THE MONTH OF FEBRUARY
________________________


Begins Monday, Feb. 12th, 8-week on-line course
Beyond Google: Searching Faster and Smarter on the Web
with  Rita Vine

You know about the "invisible" Web. You've heard about the limitations
of even the "best" search engines. You understand how advertisers
influence search results in popular search tools. You know that there is
more to the Web than Google, but what other options are out there to
find quality information on the open Web? How do you put that knowledge
into practice to help you save time and search the Web more
efficiently?

Learn best practices for effective Web searching without leaving your
desk! Designed by Canada's leading on-line searcher and trainer, this
on-line program is designed for experienced Web searchers who want to
expand their Web search horizons and go beyond search engines to other
high quality sources of information. Participants will be introduced to
a wide variety of resources and top Web starting points, and will
discover the best ways to search them effectively.

Wednesday, Feb. 14th, 3-4pm ET (12-1pm PT)
Part of the RESEARCH METHODS SERIES
Using Interviews as a Research Method in Your Library
with  Lisa M. Given   - 1 hour AUDIO CONFERENCE

This session will explore strategies for conducting effective
interviews, including issues related to question design and preparation
for data analysis. Related topics, such as implications for ethics
review, how to use interviews alongside other methods, and data
gathering methods will be discussed.

Thursday, Feb. 15th, 3-4pm ET (12-1pm, PT)
Placemaking: creating libraries as Public Spaces
with  Eric Stackhouse and  Linda Arsenault  - 1 hour WEB CONFERENCE

Libraries can be great public spaces - contributing to the social,
cultural and learning heart of a community. To make it happen,
administrators and managers need a community-based process to engage all
stakeholders in the concept, planning, and implementation. Find out how
to proceed, based on the successful lessons learned from the Project for
Public Spaces, a non-profit organization dedicated to creating and
sustaining public place that build communities.

The session will provide the principles of making great public spaces,
providing real life examples, and suggesting methods to move forward
with community consultation and planning.

Begins Monday, Feb 19th, 6-week On-line Course
Canadian Government Documents and Information on the Web
with Jeff Moon

Governments around the world have embraced the Web as a major
publication tool for government documents, laws, statistics, and
citizen-based information. Web-based government information is a great
enhancement to a library collection -- if you know how to find and use
these resources.

Designed for general librarians and professionals without an extensive
background searching for government information, this course will
introduce you to key Canadian government information sources on the
Internet. The program is focused primarily on Canadian Federal
publications and related information. We'll cover a new topic in each
week of this six-week program and provide exercises to help you practice
using these resources effectively.

Tuesday, Feb. 20th, 1-2pm ET (11am-12pm, PT)
Part of the TECH TUESDAYS: TALKING WITH TECHIES Series
Teaching Web Searching and Google
with Greg Notess

While Google dominates the search world, few know all of its search
capabilities. Other search engines have much to offer as well. How can
construct lesson plans and instructional goals when so much of it can
change from one day to the next? This talk covers unique instructional
issues with search engines and solutions. It looks at advantages,
disadvantages, and techniques for hands-on training, demonstration
sessions, and on-line screencasts for use in teaching others to search
more effectively amidst the wealth of information on the Web.

Wednesday, Feb. 21st, 3-4pm ET (12-1pm, PT)
Part of the THE NEXT GENERATION CATALOGUE A SERIES FOR THE 21ST
CENTURY, no.1
Social Discovery Systems
with Beth Jefferson

Our patrons are increasingly turning to the Web for rich, interactive,
community-based experiences, that are often centered on the information
and cultural products which are at the heart of our collections: books,
current events, movies, and music.

Many of our patrons spend a large portion of their leisure time
interacting with each other on-line: rating, reviewing, discussing,
tagging, and exploring new possibilities for reading, listening, and
viewing. For many, it is the equivalent of what hanging out in a library
and browsing the shelves and return carts once was.

How can we combine libraries' traditional strengths with emerging
social software trends to advance the interests and mission of libraries
in a wired world? Beth will explore options for developing the social
engagement of our communities from the local to the national level.

