ALCTS webinar: Using LibGuides in Technical Services

Date: Wednesday, April 15, 2015

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

Description: Technical services departments in academic libraries have struggled to communicate effectively with other library departments, particularly public services departments. As academic libraries acquire large numbers of digital resources, technical services departments are increasingly responsible for providing current information about those resources to public services staff. In this webinar, the presenter will discuss the process of creating, testing, and implementing a LibGuide as a way of communicating much-needed information between technical services and public services staff at Miami University Libraries.

Learning outcomes: Upon completion of this session, attendees will have learned how to efficiently utilize external sources (e.g., RSS feeds, Google forms and docs, widgets) within a LibGuide. Attendees will also learn the value of a LibGuide for technical services work and intra-library communications.

Who should attend? Technical services department staff and managers, including acquisitions, cataloging, serials, or e-resources staff; collection management staff

Presenter: Jennifer Bazeley has a BM and an MM in viola performance from the Eastman School of Music, and an MLIS from Dominican University in Illinois. She has worked in technical services at the library in the Field Museum in Chicago, the Mason Public Library in Ohio, and the library at the Cincinnati Art Museum. She began working in the Miami University Library in Oxford, OH in 2009, and is currently Interim Head of Technical Services.
