LEARNING ANALYTICS: A PRIMER FOR ACADEMIC LIBRARIANS
Thursday, June 8 | 1 - 2 PM ET
A Primer for Academic Librarians learning analytics refers to the measurement, collection, analysis and reporting of data on the progress of learners and the contexts in which the learning takes place. Learning analytics tools and programs are being implemented on campuses across the globe, but we don’t hear much about learning analytics in Canada, and we hear even less in libraries. With the increased focus in Canada on learning outcomes and retention this may be about to change. Academic librarians should be ready to contribute to those conversations (and even start them!). Find out how learning analytics is being implemented in other jurisdictions, what are the areas of research, who are the key campus partners, and what learning analytics tools are are available today. When the conversation about learning analytics happens on your campus, make sure the library is a constructive partner.
DIGITIZING NEWSPAPER COLLECTIONS: HOW TO SHARE YOUR COMMUNITY NEWS ONLINE
Tuesday, June 20 | 1 - 2 PM ET
Most of our heritage newspaper collections are locally held on microfilm or archived paper copies, making them difficult and time consuming to access. Today, researchers of all ages expect to find almost everything online, and digitizing community newspaper collections not only increases access, but can build community interaction and help organizations reach an audience near and far without straining staff and budgets. Join us to learn about the nuts and bolts of getting started and what to expect when you’re working with newspapers. We’ll also talk about sustainable approaches to strategically increasing use of your local history and community collections.

Have you ever felt like a fraud? Or that you didn’t have enough experience or knowledge to succeed in your job? There is no denying the existence of imposter syndrome in countless disciplines and professional practices (just Google it). Feelings of imposter syndrome are common in the modern workplace, including in libraries and other information settings. In this webinar we will use personal experience and research to explore imposter syndrome through the lens of library professionals. So what’s to blame? We’ll talk about competition in the job market, burnout rates, social media and the need for non-traditional skills in a dynamic field. Attendees will have the opportunity to examine and develop strategies for managing imposter syndrome and will leave with tips and tools for managing imposter syndrome.
