Subject: [lita-l] LITA web course: Getting Started with GIS

 

There is still time to register for the LITA web course "Getting Started
with GIS." This asynchronous, self-paced course beings Monday, February
11 and concludes on March 4. 

 

The course will consist of a combination of recorded lectures,
demonstrations, and hands-on tutorials. Created specifically for library
staff, this course will provide students with an introduction to the
both online and desktop GIS currently being used by library
administrators, librarians, library support staff and library users. 


Participants will learn firsthand how to create online maps; how to
properly use maps in library webpages; how to embed GIS technology into
library projects (and the benefits of it!); and how to enjoy GIS and
mapping technologies in personal endeavors.  Students will be exposed to
many online resources that are currently being used by public, academic
and special libraries across North America.  No previous mapping or GIS
experience is necessary.

 

Some of the online applications covered include:

*	Google Maps and Google Earth
*	ArcGIS.com
*	ArcGIS and free open source GIS software

For more information and registration, visit the LITA web site:

New Fast Track MLIS Offered by USC's School of Library and Information Science
Master of Library and Information Science

Fast Track MLIS is the newest program offered by the School of Library and Information Science (SLIS).  Beginning in spring of 2013, prospective students may apply for admission to the Fast Track Master of Library and Information Science at the University of South Carolina.  The program guarantees that the ALA-accredited MLIS can be completed within 18 months and will be available 100% online.

The need for information professionals is continually increasing across the United States. SLIS director, Dr. Samantha K. Hastings, and our expert faculty understand the significance of providing and managing information.  The Fast Track MLIS addresses the need by making it possible for students to become professionals in the field faster without comprising quality.  The program is being launched with the choice of three areas of focus:  cultural heritage institutions, information services, library services for children and youth.

"You are always welcome on our campus and we hope that you will visit us sometime," says Dr. Hastings.  "However, for these three areas of interest, you can complete your program in 18 months, from any location. We expect that you will use your MLIS degree to change the world, providing access to information for everyone."

This excellent and exciting opportunity to enter the dynamic field of library and information services is available now. The application process begins with the Graduate School's online application.  Application deadline for summer and fall 2013 is March 15, 2013.

Program information is at http://www.libsci.sc.edu/fasttrack/index.htm.  For more information contact SLIS' Student Services Office.

Jana Diesner receives XSEDE allocation award, Ford Foundation grant
Jana Diesner, assistant professor, has received a start-up allocation award<http://www.lis.illinois.edu/articles/2013/02/diesner-receives-xsede-allocation-award> from the Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE). This award provides Diesner and her co-PI Brent Fegley, a doctoral student in the Informatics program, with time on XSEDE's high-performance computing resources. For this project, the team uses natural language processing and machine learning techniques to develop an entity extraction technology that is particularly useful for applications in the social sciences and humanities.

Diesner is also principal investigator on a grant awarded by the Ford Foundation to develop, evaluate, and apply a computational solution for measuring the impact of social justice documentaries. Diesner was approached by Ford to help them understand the broader impact of such media productions. Diesner sees the project as a demonstration of the broad scope of research in GSLIS. "This project allows us to be part of a larger, current, real-world initiative, and to bring our advanced expertise in socio-technical data analytics to the table. I am thrilled to contribute to the Ford Foundation's mission to 'advance social justice worldwide' with our scientific work, and to 'work with visionaries on the frontlines of social change'" she said.

Doctoral Student News
Leetaru attends National Academies Keck Futures Initiative, Supercomputing conference
Doctoral student Kalev Leetaru was selected for the 2012 National Academies Keck Futures Initiative<http://www.keckfutures.org/conferences/index.html>, The Informed Brain in a Digital World, which "brings together more than 100 of the nation's best and brightest researchers from academic, industrial, and government laboratories to ask questions about-and to discover interdisciplinary connections between-important areas of cutting-edge research."  The charge to Leetaru's team was to "identify the ways in which the Internet positively and negatively impacts social behavior," exploring the interplay between the digital and physical worlds.

Leetaru also attended Supercomputing 2012 where he once again collaborated with SGI<http://www.sgi.com/> and the University of Illinois CyberInfrastructure and Geospatial Information (CIGI) Laboratory to debut the first-ever realtime combined population, tone, and geographic analysis of the live Twitter Decahose (10% of all tweets globally), creating a realtime map of global dreams and fears<http://www.sgi.com/go/twitter/>. Additionally, movies were created to show Hurricane Sandy<https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g3AqdIDYG0c> and the 2012 US presidential election<https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oVaBws-3BVs> as viewed through the eyes of Twitter.

School News
Center for Children's Books announces 2013 Gryphon Award winner
Island: A Story of the Galápagos, written and illustrated by Jason Chin, and published by Roaring Brook Press, is the winner of the 2013 Gryphon Award for Children's Literature. The Award, which includes a $1,000 prize, is given annually by the Center for Children's Books<http://ccb.lis.illinois.edu> (CCB). This year's committee was chaired by Deborah Stevenson, director of the CCB, and Kate Quealy-Gainer, assistant editor of the Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books<http://bccb.lis.illinois.edu>. The prize is awarded to the author of an outstanding English language work of fiction or nonfiction for which the primary audience is children in kindergarten through fourth grade, and which best exemplifies those qualities that successfully bridge the gap in difficulty between books for reading aloud to children and books for practiced readers.

Two Gryphon Honors also were named: Little Dog Lost (Nancy Paulsen Books), written and illustrated by Monica Carnesi, and Bink and Gollie: Two for One (Candlewick Press), written by Kate DiCamillo and Alison McGhee and illustrated by Tony Fucile.

Emporia State University's School of Library and Information Management seeks two tenure-track
faculty members at assistant, associate or full professor rank to teach in its ALA-accredited MLS
program. The positions are for a nine-month contract with an option for summer teaching and include
generous health insurance, retirement benefits and funding for professional development, conferences,
and seminars. Screening will begin November 13, 2012 and continue until the positions are filled.

The successful candidates will have a doctorate in library/information studies or a related discipline, or
ABD with an anticipated Spring 2013 graduation date, and recent teaching and/or research expertise in
at least one of the following areas: information technology, social media, database design, and public or
special libraries. Other desired qualifications are experience with a course management program, such
as Blackboard, and commitment to service. Individuals who have experience working in public,
academic, government, or special libraries are especially encouraged to apply.

All SLIM faculty are expected to teach at least two courses in the core curriculum: Ll801 Foundations of
Library and Information Science, Ll802 Foundations of Service, Ll804 Organization of Information, Ll805
Leadership and Administration of Information Organizations, Ll810 Research in Library and Information
Science, Ll 813: Reference and User Services, Ll 815: Information Technology, Ll 855: Collection
Development and Management. Research or teaching experience in two of these areas is preferred.

New M.S. in Corporate Learning and Development at LIU Post: Career Options for Educators & Corporate Associates, Offered Largely Online

Educators seeking new career options and corporate associates aspiring to new roles within their organizations may benefit from a new master's degree in Corporate Learning and Development. This unique program is offered in an online and in-classroom format by LIU Post and will meet the growing need for professional skills development in corporations, non-profits and the public sector.

Organizations large and small invest in training their employees as a way to improve staff productivity and motivation, gain competitive advantage, or comply with professional and governmental regulations.  The volume of training continues to grow at a rapid rate, with much of the delivery moving online. Especially in demand are instructional designers who can also advise and consult with business leaders to reach the best solution to meet business priorities and fulfill goals.

"Instructional designers, trainers and professional skills developers are key to an organization's success, and the demand for them is growing," said Dr. Robert Hannafin, dean of the College of Education, Information and Technology at LIU Post and a former executive at PriceWaterhouseCoopers LLP. "This program also offers new career opportunities for teachers to transfer their classroom skills (i.e. listening, facilitating discussion, and managing difficult conversations), into the corporate setting."

The 30-credit master's degree is taught in a blended format - part online, part face-to-face - and can be completed in 11 months. Students will earn both the M.S. degree and a Professional Skills Certificate, credentials that will expand their professional horizons. The program begins with an intensive, two-week summer term at the LIU Post campus in Brookville, followed by online courses through the fall and spring semesters, and culminates with one more two-week intensive session at the university. Courses provide a broad base of knowledge in communication, instructional design, online teaching and learning, knowledge services, organizational behavior, and leadership development.

Graduates of this interdisciplinary program will gain the knowledge, competency and skills to be successful in organizations needing trainers, instructional designers, facilitators/coaches, and learning and professional skills consultants. The M.S. in Corporate Learning and Development is administered jointly by the LIU Post College of Education, Information and Technology and the LIU Post College of Management.

<p class="MsoNormal">The information below describes an interdisciplinary MS program being offered by Long Island University including professors from the Palmer School of Library and Information Science.&nbsp; Check it out:<o:p></o:p></p>
<p class="MsoNormal"><o:p>&nbsp;</o:p></p>
<p class="MsoNormal">New M.S. in Corporate Learning and Development at LIU Post: Career Options for Educators &amp; Corporate Associates, Offered Largely Online<o:p></o:p></p>
<p class="MsoNormal"><o:p>&nbsp;</o:p></p>
<p class="MsoNormal">Educators seeking new career options and corporate associates aspiring to new roles within their organizations may benefit from a new master&#8217;s degree in Corporate Learning and Development. This unique program is offered in an online and
 in-classroom format by LIU Post and will meet the growing need for professional skills development in corporations, non-profits and the public sector.<o:p></o:p></p>
<p class="MsoNormal"><o:p>&nbsp;</o:p></p>
<p class="MsoNormal">Organizations large and small invest in training their employees as a way to improve staff productivity and motivation, gain competitive advantage, or comply with professional and governmental regulations.&nbsp; The volume of training continues
 to grow at a rapid rate, with much of the delivery moving online. Especially in demand are instructional designers who can also advise and consult with business leaders to reach the best solution to meet business priorities and fulfill goals.<o:p></o:p></p>
<p class="MsoNormal"><o:p>&nbsp;</o:p></p>
<p class="MsoNormal">&#8220;Instructional designers, trainers and professional skills developers are key to an organization&#8217;s success, and the demand for them is growing,&#8221; said Dr. Robert Hannafin, dean of the College of Education, Information and Technology at LIU
 Post and a former executive at PriceWaterhouseCoopers LLP. &#8220;This program also offers new career opportunities for teachers to transfer their classroom skills (i.e. listening, facilitating discussion, and managing difficult conversations), into the corporate
 setting.&#8221;<o:p></o:p></p>
<p class="MsoNormal"><o:p>&nbsp;</o:p></p>
<p class="MsoNormal">The 30-credit master&#8217;s degree is taught in a blended format &#8211; part online, part face-to-face &#8211; and can be completed in 11 months. Students will earn both the M.S. degree and a Professional Skills Certificate, credentials that will expand
 their professional horizons. The program begins with an intensive, two-week summer term at the LIU Post campus in Brookville, followed by online courses through the fall and spring semesters, and culminates with one more two-week intensive session at the university.
 Courses provide a broad base of knowledge in communication, instructional design, online teaching and learning, knowledge services, organizational behavior, and leadership development.<o:p></o:p></p>
<p class="MsoNormal"><o:p>&nbsp;</o:p></p>
<p class="MsoNormal">Graduates of this interdisciplinary program will gain the knowledge, competency and skills to be successful in organizations needing trainers, instructional designers, facilitators/coaches, and learning and professional skills consultants.
 The M.S. in Corporate Learning and Development is administered jointly by the LIU Post College of Education, Information and Technology and the LIU Post College of Management. To learn more, visit

*Evidence Based Library and Information Practice (EBLIP)* is expanding and
restructuring.  *EBLIP* is looking for two additional Associate Editors to
join our Editorial Team.  One will be responsible for Articles and the
second will be responsible for Evidence Summaries.  Ideally candidates will
be in place by April 2013 and will serve a 3 year term.



The Associate Editor (Articles) will become one of two Associate Editors
(Articles) and will be responsible for:



   - Overseeing the complete editorial process for items submitted to the
   Articles section (this includes assignment of peer reviewers, monitoring
   the peer review process, communicating with authors and peer reviewers,
   making acceptance decisions, ensuring required changes to manuscripts are
   made, communicating with copyeditors and the production editor to ensure
   the final copy is as expected).
   - Communicating and consulting with the Editor-in-Chief on a regular
   basis.
   - Attending Editorial Team meetings, via Skype, on a monthly basis and
   participating in the overall governance of the journal.
   - Ensuring that all necessary deadlines are met.
   - Communicating with potential authors and responding to queries.

