Creating a Lab-Based Course for Use of Information Resources

Day: 
Tuesday
Time:

Computer:

Many of the elements in a credit-bearing course for information resources do not lend themselves to a lecture-based format. While a completely online course may not be practical for learning library skills, a combination of lecture, online materials, and in-class exercises can take the place of a more traditional classroom format. At Truman State University, we have spent the last year adapting our Use of Information Resources course to involve less lecture time and more hands-on activities.

Stu-jitsu: The Gentle Art of Supervising Student Workers

The hiring, training, supervising and retention of student workers are lynchpins in the successful delivery of services in an academic library regardless of the size of the library and its parent institution. Yet how often are these student worker processes given their due attention and time? How can you optimize your efforts to make your student workers are a value added work force and not just warm bodies that get tasks done in a just acceptable fashion? How can you train your students to learn multiple technologies even as they change such as the transition from Millennium to Sierra?

Co-presenter(s): 
Ngaire Smith, Reference and Instruction Librarian, Missouri State University Libraries

In July 2012, we attended the Association of College and Research Libraries Information Literacy Immersion Program. This session will cover how we have changed our information literacy instruction based on what we learned at Immersion. We will model the instructional design process and discuss integrating both active learning and assessment into library instruction. We will also show some fun and useful tips and tricks on using technology consciously within instruction sessions. And, like any good teacher, we will make you participate!

Why Do Undergraduate Students Choose to Use E-books?

As an innovation, the e-book purports to replace the printed book; however, students continue to indicate a preference for using printed books. In contrast to students’ preference, many academic libraries report e-book use rates equal to or greater than printed book use rates. In this study, eight factors were investigated as potential reasons undergraduate students choose to use an e-book. A quantitative research design using a convenience sampling method and chi-square analyses was employed in the study.

Making the Numbers Speak: Creating an Annual Statistical Report for Washington University Libraries

Co-presenter(s): 
Carol Mollman, Assessment Coordinator, Washington University Libraries
Stephanie Atkins, Head of Access, Washington University Libraries
Kate Sathi, Library Supervisor, Acquisitions Dept.
Shannon Showers, Digital Projects Librarian

Like most libraries, Washington University Libraries collects enormous amounts of data. Organizing, analyzing and communicating that data can be a real challenge. The Annual Statistical Report project was developed in order to help us organize, and think differently about our data. In this presentation, we will discuss the process of gathering and sorting the data for the annual report, and how the team used graphs, charts and infographics to analyze and communicate the data. We will also talk about the lessons learned, and what we expect to change in the next round.

Fostering Classroom Interaction

During this "flash session," I will describe a program we are developing on the Missouri Campus of A.T. Still University that involves encouraging faculty and students to interact more in the classroom through use of technology. We have a room dedicated for faculty, staff, and student use allowing for jazzing up PowerPoints, doing VoiceOvers for PowerPoints, Creating Videos, using alternatve Presentation Styles, Editing Videos, and so forth. The space includes a dedicated printer, a PC computer, Macintosh Computer, and a Scanner.

Co-presenter(s): 
Bianca Ray, Circulation Coordinator, Lindenwood University

Do your students ask where your fiction section is or where your novels are? Are your patrons asking what they should read over break? In the past couple of years, Butler Library at Lindenwood University realized a need for reader’s advisory services and recreational reading materials for our community. We will share how we have begun to meet this need and the possibilities we have of meeting this need in the future. Throughout, we will offer an abundance of ideas to provide readers’ advisory services and promote recreational reading in your academic library.
