CLA Preconference: Relationship-building and Community Engagement [$] Affiliate Event, Preconference/Institute, Ticketed event Moscone Convention Center
2010 (W)
Description :

Survival of the public library is about relevance, and the key to relevance is engagement. That’s our future. Engagement, with customers, community, stakeholders, partners, and staff, is about people being in relationships. Public libraries need to approach relationships with the confidence that we have something of value to offer, and clarity about what we hope to gain from others that will move our strategic initiatives forward. In this session we’ll explore the various meanings of community engagement, talk about staff engagement, and discuss what it takes to build relationships in both our outward and inward worlds. We’ll hear about strategies for building productive relationships with staff, communities, partners, and stakeholders. We’ll talk about how to rightsize our relationships - recognizing there should be a correlation between the level of effort we put into nurturing relationships and the value we both offer and receive. We’ll discuss how to seek out strategic relationships that align to organizational priorities, and practice having conversations to build relationships in which you might have something to teach, want to learn, or hope to collaborate. Please show up ready to be engaged, interactive, and appreciative of all that is offered, you contribute, and acquire in this daylong session. Our guest speakers are Susan Hildreth, Gary Wasdin, Luis Herrera, and Jan Sanders. Cheryl Gould and Sam McBane Mulford will facilitate the workshop.

Coding for Efficiencies in Cataloging and Metadata: Practical Applications of XML, XSLT, XQuery, and PyMarc for Library Data [$] Preconference/Institute, Ticketed event Moscone Convention Center
2001 (W)
Description :

This full-day workshop provides concrete examples and hands-on exercises for practical applications of coding with library data. Session topics include XML and XSLT for streamlining and scaling up metadata and cataloging workflows; RDF/XML for serializing MODS-RDF and BIBFRAME; XQuery for extracting, manipulating, and constructing library metadata; and PyMARC for accessing and manipulating MARC records. Attendees are encouraged to bring a computer with XML-aware and Python software as well as questions for group discussion.

The key audience for this preconference is cataloging and metadata librarians or paraprofessionals and information science students having some familiarity with metadata creation and/or descriptive cataloging practices, and at least one or two formats such as MARC, Dublin Core, MODS, METS, RDF. This preconference may also be useful for digital scholarship librarians and library technology staff. Sessions are oriented towards those who have some familiarity with the technologies covered however it is not required.

To get the most out of the presenters' illustrations, examples, and hands-on exercises we recommend participants pre-install XML-aware, Python, and MarcEdit software on their computers prior to arrival. Current versions of Chrome, Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, and Opera are able to display XML files and will largely suffice for the first session, but in order to follow-along with the later examples and hands-on exercises participants will need to be able to do more than just view XML. We recommend installing fully-featured XML editing tools such as oXygen XML Editor (Syncro Soft), XML Spy XML Editor (Altova), Stylus Studio XML Editor or XML-compatible text editors such as Brackets, Notepad++ for Windows, and GNU Emacs as well as MarcEdit and the Python 3.4.1 shell. Instructions on installing these programs will be provided on the ALCTS Workflow Efficiency Interest Group ALA Connect page prior to the preconference.
