With the rising number of distance students and online classes, demand for online library instruction is growing. In response to interest at MU, two face-to-face library workshops on reference management software (EndNote and Zotero) have been adapted for synchronous online classes, using the software Blackboard Collaborate and input from the MU e-learning librarian. This session will explore strategies instructors used to adapt their workshops to the online environment and examine how responses from students led to further online classes and opportunities for online instruction.

Smaller institutions often do not have the funding or technical capabilities to operate a full-fledged digital archive. OMEKA.net offers a non-technical, cloud-based service that institutions can use to host their digital collections and exhibitions. Come and see how one institution is making use of this standards-based tool to make its archival material collections accessible!

Where's the book? How to use Access to track incoming and outgoing courier mail

Missouri S&T instituted an Access database to track its incoming and outgoing courier mail over 3 years ago. This database has proved extremely useful in tracking an item's whereabouts, especially if a patron claims to have returned the item. We will demonstrate the basic parameters of how our database is constructed, how we use queries to find information about courier items, and how other libraries can create their own database, even if they aren't Access experts.

Creating a Lab-Based Course for Use of Information Resources

Day: 
Tuesday
Time: 
11:15pm
Room:

Computer: 
I will use my Windows laptop

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.

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!

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.
