This will be a virtual meeting, using Adobe Connect. Use this URL to attend the meeting http://ala.adobeconnect.com/r297nvpqn99/.  You will need a USB headset (one with an internet connection) to use the VoIP feature in Adobe Connect. It is recommended that you have headsets with microphones available and that you have the most current version of Flash player on your computer. Additional tips on Adobe Connect are listed below.

  1. Use Firefox, if possible - Internet Explorer and Chrome seem to have some issues.
  2. Make certain you have an updated version of Flash.
  3. Only use PDF or PPT files
  4. You will need a headset for VoIP. If you are using a machine with a built-in microphone, you will need to disable the built-in microphone and enable the microphone on your headset (a USB headset is best).
  5. Once you enter Adobe Connect (you will sign in as a guest--so no log-in is needed), you will need to click on the speaker and microphone icons to activate--both need to be GREEN.
  6. Please allow a few minutes to get in and test your audio, etc. before the start time.
  7. To test audio, click on 'Meeting' in upper left corner. Choose the audio set-up wizard. Click through every step, making sure the dropdown is set to your USB headset, and click through to the very last screen. IMPORTANT: You must click all the way through the audio wizard in order to save your selections.

Discussion Next steps for the new Social Work Liaison's Toolkit

by Susan Wortman on Mon, Apr 14, 2014 at 03:46 pm

Hi All, 

Hi All, 

Sara Memmott, our committee web person has started the bare-bones of our new Social Work Liaison Toolkit, based on content from our Google Doc. Please take a look at the site and send me any feedback or comments. The hope is to complete this project and have it up and available on the EBSS Social Work/Social Welfare Committee web space before ALA Annual. 

 

Thanks!

Discussion Virtual Meeting Notes - August 16, 2013

by Susan Wortman on Fri, Aug 16, 2013 at 02:21 pm

Here is a brief synopsis of our Google Hangout meeting that took place this afternoon at 2:00 EST
 
We went through what is currently on the Google Docs page, 
http://tinyurl.com/SWselectorstoolkit section by section, talked about what needed to be worked on and what sections were near completion.
 

Here is a brief synopsis of our Google Hangout meeting that took place this afternoon at 2:00 EST
 
We went through what is currently on the Google Docs page, 
http://tinyurl.com/SWselectorstoolkit section by section, talked about what needed to be worked on and what sections were near completion.
 
We mentioned that some sections were duplicating current resources and that we might not want to create a repetition of something already created. People felt this how and where the guide was finally published would clarify whether we needed to duplicate efforts or use link to other resources. 

 

We talked about how to go about publishing this. I mentioned that I contacted the publishers of the Sudden Selector's Guides to see if there would be interest in a social work resources guide. Other members of the EBSS Social Work/Social Welfare committee were not interested in pursuing this. They mentioned that printed guides like this become dated quickly and that this would be a lot of work. We will not pursue this as a committee. 

 

Other publishing options mentioned were the EBSS wiki and Wordpress. Communication Studies used the EBSS wiki platform for a similar guide. Laura Kottutsky explored using WordPress to publish the guide. This group talked with Sara Memmott, who is our liaison to the EBSS Publications and Communications Committee about the process we would need to go through to publish this guide. Sara will check into this and let us know within the next 2 weeks. There was concern that a guide would not be findable if we used the EBSS wiki. Sara and members will experiment with current EBSS wikis and see if this is a legitimate concern. 

 

We currently don't have anyone taking the lead for the open access section so we will work on updating this area together. If someone wants to volunteer to spearhead this section please speak up! We talked about including an introduction to the section along with other resources on OA, like the DOAJ and others. 
 
We agreed that each section should include a brief introduction and that each resource should include in it's description why it's included.
 
Our next steps will be to explore both the EBSS wiki and WordPress, get word from the Publications Communications Committee on process and platform and then start working to get this resource published. 
 
We will be in touch via email or ALA Connect.

Discussion EBSS Social Work/Social Welfare Committee - Annual Meeting 2013

by Susan Wortman on Tue, Jul 2, 2013 at 11:31 am

Hello All,

Thanks to those of you who were able to attend our annual meeting on Sunday in Chicago. We seem to have an exciting and engaged group this year. I have created a poll in ALA Connect for committee members to vote to accept the minutes I wrote for this meeting. They need to be reviewed by the committee and accepted before being sent to our EBSS Secretary Bruce Stoffel. Please take a few minutes to review these and vote by next week. If you would rather just email me saying you approve the minutes that would be fine, too.

Hello All,

If you would rather just email me saying you approve the minutes that would be fine, too.

Since I neglected to print out our Midwinter meeting minutes I will attach both those minutes and the minutes from this past meeting Saturday, June 30 so that you can review both together. There are polls attached to each of these in ALA Connect but, again, if you would rather just send me your approval or concerns/additions to these minutes via email that's fine.

I look forward to working with all of you this year.

Best,

Sue

Discussion Social Work Selector's Toolkit - PDF Archive of Web Pages

by Susan Wortman on Fri, Jan 18, 2013 at 07:05 am

An archival copy of the Social Work Selector's Toolbox is attached to this announcement as a PDF. The Social Work Selector's Toolbox is currently a part of the EBSS web site (http://www.ala.org/acrl/aboutacrl/directoryofleadership/sections/ebss/eb...) but will be taken down because it is out of date. The committee intends to update the toolbox and offer it in a different format but is archiving this old version here on ALA Connect as a PDF. 

Discussion Link to Social Work Selector's Toolkit Google Doc

by Susan Wortman on Wed, Jan 9, 2013 at 03:46 pm

Here's the link to a bare-bones Google Doc I set up for our group to work on gathering information for a new selector's toolkit. All I did was add headings on different pages to represent the sections we discussed in our meeting today. I also added a section for collecting helpful resources for policy assignments, which was a suggestion from Susan Edwards, who couldn't make the meeting. 

 

Take a look and go to work, adding content ideas!
