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.

NISO/BISG 9th Annual Forum: The Changing Standards Landscape Access or Ownership: Evolving Business Models and Your Institution Exhibitor session, Program Moscone Convention Center
3012 (W)
Description :

Standards are critically important elements that can make any business process more efficient. The traditional print subscription services model, the process of handling standing book orders by libraries, and even the process of buying, selling, and consuming e-books through a variety of platforms all require standardized business processes to efficiently get content from publishers through vendors to libraries and ultimately to patrons.

As our community adapts to changing paradigms regarding service and ownership models specific to digital publishing, both the library and publishing communities need to consider the implications of these changes. Print content distribution was centered on a sales model, where the transfer of ownership of a physical object was a core element of the transaction; this is often not the case with digital assets. Generally, content is licensed and access is limited; by rights, by term, or by community served. The implications of this shift are quite broad both for content providers as well as libraries. What are the business practices, roles and responsibilities, on both sides of the new digital exchange that all parties need to be aware of and incorporate to ensure efficient information exchange?
