CANCELLED From Recruiting to Mentoring: Transformative (AASL ESLS) Discussion/Interest group Marriott Marquis San Francisco
Yerba Buena Salon 13-15
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.

Description :

Three librarians in the first five years of their careers will discuss how their cataloging coursework did (or did not) help prepare them for their cataloging duties in their current professional roles. We will hear our three presenters focus on their respective cataloging courses and what they learned from them, what kind of experience they have had either before or after library school, and what kind of additional educational or experience-centered background they feel could have been useful to them, if any.

Our speakers:

* Sarah Hovde, Cataloger & BIBCO Liaison, Folger Shakespeare Library

* Tim Kiser, Special Materials Catalog Librarian, Michigan State University Libraries

* Patricia Guardiola, Reference and Instruction Librarian, Yale University

Resource Discovery in the Age of Wikipedia Affiliate Event, Exhibitor session Moscone Convention Center
3010 (W)
Description :

Wikipedia is viewed 8000 times each second. The 8th largest referrer to DOIs, Wikipedia has become a ubiquitous starting point for discovery. Thus, knowledge professionals have begun to focus on reaching readers on Wikipedia, where they already are. The Wikipedia Library facilitates gaining access to research for Wikipedia's thousands of editors through partnerships with JSTOR, Elsevier, and dozens of publishers. Now we need research libraries, with their experience curating access, to complete the circle of research and dissemination. The goal is to make library collections more visible online and drive traffic from Wikipedia back to full-texts and reference experts.