The Associate Editor (Evidence Summaries) will be responsible for:

   - Supervising a team of Evidence Summary writers.
   - Identifying published research articles for assignment to ES writers
   for appraisal and commentary.
   - Overseeing the complete editorial process for items selected for the
   Evidence Summary Section (this includes assignment of peer reviewers,
   monitoring the peer review process, communicating with ES writers and peer
   reviewers, making acceptance decisions, ensuring required changes to
   manuscripts are made, communicating with copyeditors and the production
   editor to ensure the final copy is as expected.
   - Communicating and consulting with the Editor-in-Chief on a regular
   basis.
   - Attending Editorial Team meetings, via Skype, on a monthly basis and
   participating in the overall governance of the journal.
   - Ensuring that all necessary deadlines are met.

The ideal candidates will be well-versed in evidence based practice and
research methods. These positions require dedicated time on a regular
basis, and it is therefore essential that interested persons ensure
available time to devote to this position prior to applying. It is
estimated that the workload is approximately 10-15 hours per month. Terms
of office are renewable once.



Interested persons should send a statement of interest, indicating the post
of interest, areas of strength they would bring to the role, and a brief
resume to Alison Brettle, Editor-in-Chief, at *[log in to unmask]* by
4 March 2013.



Specific queries about each role should be addressed to:



Alison Brettle ([log in to unmask]) for Associate Editor (Articles)
position

Lorie Kloda ([log in to unmask]) for Associate Editor (Evidence
Summaries) position



**Please note that *Evidence Based Library and Information Practice* is a
non-profit, open access journal and all positions are voluntary and unpaid.

   predeveloped checklist.
   - Check and edit the item metadata to ensure title, author and abstract
   correspond to manuscript.
   - Assist the Editor-in-Chief with calls for papers and calls for
   volunteers.
   - Contact potential authors, asking them to consider submission to the
   journal.
   - Assist with investigation and implementation of new projects related
   to the journal.

The ideal candidate will be an MLIS student interested in evidence based
practice and research methods and who has strong attention to detail. The
position requires dedicated time on a regular basis, and it is therefore
essential that interested persons ensure available time to devote to this
position prior to applying. It is estimated that the workload is
approximately 10 hours per month.



Interested persons should send a statement of interest, indicating the post
of interest, areas of strength they would bring to the role, and a brief
resume to Alison Brettle, Editor-in-Chief, at *[log in to unmask]* by
4 March 2013.



Specific queries about the role should be addressed to the outgoing Intern,
Michelle Dunaway, at [log in to unmask]

San Jose Gateway PhD Program Grad Aims to Advance Librarian/Faculty
Collaboration 

 

Tina Inzerilla's new title of Doctor of Philosophy became official in
January 2013, when she eagerly received notice that her doctoral
dissertation was approved. She is the latest student to complete the San
Jose Gateway PhD Program, a partnership between the San Jose State
University School of Library and Information Science (SJSU SLIS) and
Queensland University of Technology (QUT), one of Australia's top research
institutions.

 

A 2005 graduate of the SJSU School of Library and Information Science's
Master of Library and Information Science
<http://slisweb.sjsu.edu/programs/master-library-and-information-science-mli
s>  (MLIS) program, Inzerilla
<http://slisweb.sjsu.edu/programs/san-jose-gateway-phd-program/doctoral-stud
ent-profiles/tina-inzerilla>  works as an instructional and reference
librarian at Las Positas College, a community college in Livermore, Calif. 

 

Inzerilla said her research for her dissertation, titled "Community College
Faculty's Teaching Social Networks and their Implications for Librarians,"
used both social network analysis and "semi-structured" interviews.

 

"My thesis was a step forward in advancing librarians in their efforts to
collaborate with faculty," she said. "The research discovered the
influencers on faculty's teaching social networks, the benefits and
challenges of collaboration, and provided insights into ways librarians may
be a more integral part of faculty's teaching social networks."

 

Inzerilla's future plans include publishing articles and possibly a book
based on her dissertation.

 

Dr. David Loertscher
<http://slisweb.sjsu.edu/programs/san-jose-gateway-phd-program/prospective-p
hd-students/research/dr-david-loertscher>  served as her San Jose State
University faculty supervisor for her doctoral work.

 

Inzerilla is the fourth person to earn a doctorate through the San Jose
Gateway PhD Program
<http://slisweb.sjsu.edu/programs/san-jose-gateway-phd-program> , which
admitted its first students in 2008. The first three students
<http://slisweb.sjsu.edu/about-slis/news/detail/new-san-jos%C3%A9-gateway-ph
d-program-alum-pursue-careers-academia>  graduated from the program in 2012.


 

Using a distance education model, the program serves students who work part
time or full time while earning their PhD degrees. They receive guidance and
one-on-one mentoring from both SJSU SLIS and QUT faculty.

 

Applications for admission in Fall 2013 are currently being accepted. The
first application deadline
<http://slisweb.sjsu.edu/programs/san-jose-gateway-phd-program/how-to-apply>
is March 22, 2013.

Prof. Anthony Cocciolo was the recipient of the Pratt-Severn Faculty
Innovation Award 2013.  He is the first Pratt SILS faculty member to win
this award.

Established in 1996, the $1,000 cash award (sponsored by Association of
Library and Information Science Educators and by Pratt Institute School of
Information and Library Science) is designed to identify innovation by
full-time faculty members, or a group of full-time faculty members, in
incorporating evolving information technologies in the curricula of
accredited masters degree programs in library and information studies.  The
award is named after David Severn, a 1968 Pratt SILS alumnus.  Anthony is

SESSION S : 
Alternative Event -- Values Interventions: Ethics Scholarship in Action (#CNFAE3) 
Time: Wednesday, 13/Feb/2013: 1:30pm - 3:00pm 
Session Chair: Michael Zimmer , University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Location: Pecos I 

Session Abstract 
The Internet has permeated the economic, political, cultural and social domains of global society and transformed the way in which we present and transmit knowledge. The infrastructure underlying the Internet continues to evolve, with ramifications for not only the technical protocols that govern the way the Internet functions, but also implications for social, economic, and legal issues. Internet protocols affect debates about intellectual property, privacy, security, and information access. What values (e.g. privacy, trust, security, equity, transparency, etc.) are embedded in our current Internet architecture, and what will be considered in the design of future Internet architectures? This panel describes an ongoing project to put ethics scholarship in action: a values intervention into the design of future Internet architectures. Panelists from the NSF-funded Future Internet Architecture Values in Design Council will speak about the effort to introduce social and ethical discussion into technical design practice, and the methods and challenges of such values interventions.

POSTER PRESENTATIONS: 

International Comparative Study Analyzing Knowledge Organization Research Topics in Four Countries - Brazil, South Korea, Spain and United States 
Jihee Beak1, Jeanette Glover1, Daniel Martínez-Ávila2, Suellen Oliveira Milani3 
1University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, United States of America; 2Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, Spain; 3Sao Paulo State University, MarĂ­lia, Brazil 

With the growing international population of scholars in Knowledge Organization (KO), international academic journals are a source of academic communication among researchers. Even with the inclusion of these journals in international databases, there are still limitations due to language, culture, and interpretation. The purpose of this study is to develop a comprehensive list of topics that comprise KO in these respective countries. This study is a content analysis of two KO journals from each country: Brazil, South Korea, Spain, and the United States. The journals are limited to the last five years of each journal, 2008 to 2012. Through the content analysis, this study contributes to increase communication among academics in KO. 


Real Talk: A Toolkit for Community Engagement, Transparency, and Mobile Governance 
Hale M. Thompson1, Jes A. Koepfler2, Katherine Sydenham3, Anthony Hoffman4 
1University of Illinois, Chicago, United States of America; 2University of Maryland, College Park, United States of America; 3University of Michigan, United States of America; 4University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee, United States of America 

The Real Talk toolkit is a design concept for community engagement, transparency, and mobile governance. It is inspired by the design imperative to close the gap between the way communities are experienced online and in the real world. The toolkit design, which includes vibrantly colored, bio-degradable stickers that can be applied to a physical environment, allows a community that is mobilized around an issue to make its concerns, local knowledge, or community pride visible both in the real world and online. Making this information visible enhances opportunities for engagement with local government and community stakeholders. 

The Usability Study on the Multicultural Children’s Book Project of the National Library for Children and Young Adults (NLCY) in Korea 
Wooseob Jeong, Renee Kapusniak, Hyejung Han 
University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee, United States of America 

In this study, usability issues at the multicultural children’s book project web site of the National Library for Children and Young Adults (NLCY) in Korea were identified, particularly for children users. Suggestions for improvements include brighter colors, bigger fonts and graphics, more lively animation and sound, easier navigation, consistent interface, summary availability, better organization of information and labeling, and multilingual searching and browsing function. A user study is being planned for future development. 

Ebooks and Cross Generational Perceived Privacy Issues 
Michael Zimmer, Jennifer Thiele, Renee Kapusniak 
University of Wisconsin Milwaukee, United States of America 

Privacy issues, as it pertains to e-book downloads, are not well understood by the general user. People are downloading library e-books at an increasing rate, and participants of different age groups could potentially have different frameworks when conceptualizing online privacy. A common perception is that the younger computer user is less informed or concerned with privacy issues than the older user. However, recent studies have been finding that this is not necessarily the case. The researchers in this study would like to examine these privacy cross-generation perceptions when it comes to e-Book reading histories, utilization of commercial bookstore websites as well as library websites. Of particular interest are library e-books, as libraries are held at a different standard than commercial entities when it comes to user privacy. A small pilot case study will interview e-book users of different age groups to determine how they view privacy when purchasing e-books or when checking them out from the library. 

Nonparametric Estimation of Search Query Patterns 
Soohyung Joo, Dietmar Wolfram, Suyong Song 
University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, United States of America 

In this poster, we adopted nonparametric regression as a method to identify the unique distribution of query log data collected from the Excite search service in May 2001. In Informetrics, parametric modeling has been widely used in tracing term frequency data, such as Zipf’s law, Lotka’s law, or Bradford’s law. However, these traditional parametric methods have had limited application when detecting distributions for large datasets with a nonlinear pattern and a long tail. This study tested kernel regression as an alternative tool to model nonlinearity of term frequency patterns. The results indicated that the kernel regression produced an improved model fit compared to previous parametric approaches in modeling query patterns.

During this course, participants will identify library users with disabilities at their library and the resources and assistive technologies available to assist them; examine changes in attitudes, laws and technologies that have impacted people with disabilities; and will be able to recommend changes in personal and organizational behaviors to improve services for people with disabilities at their library.

Here's what some of our past participants from a variety of library types had to say about this course:

                      --"Several of our staff enrolled as a group, and used the course as a launching pad to have further discussion across the library. We all agree that there is much for us to do. It created momentum for us around the library about many issues of accessibility."

                      --"We implemented a team to begin looking at all aspects of how our library assists people with disabilities. We have already begun making recommendations for improvement to our department heads."

                      --"We have already begun to look at programs and services in light of what we’ve learned and will be setting up a process that will prioritize new work to implement enhancements and improvements. Several recommendations have already been made in the areas of staff development and training, modifications to web pages and program statements and adoption of new technologies."

During this course, participants will identify library users with disabilities at their library and the resources and assistive technologies available to assist them; examine changes in attitudes, laws and technologies that have impacted people with disabilities; and will be able to recommend changes in personal and organizational behaviors to improve services for people with disabilities at their library.<BR>
<BR>
Here's what some of our past participants from a variety of library types had to say about this course:<BR>
<BR>
&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; --&quot;Several of our staff enrolled as a group, and used the course as a launching pad to have further discussion across the library. We all agree that there is much for us to do. It created momentum for us around the library about many issues of accessibility.&quot;<BR>
<BR>
&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; --&quot;We implemented a team to begin looking at all aspects of how our library assists people with disabilities. We have already begun making recommendations for improvement to our department heads.&quot;<BR>
<BR>
&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; --&quot;We have already begun to look at programs and services in light of what we&#146;ve learned and will be setting up a process that will prioritize new work to implement enhancements and improvements. Several recommendations have already been made in the areas of staff development and training, modifications to web pages and program statements and adoption of new technologies.&quot;<BR>

On Saturday, February 9, Bloomberg hosted the 2013 World Information
Architecture Day event in New York City, one of 15 global events organized
by the Information Architecture Institute in an effort to celebrate and
raise awareness about the practice of Information Architecture (IA). 

