Hello everyone,

As you might remember from an announcement in early January, our proposal for a program about applications in the health sciences was accepted for annual 2013 with the provision that we join STS who also proposed a program on this topic. Great minds do seem to think alike!! I have communicated with the STS program commitee and we have decided that we will have a panel of three speakers on the following topics:

Bringing Your A Game: Active Learning Strategies that Actually Work – Saturday June 25th, 10:30-11:30am

Orange County Convention Center, Room W307C

Do you have a tried and true strategy that is successful class after class?  Did you try something that worked okay but needs tweaking?  Is it a worksheet?  Do you want it to be a worksheet?  Is the activity done during the library session?  Is it homework?  Then tell us about it! Join your colleagues for a morning of active learning strategies that have engaged students and created improved information literacy skills.  No need to register in advance, just come to the meeting and show us how you do it.  If you do have a handout or worksheet bring enough to share! - See more at: http://connect.ala.org/node/254473#sthash.IWQ16Yjx.dpuf

 

Implementing Health and Medical Reference Guidelines: Training librarians, Paraprofessionals and Part Time Staff – Saturday June 25th, 1:00-2:30pm

HYATT Regency Orlando, Room Barrel Springs II

The RUSA Health and Medical Reference Guidelines were revised in 2015, and present a major revision to the previous guiding documents on the best practices for medical reference service. These guidelines were designed for use in libraries regardless of type and cover a broad range of possible reference interactions. This program will highlight how these guides can best be implemented in your library, including how to train professional as well as non-professional staff regarding what are often sensitive reference questions. This forum is co-sponsored by ACRL’s Heath Sciences Interest Group (HSIG).

When: Monday, June 29, 2015, 8:30 to 10:00 am in the Moscone Convention Center - 2014 (West Building)

Citizen science is the practice of non-experts contributing to or engaging in scientific research across all disciplines. This panel, comprised of scientists and librarians, will highlight various citizen science projects and discuss how libraries can become involved and support these initiatives. For academic libraries, citizen science promotes science and information literacy among students as well as connects community members with researchers to bring about new discoveries. This program is co-sponsored in name only by the ACRL Instruction Section and the ACRL Health Sciences Interest Group.
