Balancing Our Brains: Apps For Avoiding Bandwidth Overload, Geraldine R. Kalim, Rachel S. Evans

Articles, Chapters and Online Publications

Amidst the rush and worry many librarians around the world felt as we scrambled earlier this year to set up physical spaces to work from home, at the University of Georgia Law Library we were fortunate to have several task boards, project management spaces, and apps for communication already in motion. Individuals and small teams had been using various platforms for years to collaborate more effectively and track progress on longterm objectives, all while maintaining business as usual. In this article we put our recent and personal experiences to use, giving context for why and how four tools can be ...

Intentional Professional Development In Changing Times, Maggie Kiel-Morse 2020 Maurer School of Law - Indiana University

Intentional Professional Development In Changing Times, Maggie Kiel-Morse

Articles by Maurer Faculty

I recently participated in the AALL Leadership Academy, held virtually on August 6, 7, and 14. The Leadership Academy has a reputation for fostering core leadership skills, and enhancing key tools and strategies for effective leadership, while also providing excellent networking opportunities for participants. I was excited and grateful to be accepted to participate, and to receive a grant from ALL-SIS. When the change to a virtual format was announced, I had some reservations about continuing to participate. Ultimately, I decided that whatever the format, the opportunities for professional growth offered by the Leadership Academy were too good to pass ...

How Intelligent Ci Instruction Gives Law Students A Competitive Edge, Heather Simmons, Beau Steenken, Liz Whittington, Joshua Pluta

Presentations

"Competitive intelligence" (CI) is a term that gets bandied about across many sectors, but how exactly do law firms use it to further their business? Academics are aware of CI as a concept, but teaching students how to conduct competitive intelligence requires a more nuanced understanding of how it is actually used. In a discussion moderated by a newer academic librarian who will be teaching competitive intelligence for the first time, a firm librarian will share insights into how competitive intelligence can and should be used, and an academic librarian who regularly teaches competitive intelligence will offer tips on how ...

Data, Stats, Go: Navigating The Intersections Of Cataloging, E-Resource, And Web Analytics Reporting, Rachel S. Evans, Wendy Moore, Jessica Pasquale, Andre Davison

Presentations

Do you trudge through gathering statistics at fiscal or calendar year-end? Do you wonder why you track certain things, thinking many seem outdated or irrelevant? Many places seem to keep counting certain statistics because "that's what they've always done." For e-resources, how do you integrate those with physical counts and reconcile the variations (updated e-resources versus re-cataloged physical items)? What about repository downloads and other web traffic? The quantity of stats that libraries track is staggering and keeps growing. This program will encourage attendees to stop and evaluate what and why they're gathering data and help identify ...