Libraries are uniquely positioned to bring social search and discovery
systems to mainstream audiences, and libraries could, if they came
together, have a huge impact in the next phase of the Web.

Thursday, Feb. 22nd, 3-4pm ET (12-1pm, PT)
BQ Wit and Wisdom: Insights for Info Pros
with  Barbara Quint - 1 hour AUDIO CONFERENCE

Prompted by the book edited a few years ago by Marylaine Block, The
Quintessential Searcher: The Wit & Wisdom of Barbara Quint, this session
features a fun and revealing interview with one of the information
industry's icons -- Barbara Quint. Her wit and wisdom along with her
insights and leading edge ideas are front and center during this
interesting and illuminating talk.


Friday, Feb. 23rd, 2-3pm ET (11am-12pm, PT)
 Ship to Shore: Looking at Immigration Records
with  Judith Argent    - 1 hour AUDIO CONFERENCE

Demystify Canadian and US Immigration records! Assist your researchers
to locate their immigrant ancestors quickly using easily available
sources.

This session will assist participants to understand why these records
are so important to genealogy research, where the records are, and how
to access them. Sources of genealogy information in the official records
of the nineteenth and twentieth century immigration to Canada and the US
will be explored. Passenger and immigration lists are only part of the
story! The speaker, Judith Argent, draws on her many years of
researching family history and library reference work to present this
seminar.

Monday, Feb. 26th, 3-4:30pm ET (12-1:30pm, PT)
Roving Reference: The Continuing Saga
with  Joan Giannone  - 1.5 hours AUDIO CONFERENCE

Back by popular demand, this session is a sequel to the popular audio
session featured in October, 2006, this time focusing on what Library
staff want and need to know in order to Rove more comfortably and
effectively.

Did you know that over 50% of your library users may never approach the
desk to ask for the help they need? These "hidden customers" will only
be served when you get out from behind the desk to provide Roving
Service.

In this presentation and interactive panel discussion, Joan Giannone
and representatives from several Library Systems will reveal the most
common challenges they struggled with to implement roving. More
importantly, they will share the best tips, practical approaches, tools
and solutions they have used to overcome their challenges and better
serve customers wherever they need assistance within their Library.

Don't struggle to create the roving wheel! Instead, become comfortable
and effective more quickly, avoiding some potholes in the road with the
practical tips, effective approaches, experience and guidance provided
in this valuable session.

Tuesday, Feb. 27th, 3-4pm ET (12-1pm, PT)
Mother Goose on the Loose
with  Betsy Diamant-Cohen   - 1 hour AUDIO CONFERENCE

Learn about the award-winning early literacy program, Mother Goose on
the Loose. After a brief review of theories of learning based on
findings in brain research, hear about the structure of Mother Goose on
the Loose and how it combines language, books, illustration, music,
movement, drama, and creative interaction to create an optimal learning
environment. Experience program songs and rhymes created by Canadian
music educator, Barbara Cass-Beggs. Connect the program components with
best practices for developing school readiness skills. Learn how to
incorporate all this into your own early childhood programs.

Wednesday, Feb. 28th 3-4pm ET (12-1pm, PT)
The Knowledge System in Society -- A Framework and Strategies for
Librarians' New Role as a Knowledge Worker
with  Paul J. Graham

The Knowledge System concept--most fully explained in sociological
scholarship--presents a novel way to understand the current processes of
a modern, rational, knowledge society: production, organization and use
of knowledge. One of the special consequences of this newly formed
society involves new divisions of labour, and new roles for the
Librarian. These are not new names for traditional jobs, but new tasks
and management streams for librarians to be active, invested
participants. The presentation will be divided into two main areas: 1)
describing the Knowledge System concept and its benefits and 2)
providing practical strategies and advice for research participation. As
this new role for librarians is not yet formalized in everyday practice,
I will conclude with emphasis on spreading this particular research
model to other libraries around Canada and the world. As a possible
focus, we can use the "communities of practice" model to foster this
development.
