Hpl Cares: Leading By Taking Action, Courtney Gill 2018 Hillsboro Public Library

Hpl Cares: Leading By Taking Action, Courtney Gill

OLA Quarterly

Like many Oregon cities, Hillsboro is changing at a fast pace. Rapid growth has created many challenges for the City’s most vulnerable community members. Two top challenges include housing instability and food insecurity. While the library serves as a vital community hub, the Hillsboro Public Library (HPL) continuously seeks to make a greater impact. The Hillsboro Public Library Leadership Team (LLT) approved the formation of the staff-led HPL Cares team. HPL Cares consists of six big-hearted library staff members who took the idea of a library-sponsored community service group and developed a community-focused inspiration team.

The HPL Cares team ...


Followership, Or Leading Up In Libraries In Brief, Dawn Lowe-Wincentsen 2018 Oregon Institute of Technology

Followership, Or Leading Up In Libraries In Brief, Dawn Lowe-Wincentsen

OLA Quarterly

In the 2008 text, The Art of Followership, Chaleff, Riggio, and Lippman-Blumen lay out five traits of effective followers: courage to assume responsibility, courage to serve, courage to challenge, courage to participate, and courage to take moral action. In his 2015 text, Followership: What It Takes to Lead, James Schindler lists four attributes that successful followership is built on: belief in the mission, willingness to work toward the good of the whole, loyalty, and unity of focus. Authenticity also plays a part in both leadership and followership. As a follower, being authentic can help a person be intentional and help ...

Overcoming Isolation As A Form Of Leadership, Julie Gaida 2018 Pacific University

Overcoming Isolation As A Form Of Leadership, Julie Gaida

OLA Quarterly

Working in the technical services department of a small academic library is a bit of an isolation double-whammy: not only are you more removed from the patrons you serve than are your public-facing counterparts, you may also be a department of one and solely responsible for discharging a highly specialized set of duties. This has been the case for me since 2015 when I moved to Oregon after accepting the position of Acquisitions Specialist at Pacific University, a small, private, liberal arts college in Forest Grove. I am primarily responsible for tracking the library’s resource funds; overseeing the ordering ...


Liola: The Long And Winding Road, Jane Corry, Elaine G. Hirsch 2018 Oregon Library Association

Liola: The Long And Winding Road, Jane Corry, Elaine G. Hirsch

OLA Quarterly

This article features a conversation between Jane Corry and Elaine Hirsch about the history and goals of the inaugural Leadership Institute of the Oregon Library Association (LIOLA). Here is an excerpt:

Elaine: In 2014, OLA’s president Penny Hummel created a Leadership Task Force to research options to provide the association’s membership with leadership training opportunities. This is when Jane and I first started working together on leadership initiatives. After breaking ties with Pacific Northwest Library Association (PNLA) in 2010, it became more challenging for OLA members to attend the PNLA Leadership Institute. I was among the Oregon applicants ...


Stepping Up: Applying Situational Leadership Concepts To Public Library Work With Teens, Mark Richardson 2018 Cedar Mill & Bethany Community Libraries

Stepping Up: Applying Situational Leadership Concepts To Public Library Work With Teens, Mark Richardson

OLA Quarterly

Working with teens is fun, nerve-wracking, and never dull. After building and growing a thriving teen council at our library for nearly ten years, I’ve spent some time thinking about what I want teens to get out of their experience at the library. One of the big things that they need and want is to develop leadership skills. Every application for college or scholarships seems to ask how they are demonstrating leadership, so I decided several years ago that I would build in opportunities for them to develop these skills on the council. This has taken the form of ...

Lots Of Ways To Be A Leader, 2018 Pacific University

Lots Of Ways To Be A Leader

OLA Quarterly

In this issue, you’ll find more stories of librarians who, by leading from their individual strengths, have made their libraries, communities, and the Oregon library community better places to be. Jane Corry and Elaine Hirsch kick off this issue with a discussion of the planning and coordination that went into the first LIOLA, and how their own strengths—as defined by the Gallup StrengthsFinder assessment around which the LIOLA curriculum was based—influenced and guided that process. Hillsboro’s Courtney Gill writes about how a collaborative, compassion-driven leadership model, combined with strategic outreach partnerships, produced the HPL Cares series ...