 

Several members of the Pratt-SILS community helped to make the event a
tremendous success:

 

Professor Craig MacDonald and students Noreen Whysel and Gretchen Nadasky
served on the NYC Production Committee and were involved in planning and
organizing the event over the last few months. Dr. MacDonald also developed
and planned the session "The State of IA Education: A Town Hall" which led
to an insightful discussion about the role of formal education in preparing
students for careers in IA.

 

Several Pratt-SILS students and alumni served as volunteers to ensure the
event ran smoothly: Jordan deButts, Nik Dragovic, Laura Elsner, Caroline
Gabrielli, Boni Joi Koelliker, Michelle Lee, Lars Lindahl, Houda El Mimouni,
Ngozi Okoro, Teresa Silva, Andy Steinitz, and David Winger. Many other
students and alumni were also in attendance.

Looking for a research topic? Interested in women/gender/sexuality studies? The Women and Gender Studies Section of ACRL has recently revised their Research Agenda for Women and Gender Studies Librarianship . First published in 2004, this newly updated version includes literature reviews which will be particularly helpful to the new researcher. The Committee identified all the research that had been done on women and gender studies librarianship, broke it into categories, summarized it, and used the existing research to identify new questions for further research. The agenda is intended to stimulate the thinking of library school students and new librarians in the field who are looking for research projects and to promote the expansion of the body of information available in the area of women and gender studies librarianship. 

Looking for a place to present your research and get feedback? Proposals for the WGSS Research Poster Session at Annual are due March 29th. Here is the full Call for Proposals . 

Any questions? Feel free to contact Jennifer Gilley to discuss either the Research Agenda or the Poster Session.

Brooke E. Sheldon, Dean and library educator passed away on February 11,
2013 after a long and courageous battle with uterine cancer. She was born
in Lawrence, Massachusetts on August 29, 1931, but spent most of her
childhood in her beloved Nova Scotia – that  “Kingdom by the Sea.”  She was
preceded in death by her parents, Leonard Hadley, Sr. and Elsie Ann
Sutherland Earle, her husband, George, and brother Leonard Earle, Jr. and
sister-in-law Eleanor (Mrs. John) Earle.

She is survived by her brother John and her sister, Barbara (Mrs. Eugene
Hunter) and her sister-in-law Charlotte (Mrs. Leonard Earle), sons and
their families, Scott and Susan Sheldon and Stephen and Maria Sheldon, and
grandchildren George Matthew, Brooke Barrera, and Skyler Sutherland Sheldon
and many nieces and nephews.

She attended Cambridge High and Latin School and earned her BA degree from
Acadia University in Nova Scotia, her MLS degree from Simmons University,
and her PhD from the University of Pittsburgh. She began her library career
as a young adult librarian at the Detroit Public Library and then became
branch librarian of the Albuquerque Public Library. She also held positions
at the Santa Fe Public Library as Children’s Coordinator and then as Head
of the Children’s Department at the New Mexico State Library until she
became Director of Library Development. She was Head of Technical Services
and Training at the Alaska State Library, Associate Director for Training
for the Leadership Training Institute at Florida State University under a
grant for the U.S. Department of Education.

She began her library education career as Dean, School of Library and
Information Studies at Texas Woman’s University and was Acting Provost. She
accepted a position as Dean and Professor at the Graduate School of Library
and Information Science at the University of Texas at Austin. After her
retirement from Austin, for three years she served as Interim Director and
Professor, School of Information Resources and Library Science at the
University of Arizona. She continued teaching in the Executive MLIS program
at San Jose State University and ended her teaching career as Visiting
Scholar and Lecturer, The University of Alberta, School of Library and
Information Studies.

Dr. Sheldon received many honors including Distinguished Alumni Awards from
Simmons College and The University of Pittsburgh. She was granted a Doctor
of Civil Laws (Hon.) from Acadia University. The Brooke E. Sheldon Endowed
Professorship in Management and Leadership was established at the
University of Texas, Austin. She was granted the Outstanding Lecturer Award
from San Jose State University, and the Professional Service Award from the
Association of Library and Information Science Educators, and the Library
Leadership Award from the Arizona Library Association.

Her offices in professional associations included President of the American
Library Association and during this term of office she traveled throughout
the U.S. and abroad. She chaired ALA’s Committee on Accreditation and was
co-founder of the Continuing Professional Education Round Table in the
International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions. She
served on the Board of the Tocker Foundation and was an advisor and Board
Member of the American Library in Paris.

As an advocate for diversity, Dr. Sheldon recruited and supported
minorities for the profession through her successful efforts to get funding
as well as to hire minority faculty. She opened her home in Austin for
those attending the first national conference of REFORMA and was always so
supportive of the activities and efforts of REFORMA.

She has been listed in *A Biographical Directory of Librarians in the
United States and Canada*, *Who’s Who in Library and Information Services*,
*Director of Library and Information Professionals*, and *Who’s Who in
America*.

            Her list of publications include: *Interpersonal Skills, Theory
and Practice: The Librarians’ Guide to Becoming a Leader*, *The Portable
MLIS: Insights from the Experts* (with Ken Haycock), *Leaders in Libraries:
Styles and Strategies for Success*, *Delivering Lifelong Professional
Education Across Space and Time* (with Blanche Woolls).

Her overwhelming characteristic was her strength of personality vis a vis
her friends, students, colleagues, and mentees. She expressed her heartfelt
thanks to the many students and colleagues who recently wrote to her
describing how her leadership and mentorship was instrumental in advancing
their careers.

Her love of travel was interwoven with her professional interests and
demands as she gave speeches and consulted in numerous countries including:
China, Taiwan, England, France, Argentina, Romania, Sweden, Germany, and
Japan. One of her great pleasures in retirement was to travel with friends
to exotic locations around the world.

She was known for hosting spectacular parties for friends, students, and
colleagues garnering her a reputation as a fun loving, free spirit who had
an instant rapport with anyone she met.

The family has asked that in lieu of flowers contributions in her memory be
sent to the Brooke E. Sheldon Endowed Professorship in Management and
Leadership at the University of Texas at Austin and the New Mexico Library
Foundation.

Final Call for Tutorials

36th Annual ACM SIGIR Conference, SIGIR 2013
Dublin, Ireland, 28 July-1 August, 2013

http://sigir2013.ie/tutorialproposals.html


Submission - https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=sigir2013tutorials

===================================================

SIGIR is the major international forum for the presentation of new research results and for the demonstration of new systems and techniques in the broad field of Information Retrieval (IR). SIGIR 2013 will begin with a full day of tutorials on Sunday 28th July 2013. 

SIGIR 2013 solicits proposals for tutorials of either half-day (3 hours plus breaks) or full day (6 hours plus breaks) duration. Proposals are welcomed on all topics of information retrieval and its applications. Each tutorial should cover a single topic in detail. For example, tutorials may cover an established information retrieval topic in depth, introduce an emerging application of information retrieval technologies, or update the information retrieval community on recent advances in related fields. 

Submission Guidelines:

Submissions should include a cover sheet and an extended abstract. The cover sheet should specify: 
1) the title and length of the tutorial; 
2) the intended audience (introductory, intermediate, advanced) and prerequisite knowledge or skills required, if any; 
3) complete contact information for the contact person and other presenters; 
4) a brief biography (max. 2 paragraphs) for each presenter. 

The extended abstract should be 3 to 4 pages, and should include an outline of the tutorial, along with descriptions of its objectives and its relevance to the information retrieval community, and details of materials to be supplied to attendees. 

Tutorials should be prepared in standard SIGIR format available from the ACM Conference style (for LaTeX, use the Option 2 style). Proposals should be submitted via EasyChair - https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=sigir2013tutorials

The submissions will reviewed by senior members of the Information Retrieval research community and tutorials to be presented at SIGIR 2013 will be selected by the SIGIR Program Committee. Notifications will be sent to tutorial proposers by Monday 15 April 2013. 

Important Dates:

•Monday 18 February 2013 : Tutorial proposals due 

•Monday 15 April 2013 : Acceptance notifications 

•Sunday 28 July 2013 : Tutorials Day at the SIGIR Conference in Dublin

Tutorial Chairs:

===================================================

Final Call for Short Papers and Demos

36th Annual ACM SIGIR Conference, SIGIR 2013
Dublin, Ireland, 28 July-1 August, 2013

http://sigir2013.ie/posterdemonstrations.html


Submission - http://sigir2013-shortPaper.confmaster.net/

===================================================

Call for Short Papers and Demos
SIGIR is the major international forum for the presentation of new research results and for the demonstration of new systems and techniques in the broad field of information retrieval (IR). SIGIR 2013 will be held in Dublin, Ireland from 28 July - 1 August 2013. The Conference and Program Chairs invite all those working in areas related to IR to submit original short papers, and proposals for demonstrations. Note, that both short paper and demonstration submission guidelines have changed this year to allow more space for authors to present their ideas. 

Short Papers
Short Paper submissions offer researchers an opportunity to present significant work in progress or research that is best communicated in an interactive or graphical format. Each submission that is accepted for SIGIR 2013 will be presented in a poster format, in order to provide researchers with an opportunity to obtain direct feedback about their work from a wide audience during the poster session.

What makes a good short paper? Short papers are not full papers squeezed into four pages. They can present smaller or more speculative ideas, they could also be be more controversial, they may present new applications of old ideas or the reworking of previous studies. Finally, they should be inspirational and spark some discussion.

Submissions are welcome in areas related to any aspect of Information Retrieval (IR), as identified in the call for contributions and on the SIGIR 2013 website. Submissions are short research papers presenting original, previously unpublished work. Submissions describing the work will be reviewed, and accepted submissions will be published in the conference proceedings.

Short Paper Submission Content Guidelines
Submissions of short papers must be in English, in PDF format and should not exceed 4 pages in SIGIR format (including references and figures). Suitable LaTeX and Word templates for SIGIR are available from the ACM Website (for LaTeX, use Option 2). Authors should conceal their identity. Submissions that are over the 4-page limit or are not anonymous or incomplete will be rejected without review. Note that summaries of full papers that have already been published elsewhere (including in another language) are not acceptable as short paper submissions for SIGIR. It is the responsibility of the authors to ensure that the PDF submission has been uploaded successfully. We suggest downloading the PDF after submission and ensuring it is ok.

Submissions must be submitted electronically using the short paper track of the conference submission system (http://sigir2013-shortPaper.confmaster.net/). At least one author must register and attend the conference. 


Demonstrations
Demonstrations present first-hand experience with research prototypes or operational systems. They provide opportunities to exchange ideas gained from implementing IR systems and to obtain feedback from expert users. Demonstration submissions are welcome in any of the areas related to any aspect of Information Retrieval (IR), as identified in the call for contributions and on the SIGIR 2013 website. The two-page demonstration submissions will appear in the conference proceedings.

What makes a good demo? A good demonstration submission is interesting to a SIGIR audience and shows a novel solution to a problem. The demonstration submission should address the following questions. Who is your target user? Why does my system exist and why is it important? What does my demonstration do and how does it work? How does it compare with existing systems? Finally, how and when might my technology have an impact?

Demonstration Submission Content Guidelines
Submissions of demonstration papers must be in English and should not exceed 2 pages in SIGIR format (including references and figures). Suitable LaTeX and Word templates for SIGIR are available from the ACM Website (for LaTeX, use Option 2). It is the responsibility of the authors to ensure that the PDF submission has been uploaded successfully. We suggest downloading the PDF after submission and ensuring it is ok.

Unlike short and full-paper submissions, authors of demonstration submissions are not expected to take measures to conceal their identity from reviewers. Submissions that are over the 2-page limit and incomplete submissions will be rejected without review. 

Demonstration papers must be submitted electronically via the demonstration track of the conference submission system (http://sigir2013-demo.confmaster.net/). At least one author must register and attend the conference. 

Wireless network access, along with a table and poster mount backdrop will be provided for accepted demonstrations. 

