Digitizing Hidden Collections: Success Stories from Small and Medium-sized Digitization Projects

Although large-scale initiatives receive the lion’s share of the attention when we talk about digitization projects, countless small and medium-sized digitization projects are providing invaluable access to hidden collections from North American libraries, archives, and museums. Spurred by the OITP Perspectives paper, “Digitizing Hidden Collections in Public Libraries,” this 90-minute webinar is aimed at sharing success stories, best practices, and the lessons learned to encourage other successful projects.

Panelists include:
• Gwen Glazer from Cornell University Library, 2010 Google Fellow with ALA, and another of “Digitizing Hidden Collections in Public Libraries” (www.ala.org/ala/aboutala/offices/oitp/pu..._perspectives_ju.pdf)
• Jason Kucsma from the Metropolitan New York Library Council and co-editor of “Digitization in the Real World”
• Natalie Milbrodt, Project Manager for Queens Memory Project, will discuss her recent work on a collaborative digitization project
• Beth Goble and Devra Dragos, Nebraska Library Commission, will discuss The Nebraska Memories Project that provides access to important collections held by libraries and historical societies in Nebraska
• Erin Kinney, Wyoming State Library, will discuss the Wyoming Newspaper Project
• Larry Carey, Tompkins County Public Library, will discuss the library's local-history digitization initiative

Panelists will address the following topics:
• Real-life, practical strategies for initiating and managing projects and how those strategies could be applied more broadly
• Where to find best practices for a variety of digital project needs (conversion, metadata standards, storage, access etc.)
• How to create a successful collaborative project between multiple institutions
• Short survey of initiatives aimed at providing increased access to collections (via portals, directories, etc...)

Innovative Use of Skill-based Volunteers in Public Libraries

Wednesday, October 19, 2011 ♦ 2 pm Eastern / 11 am Pacific ♦ 60 min.

There is a growing number of younger members of our communities (the "net-generation") who are highly skilled with technology and the internet but view local public libraries as nice community amenities with little relevance to their "tip of the finger" world of information. There is also a notable increase in semi-retired, computer literate, actively engaged Baby Boomers. These two groups can be tapped to become the new volunteer base for libraries. Members of the net-generation will volunteer if they can use their expertise and professional skills to make a difference. The Baby Boomers will volunteer if they believe the experience will be intellectually challenging. By engaging these "new volunteers," libraries are helping to build vibrant sustainable community support for their library. This webinar identifies the critical issues and plan of action necessary to engage skilled-based library community volunteers. WebJunction is pleased to host this webinar in collaboration with ALA TechSource, moderated by Eileen Dumas and Preston Driggers, co-authors of Managing Library Volunteers. Panelists include Gail Zachariah, head of youth and community services, Keene Public Library (NH); and Sonja Plummer-Morgan, director, Mark & Emily Turner Memorial Library (ME).

Teaming Up with Teens @ Your Library

Tuesday, October 25, 2011 ♦ 2 pm Eastern / 11 am Pacific ♦ 60 min.
What is the absolute best avenue to getting teens involved and engaged at your school or public library? How can you encourage them to be peer reader advisors and library advocates in the community? Ultimately, if you want to encourage your teens to become lifelong readers, learners, and library users/supporters—and possibly even choose library work for their future career path—there is no better way to go than offering opportunities for active and involved teen library participation. In this webinar, you will explore ways teens can take part in your library, such as advisory groups, volunteering, short-term projects that use teen's special skills, and partnering with adults. You’ll also get tips on planning, organizing, conducting, and evaluating teen participation. When you team up with teens at your library, it's win-win! WebJunction is pleased to host this webinar in collaboration with the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA). 

Moving from Surviving to Thriving: Highlights from Project Compass

Thursday, October 27, 2011 ♦ 2 pm Eastern / 11 am Pacific ♦ 90 min.
It's been a whirlwind year as Project Compass worked with library staff across the country to help them amplify their services to provide patrons with the skills they need to move from surviving to thriving, especially in a turbulent economy. Join the Project Compass team and special guests as we review the highlights from the staff training workshops and from the actions libraries have taken as a result of the project. We'll look at successful strategies and discuss what lies ahead for libraries at the hub of vibrant 21st century communities.

