Translating Failure Into Success, Deana Brown, Elizabeth Ramsey

Deana Brown

All of us have had to work through life challenges and perhaps even suffered professional setbacks. Whether it was a poorly attended program, a new instructional method that was ineffective, or getting started on professional development requirements, sharing our experiences of failure with each other in a safe and accepting space can be cathartic and informative. See what skeletons we have hiding in our closets, and learn how showing yours the light of day might be the most inspiring connection you make for yourself, your colleagues, and your library!

Student Perspectives Of Service Learning With Older Adults, Karen Brown, Carol Bashford Apr 2015

Student Perspectives Of Service Learning With Older Adults, Karen Brown, Carol Bashford

Karen Brown

The presenters will describe the findings of a mixed-methods research study designed to explore students’ perspectives of skills and knowledge gained through engaging with older adults with physical and/or cognitive limitations living in a continuing care retirement community (CCRC). Participants in the study included students enrolled as juniors and seniors in a baccalaureate nursing program. Community partnerships with several CCRCs provided the opportunities for students to interact with elders. During the service-learning course, students developed and implemented evidence-based health promotion activities directed towards enhancing the elders’ cognitive, physical, and psychosocial functioning. Additionally, students were paired, one-to-one, with an elder-partner ...


Library As Publisher: Are You Ready To Support Your Community By Assisting In Content Creation?, Teresa A. Fishel, Jacki Betsworth Mar 2015

Library As Publisher: Are You Ready To Support Your Community By Assisting In Content Creation?, Teresa A. Fishel, Jacki Betsworth

Teresa A. Fishel

A growing role for all types of libraries is to enable content creation by members of their community. One type of role is by “publishing” or distributing that work so that it is available for others. Whether publishing an electronic journal or book or supporting authors for traditional publishing, what is the role libraries could or should be taking? While many academic libraries now host student and faculty journals, what about monographs? Some academic libraries are now exploring how to support faculty interested in producing OA textbooks. A recent article in American Libraries (“Wanna write a good one? Library as ...

Conceptualizing Cultural Literacy As A Key Concept In Researching Caribbean Cultural Groups, Ardis Hanson Jun 2014

Conceptualizing Cultural Literacy As A Key Concept In Researching Caribbean Cultural Groups, Ardis Hanson

Ardis Hanson

There is an emphasis on evidence-based and evidence-informed practice in the social and behavioral sciences. Students in those fields are expected to achieve certain competencies that demonstrate their ability to conduct research. However, students at the undergraduate and graduate levels are often at a loss as to how to optimize their search strategies across multiple, online databases. This is particularly true when researching minority or ‘hidden’ populations. Using a shared, situated interactional approach, I offer a ‘lessons learned’ case study to guide graduate students through the information-seeking process across cultural groups. I describe the differences in faculty and librarians’ perceptions ...

Powerpoint Slides For Big Data, Big Libraries, Big Problems?: The 2014 Libtech Anti-Talk?, Nathan A. Rinne Mr.

Nathan A Rinne Mr.

The desire to create automatons is a familiar theme in human history, and during the age of the Enlightenment mechanical automatons became not only an “emblem of the cosmos”, but a symbol of man’s confidence that he would unlock nature’s greatest mysteries and fully harness her power. And yet only a century later, automatons had begun to represent human repression and servitude, a theme later picked up by writers of science fiction. Man’s confidence undeterred, the endgame of the modern scientific and technological mindset, or MSTM, seems to be increasingly coming into view with the rise of ...

Inverting The Corporate Pyramid (Lessons From An Infantryman), Robert Clements

Robert Clements

This presentation outlines a different Mental Model of organizational structures and upends the Corporate Pyramid and balances it on it point. This inverted model places the leaders at the bottom of the pyramid and defines loose roles for each successive layer. The top most layer represents the interface of the organization to its external enviroment. Unlike traditional top down structures, this model seeks to identify that poor implementation of various aspects of job performance can send fault lines up through the organization. The foundational managements perspective is that they support the work force above it and that all levels must ...
