ALCTS New Leaders

Online Doc Suggestions from alctsleaders listserv on New Leaders Orientation needs (November 2009)

by Melinda Flannery on Mon, Dec 21, 2009 at 03:42 pm

Hints and tips about how to find, contact, and appoint individuals, and then how to mentor and support them in their new roles so that they can grow professionally and be successful leaders themselves.

List of things you should know/do as IG chair, as program chair, etc.  What meetings do you need to attend?  What deadlines do you need to meet?

Q Calendar for planning purposes e.g. by "mid-[month]" preliminary program proposals to the Program Committee, "two(?) weeks after" annual and mid-winter we need to have reports sent in, etc.

A Current calendar is at:  http://www.ala.org/ala/mgrps/divs/alcts/about/governance/org/cmtes/cmte_....  Put up in 2007, should be reviewed for accuracy and completeness.  Please comment on current state.

Obvious links to where "forms" (or whatever such things are called in Web 2.0) are located

"Bylaws for beginners"  including the constitution of the section executive committees and the Board, the differences between committees and IGs, and parliamentary procedure. (2)

"Panel" or focus group that is representative of the Division and the various Institution types, to help new leaders target area expertise within the organization that is representative of the IG or committee charge they are working on.

Structure of ALCTS and how it functions, who to contact (e.g. room reservations).  Publicizing w/i the association:  meetings, presentations/publications, mandatory reports.

YouTube video (I'm featuring something animated) that demonstrates how ideas flow upward for approval at various levels/committees of ALCTS, how responses get conveyed.  (Actually, an acting class could have a good time with that idea.)

Publication possibilities through ALCTS for all ALCTS Leaders? In the past, the editors of LRTS, ANO, and the ALCTS Papers Series all three participated in New Leader orientation programs (e.g. right of first refusal).

Information about Connect and how others are using it (3)

Basics of the web stuff - how to keep your group's web page updated; can someone do it for us, or do we have to do it ourselves? (2)

Webinar that could be recorded and posted to the web site (staff suggestion; referral to Keri Cascio)

ALCTS Role of the Professional Librarian in Technical Services Interest Group

Discussion RPLTS IG meeting at Midwinter in Boston: Announcement

by Robert Rendall on Fri, Jan 8, 2010 at 11:16 am

Boston Convention & Exhibition Center, Room 157A

ALCTS Interest Group: The Role of the Professional Librarian in Technical Services
Midwinter discussion and business meeting
Sunday, January 17, 2010
4:00-5:30 pm
Boston Convention & Exhibition Center, Room 157A

Everyone is cordially invited to join us at the midwinter meeting of the ALCTS Role of the Professional Librarian in Technical Services Interest Group.  We particularly welcome new technical services librarians and those returning to the field.  The Interest Group aims to provide a forum for informal and collegial discussion of issues facing professional librarians in technical services.

Our theme for this meeting is:

What is Technical Services?
The functions included under technical services can vary from one institution to another, and within individual libraries the definition may be changing as technical services librarians take on new roles.  How do libraries decide what to include as part of technical services?  And what is it like to move from one institution to another where the definition and the expectations may be different?

We will also leave time for open discussion, so attendees are encouraged to bring issues they would like to discuss with their peers.  We will conclude with a brief business meeting to collect suggestions for future topics and potential speakers.

Please forward this announcement to others who may be interested.

We look forward to seeing you in Boston!

Sandra Macke
Robert Rendall
co-chairs, RPLTS IG
