Minutes of the Communication and Teaching at the Point of Need Committee

 

Meeting was held virtually on 8/6/12 at 10:00AM EST using Blackboard Collaborate. 

 

Committee members were given a rundown of the RSS Board meeting held Friday, July 20th including the charge by the Board to take on the issue of ebooks and technology in the library.

 

Of note – there was one public librarian, one specialty librarian (art), and the remainder of the Committee is made up of academic librarians.  As a result, there was much valuable discussion as all were geographically dispersed and worked in different types of libraries.  

 

Discussion:

Most students prefer paper textbooks.  Ebooks in a reference situation might be ok.

 

Question raised:  How to eliminate fear of technology by patrons.  How to figure out what patrons want. 

 

Important to let patrons learn to discover resources – libraries have more than just books. 

 

The Committee decided that the issue of technology in libraries was much broader than ebooks.  Should we pursue electronic resources in general? 

 

How to let patrons know that technology is available at the library and to use the resources that are the libraries and librarians. 

 

Educating the patrons and the staff.  Adjunct faculty are teaching in multiple institutions may not realize that all universities do not have access to the same databases through each library. 

 

Presentation or training or ? knowing how to speak to faculty – get librarians to the point where they can “promote” what the library has to the faculty.  Who is the customer??

 

Adjunct and new professors – disconnect between librarians who may not have the same access to the databases at the libraries.

 

**Best practices:  how are people handling these issues? 

 

Portfolio of successful practices? 

 

Goals: 

Assemble a portfolio of best practices for the discovery of and help with technological resources in the library.  Possible outcomes:  flow chart.  Issues:  adjunct faculty vs “regular” different learning styles (art/specialty library versus academic versus public)

Awareness of resources (discovery) community connections; teaching via in-person, IM, text and other

Communication is Challenging!

F/U

CS design survey in survey monkey

Create doc in connect (Holly and committee)

Write up goals and send to committee for approval this week Christine

Next collaborate meeting:  TBA; email communications