Building The Ladder: Developing Leadership Skills Without The Title, Melissa Little 2018 Beaverton City Library

Building The Ladder: Developing Leadership Skills Without The Title, Melissa Little

OLA Quarterly

The leap to library leadership can be difficult if you have no experience in supervision. While larger library systems may have a deep structure that allows employees to start on step one of the ladder and progress one rung at a time to that director position, most of us in Oregon work for smaller libraries where there are few or no successive steps between circulation clerk and director. In these types of organizations, how does someone gain the experience necessary to make one a viable candidate for the job? Because of the diversity of functions from library to library and ...

Volume 24 Issue 2 Introduction, Jane Scheppke

OLA Quarterly

Lots of Ways to Be a Leader Or: I Am a Library Leader, and So Can You!

People tend to have a fixed mindset about who “librarians” are and how library staff should act, represent their profession, and lead. When I say “people,” I am envisioning every public official, captain of industry and Lyft driver who has ever asked me how many people I shush in a day, and then I am envisioning a rain of cartoon anvils. To be fair, I’m also thinking of a younger version of myself, picking out the dowdiest clothes in my wardrobe for ...


Digital Archives In The Discovery Layer: A Successful Collaboration Between Archivists And Technical Services Librarians, Christina A. Beis, Kayla Harris, Stephanie Shreffler 2018 University of Dayton

Digital Archives In The Discovery Layer: A Successful Collaboration Between Archivists And Technical Services Librarians, Christina A. Beis, Kayla Harris, Stephanie Shreffler

Roesch Library Faculty Presentations

Effective collaboration between archivists and technical services librarians can increase the discoverability of special collection materials. In this panel presentation, archivists and a technical services librarian from a medium-sized institution discussed archival tools available to preserve collections of digital content and how to make the collections available universitywide.

Working together, the panelists had created a plan to integrate these collections into the discovery layer so that metadata was indexed on a single user-friendly platform. After advertising the collections, they collected usage statistics to determine impact.

Attendees had the opportunity to discuss their own digital archive collections with others and to ...


Developing A Social Justice Mindset In Technical Services, Ione T. Damasco 2018 University of Dayton

Developing A Social Justice Mindset In Technical Services, Ione T. Damasco

Roesch Library Faculty Presentations

These days, the words "equity," "diversity," and "inclusion" are used throughout libraries. But what do people mean when they use these words? And how do these words manifest in library technical services work? In this talk, participants explored how they can give these words real power when they frame them within a social justice mindset. The program started with an understanding of who participants are as individuals and how they fit into larger systems and structures of societal oppression. They they explored together how their work in technical services can contribute to the dismantling of those systems to ensure a ...

Linked Data, Bibframe And Rda Walk Into A Bar..., Amy B. Parsons 2018 Columbus State University

Linked Data, Bibframe And Rda Walk Into A Bar..., Amy B. Parsons

Faculty Bibliography

This poster illustrates basic introduction and concepts of linked data and how it relates to RDA and Bibframe. Currently catalogers in libraries are struggling with learning these new concepts and keeping up with our traditional cataloging knowledge and workflows. Linked data brings us a step closer to global bibliographic control. The MARC record is not going away any time soon but catalogers should be aware of these concepts and models as they are being developed for our workflows in the future.

Closing The Gap? Curating Bepress Metadata For Share, Emily Stenberg, Lisa Palmer, Joanne Paterson, Wendy Robertson

Joanne Paterson

The goal of the SHARE initiative, a partnership between the Association of Research Libraries (ARL) and the Center for Open Science (COS), is to build a “free, open, data set about research and scholarly activities across their life cycle.” As of August 2017, 161 repositories and publishers have made metadata available to SHARE for harvesting, and the aggregated data set is available for searching. Many metadata providers are institutional repositories utilizing the bepress Digital Commons platform whose metadata is harvested through the OAI-PMH (Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting) protocol for repository interoperability. A group of Digital Commons repository ...
