Date & Time: August 25th, 2017 12:00 PM.

Presenters:

* Suzanne Flint: Library Programs Consultant, California State Library. 

* Chris Boggiano: VersaMe, Inc.

Description: Please note: This webinar relates to a California State Library grant project. It will be of interest primarily to California public libraries.

As part of the California State Library’s 2017/18 ELF grant, five library jurisdictions will be selected from a mix of rural, suburban, and urban locales to receive a supply of Starlings – a wearable tech device – as well as staff training and support to pilot various approaches to sharing and/or loaning the devices to families. This webinar will provide an overview about this pilot Starling project and explain the process for how your library jurisdiction can apply to be one of the five pilot libraries.

Words Matter: Libraries understand the power of words to help develop young minds, and they’ve been encouraging parents to talk, read and sing to their children for some time. Now the Starling can help reinforce these efforts! In this age of busy lives and smartphones, most children aren’t getting the exposure to words they need to reach their full potential. With the Starling, parents can SEE the power of their words. Libraries all over the country have discovered the Starling as a powerful new parent support tool that can show parents they truly are their child’s first teacher.

What is the Starling: The Starling is a wearable word counter that picks up vocal sound waves (without recording), and parses out the number of words a child is hearing. Those numbers are instantly updated on a parent’s smartphone app, and on their library’s Starling Dashboard. It can: Demonstrate to parents the power of words, and inspire them to sustain and expand their early learning and literacy efforts, and Scaffold your parenting community’s focus on talking, reading and singing.

Come join us to explore the possibilities for sharing and loaning these devices with your families!

IFLA believes that the challenges facing the library field from ever-increasing globalization can only be met and overcome by an inclusive, global response from a united library field. By joining us for this webinar, you can participate in this global discussion to identify future challenges and opportunities facing the library field and help to prioritize actions that a united and connected library field can take.

The Association for Rural and Small Libraries, in collaboration with WebJunction, invites rural and small libraries to join this highly interactive webinar discussion to voice your opinions and contribute to shaping a unique and comprehensive IFLA Global Vision. In preparation, you may want to reflect on your work in the library field: Why do you think your work is important? How do you see your work in the future? You may also refer to IFLA’s Trend Report as well as other relevant publications about libraries and the trends and developments affecting them.

“Effective and Valuable Outreach: Aligning Activities to Goal-Driven Assessment”

Date & Time: July 19, 2017 -- 2pm Eastern (11am Pacific | 12pm Mountain | 1pm Central) 

Presenters:

Kristen Mastel is an outreach and instruction librarian at the University of Minnesota. She received her Masters of Library Science from Indiana University, and her undergraduate Bachelor of Arts from the University of Minnesota- Morris. Her research areas of interest include instruction, information literacy, outreach and instructional design. Kristen is a Past President of the Minnesota Library Association. She also is President-Elect of the United States Agricultural Information Network.

Shannon Farrell is the Natural Resources Librarian at the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities. She holds an MS in Library and Information Science from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and an MS in Environmental Studies from the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow, Scotland. She previously worked at Colorado State University as the Agricultural and Biological Sciences Librarian. Prior to earning her MLIS, she spent over ten years working on scientific research projects related to sustainable agriculture, genetically modified organisms, animal behavior, wildlife conservation, and invasive species. Her research interests span numerous areas, including outreach assessment, video games and gaming technology, and salaries and status of library workers

Description: Outreach is a facet of many of our jobs. Over time, library job descriptions have been adjusted to include outreach, whether this includes targeting departments, student populations, or the surrounding community. Libraries have attempted to connect with their users through a variety of activities and strategies. However, how do we ensure our outreach activities are impactful? Assessment has also become more important over time, since many library budgets have shrunk and we are often asked to do more with less. It is imperative that we can justify the amount of time, energy, and money required for outreach activities. Determining in advance what impact we want to make dictates what types of events we hold. Further, better assessment leads to a better understanding of the impact of our activities. Much of the library literature shares strategies for reaching out to campus communities; however, there is a lack of discussion around goal-oriented activities and if these activities reached their goals through assessment.

In this session, learn how to write SMART (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, and Time-Bound) outreach goals that are tied to your institutional mission and how to apply various assessment techniques that will evaluate if your goals are being met. Assessment techniques will address various factors, including amount of time and/or funding required, amount of staffing involved, and type of data produced (qualitative or quantitative). Attendees will also learn about the limitations of each assessment method. Participants will be asked to share their previous experience with goal-writing and assessment of outreach and will work through case studies that illustrate a particular scenario with concrete goals and ways to accurately assess the identified outreach activity. Attendees will be provided materials to bring back to their institution to apply what they learned using a previous or upcoming local outreach event.
