Conversation Starter: Subversive tweets and likes: Social media = new government information? Other Moscone Convention Center
130 (N)
Description :

Traditional government information is considered official; that is, it is created under the approval of government agencies. Yet as Snowden’s release of NSA documents and Weibo.com in China have demonstrated, official or unofficial government information (i.e. not approved for public release) can be quickly discussed and analyzed via social media platforms. Hence librarians need to be versed in new forms of government information, and consider them as sources to provide to users. Let’s discuss social media communication around unofficial government information and strategies that librarians can use to incorporate it into instruction.

Digital Humanities Interest Group Meeting Discussion/Interest group Hilton San Francisco Union Square
Plaza A
Description :

The meeting will feature two groups of speakers followed by a 15 minute business meeting.

Our first group of speakers will be Arianne Hartsell-Gundy (Head of the Humanities Section & Librarian for Literature and Theater Studies, Duke University) Laura Braunstein (Digital Humanities and English Librarian, Dartmouth College), and Liorah Golomb (Associate Professor and Humanities Librarian, University of Oklahoma). Our second speaker is Justin Schell (CLIR Postdoctoral Fellow, Digital Arts Sciences + Humanities, University of Minnesota).

Arianne Hartsell-Gundy, Laura Braunstein, and Liorah Golomb are co-editors of the recently published book, Digital Humanities in the Library: Challenges and Opportunities for Subject Specialists. In their talk, “DH in the Library: What’s Missing, What’s Next?,” the three will discuss the book, describe additional case studies and projects, and facilitate a discussion on further collaborations among DH communities of practice.

Justin Schell will discuss the foundation and continued work of Digital Arts Sciences + Humanities, or DASH, at the University of Minnesota Libraries. DASH is a cross-disciplinary project from the University of Minnesota Libraries organized around emerging digital tools and methodologies for scholarly, pedagogical, and artistic projects. Through projects ranging across research projects, the classroom, and exploratory projects internal to the Libraries, Justin will articulate how DASH attempts to provide a low-barrier to these emerging digital tools and methodologies and connect often disparate communities of practice, both within and across the disciplines.

The last 15 minutes will be used for the business meeting.

From Recruiting to Mentoring: Transformative Practices in School Librarian Preparation Discussion/Interest group Hotel Nikko
Peninsula
Description :

School library staffing around the country currently faces a wide range of challenges, from systems facing a shortage of credentialed candidates to other systems where school library positions have been eliminated. Additionally, licensure requirements vary widely from state to state and impact university preparation and school hiring decisions. As a result, school libraries may be left unstaffed or staffed by paraprofessionals or others unprepared for the challenges facing twenty-first century school libraries. How do we prepare new “leaders to transform teaching and learning” in this context? How and where should we be recruiting these leaders? These are issues facing school library supervisors and university preparation programs, yet they have significant implications for all K-12 education stakeholders concerned with preparing students who are workplace and college ready. Faced with these challenges, school systems and universities are exploring innovative paths to the recruitment, preparation and support of school library staff. In this session a panel of district library supervisors, state leaders, and library school faculty will share perspectives on the issue, strategies to identify and prepare library candidates, and highlight innovative efforts to prepare a new generation of school librarians who will be leaders in the transformation of teaching and learning.

"But We're Neutral!" And Other Librarian Fictions Confronted by #critlib Program Moscone Convention Center
2016 (W)
Description :

Twitter chats are an opportunity for synchronous bursts of conversation on current topics. We started the #critlib chat to build a conversation about issues of critical pedagogy in academic libraries, but topics have grown to include library assessment, gender in RDA, and library responses to social justice actions in our communities. Publicly exploring our assumptions about our profession is sometimes uncomfortable, sometimes fiery, and always an opportunity for growth and action. This panel presentation and discussion will examine how we talk--and don't talk--about critical issues surrounding the profession and our identity within it.
