Introduction to Data Management: The Big Picture for Research & the Small Picture for My Library.  This will be a basic introduction to data management, who requires it, why we should be doing it, and how to get started.  As Librarians we create a lot of data, ref desk stats, circulation stats, etc. but how are we managing our own data?  This presentation will give you a place to start in your own library.

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

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).
