Chart Your Course, Kenya S. Flash, Caroline Zeglen, Stephanie Miranda 2018 University of Tennessee - Knoxville

Chart Your Course, Kenya S. Flash, Caroline Zeglen, Stephanie Miranda

Faculty: Other Publications and Presentations -- UT Libraries

Library instruction is most effective when thoughtfully developed with faculty and integrated in a course. But how do you determine which faculty partnerships will have the most impact? In this poster, we discuss the process of curriculum mapping in an agriculture program, how it reveals new opportunities for library instruction, and pitfalls to avoid when charting your course. In fall 2016, librarians at the University of Tennessee Hodges Library and Pendergrass Agriculture and Veterinary Medicine Library developed learning outcomes for library instruction and services using feedback from staff and the ACRL Framework for Information Literacy. We mapped or coded the ...

Contemplative Pedagogy: Building Resilience In Academic Libraries:, Madeleine K. Charney, Jenny Colvin

Madeleine K. Charney

This paper addresses the emerging movement of contemplative pedagogy in higher education with an emphasis on academic librarianship.

Examples of librarians’ relevant professional development activities are also included. Library spaces offering mindfulness opportunities for students are explored and a contemplative-oriented, campus-wide collaboration centered on climate disruption is featured.  Selected Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations 2030 Agenda are touched on, demonstrating how contemplative approaches in academic libraries support well-being, justice, community ...

Safeguarding For The Future: Managing Born-Digital Collections In Museums, Kimberly Kruse

Seton Hall University Dissertations and Theses (ETDs)

Over the past few decades, advancements in technology have changed society entirely. Every bit of information about world news, popular culture, and art is just a tap of a touchscreen away. So many aspects of the contemporary world have become digitized so that it was only a matter of time before museums would have to face the issue of born-digital media in their collections. From videos to web-based art, museums have to tackle how to save this new form of cultural heritage. Museums have to do so now before it gets lost forever. The challenge of born-digital objects lies in ...

Get To Know Your Librarian: How A Simple Orientation Program Helped Alleviate Library Anxiety, Rachael Muszkiewicz 2017 Valparaiso University

Get To Know Your Librarian: How A Simple Orientation Program Helped Alleviate Library Anxiety, Rachael Muszkiewicz

Rachael Muszkiewicz

Library orientations do their part to familiarize students with information literacy, and how the library fits within university life.  But what if an orientation could give a student a strong introduction to their academic librarians?  Research in academic libraries has noted that library anxiety remains a continual problem among current students.  Valparaiso University librarians created the Get to Know Your Librarian program, which sought to make librarians accessible.  Using humor and casualness, incoming students were “introduced” to librarians through a series of fun facts.  This simple program, was successful in helping alleviate incoming students’ library anxiety before their first semester.

Methods: In March of 2015, three librarians found themselves in a situation of serendipitous professional development: one was seeking to provide a new method of mentorship, and two more were working on an event, hoping to broadcast ...