Important Dates
•Short Paper and Demonstration submissions due: 18 February 2013.
•Acceptance notification: 15 April 2013
•Conference in Dublin, Ireland, 28 July - 1 August 2013.

Short Papers and Demos Co-Chairs

===================================================

Final Call for Workshop Proposals

36th Annual ACM SIGIR Conference, SIGIR 2013
Dublin, Ireland, 28 July-1 August, 2013

http://sigir2013.ie/workshopproposals.html


Submission - https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=sigirws2013

===================================================

SIGIR is the major international forum for the presentation of new research results and for the demonstration of new systems and techniques in the broad field of information retrieval (IR). Proposals are solicited for workshops to be held at ACM SIGIR 2013 being held in TCD, Dublin, Ireland. Workshops will usually last for one day and will be held on Thursday 1 August 2013. Workshop topics will typically match those identified in the SIGIR 2013 general call for participation, but proposals concerned with other areas of information retrieval are welcome.

SIGIR 2013 workshops will provide a platform for presenting novel ideas and emerging areas in information retrieval in a less formal and possibly more focused way than the conference itself. The format of each workshop is to be determined by the organizers, but it is expected that workshops will contain ample time for general discussion and engagement by all participants - not just those presenting papers. Workshops that foster collaboration, discussion, group problem-solving and community building initiatives are particularly encouraged. Workshops that only involve the presentation of papers in a “mini conference” format are particularly discouraged.

Researchers and practitioners from all areas of the information retrieval community are invited to submit proposals for review. The organizers of approved workshops will be expected to define the workshop's focus, gather and review submissions, and decide upon final program content. Organizers (including co-organizers) are expected to attend their entire workshop and to provide an article for ACM SIGIR Forum summarizing the event.

Submission Requirements

Workshop proposals should include the following information:
1. Title, theme and purpose of the workshop.
2. Motivation for the workshop and appropriateness to SIGIR.
3. Planned activities and a tentative schedule of events.
4. Selection process for participants and/or presenters and maximum number of participants (if limited).
5. Names of Organisers
6. Names of potential program committee members (who would act to organise the proposed workshop) (if a program committee will be formed).

If the workshop has been held previously at SIGIR or another conference, then the organizers should indicate this and describe briefly past attendance and outcomes, and why another workshop is needed. The submission should also include a short biographical sketch of each organizer, describing relevant qualifications and experience.

Proposals should be submitted via the easy chair workshop submission webpage <https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=sigirws2013> in pdf format and should not exceed 1000 words. (Note: The word count limit only applies to the information prescribed (1-4) above and not to Names of organisers or potential workshop programme committee members).

Important Dates

• Monday 18 February 2013 : Workshop proposals due (revised date)

• Monday 15 April 2013 : Notification of workshop acceptances (revised date)

• Sunday 28 July - Thursday 1 August, 2013 : SIGIR Conference (workshops to be held on 1 August, 2013)

Subject: [ALISEadjunct] Part time & adjunct faculty SIG meeting at ALISE
     conference

Hello to all group members,

my name is Catherine Closet-Crane; it was unanimously decided during our
SIG meeting at the ALISE conference in Seattle that I will be convening
our SIG for the year 2013 with the support of co-convener Alexa Pearce.
I am an adjunct teaching for Kent State SLIS and Alexa is a librarian at
NYU and an adjunct at Pratt.

The SIG meeting on the last morning of the ALISE conference in Seattle
was attended by four (4) persons. We talked about having a presence at
the next ALISE conference in January 2014. We wish to organize a
session/ panel to be held on the last day of the conference to allow
those of us who define themselves as librarians teaching
part-time/adjuncting and who will be attending the ALA conference to
join those of us who define themselves primarily as adjunct faculty.

As you may know the theme of ALISE 2014 is Educational Entrepreneurship
and the topic we propose for the panel and discussion would tentatively
address the Roles and Responsibilities, Place, Employment Opportunities,
and Job (in)Security of Part-Time and Adjunct Educators in the
Educational Enterprise.

We would like to gauge the interest of group and SIG members in holding
such a panel and get your feedback. You can respond on this message
board or privately to me at

Applications open for 2013 Gordon M. Conable Conference Scholarship

To apply visit www.ftrf.org/?Conable_Scholarship<http://www.ftrf.org/?Conable_Scholarship>

CHICAGO- The Freedom to Read Foundation<https://ftrf.site-ym.com/news/116311/Applications-open-for-2013-Gordon-M.-Conable-Conference-Scholarship.htm> (FTRF) has opened applications<https://ftrf.site-ym.com/?2013_Conable_App> for the 2013 Gordon M. Conable Conference Scholarship<https://ftrf.site-ym.com/?Conable_Scholarship>, which will enable a library school student or new professional to attend ALA’s 2013 Annual Conference<http://ala13.ala.org/>, held June 27-July 2 in Chicago, Ill.

The goal of the Gordon M. Conable Conference Scholarship is to advance two principles that Conable held dear: intellectual freedom and mentorship.

The scholarship provides for conference registration, transportation, housing for six nights and six days per diem. In return, the recipient will be expected to attend various FTRF and other intellectual freedom meetings and events at the conference, consult with a mentor/board member and present a report about their experiences. The recipient also will receive a one-year FTRF membership<https://ftrf.site-ym.com/?Membership> and will be invited, although not required, to provide daily updates about his or her experience on the Freedom to Read Foundation blog<https://ftrf.site-ym.com/blogpost/852091/The-FTRF-Blog>.

The deadline for submitting an application for the 2013 Conable Scholarship is Friday, April 5; the award will be announced in late April.

Who is eligible: Students currently enrolled in an ALA-accredited library and information studies degree program<http://www.ala.org/accreditedprograms/directory> or an AASL-recognized master’s programs in school librarianship<http://www.ala.org/aasl/aasleducation/schoollibrary/ncateaaslreviewed> and new professionals (those who are three or fewer years removed from receiving a library school degree) are eligible to receive the Conable Scholarship. Those interested must submit an application that includes two references and an essay detailing their interest in intellectual freedom issues. Applicants also are required to attach a résumé. If the recipient is already registered for ALA’s Annual Conference, he or she will have the conference fee refunded.

To apply for the Conable Conference Scholarship<https://ftrf.site-ym.com/?Conable_Scholarship>, visit www.ftrf.org/?Conable_Scholarship<http://www.ftrf.org/?Conable_Scholarship>. For more information, please contact Jonathan Kelley at (800) 545-2433, ext. 4226 or [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>.

Gordon Conable was a California librarian and intellectual freedom champion who served several terms as president of the Freedom to Read Foundation. He was executive vice president for public libraries at Library Systems and Services (LSSI) in Riverside, Calif., and was responsible for management and performance of LSSI’s public library contracts, including the 30-branch Riverside County, Calif., system. He also served as director of the Monroe County (Mich.) Library System from 1988–1998. During his tenure there, he withstood an intense controversy over Madonna's book "Sex.” Before that he was associate director of the Fort Vancouver Regional Library in Washington. For his efforts, Conable received the Freedom to Read Foundation Roll of Honor Award<https://ftrf.site-ym.com/?Honor> and the John Phillip Immroth Memorial Award<http://www.ala.org/ala/mgrps/rts/ifrt/awardsfinal/Immroth_Award/immroth.cfm> for "intellectual freedom fighters.” In 1994 he was the first librarian recognized as Michigan’s Public Administrator of the Year.

Following his unexpected death in 2005, his wife and FTRF created the Conable Fund<https://ftrf.site-ym.com/?Conable_Fund>, which provides funding for the Conable Scholarship. To date, five Conable Scholarships have been granted. You can contribute to the Conable Fund online<https://ftrf.site-ym.com/donations/donate.asp?id=6091> or by contacting FTRF at (800) 545-2433, ext. 4226 or at [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>.

Have you signed up for "Improving Library Services to People With Disabilities" yet?
We've extended registration through the end of the day today (Friday)!
===========================================
===========================================

CEU credits are now available for "Improving Library Services to People With Disabilities", a popular online course offered by the Association of Specialized and Cooperative Library Agencies (ASCLA), a division of ALA. Registration ends at close-of-business this Thursday, Feb. 14.

Course Schedule: Feb. 18-March 17
Two live chat sessions: Thursday, February 28, 3-4 pm Central Time and Thursday, March 14, 3-4 pm Central Time.
More course information: http://www.ala.org/ascla/asclaevents/onlinelearning/libraryservices
Registration rates start at $150 for ASCLA members. This rate includes $20 for the CEU credits.
Register online now: http://www.ala.org/Template.cfm?Section=oloc&Template=/Conference/ConferenceList.cfm&ConferenceTypeCode=L

During this course, participants will identify library users with disabilities at their library and the resources and assistive technologies available to assist them; examine changes in attitudes, laws and technologies that have impacted people with disabilities; and will be able to recommend changes in personal and organizational behaviors to improve services for people with disabilities at their library.

Here's what some of our past participants from a variety of library types had to say about this course:

                  	--"Several of our staff enrolled as a group, and used the course as a launching pad to have further discussion across the library. We all agree that there is much for us to do. It created momentum for us around the library about many issues of accessibility."

                  	--"We implemented a team to begin looking at all aspects of how our library assists people with disabilities. We have already begun making recommendations for improvement to our department heads."

                  	--"We have already begun to look at programs and services in light of what we’ve learned and will be setting up a process that will prioritize new work to implement enhancements and improvements. Several recommendations have already been made in the areas of staff development and training, modifications to web pages and program statements and adoption of new technologies."

The School of Library and Information Science at Wayne State University
requests nominations for two awards.

 

THE DISTINGUISHED ALUMNA/ALUMNUS AWARD will be given to a graduate who has

award.  The recipient is expected to attend the awards reception, which is

eligibility for the award is restricted to graduates of the School.

 

THE PROFESSIONAL SERVICE AWARD acknowledges Wayne State alumni and other
individuals who have made significant and sustained contributions to the
Michigan library community during their careers and have supported the
School of Library and Information Science.  The Professional Service Award
recognizes individuals who, for example, have been leaders in state,
regional, and/or national professional associations, and/or have held
leadership roles in activities related to their positions.

 

Recipients of both awards are selected by a School committee made up of
faculty, staff, and students. The awards are announced at the Annual
Recognition Reception. Individuals may nominate themselves or others for
either award by submitting the following information:

Dear Colleague,

I would like to inform you about our summer 2013 field school, the San Gemini Preservation Studies Program, now in its 14th year, which is dedicated to the preservation of cultural heritage and offers students the opportunity to study and travel in Italy. In particular, I would like to inform you about two courses we offer: one on paper restoration and a new program on book bindings restoration:

Introduction to the Restoration of Book Bindings in Italy:
May 26th – June 22nd
This course on the restoration and conservation of bindings and their structural features aims to give an overview of the field of book conservation looking at the book as a three-dimensional structure at the theoretical level as well as with hands-on experience. The course will introduce students to the history of book making, especially concentrating on production in the Western culture.

In the workshop students will have an opportunity to make four book facsimiles with various historic bindings using traditional materials and techniques and learn to analyze and document old books in terms of the structure, materials and state of conservation. They will also perform light preventive conservation including building various types of protective covers.

To learn more about this course, please review the syllabus, which you can visit our WEBSITE.

Introduction to Restoration of Paper in Books and Archival Documents:
July 7th – August 3rd
This course is an introduction to the restoration of paper in books, archival material and documents. It gives students an understanding of the nature of paper as a material, its history and the evolution of its use over time. The focus is on paper, as a support media for writing and printing, and two-dimensional documents. The course also familiarizes students with the structure of books and their bindings.

Besides studying the nature of the material, the course investigates the most common agents of deterioration and the various approaches to restoration of paper. Along with the theoretical lectures, the program includes hands-on workshops comprising: exercises in traditional ways of paper making; testing, analyzing and identifying types of paper, inks, paints, pigments and printing techniques; disassembling books, their bindings, and; exercises using different techniques of paper restoration.

The course will include a field project restoring paper documents from the San Gemini Historic Archives and a field trip to Fabriano. To learn more about this course, please review the syllabus, which you can visit our WEBSITE.

If you know any students, scholars, or others interested in this type of study, please inform them about our program. We would appreciate it if you could list our program on your organization's website as an available educational resource.

