Libraries Thriving Learning Community—Fall 2011

Organized by Credo Reference and LYRASIS

 

Could you use a sounding board for a project at your institution that you have always wanted to accomplish?

 

Would you like to join a community where colleagues challenge and support one another's learning and growth toward shared e-resources goals?

 

Do you want to engage in conversations and actions—to become critical colleagues—to transform what it means to have a thriving library?

 

If you answered YES to any of these questions, you are ready to become a member of a professional learning community organized by Credo Reference and LYRASIS.

The Libraries Thriving Learning Community invites us to think about and engage on key current issues with the aim of developing approaches, solutions and responses that demonstrate the effectiveness of individual library professionals as well as libraries’ effectiveness within the institutions of which they are a part. From October through December 2011 community participants will engage in a variety of interactions, primarily online, with occasional in-person meetings, to explore and experiment with the kinds of individual and institutional actions needed for libraries to thrive. Sharing a vision for collaborative, creative, and positively-focused libraries and library professionals, Credo Reference and LYRASIS are providing facilitation and technical support for this unique community.

 Dear Fellow Members of the Educational Community,

Libraries Thriving
 A Collaborative Space for E-Resource Innovation. Thinking and Doing.

http://www.librariesthriving.org

 

 Dear Fellow Members of the Educational Community,

I would like to invite you to join the Libraries Thriving online community, a space dedicated to communicating the value of libraries and their ability to impact the learning moment.  Libraries Thriving differs from other professional networks and online communities that you’re involved in because what happens in our space is theory combined with practical examples. Comprised of librarians, faculty, publishers, library vendors, researchers and other educators, this collaborative community is for sharing ideas and working together towards the common goal of increasing innovative use of e-resources.

 

There are numerous benefits to participating in this innovative online community including:

 

 1.       The Opportunity to Attend Free Educational Seminars

With the Credo Reference Online Seminar Series--Summer 2011 beginning in July, there are still seats available to attend three informative seminars on subjects relevant to e-resource use in libraries.

 Interested? Learn more here: Credo Reference Online Seminar Series--Summer 2011

 

2.       The Chance to Discuss E-resource Topics with Other Information Professionals

The conversation about topics such as small library issues and information literacy have already started… what do you have to add?

 Add your experience and insight here: Editor Forum

 

3.       The Possibility of becoming a “Critical Colleague” through Participation in a Learning Community

With the Libraries Thriving Learning Community Spring 2011 wrapping up, there are numerous opportunities to engage in both conversations and actions to transform what it means to have a thriving library.

 To learn more about these projects, click here:  Spring 2011 Learning Community

 

4.       The Opportunity to Let Your Voice Be Heard

As a community primarily interested in collaboration, we are very open to your ideas and suggestions.  If you visit the site and expect to see something that isn’t there yet or you have any idea of how we can make this community even more successful, e-mail me at laura.warren@credoreference.com or Jackie LaPlaca, Credo Evangelist, at Jackie.laplaca@credoreference.com. We’d love to discuss ways to implement your idea.

 

Visit Libraries Thriving today and sign up for the Libraries Thriving Newsletter to keep up with exciting community happenings!  If you’re interested in being a part of the Fall 2011 Learning Community, please e-mail Jackie.laplaca@credoreference.com for more information.

 

Let the collaboration and innovative use of e-resources begin!

 

Sincerely,

 Laura Warren