2011 Public Library Funding & Technology Access Study: Results, Trends, and Resources

Tuesday, November 1, 2011 ♦ 2 pm Eastern / 11 am Pacific ♦ 60 min.
Over 8,400 urban, suburban, and rural libraries participated in the 2011 Public Library Funding & Technology Access Study, the largest and longest-running study of Internet connectivity in U.S. public libraries. Key findings include:
•70% of libraries report increased use of public access computers, while at the same time, over 76% report an insufficient number of public computers to meet demand.
•65% of libraries report that they are the only source of free public access to computers and the Internet in their communities.
•67% of libraries offer access to e-books.
•72% of libraries report that staff help patrons complete online job applications.
•16% of libraries report decreased hours of operation. This translates to lost hours at more than 2,600 branches.

In this webinar co-sponsored by ALA TechSource, the ALA Office for Research & Statistics, and WebJunction, you will learn how to interpret the data and emerging trends; access new advocacy and marketing tools including state profiles, issue briefs, and PR templates; and use the data to make the case for your library with elected officials and community stakeholders. Take the new survey now!
Presented by: John Bertot, Co-Director, Information Policy & Access Center, University of Maryland; Judy Hoffman, Project Manager, American Library Association, Office for Research and Statistics; and Peggy Rudd, Director, Texas State Library and Archives Commission

"Wow, That's Cool! What is it?"

Thursday, November 10, 2011 ♦ 2 pm Eastern / 11 am Pacific ♦ 60 min.

The Library of Virginia spent part of the last 12 months touring the Commonwealth with a van full of technology toys: e-readers, iPads, pocket video cameras and more, thanks to a grant from IMLS. This webinar, presented by Cindy Church of LVA and her Wow That's Cool trainer Lisa R. Varga, will describe how the project evolved, the response of library staff who had never seen or touched the technology patrons were asking about, things they’d do exactly the same next time, and things they'd never do again. Join us and learn about the program from several perspectives: the administrator, the trainer, and the conference attendee.


Presented by: Cindy S. Church, Continuing Education Consultant, Library of Virginia and Lisa R. Varga, Trainer and Executive Director of the Virginia Library Association.

Thursday, Oct 20, 2011
Start Time: Pacific - Noon, Mountain - 1:00 PM, Central - 2:00 PM, Eastern - 3:00 PM


Presenter: : Kelli Ham

In the past several years, two major phenomena have dramatically changed the way people find and share information: mobile devices and social media. It is no secret that patrons are using smart phones and mobile devices for much more than making phone calls. For health information, these devices have become pocket medical encyclopedias, fitness coaches, nutrition calculators, medication reminders, and much more.

Studies report that people are increasingly sharing personal health information on the Internet. Librarians are hard-wired to look for authoritative resources; but can user-contributed health information be trusted? With thousands of health-related apps and sites available, how is it possible to sort the good from the bad?

This webinar will focus on:

• the use of mobile devices and social networking for finding and sharing health information
• the implication of using these devices for library staff
• the benefits and issues around health-related social networking sites
• examples of well-designed, safe sites
• quality health apps and mobile sites, evaluation tips, and resources to point
At the end of this one-hour webinar, participants will:
• Be aware of the landscape of mobile devices and understand the differences between apps and mobile sites
• Be able to evaluate and guide patrons to quality health-related content for mobile devices
• Be familiar with the benefits and caveats of social networking for health information
• Be able to incorporate knowledge of technology and electronic resources into services for patrons

This webinar will be of interest to public library staff, including reference librarians or reference desk staff, adult and teen services librarians, and staff from organizations who provide health information to consumers and members of the public.
Webinars are free of charge and registration is only done on the day of the event on the WebEx server. No passwords are required.
