Getting Into The Workflow: Graduate Support Workshops, Steven Baumgart, Rebecca Payne, Anne E. Rauh, Lisa Saywell

Anne Rauh

How can librarians engage with graduate student education and research? Often, graduate student orientations of academic departments include only introductory information about the library and are discipline-focused. To address a need for better library support for graduate students increasingly pursuing interdisciplinary research and study, the University of Wisconsin-Madison Libraries initiated a series of workshops designed to integrate into the workflow of graduate students. Presenters will discuss how the program evolved from a one-library pilot program into a coordinated series of workshops across multiple campus libraries. Details about workshop topics, structure, design, and promotion and series feedback and next steps will ...

Librarians face many challenges when dealing with issues of privacy within the mediated space of social networking sites.

Five recommendations assist librarians in expanding their traditional commitment to privacy into the realm of social networking sites.

Application Of Icts In Nigerian Secondary Schools, Esharenana E. Adomi, Emperor Kpangban 2010 Delta State University, Nigeria

Application Of Icts In Nigerian Secondary Schools, Esharenana E. Adomi, Emperor Kpangban

Library Philosophy and Practice (e-journal)

This paper examines ICT applications in Nigerian secondary schools. It reveals that ICTs should be adopted in Nigerian schools to improve the educational system and help the students receive a solid education, enabling them to live successfully. Though some efforts have been made to ensure the integration of ICTs in the system, the level of ICT adoption and use is low, due to poor policy/project implementation strategies, and limited/poor information infrastructure. Recommendations for improvement of ICT applications are set forth.

Librarianship In The 21st Century: Lessons In Leadership, Rob Morrison, Jack Fritts

Faculty Publications

Many of the challenges librarians face in the 21st century have existed for years and reflect the nature of higher education and society in the United States. One issue the presenters have observed is that librarians, like many educators, react to rapidly changing systems, pressures, economics, and technologies by “balancing” workloads and budgets and not by deeply reflecting on how to change strategies in order to integrate themselves more fully into academic curricula, prove the library’s value to administrators, and develop meaningful services and resources.

In order to thrive and survive, librarians must be proactive at their institutions in ...
