquisition of monographs in various physical formats, it covers key components of acquisition and licensing processes for all library materials, in all formats, in all types of libraries.

This course is one-third of the Collection Management Elective course approved by the Library Support Staff Certification Program (LSSCP).

Because success in acquisitions depends on ability to collaborate, negotiate, and be flexible to work out win-win solutions with others, this course includes collaborative and social elements.

Instructors

  • Eleanor Cook, Assistant Director for Discovery & Technical Services Academic Library Services, East Carolina University

  • Michelle Flinchbaugh, Acquisitions and Digital Scholarship Services Librarian, UMBC Library

  • Donna Smith, Assistant Head of Technical Services, Northern Kentucky University

  • Jennifer Arnold, Director, Library Services, Central Piedmont Community College

  • Kate B. Moore is Coordinator of Electronic Resources at Indiana University Southeast.

  • Christina Hennessey is Cataloging Librarian at Loyola Marymount University in California.

Event ALCTS webinar: Solutions for Copyright Issues in E-Learning

by Julene Jones on Mon, Aug 7, 2017 at 02:17 pm

Date: Wednesday, September 20, 2017

Date: Wednesday, September 20, 2017

All webinars are one hour in length and begin at 11am Pacific, noon Mountain, 1pm Central, and 2pm Eastern time.

 

Description: Libraries are spending increasingly large percentages of their budgets on electronic resources. As online education and the use of e-resources dramatically escalate, awareness of copyright issues becomes crucial, not only in the library world but also in the academic community as a whole. Libraries struggle to ensure copyright compliance for all materials used in electronic reserves and learning management systems (LMS). In switching to ProQuest SIPX for managing and sharing digital course materials, Pepperdine predicted savings in both staff time and copyright costs. The presenters will share how Pepperdine integrated SIPX with their LMS (Sakai) to allow them to easily find copyrighted course materials and to make the materials accessible from the Sakai Courses site. Ensuring that library resources and open content are visible through e-reserves translates into helping support the teaching and learning environment and closer library collaborations with IT and faculty.

 

Learning outcomes: Following the webinar, attendees will understand:

* How to deal with copyright management challenges in the era of nearly universal adoption of learning management systems.

* How integrating a tool such as SIPX with a learning management system can make it easier to find copyrighted course materials.

 

Who should attend?

Academic Librarians and librarians struggling with copyright issues in e-learning environments

 

Presenter:

Sally Bryant has been the Head of Access Services at Pepperdine University since 2007 and was Head of Technical Services prior to that. She also is the Library Liaison to Screenwriting and Film Studies and the division of International Studies and Languages, Screenwriting and Film Studies. As an undergraduate, Sally spent a year at the School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London. She has a Master’s degree in International Relations from American University and an MLIS from San Jose State University.