We have a 2013 flyer that you may wish to post on your department notice board or forward to interested parties. You can print this from our website, on our About Us page. Please let us know if you have any problem printing and we can email you the PDF.

Thank you very much.

Cordially, Max Cardillo
Director
San Gemini Preservation Studies Program

The deadline has been extended to Friday, March 1, 2013, to submit
proposals for presentations for the two Library Research Round Table
(LRRT)-sponsored Research Forums at the 2013 American Library
Association Annual Conference in Chicago, IL (June 27-July 2).  The LRRT
Forums are a set of programs at the ALA Annual Conference featuring
presentations of LIS research, in progress or completed, followed by
discussion.  One of the forums is broad in scope and one is on a more
specific topic. The forums are:

 

Research: Data-Driven Services 

Libraries collect data on usage of collections, services, and physical
space. However, much of these data are not utilized to capacity. This
session will feature three research papers that demonstrate how to
leverage user-centered data to develop services. Audience members will
learn about methods and techniques that they can use locally to answer
questions in their own organizations. Attendees will be able to take
away results that could be applied directly in local settings and make
connections with presenters and one another to explore creative ways to
respond to challenges.

 

Research: Creative Problem Solving

Novelty and innovation are needed to respond to many of today's
challenges. Libraries and librarians require new and creative approaches
to defining questions and finding answers. Three papers that demonstrate
innovative inquiry will be selected by a committee for inclusion in this
Forum. Attendees will discover methods and techniques that they
previously were not familiar with, but can be employed in their
libraries. Audience members will become cognizant of new questions or
emerging ways to state and think about problems. The results presented
will offer directly applicable solutions that can be adapted by
attendees in their organizations.

 

This is an opportunity to present and discuss your research project
conducted in the broad area of library and information science or in a
more specialized area of the field. LRRT welcomes papers emphasizing the
problems, theories, methodologies, or significance of research findings
for LIS. Topics can include, but are not limited to, user studies and
user behavior, electronic services, service effectiveness,
organizational structure and personnel, library value determination,
shared collections, collection assessment, digital libraries, archiving,
preservation, and evaluation of library and information services.  Both
completed research and research in progress will be considered.  All
researchers, including practitioners from all types of libraries,
library school faculty and students, and other interested individuals
are encouraged to submit proposals.  LRRT Members and nonmembers of LRRT
are invited and welcomed to submit proposals.

 

The Committee will use a blind review process to select a maximum of six
projects, three for each of the two forums.  The selected researchers
will be required to present their papers in person at the forums and to
register for the conference.  All expenses, including registration for
the conference, travel, accommodation, etc., are the responsibility of
the researchers/presenters.  Criteria for selection are: 

 

1.	Significance of the study to library and information science
research;
2.	Quality and creativity of the methodology;
3.	Potential to fill a research gap or to build on previous LIS
studies;
4.	Adherence to submission requirements (see below).

 

Please submit a two-page proposal by Friday, March 1, 2013.  Late
submissions will not be considered, and submissions must be limited to
two pages in length.  On the first page, please list your name(s),
title(s), institutional affiliation(s), and contact information
(telephone number, mailing address, and email address). The second page
should NOT show your name or any other identifying information.
Instead, it must include: 1) The title of your project, and 2) A
500-word or less abstract.  The abstract must include a problem
statement, problem significance, project objectives, methodology, and
conclusions (or tentative conclusions for work in progress), and an
indication of whether the research is in-progress or completed.
Previously published research or research accepted for publication by
March 1, 2013, will not be considered.

 

Notification of acceptance will be made by Friday, March 29, 2013.
Please email submissions (with an indication of which of the two forums
for which the abstract should be considered) to:

It is our honour to announce the Plenary Speakers of the 5th Qualitative and
Quantitative Methods in Libraries International Conference (QQML2013), 4 - 7
June 2013, “La Sapienza” University, Rome Italy. 
 
Workshops 
Impact evaluation workshop / Organized by Mr. Markku A. Laitinen, Planning
Officer, The National Library of Finland and Ms. Anna Niemelä, Service
Coordinator, The National Library of Finland
The libraries have a long tradition in collecting statistical data and other
evidence - user survey data etc. - about their operations. In practice, the
utilization of data collected may not be as versatile as possible. However,
the evidence of effectiveness and impact of library services may be of
crucial importance for libraries to survive in the current economic
atmosphere. 
Hence, we invite library experts around the world to unite their forces to
find new good practices to show impact and value of libraries!
In the workshop, we seek together answers to following questions: 
- To which quarter do you prove impact and value of your library?
- How do you show that services provided by your library give additional
value to your customers/target group? 
- What kind of information or data is necessary to collect in order to show
the impact and benefits of your library? 
The workshop is carried out in 3 sessions with same content during the
conference

Information Grounds: A field method and design workshop for supporting how
people experience everyday information in informal social settings /
Organized Dr. Karen E. Fisher, Professor, University of Washington
Information School, USA 
Information Grounds are informal social settings where people create, remix,
and share everyday information all while attending to another activity—cafes
and pubs, hair and tattoo salons, grocery stores, football games, waiting
rooms, parks, libraries and book stores, public transport, the beach… online
settings too, including Warcraft, Etsy, Pinterest and more. Fisher (writing
as Pettigrew, 1999, p. 811), defined information grounds as synergistic
“environment(s) temporarily created when people come together for a singular
purpose but from whose behavior emerges a social atmosphere that fosters the
spontaneous and serendipitous sharing of information,” and later developed
propositions and a typology (Fisher, Landry & Naumer, 2007; Counts & Fisher,
2010; pie.uw.edu). In this all-day, two part-workshop, participants will (a)
learn the information ground “people-place-information” conceptual framework
and basic field methods for studying information grounds, (b) conduct
fieldwork in Rome, and (c) analyze their observations using a design
thinking approach that considers how their information ground might be
served and utilized by tweaking people, place, information factors via
applications, services and policy. Implications for how libraries can be
promoted as information grounds are a key highlight. Note: this workshop is
a blast—very conceptual, but practical and hands-on: bring your walking
shoes, sun block, note pad/sketch book, digital camera and Euros for
espresso and biscotti.

Plenary Speeches
Looking Out and Looking In - The Universe of Information
Lynne Marie Rudasill 
Associate Professor at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign 
Member of the IFLA Governing Board 
We are all aware of the fact that the forces of globalization are not just
felt in the spheres of economics, politics, and sociology. Library and
information science is also facing the challenges brought on by vast
technological changes that are having an increasingly foundational impact
upon the field. The concepts of interdisciplinarity, problem-solving, and
big data are explored here in an effort to understand the intricacies of
measurement in a rapidly changing field, the tools that can be provided to
our institutions and, most importantly, to our users. Beginning with a look
at a galaxy of clickstream data that provides a striking example of
interdisciplinarity, we can explore the information universe where competing
methodologies, both quantitative and qualitative, demand our attention and
resources. We will also try to see the expanding edges of our universe to
understand where we might be going next.
Lynne Marie Rudasill is Associate Professor and Global Studies Librarian at
the University Library of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
She is fully embedded in the Center for Global Studies, a Title VI National
Resource Center supported by the U.S. Department of Education, and holds the
unique distinction of being the first professional full-time digital
librarian in the emerging field of global studies. Lynne provides library
instruction, reference services, and collection management support in the
fields of global studies, European Union studies, political science and
United Nations documents. Like most professional university librarians,
Lynne regularly offers subject-area training and instruction for students,
faculty, K-12 teachers, and specialized audiences, such as the military. In
her capacity as Associate Professor of Library and Information Science,
Lynne has taught graduate courses at the University of Illinois Graduate
School of Library and Information Science including, “Information,
Libraries, and Society” and “Social Science Research Methods and Resources”.
GSLIS is the top-ranked library school in the nation, and the University
Library is the largest public university research library in the United
States. With her colleague, Barbara Ford, Director of the Mortenson Center
for International Librarianship, Lynne currently teaches an undergraduate
global studies course “The Power of Information in Development,” which
provides a multidisciplinary and information-intensive approach to the study
of the Millennium Development Goals of the United Nations.
Lynne’s scholarly research focuses on access to information, especially
access by users to information on digital platforms and access by scholars
to fugitive literature. She isauthor of numerous journal articles, book
chapters, reference works, conference presentations, and edited books, the
most recent of which is Open Access and Digital Libraries: Social Science
Libraries in Action (2013), co-edited with Maria E. Dorta-Duque of the
Instituto Superior de Relaciones Internacionales (ISRI) in Cuba. This volume
isthe first fully bilingual publication in the IFLA “greenback” series.
Lynne isa member inlong standing of the American Library Association (ALA)
and the Association for College and Research Libraries (ACRL). She was
awarded the ACRL Law and Political Science Section’s Marta Lange/CQ Press
Award in 2009 for her contributions to that group. She has served as the
Chair of the Social Science Libraries Section of the International
Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA) and currently is
a member of the IFLA Governing Board and Professional Committee as Chair of
Division 1, Library Types. In her teaching, research and her professional
service, Lynne emphasizes the importance of multi-disciplinary and
interdisciplinary scholarship to help solve the problems of a population of
over 7 billion people inhabiting the same planet.

Collaboration—the most wicked enabler to fabulously successful research
Dr. Karen E. Fisher 
University of Washington Information School
Collaboration signals bringing together people whose assets—professional
skills and expertise, social capital, work styles, personalities, and more
work in harmony towards achieving a common goal. A complex notion,
collaboration ranges in degree of formality, whether required or voluntary,
and extent and type of participation. Most research, like other human
endeavors, comprises some element of collaboration. Yet stories approach
urban myth of collaborations that were hard to create, wasted time, damaged
relations, and left unfinished business leading to nowhere. However,
collaboration can go remarkably well, showing the power of many, the
creation of gold from dust. Two such examples are shared—macro and
micro—that have several commonalities and yet vary widely in team size,
budget, resources, and genesis. The U.S. Impact Study (2010-12) of how
people use computers and the Internet in public libraries led by Fisher,
Crandall and Becker was funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and
the Institute of Museum & Library Services. In addition to the PIs,
assistants and consultants, the study comprised an expert committee and
partnered with about 500 libraries. Mixed-methods—an unprecedented web
survey (continuing today), telephone survey and case studies—were used to
study 50,000 people. The second study, InfoMe, is an ethnographic-design
study that brings together public libraries, community-based organizations,
corporate agencies and university researchers to understand how ethnic
minority youth seek information and use technology on behalf of other
people, especially older family members, and how this information mediary
phenomenon can be supported through information technology, services and
policy. This study—being exploratory, qualitative and design-focused but
also involving survey techniques and community training workshops is vastly
smaller in nature and entirely dependent on collaboration for success with
its myriad partners. Funded by Microsoft and the Institute of Museum and
Library Services, InfoMe led from the U.S. Impact Study that showed 63% of
people used library technology on behalf of another person in the past 12
months, which has strong implications for how we design information systems,
support information literacy, and determine impact. Together these two
studies illustrate how collaboration can elevate the doing of research,
turning every moment into a state of flow and igniting research programs
with long-reaching effects.
Dr. Karen E. Fisher is a Professor in the University of Washington
Information School and Adjunct Professor of Communication. She teaches and
conducts research on how people experience information as part of everyday
life, with emphasis on the interpersonal aspects of information behavior,
the role of informal social settings or “information grounds” in information
flow, as well as the broad impacts of information and communication
technologies. Her current work supported by the U.S. Institute of Museum and
Library Services and Microsoft asks how ethnic minority youth seek
information and use technology on behalf of other people, especially older
family members, and how this phenomenon can be supported through information
technology, services and policy. A second current area involves online
dating as an information problem, the development of instrumental ties, and
relevance to other dyadic relationships—business, creative—especially
long-term. Dr. Fisher’s 2009-2011 work addressed the multiplex value of
public libraries in communities across the United States. In this mixed
methods study (with Crandall, Becker, et al.,) of 50,000 people conducted
for the Institute of Museum and Library Services and the Bill & Melinda
Gates Foundation, a key finding is that 63% of people use library technology
on behalf of another person, which has strong implications for how we design
information systems, support information literacy, and determine impact.
Co-author of Theory in Motion: Using theories of information behavior to
design applications, policy and services (in progress, with S. Erdelez),
Digital Inclusion: Measuring the Impact of Information and Community
Technology (2009, with M. Crandall), Theories of Information Behavior (2005,
with S. Erdelez & L. McKechnie), and several monographs about community
services in public libraries, her supporters include the National Science
Foundation, Microsoft Research, the United Way of America, and the Social
Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada. Recipient of the 2005
and 2008 ALA Jesse H. Shera Award for Distinguished Published Research, Dr.
Fisher has been recognized for her research by the Hawaii Int'l Conference
on System Sciences, American Society for Information Science & Technology,
and the Association for Library and Information Science Education. An alum
of the University of Western Ontario (PhD & MLIS) and Memorial University of
Newfoundland (BA), she held a postdoc at the University of Michigan, and was
a Visiting Researcher at Microsoft Research, and a NORSLIS Visiting
Professor at Oslo University College, Norway. She serves on the
international program committees for ISIC: The Information Behavior
Conference and i3: Information: Interactions and Impact; and was co-program
chair of the 2011 iSchool Conference. A past member of ASIST’s Board of
Directors, Prof. Fisher was inducted to the ASIST SIG USE Academy of Fellows
in 2009. To learn more, visit infome.uw.edu and tascha.uw.edu/usimpact. The
only Newfoundlander in Seattle, Karen lives in Seattle’s Fremont houseboat
community and can be found biking the Burke-Gilman Trail when she’s not at
hot yoga, belly dancing at the Visionary Dance Studio or contemplating
moving to Tuscany.

