Managing Virtual Library Collections with E-Metrics
with Andrew White and Eric Djiva Kamal - 1 hour WEB CONFERENCE
E-metrics are not simply another way of collecting library performance measures. They offer a look at an infinite variety of dimensions that easily surpass the accuracy and value of any prior attempt at quantifying library operations. Correctly employing e-metrics can streamline, integrate, and supplement the majority of statistical-gathering efforts. The session will focus on e-metrics as a cost and collection analysis tool for digital and virtual library collections comprised of formats like abstracted and full-text e-journals, subscription index research databases, and e-books. For the technical folks who put theory into practice, we also cover the how-to procedural tasks and considerations.
Wednesday, Apr. 11, 3-4pm ET (12-1pm, PT)
Copyright and e-journals
with Brett Waytuck - 1 hour WEB CONFERENCE
This session will provide a frank look at e-journals and copyright in libraries - what you can do, what you can't do, and what you can tell your patrons.
Examining e-journals in libraries, the session will discuss issues related to copyright and acceptable use. The session will also look at user expectations and proactive licensing.
Thursday, Apr. 12, 4-5pm ET (1-2pm, PT)
Collaborating with the REST of the Professional School Staff
with Lesley Farmer - 1 hour AUDIO CONFERENCE
It's time to reach out and collaborate with the rest of the school community, specifically other educational service providers: reading specialists, special education teachers, counselors, health personnel, technology staff, and athletic/activity directors. Starting with an overview of how schools work--and how the media specialist fits into the larger organization--this session describes the work and expertise of each type of professional service personnel. What can each contribute to the library media program, and how can the library media specialist help these staff? Find out how the new model of collaborative leadership can make a difference in students' lives -- and how LMSs can measure that impact.
Friday, Apr. 13, 1-2pm ET (10-11am, PT)
LGBTQ -- More than an acronym
Library Services for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgendered, Queer Patrons
with Denyse Rodriques and Stuart von Wolff - 1 hour WEB CONFERENCE
Providing information on LGBTQ issues and services to LGBTQ communities can be challenging due to societal and historical barriers influencing institutions' policies and individuals' perceptions of these communities.
Considering public and academic library settings for both young adults (YA) and adults, we shall examine common definitions and perceptions; develop an awareness of and sensitivity to these communities, by exploring issues and challenges in providing information and services; and, finally, we shall discuss practical strategies for improving library services in these areas and to these communities.
