How Makerspaces and DIY Science Can Promote STEM Learning at Every Age Author Event, Exhibitor session Moscone Convention Center
124 (N)
Description :

Long before atom-smashers and deep-space probes, there were no separate classes of people labeled scientists or inventors. Fundamental breakthroughs in science and technology were made by ordinary people who felt a passion to explore, build, and create with the tools at hand. Today, the economic importance of STEM is greater than ever, and devices like 3D printers and rich sources of scientific understanding online can empower individuals to new success—if they are properly motivated to engage with STEM subjects and if they have access to those resources. The role that libraries can play in making those connections has therefore never been more crucial.

John Rennie, editorial director of MHE’s AccessScience, will lead this panel of Makerspace innovators and leading librarians. They will discuss the best practices for libraries that want to encourage hands-on exploration and curiosity-driven learning of STEM subjects, with case studies from successful programs across a wide range of ages. They will also look at exciting new information resources that can help libraries and their users develop the knowledge and skills to participate effectively in a Maker-friendly world.

Conversation Starter: The Library-Museum Connection Other Moscone Convention Center
130 (N)
Description :

Libraries and Museums have so much in common! We’re both cultural institutions that promote lifetime learning, encourage civic engagement, and connect people to ideas. So why not learn from each other?

Join Librarians Rebecca Hopman of the The Rakow Research Library at the Corning Museum of Glass, Kara West of the San Diego Public Library, and Erinn Paige of New Canaan Library for an exciting look at how each of these places—a research library, a large urban library, and a small municipal library—are working to bridge the gap between museum and library service to support the creative life of their communities.

We’ll share examples of successful spaces, partnerships, and programs from each of these libraries that are practical and scalable, so you can transform your library into an incubator for the arts!

Library of the Future – Learning with the Participatory Library at Cedar Rapids Public Library Program Moscone Convention Center
2009 (W)
Description :

In June 2008 a destructive flood swept through the city of Cedar Rapids, Iowa. In the wake of the flood, a visionary group realized that the silver lining to the story was the opportunity to radically re-imagine the role a library could play in the life of the community. The focus was on creating a space that, in the words of the library director, would be “more like an Apple Store than the DMV.” The new Cedar Rapids Public Library opened in August of 2013 and the impact of that design decision has been astonishing. Before the flood, the library saw 11,000 annual visitors come through the library for meetings and special events. In contrast, during the first year of operation, the new library hosted 102,000 visitors and is on track to host 150,000 people in 2015. This panel discussion between library staff and the design team from OPN Architects will address the philosophy that drove the development of the new library, the design choices that were made and take a candid look at the results.

Role of the Professional in Technical Services Interest Group Discussion/Interest group Moscone Convention Center

Description :

Please join the Role of the Professional Librarian in Technical Services Interest Group as we explore the challenges and opportunities of advancing to a higher administrative level in academic libraries. Have you ever wondered if you should make this move? Have you considered what it would take to reach that higher level? How can you be sure you’re on the right path? Three recently appointed administrators will discuss their move from department head to upper library administration. They will share the lessons learned from the search process and how they handled the inevitable transition issues. The panelists represent three viewpoints: Pixey Mosley made the move as an internal candidate; Paula Sullenger spent many years at one institution before becoming an administrator elsewhere, and Carmelita Pickett rose in responsibility at multiple institutions. The panelists will have advice and encouragement for your situation.

WO BO Session III - OITP - Fast, Fair, Competitive, Neutral Networks for Information Equity Program Moscone Convention Center
2003 (W)
Description :

As merger deals and network neutrality legal challenges continue to flare, American’s freedom of speech and right to know are threatened by unavailable, unaffordable or otherwise unequal access to the internet. Librarians have an essential role in preserving and advancing information equity in the networked world. Join advocates and regulators from California’s front lines of this battle for a crash course in the internet issues that increasingly determine our nation’s access to information and creation.

Chris Witteman is a Senior Staff Counsel with the California Public Utilities Commission who has written extensively about information freedom and information equity. He will provide an introductory tour of some of the hot issues where digital content meets the “wires,” including net neutrality; recent merger activity; municipal broadband; interconnection between carriers and content providers; privacy and the E-Rate program.

Monica Schultz is Chair of the ALA Office for Information Technology Policy Telecommunications Subcommittee and IT Director for the Peninsula Library System. She has been a leader in piloting gigabit connectivity and advocating for high-capacity broadband for California libraries. She will share an update on her work with gigabit networks and lessons for the future of innovative and broadband-enabled library services.

ALA OITP Deputy Director Larra Clark will moderate.