The libraries have a long tradition in collecting statistical data and other
evidence - user survey data etc. - about their operations. In practice, the
utilization of data collected may not be as versatile as possible. However, the
evidence of effectiveness and impact of library services may be of crucial
importance for libraries to survive in the current economic atmosphere. <br>
Hence, we invite library experts around the world to unite their forces to find
new good practices to show impact and value of libraries!<br>
In the workshop, we seek together answers to following questions: <br>
- To which quarter do you prove impact and value of your library?<br>
- How do you show that services provided by your library give additional value
to your customers/target group? <br>
- What kind of information or data is necessary to collect in order to show the
impact and benefits of your library? <br>
The workshop is carried out in 3 sessions with same content during the
conference<br>

Information Grounds are informal social settings where people create, remix,
and share everyday information all while attending to another
activity&#8212;cafes and pubs, hair and tattoo salons, grocery stores, football
games, waiting rooms, parks, libraries and book stores, public transport, the
beach&#8230; online settings too, including <span class=SpellE>Warcraft</span>,
<span class=SpellE>Etsy</span>, <span class=SpellE>Pinterest</span> and more.
Fisher (writing as Pettigrew, 1999, p. 811), defined information grounds as
synergistic &#8220;environment(s) temporarily created when people come together
for a singular purpose but from whose <span class=SpellE>behavior</span>
emerges a social atmosphere that fosters the spontaneous and serendipitous
sharing of information,&#8221; and later developed propositions and a typology
(Fisher, Landry &amp; <span class=SpellE>Naumer</span>, 2007; Counts &amp;
Fisher, 2010; pie.uw.edu). In this all-day, two part-workshop, participants
will (a) learn the information ground &#8220;people-place-information&#8221;
conceptual framework and basic field methods for studying information grounds,
(b) conduct fieldwork in Rome, and (c) analyze their observations using a
design thinking approach that considers how their information ground might be
served and utilized by tweaking people, place, information factors via applications,
services and policy. Implications for how libraries can be promoted as
information grounds are a key highlight. <em><i><font face="Book Antiqua"><span

bringing together people whose assets&#8212;professional skills and expertise,
social capital, work styles, personalities, and more work in harmony towards
achieving a common goal. A complex notion, collaboration ranges in degree of
formality, whether required or voluntary, and extent and type of participation.
Most research, like other human <span class=SpellE>endeavors</span>, comprises
some element of collaboration. Yet stories approach urban myth of
collaborations that were hard to create, wasted time, damaged relations, and
left unfinished business leading to nowhere. However, collaboration can go
remarkably well, showing the power of many, the creation of gold from dust. Two
such examples are shared&#8212;macro and micro&#8212;that have several
commonalities and yet vary widely in team size, budget, resources, and genesis.
The U.S. Impact Study (2010-12) of how people use computers and the Internet in
public libraries led by Fisher, Crandall and Becker was funded by the Bill
&amp; Melinda Gates Foundation and the Institute of Museum &amp; Library
Services. In addition to the PIs, assistants and consultants, the study
comprised an expert committee and partnered with about 500 libraries.
Mixed-methods&#8212;an unprecedented web survey (continuing today), telephone
survey and case studies&#8212;were used to study 50,000 people. The second
study, <span class=SpellE>InfoMe</span>, is an ethnographic-design study that
brings together public libraries, community-based organizations, corporate
agencies and university researchers to understand how ethnic minority youth
seek information and use technology on behalf of other people, especially older
family members, and how this information <span class=SpellE>mediary</span>
phenomenon can be supported through information technology, services and
policy. This study&#8212;being exploratory, qualitative and design-focused but
also involving survey techniques and community training workshops is vastly
smaller in nature and entirely dependent on collaboration for success with its
myriad partners. Funded by Microsoft and the <st1:place w:st="on"><st1:PlaceType w:st="on">Institute</st1:PlaceType>
of <st1:PlaceName w:st="on">Museum</st1:PlaceName></st1:place> and Library
Services, <span class=SpellE>InfoMe</span> led from the U.S. Impact Study that
showed 63% of people used library technology on behalf of another person in the
past 12 months, which has strong implications for how we design information
systems, support information literacy, and determine impact. Together these two
studies illustrate how collaboration can elevate the doing of research, turning
every moment into a state of flow and igniting research programs with
long-reaching effects.<o:p></o:p></span></font></span></p>

There are still a few openings left for the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill's School of Information and Library Science (SILS) <http://sils.unc.edu>  summer seminars to Prague, Czech Republic and London, England. Set for May 19 to June 1, 2013, the two week seminars offer an opportunity to gain an in-depth view of libraries and librarianship in the world's most historic places. Registration is open to all students and professionals. Librarians and information science professionals at all stages of their careers have found these summer seminars enjoyable and worthwhile. Everyone is welcome to participate, and students enrolled in a library science program can receive three (3) hours of graduate credit for the seminar. Be sure to register soon.

THE PRAGUE SUMMER SEMINAR
Prague, the magical city of cathedrals, gold-tipped towers, and church domes, is one of the most popular destinations in East Central Europe. This summer seminar allows library professionals to explore the past, present, and future of libraries and librarianship in the heart of one of the world's most remarkable, yet largely undiscovered, countries. During this two-week, residential summer program participants will enjoy lectures and tours related to librarianship in this culturally and academically rich country. In addition to visiting libraries and museums in Prague, the group will also make trips to visit two UNESCO World Heritage sites, Kroměříž (http://whc.unesco.org/en/list/860) and Český Krumlov (http://whc.unesco.org/en/list/617) with their historic libraries, castles and gardens.

Accommodation in the center of Prague allows participants to explore this historic and absorbing capital city during the week, and the surrounding countryside during their free time on the weekends. More information about Prague can be found in the Lonely Planet Guide at http://whc.unesco.org/en/list/617 and on the Prague information site at http://www.prague.cz/. This seminar has been offered each summer by UNC and Charles University in Prague since 2002.

If you have any questions about the seminar, please contact Kaitlyn Murphy, by e-mail [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]> or by phone 919-962-0208.

"The seminar in Prague was a spectacular addition to my graduate studies. With the group I was able to see libraries and books unavailable to any tourist, or through any other program. The guides were attentive and put together creative and interesting programs and tours for us. We were treated like visiting scholars and colleagues. The Czech Republic itself is a quintessentially beautiful European country and we got to see quite a lot of it. I recommend this program to anyone!"
- Prague summer seminar participant

THE LONDON SUMMER SEMINAR
The London Summer Seminar is offered May 19 to June 1, 2013 by SILS and the Department of Information Studies at University College London (UCL). The seminar will be held in London, one of the most historic and dynamic cities in the world, and will feature lectures and presentations at UCL as well as tours of libraries and cultural heritage institutions in England.

Although most of the program will take place in London, there will be day trips to visit the university libraries at both Oxford and Cambridge. In London, participants will tour behind the scenes at the British Library, the National Archives, the Imperial War Museum (including its library) and the Wellcome Library (including the History of Medicine Collection). Visits will be made to other types of libraries and there will be presentations from experts in the field of librarianship in Great Britain. There will also be guided tours of UCL and the Bloomsbury area of London. Some free time will be built into the program so that participants can explore London and visit other libraries and cultural institutions of their choice.

"The London Summer Seminar was one of the best experiences of my life; integrating all the top aspects of many types of librarianship, and the joys of being with other enthusiastic librarians in one of the best cities in the world. Not only do you get to visit the birthplace of libraries, but you are immersed into another way of life... British-style. You will not want to leave the city or the friends you make here!"

For more details or to register, please visit: http://sils.unc.edu/programs/international/london
If you have questions not answered on the Web site, please contact Kaitlyn Murphy at 919.962.0288.

These popular seminars are open on a first come, first served basis. Register today!

<br>
</span></b><span lang="EN" style="font-size:9.0pt; font-family:&quot;Verdana&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;; color:#363636">Prague, the magical city of cathedrals, gold-tipped towers, and church domes, is one of the most popular destinations in East Central Europe. This summer seminar
 allows library professionals to explore the past, present, and future of libraries and librarianship in the heart of one of the world's most remarkable, yet largely undiscovered, countries. During this two-week, residential summer program participants will
 enjoy lectures and tours related to librarianship in this culturally and academically rich country. In addition to visiting libraries and museums in Prague, the group will also make trips to visit two UNESCO World Heritage sites, Kroměříž (<a href="http://whc.unesco.org/en/list/860" target="_blank"><span style="color:#6699CC; text-decoration:none">http://whc.unesco.org/en/list/860</span></a>)
 and Český Krumlov (<a href="http://whc.unesco.org/en/list/617" target="_blank"><span style="color:#6699CC; text-decoration:none">http://whc.unesco.org/en/list/617</span></a>) with their historic libraries, castles and gardens.

<span lang="EN" style="font-size:9.0pt; font-family:&quot;Verdana&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;; color:#363636">Accommodation in the center of Prague allows participants to explore this historic and absorbing capital city during the week, and the surrounding countryside during
 their free time on the weekends. More information about Prague can be found in the Lonely Planet Guide at
<a href="http://whc.unesco.org/en/list/617" target="_blank"><span style="color:#6699CC; text-decoration:none">http://whc.unesco.org/en/list/617</span></a> and on the Prague information site at

 any other program. The guides were attentive and put together creative and interesting programs and tours for us. We were treated like visiting scholars and colleagues. The Czech Republic itself is a quintessentially beautiful European country and we got to
 see quite a lot of it. I recommend this program to anyone!&quot;<br>

</span></b><span lang="EN" style="font-size:9.0pt; font-family:&quot;Verdana&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;; color:#363636"><br>
The London Summer Seminar is offered May 19 to June 1, 2013 by SILS and the Department of Information Studies at University College London (UCL). The seminar will be held in London, one of the most historic and dynamic cities in the world, and will feature
 lectures and presentations at UCL as well as tours of libraries and cultural heritage institutions in England.
<br>
<br>
Although most of the program will take place in London, there will be day trips to visit the university libraries at both Oxford and Cambridge. In London, participants will tour behind the scenes at the British Library, the National Archives, the Imperial War
 Museum (including its library) and the Wellcome Library (including the History of Medicine Collection). Visits will be made to other types of libraries and there will be presentations from experts in the field of librarianship in Great Britain. There will
 also be guided tours of UCL and the Bloomsbury area of London. Some free time will be built into the program so that participants can explore London and visit other libraries and cultural institutions of their choice.
<br>
<br>
&quot;The London Summer Seminar was one of the best experiences of my life; integrating all the top aspects of many types of librarianship, and the joys of being with other enthusiastic librarians in one of the best cities in the world. Not only do you get to visit
 the birthplace of libraries, but you are immersed into another way of life... British-style. You will not want to leave the city or the friends you make here!&quot;<br>

School of Library and Information Science to Double Its Space with Expansion
The School of Library and Information Science (SLIS) is currently undergoing a 14,000-square-foot renovation to expand and double its space for teaching, research and student services.

