Self-Directed Achievement: if you give library staff an hour

Date & Time: 07 February 2013, 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM Eastern Standard Time [UTC -5]

Description: "Set one training goal each week achievable in one hour." This simple directive was given to every staff member of one Utah library in September 2011. The result just one year later? A sustainable, positive culture transformation. The mechanism, called “Self-Directed Achievement,” is a consistent, agile, individualized approach to staff development in a climate of constant change. It champions the basic library principle of lifelong learning. It is achievable for every individual with any level of expertise. And its impact will ripple through your organization from the staff work room to public lounge areas. Following this webinar, you will understand the model, mechanics, individual accountability, and supervisory responsibility involved in this remarkable method...and you’ll want to do it too.

Presenters: From Tooele City Library (UT), Jami Carter, Director; Steve Peay, Library Supervisor; and Rachel Gull, Library Supervisor.

How Libraries can meet the Evolving Needs of Patrons in the Digital Age

Date & Time: 13 February 2013, 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM Eastern Standard Time [UTC -5]  

Description: Lee Rainie, Director of the Pew Research Center’s Internet & American Life Project, will be joined by digital and library experts to discuss the findings of the Project’s most recent report, Library Services in the Digital Age, which asked a representative sample of Americans what types of services they value in their library and what types of services they would like to see their library start to offer. These findings are critical to informing the conversation on how to advance change in libraries in order to keep them relevant and responsive to communities in our increasingly digital age.

The Pew Research Center is a nonpartisan, nonprofit "fact tank" that provides information on the issues, attitudes and trends shaping America and the world. With support from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the Pew Internet & American Life Project is conducting research that explores how people get and share information in the digital age and what that means for the role of libraries in their communities. The research looks at different demographic patterns of technology and library use.

Presenter: Lee Rainie, Director of the Pew Research Center’s Internet & American Life Project and other digital and library experts.

OCLC Webinar

Are We Reconfigured Yet? US Research Libraries - Priorities, Trends, Directions

Date & Time: 14 February 2013, 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM Eastern Standard Time [UTC -5]

Description: In this webinar, OCLC Research Library Partnership Vice President Jim Michalko will share a synthesis of the priorities and trends affecting US research libraries in the twenty-first century, the directions they are taking, and the ways in which OCLC Research seeks to respond to these concerns and advance the desired directions. This synthesis is based on a series of interviews that Jim conducted with the senior staff at more than 65 OCLC Research Library Partner institutions, as well as surveys by OCLC staff and visits to institutions by OCLC field staff. Jim observed a surprisingly strong convergence of concern around a small number of issues despite differences in library size, constituencies, funding and geography. This suggests that a new pattern of investment has begun that will result in a new portfolio of library services. The exact service offerings vary from institution to institution as they take shape through close attention to and engagement with the local institutional mission and the needs of the local constituency.

OCLC Research Library Partners are invited to register* to join us for 60 minutes of presentation and discussion in this free webinar. Partners are also welcome to suggest specific areas in which OCLC Research could usefully devote effort to this shared problem space.

A recording of this webinar will be made publicly available on our website, on YouTube and in iTunes in March.

Carterette Series Webinars (GLA)

Building a Research Commons in a University Library: Connecting Scholars with Technology, Expertise, and Each Other

Date & Time: February 13, 2013, 2:00pm to 3:00pm Eastern Time

Description: Emory’s Robert W. Woodruff Library opened the Research Commons in the Fall of 2011. The 5,000 square foot space is dedicated to graduate students and faculty who are engaged in collaborative scholarly work which takes advantage of digital technology. This presentation will focus on the mission, the space, and the way the Research Commons takes advantage of its place in the library: the Research Commons provides neutral space where interdisciplinary groups of scholars can work collaboratively. Almost all of the furniture is mobile, enabling users to configure the work areas to suit their needs. This open design also allows scholars to see what others are working on and to be inspired by what they see. These unplanned and serendipitous encounters, along with more formal events, allow the Research Commons to establish and nurture an interdisciplinary community of scholars interested in digital scholarship. Housed within the Research Commons is the Mellon Funded Digital Scholarship Commons (DiSC). The mission of DiSC is to work with scholars whether they require instruction on simple tools or need help planning and executing a larger project.

Presenter: Stewart Varner, he is the Digital Scholarship Coordinator at Emory University's Robert W. Woodruff Library. He manages the team of the Digital Scholarship Commons who help scholars incorporate technology and library resources into their research. Stewart earned his Ph.D. in Americna Studies at Emory and his MLIS degree from the University of North Texas.

Designing Interactive Library Spaces

Date & Time: February 13, 2013, 3:15pm to 4:15pm Eastern Time

Description: What does it mean to Evolve? Why do Libraries need to Evolve? Through this webinar, Dave Hesse and Brian Pichman of the Evolve Project will discuss the importance of redesigning library spaces to make them more interactive and collaborative. The Evolve Project is a collaborative platform that aims to change the way people see libraries through the injection of technology that fosters collaboration and exploration. These technologies include laser tag, Sphero Balls, Sifteo Cubes, interactive Legos, and so much more! Learn techniques for how to innovate. In today's times, libraries must become the frontier for interaction and engagement while enhancing their environments to include new technology, open spaces, and unique programs to pull in patrons.

Presenters: Brian Pichman and Dave Hesse are both passionate about libraries and were formerly employed for 8 years to a small rural public library before branching out to help other libraries world wide. They now run the Evolve Project, an initiative to get libraries into the 21st century and beyond.