Phase 1 involves the full renovation of the former Audio Visual Services space in the University Library (14,000 square feet), and Phase 2 involves the renovation of the existing SLIS space (approximately 12,000 square feet). The construction began in December 2012 and will be completed in mid-June 2013. Read more at http://www.kent.edu/slis/news/newsdetail.cfm?newsitem=DFB22756-A565-6EFD-FF2BD998BB9C9D08.

Student News

SLIS student Christine Pyles published an article titled "It's No Joke: Comics and Collection Development" in the Nov./Dec. 2012 issue of Library Journal. The article is based on a paper she wrote for her Access to Information (60001) class regarding information access for adult readers of comics and graphic novels. She "used the Cleveland Public Library as a prime example of what not to do when housing comics and graphic novels and proposed a classification scheme for them."



All the best,

Explore "Museum Origins" in Italy!
Now Accepting Applications for Summer Course

http://bit.ly/MuseumOrigins2013

The Museum Origins course offered by the School of Library and Information Science (SLIS) at Kent State University still has openings for the eight-week, summer 2013 class, which includes two weeks in Florence, Italy, visiting museums and learning about the collectors and collections from which they evolved.

The three-credit course is open to graduate (master's and doctoral) students in any field, from any institution. Alumni of any Kent State graduate program also are eligible. Students in the 2012 course came from varied academic backgrounds, including history, anthropology, classics, business and other fields, and were enrolled in graduate programs at Kent State, State University of New York-University at Buffalo and University of Kentucky.

Admission to the course is competitive; only 15 students will be accepted. Application materials and additional details, including an informational video, are available at http://bit.ly/MuseumOrigins2013. Deadline for applications is March 1, 2013.

The 2013 course runs from June 10 to Aug. 3, and is onsite in Florence, Italy, from June 30 to July 12. Students will spend the first three weeks reading, researching and preparing for the trip. The next two weeks, in Florence, involve touring museums and private collections that will enhance the readings and help build knowledge for a final research paper. Students will visit, among other sites, the Uffizi Gallery, Museo Stibbert, Palazzo Davanzati, Palazzo Vecchio, Museo Galileo and Museo di Storia Naturale. The final three weeks of the class will be dedicated to completion of the research paper. There are no face-to-face class meetings outside of those in Italy.

Kevin Steinbach, from Canton, Ohio, took the class in 2012 as part of the Master of Library and Information Science (M.L.I.S.) museum studies specialization at Kent State. He said, "This class is what sold me on applying for the M.L.I.S. degree. I knew without a doubt that I would get the experience of a lifetime and learn so much by immersing myself in the culture where museums were 'born' -- something you can't get anywhere else."

Michelle Rucker, from Columbus, Ohio, is also in Kent State's M.L.I.S.  program. Of her experience in the 2012 class, she said, "Even though I am not in the Museum Studies program -- I'm on the librarian track -- this class was still relevant to me. Being there, visiting the museums, walking in the same halls as these famous artists and the Medici -- it was all pretty amazing. And having the local professors as guides added so much more to the trip than if I were to go by myself."

Each day after visiting the museums, students participate in class discussions in Kent State's Florence facility, the Palazzo dei Cerchi, a prestigious building in the historic center of the city, just north of Piazza della Signoria. Medieval Florentine sources date it at about 1280 and indicate that it belonged to the Cerchi merchant family. Records show that in the 15th century, the building was used as studio space for Renaissance painters and later by Cosimo I de' Medici as the ducal printing house. Though fully restored and equipped for state-of-the-art educational purposes, the Palazzo dei Cerchi preserves its outstanding medieval features and decorations.

For the two weeks onsite in Florence, students live in shared apartments arranged by the university. All apartments are fully furnished and located within the ancient city walls and within walking distance of the Palazzo.

The course is taught by SLIS Assistant Professor Kiersten F. Latham, Ph.D., who leads the school's museum studies specialization. She holds a Ph.D. in library and information management from Emporia State University, Kans.; a master's in historical administration and museum studies from the University of Kansas; and a bachelor's in anthropology from the University of Michigan. She has more than 20 years' experience working in museums in various capacities - as curator, collection manager, director, volunteer, program coordinator, archivist, historic interpreter, board member, exhibit designer and consultant.

In Italy, tours and lectures are provided in English by local Florentine scholars.

All the best,

Flo

Over the past decade, a significant gap has emerged between the research and development in digital curation, on the one hand, and professional practices of archivists, librarians, and museum curators, on the other. There are now many viable applications, models, strategies, and standards for long-term care of digital objects. However, many institutions with a mandate to do this work are either unaware of the options or currently unable to evaluate and implement them. There is a need to test, refine and diffuse existing innovations into professional practice.

The Closing the Digital Curation Gap (CDCG) Symposium will address a variety of issues and initiatives related to digital curation capacity building.  This day-long event will explore continuing education and development of resources to guide professional in getting started in digital curation.

Speakers will report on a wide range of projects and professional development initiatives in the US and Europe.  Interactive sessions will provide the opportunity for audience members to share their own experiences, needs and expectations, as well as providing input on the activities and products presented by the speakers.

Date: Thursday, March 7th, 8:30 - 4:30
Location: Pleasants Room, Wilson Library, UNC-Chapel Hill
Cost: $25; Students $10
Lunch and Breaks Included

Speakers include:

*       Scott Brandt, Associate Dean for Research, Purdue University Libraries
*       Dr. Kevin Cherry, Deputy Secretary, North Carolina Office of Archives & History
*       George Coulbourne, Office of Strategic Initiatives, Library of Congress & DPOE Program
*       Joy Davidson, Associate Director, Digital Curation Centre, Glasgow, Scotland

models, strategies, and standards for long-term care of digital objects. However, many institutions with a mandate to do this work are either unaware of the options or currently unable to evaluate and implement them. There is a need to test, refine and diffuse
existing innovations into professional practice.</div>
<div>&nbsp;</div>
<div>The Closing the Digital Curation Gap (CDCG) Symposium will address a variety of issues and initiatives related to digital curation capacity building.&nbsp; This day-long event will explore continuing education and development of resources to guide professional
in getting started in digital curation.</div>
<div>&nbsp;</div>
<div>Speakers will report on a wide range of projects and professional development initiatives in the US and Europe.&nbsp; Interactive sessions will provide the opportunity for audience members to share their own experiences, needs and expectations, as well as providing
input on the activities and products presented by the speakers.</div>

Kent State University will host the inaugural webinar to launch the KM@KSU webinar series (http://kmatksu.iwiki.kent.edu) on Thursday, February 21 at noon EST (http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/fixedtime.html?msg=KM%40KSU+Webinar&iso=20130221T12&p1=415&ah=1&am=30).  This opening webinar, hosted by Goodyear Professor Dr. Denise Bedford, will introduce the series format.

Kent State defines knowledge management broadly to include: knowledge strategy and leadership, intellectual capital, knowledge economies, the economics of information, innovation, collaboration and communities, communication and culture, knowledge technologies, knowledge architecture, knowledge asset management, organizational learning, knowledge elicitation and knowledge representation.
Knowledge management is a practical discipline, and knowledge managers tend to only come together to talk about broad areas of KM at conferences or talk in small groups at our economic sectors or within our own communities.  The purpose of these weekly KM@KSU webinars is to broaden the dialog on topics related to knowledge management.
Any topic, whether practical or theoretical, that touches on any of these basic areas is welcome in the webinars.  The KM@KSU series is launching with some invited presenters to get the series started.  Hopefully, the series will continue indefinitely through broad participation from the knowledge management community.  A webinar will be offered anytime there is an interest.
If you'd like to submit an idea for a webinar, please go to our website (http://kmatksu.iwiki.kent.edu/Submit+Presentations+Request) and submit your own topic or recommend a speaker or a topic you'd like to hear about.  We strongly encourage students to present their work through this series. We will do our best to accommodate suggestions.
Webinars will be offered online Thursdays at noon and will typically run until 1:30 p.m.  If you can't join the live presentation, the webinars will be recorded and archived for later listening. You do not need to be a member of a community. There is no cost other than your own time to sign on and participate.
Webinars are covered under the Creative Commons license, so the basic principle is open sharing. KM@KSU aims to follow knowledge management ideas and share what we've learned so we can advance the profession.
We look forward to hearing your suggestions for presentations and look forward to growing the community across economic sectors, across different types of organizations and across the globe.

 on Thursday, February 21 at noon EST (</span><a href="http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/fixedtime.html?msg=KM%40KSU&#43;Webinar&amp;iso=20130221T12&amp;p1=415&amp;ah=1&amp;am=30">http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/fixedtime.html?msg=KM%40KSU&#43;Webinar&amp;iso=20130221T12&amp;p1=415&amp;ah=1&amp;am=30</a><span style="font-size:12.0pt;font-family:&quot;Times New Roman&quot;,&quot;serif&quot;">).
 &nbsp;This opening webinar, hosted by Goodyear Professor Dr. Denise Bedford, will introduce the series format.&nbsp;
<br>
<br>
Kent State defines knowledge management broadly to include: knowledge strategy and leadership, intellectual capital, knowledge economies, the economics of information, innovation, collaboration and communities, communication and culture, knowledge technologies,
 knowledge architecture, knowledge asset management, organizational learning, knowledge elicitation and knowledge representation.<o:p></o:p></span></p>
<p class="MsoNormal" style="margin-bottom:12.0pt"><span style="font-size:12.0pt;font-family:&quot;Times New Roman&quot;,&quot;serif&quot;">Knowledge management is a practical discipline, and knowledge managers tend to only come together to talk about broad areas of KM at conferences
 or talk in small groups at our economic sectors or within our own communities.&nbsp; The purpose of these weekly KM@KSU webinars is to broaden the dialog on topics related to knowledge management.<o:p></o:p></span></p>
<p class="MsoNormal" style="margin-bottom:12.0pt"><span style="font-size:12.0pt;font-family:&quot;Times New Roman&quot;,&quot;serif&quot;">Any topic, whether practical or theoretical, that touches on any of these basic areas is welcome in the webinars.&nbsp; The KM@KSU series is launching
 with some invited presenters to get the series started.&nbsp; Hopefully, the series will continue indefinitely through broad participation from the knowledge management community.&nbsp; A webinar will be offered anytime there is an interest.<o:p></o:p></span></p>
<p class="MsoNormal" style="margin-bottom:12.0pt"><span style="font-size:12.0pt;font-family:&quot;Times New Roman&quot;,&quot;serif&quot;">If you'd like to submit an idea for a webinar, please go to our website (</span><a href="http://kmatksu.iwiki.kent.edu/Submit&#43;Presentations&#43;Request"><span style="font-size:12.0pt;font-family:&quot;Times New Roman&quot;,&quot;serif&quot;">http://kmatksu.iwiki.kent.edu/Submit&#43;Presentations&#43;Request</span></a><span style="font-size:12.0pt;font-family:&quot;Times New Roman&quot;,&quot;serif&quot;">)
 and submit your own topic or recommend a speaker or a topic you'd like to hear about.&nbsp; We strongly encourage students to present their work through this series. We will do our best to accommodate suggestions.
<o:p></o:p></span></p>
<p class="MsoNormal" style="margin-bottom:12.0pt"><span style="font-size:12.0pt;font-family:&quot;Times New Roman&quot;,&quot;serif&quot;">Webinars will be offered online Thursdays at noon and will typically run until 1:30 p.m.&nbsp; If you can&#8217;t join the live presentation, the webinars
 will be recorded and archived for later listening. You do not need to be a member of a community. There is no cost other than your own time to sign on and participate.
<o:p></o:p></span></p>
<p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size:12.0pt;font-family:&quot;Times New Roman&quot;,&quot;serif&quot;">Webinars are covered under the Creative Commons license, so the basic principle is open sharing. KM@KSU aims to follow knowledge management ideas and share what we&#8217;ve
 learned so we can advance the profession. <o:p></o:p></span></p>
<p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size:12.0pt;font-family:&quot;Times New Roman&quot;,&quot;serif&quot;">We look forward to hearing your suggestions for presentations and look forward to growing the community across economic sectors, across different types of organizations
 and across the globe. <o:p></o:p></span></p>

CHAPEL HILL - Dr. Diane Kelly, associate professor at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill's School of Information and Library Science (SILS), has been selected to receive the prestigious British Computer Society (BCS) BCS Information Retrieval Specialist Group (BCS IRSG) Karen Spärck-Jones Award 2012. The award will be presented in Moscow during the annual European Conference on Information Retrieval 2013 held March 24-28.
The BCS/BCS-IRSG created the annual award to honor and commemorate Karen Spärck Jones, a champion of bringing women into the world of computing. Her main research interests focused on information retrieval (IR) and natural language processing. Passionate about her goal, she once said, "My slogan is: 'Computing is too important to be left to men. I think women bring a different perspective to computing; they are more thoughtful and less inclined to go straight for technical fixes. My belief is that, intellectually, computer science is fascinating - you're trying to make things that don't exist."
According to the BCS/BCS-IRSG Web site, the award is meant to "encourage and promote talented researchers who have endeavoured to advance our understanding of Information Retrieval and/or Natural Language Processing with significant experimental contributions."
"In making the BCS/ BCS IRSG Karen Spärck-Jones Award for 2012, the Panel strongly recognizes that Diane has made important contributions to:
"The analysis of information seeking behaviors, and to the development of new experimental methods and systems to support information seeking and analysis.
"Diane has made several other important contributions to user modeling using implicit indicators of relevance, the development and analysis of interfaces to elicit richer statements of interest, and new methodologies for designing and evaluating interactive retrieval systems. Her strong user-oriented work views users-as-people with cognitive tasks," said Ayse Goker, chair of the Award Panel and senior lecturer at the Department of Information Science, City University London, United Kingdom, and School of Computing, Robert Gordon University.
"I am extremely honored to have been selected for this award which is named for one of my information retrieval research heroines who made so many important contributions to IR," said Kelly. "All of these people [on the award panel] who I have admired for so long have chosen me as the recipient of this award. It is really unbelievable and moving."
The members of the Award Panel were (in alphabetical surname order):

ˇ         Pia Borlund, Royal School of Library and Information Science, Aalborg East, Denmark.

ˇ         Ann Copestake, Computer Laboratory, University of Cambridge, United Kingdom.

Over the past decade, a significant gap has emerged between the research and development in digital curation, on the one hand, and professional practices of archivists, librarians, and museum curators, on the other. There are now many viable applications, models, strategies, and standards for long-term care of digital objects. However, many institutions with a mandate to do this work are either unaware of the options or currently unable to evaluate and implement them. There is a need to test, refine and diffuse existing innovations into professional practice.

The Closing the Digital Curation Gap (CDCG) Symposium will address a variety of issues and initiatives related to digital curation capacity building.  This day-long event will explore continuing education and development of resources to guide professional in getting started in digital curation.

Speakers will report on a wide range of projects and professional development initiatives in the US and Europe.  Interactive sessions will provide the opportunity for audience members to share their own experiences, needs and expectations, as well as providing input on the activities and products presented by the speakers.

Date: Thursday, March 7th, 8:30 - 4:30
Location: Pleasants Room, Wilson Library, UNC-Chapel Hill
Cost: $25; Students $10
Lunch and Breaks Included

*       Scott Brandt, Associate Dean for Research, Purdue University Libraries

Dear Colleague,

I would like to inform you about our summer 2013 field school, the San Gemini Preservation Studies Program, now in its 14th year, which is dedicated to the preservation of cultural heritage and offers students the opportunity to study and travel in Italy. Our deadline for applying is March 15, 2013.

In particular, I would like to inform you about two courses we offer: one on paper restoration and a new program on book bindings restoration:

Introduction to the Restoration of Book Bindings in Italy:
May 26th – June 22nd
This course on the restoration and conservation of bindings and their structural features aims to give an overview of the field of book conservation looking at the book as a three-dimensional structure at the theoretical level as well as with hands-on experience. The course will introduce students to the history of book making, especially concentrating on production in the Western culture.

In the workshop students will have an opportunity to make four book facsimiles with various historic bindings using traditional materials and techniques and learn to analyze and document old books in terms of the structure, materials and state of conservation. They will also perform light preventive conservation including building various types of protective covers.

To learn more about this course, please review the syllabus, which you can visit our WEBSITE.

Introduction to Restoration of Paper in Books and Archival Documents:
July 7th – August 3rd
This course is an introduction to the restoration of paper in books, archival material and documents. It gives students an understanding of the nature of paper as a material, its history and the evolution of its use over time. The focus is on paper, as a support media for writing and printing, and two-dimensional documents. The course also familiarizes students with the structure of books and their bindings.

Besides studying the nature of the material, the course investigates the most common agents of deterioration and the various approaches to restoration of paper. Along with the theoretical lectures, the program includes hands-on workshops comprising: exercises in traditional ways of paper making; testing, analyzing and identifying types of paper, inks, paints, pigments and printing techniques; disassembling books, their bindings, and; exercises using different techniques of paper restoration.

The course will include a field project restoring paper documents from the San Gemini Historic Archives and a field trip to Fabriano. To learn more about this course, please review the syllabus, which you can visit our WEBSITE.

If you know any students, scholars, or others interested in this type of study, please inform them about our program. We would appreciate it if you could list our program on your organization's website as an available educational resource.

We have a 2013 flyer that you may wish to post on your department notice board or forward to interested parties. You can print this from our website, on our About Us page. Please let us know if you have any problem printing and we can email you the PDF.

Thank you very much.

Cordially, Max Cardillo
Director
San Gemini Preservation Studies Program

CHAPEL HILL - The Open Planets Foundation (OPF) has welcomed two new affiliate organizations to its membership: Portico, a digital preservation service, and the School of Information and Library Science (SILS) at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, a number one ranked school in the United States.
The OPF addresses core digital preservation challenges by engaging with its members and the community to support the development of practical and sustainable tools and services to ensure long-term access to digital content. Its mission is to ensure that its members around the world are able to meet their digital preservation challenges with a solution that is widely adopted and actively being practiced by national heritage organizations and beyond. The international foundation includes members from around the world and hosts a variety of conferences and events including webinars and hackathons.
"We are delighted these organizations have decided to join us," said Bram van der Werf, executive director of OPF. "Both organizations have a significant impact on the digital preservation practice on a global scale. The UNC brings expertise in research and education, and Portico for digital preservation services. As members of OPF, UNC and Portico will both play a major role in the further development of tools which are relevant for the OPF community."
Both Portico and SILS are enthusiastic to be a part of OPF.
"Portico values OPF's focus on practical solutions and its emphasis on a broad-based and active community of practise. We share OPF's belief that the digital preservation community as a whole benefits from the wide-spread sharing of experience, tools, and techniques" said Kate Wittenberg, managing director of Portico.
"I am very excited that SILS is joining the OPF and will be helping to extend the reach of the very successful OPF model and community into the US," said Christopher (Cal) Lee, associate professor at SILS.
SILS is the first iSchool to join the OPF, and Portico the first digital preservation service organization. The OPF now has three member organizations from the U.S.
The current list of members may be viewed at: http://openplanetsfoundation.org/members.

If you've thought about getting a master's degree to pursue a career in User Experience Design (UXD) but couldn't find time to get to class, you'll be happy to learn that you can now earn your degree COMPLETELY ONLINE from Kent State University.

User Experience Design (UXD) is offered as a 36-credit-hour concentration in Kent State University's Master of Science in Information Architecture and Knowledge Management (IAKM) program. Our graduates have gone on to successful careers at Google, American Greetings and Progressive Insurance, among many other major companies.

UX designers engage in a variety of design activities that help produce interfaces that users enjoy using and that also help organizations meet business goals. UXD addresses the structural, informational, psychological and emotional aspects of what makes a successful user interface, whether it's web, mobile, tablet or any other device.

Join us for a free interactive, online open house on Wednesday, Feb. 27, at noon to learn more about the degree program, course scheduling and career opportunities in this field. You'll hear from David Robins, Ph.D., concentration coordinator, and from Rachel Von Hendrix, a current student in the program. You'll also be able to ask questions in real time.

Register for the online open house at http://bit.ly/UXD-27feb2013. You'll receive a link to the webinar the day before the event. The session will be recorded and posted to our website for later viewing, if you are unable to attend the live presentation.

For more information about the UX program at Kent State, visit http://iakm.kent.edu/user-experience-design/.



All the best,

Flo

On behalf of Richard Counsil...
From: [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]> [mailto:[log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>] On Behalf Of Richard Counsil
Sent: Monday, February 25, 2013 9:57 AM
To: Allyson Carlyle
Subject: What WLA members need to know about the new Student Interest Group
 Hi WLA members,
 This is Richard Counsil your current iSchool Rep.
 I very gladly want to draw your attention to the Student Interest Group (SIG), one of the WLA's new IGs this year.
My hope is that SIG will be alluring to any member of the WLA, including WLA members attending iSchools other than the one at the UW. Nothing exclusive about it.
To give you a sense of the new IG's purpose, here are some of what I think are the most important things to know:
 SIG HIGHLIGHTS:

  1.  SIG is a effort to promote professional networking between iSchool students and the WLA community
  2.  It is an opportunity for iSchool students to gain momentum as active and long-term WLA members
  3.  It is a way for everyone in the WLA to more easily engage with iSchool students in events and planning
  4.  It is also a way for WLA members to draw on the enthusiasm and shape the potential of future librarians/library professionals
Please don't hesitate to email me with any questions. I will be promoting officer and event information soon!
 -Richard

PhD Scholarship: Be a part of creating the future of the information
professions - apply to become a La SCALA doctoral scholar. 

University of Arizona: School of Information Resources and Library Science

La SCALA: Latino Scholars Cambio Leadership Academy

The School of Information Resources and Library Science (SIRLS) at the
University of Arizona is recruiting Hispanic and Latino students to join its
doctoral program, La SCALA: Latino Scholars Cambio Leadership Academy, an
Institute for Museum and Library Science (IMLS) federally-funded program
that provides financial support to students of Hispanic and Latino heritage
who wish to pursue advanced degrees in Science, Technology, Engineering and
Mathematics (STEM). Recipients of La SCALA funding are referred to as "La
SCALA students." 

The Laura Bush 21st Century Librarian Program of the (IMLS) provides funding
for La SCALA students. La SCALA operates on the premise that individuals of
Hispanic and Latino backgrounds enjoy unique cultural experiences that
contribute to improving LIS education, while also helping to close the
educational gap between their underrepresented population in STEM fields and
their peers in similar fields. A particular focus of the program is to
assist students to identify how their research can be conducted in the
context of STEM, with the ultimate goal of placing these students in faculty
positions throughout the country. The program emphasizes the role of
academic identity and cultural competence in the intellectual and
professional development of doctoral students, while challenging
participants to step beyond their cultural, social and intellectual comfort
zones.

La SCALA students will be paired with a senior faculty member as the
student's intellectual mentor for the duration of the program, as well as
providing a cultural mentor and a group of peer mentors at the school.
Besides courses and research activity, La SCALA students will acquire the
intellectual and interpersonal skills necessary in their field of study
through a rigorous academic and research program.

Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics areas include but are not
limited to:
1) Biodiversity informatics;
2) STEM communication, with an emphasis in science data and communication;
3) Electronic publishing, with an emphasis on e-journals as media for
scholarly communication;
4) Knowledge management, with an emphasis on producing a
scholar/administrator;
5) Information ethics, with an emphasis on social justice;
6) Cognitive and affective computing, with an emphasis on decision support
systems.

The selected students will spend three years in active learning and
research, and at least one year of teaching and work experiences. Funding
may be provided for students who need a fourth year to complete the program.
At the University of Arizona, students will have opportunities to work with
researchers at iPlant Collaborative, the School of Geography and
Development, the School of Information Science, Technology and Arts (SISTA),
and/or many field stations such as Biosphere II and the National Optical
Astronomy Observatory (NOAO), depending on the student's academic interests.
La SCALA students also may participate in national research projects with
SIRLS faculty, including the Biodiversity Heritage Library and the
Encyclopedia of Life.

La SCALA students will receive tuition and fee waivers, stipends, health
insurance, a laptop computer, and funding to attend one professional
conference per year beginning in the second year in the program. La SCALA
students will spend one semester of residence with a parallel cohort of
students at the University of Tennessee, School of Information Sciences. A
cohort of University of Tennessee students will likewise spend a semester at
the University of Arizona.
