TAKE THE LEADERSHIP SURVEY HERE

The 21st century has brought about a shift from information as collected, cataloged, and curated to information that is ubiquitous, insidious, and continuously transforming. The trends of digitization, open access, scholarly repositories, changing publishing models, copyright rules, etc. are all areas where librarians can show themselves as the experts they are; not only responding to these challenges, but shaping the future of how these and other opportunities are addressed. This two-part session will serve to inspire and show how librarians can be leaders.

Makerspaces in Academic Libraries
Makerspaces in Academic Libraries

Community Notes


As our nation continues to accelerate towards new innovation based economic models, our existing institutions will adapt to support this transition. Learn about the Hackerspace and Makerspace movements that are revolutionizing civic engagement to create grassroots communities through experiential learning and peer to peer mentorship. In this presentation, you will find out how to re-purpose underutilized space in your library to attract new patrons and supporters. With the right kind of people supporting hacker/maker spaces you can branch out into event planning for the rest of the community and still support the mission and purpose of libraries in the school system and local connectors.

Creating a Just Community

Community Notes


Even without the upheaval of events like those in Ferguson, Missouri, librarians can use our libraries to create just communities. This session's takeaways are two-fold: 1. Ideas, ideas, and more ideas for all types of libraries invested in social justice, and 2. Actual plans to implement some of those ideas.

This session will use padlet.com as a platform for recording ideas. You do not need any electronic devices during the session, though they are welcome. If you plan to bring a laptop or tablet and want to explore the platform in advance, there is a test wall for playing around with here.

Outreach Begins at Home: Librarians in the Archive

Community Notes

What do technical services, collection development, digital library, instructional or reference librarians know about resources in special collections? How can we have conversations to share our passion for unique and rare materials and to explore how our collections and our methodologies can be of use to them and our joint patrons and donors?

We will develop pitches in breakout groups and discuss them as a whole; then break out again to discuss strategies around participant-supplied case studies for reaching colleagues (librarians) who may be terrified/bored/stumped by the idea of special collections; and wrap up with a larger group discussion of our findings.

Making Music and Music as Making
Making Music and Music as Making

Community Notes


Many who do not identify themselves as musicians still interact with music through making mix tapes, burning CD mixes, and creating playlists, while musicians often don't think of their creative output as "making" because their creations in the digital world often exist only at the file level or someone else is actually doing the physical making for them (a record label, a pressing plant, etc.). At NC State we attempt to bridge multimedia making with newer "maker" elements through digital and analog media production workshops that result in physical mix tapes (on cassettes!), Arduino workshops that result in new instruments that can be recorded and added to existing songs, basic audio production workshops that lead to Makerspace made lasercut records from original, in-library recorded material, and more. We will discuss all of these, set up and play with some of the technology, and show how these elements can be used to help patrons both make music and use music to make.

Instructional Technologist or Librarian?
Instructional Technologist or Librarian?

Community Notes


As more and more institutions hire Instructional Technology Librarians, there are different descriptions, roles, and duties that these librarians fill. For a long time, instructional technology resided within an Information Technology Services department, or even through a Faculty Development program. But how does the role of instructional technologist and librarian overlap? How have librarians adopted the role of instructional technologist (making them instructional technology librarians), and how will this evolve as more and more librarians, faculty, students, and staff incorporate technology into their teaching and learning? This session will explore these questions and look to discuss some of the challenges associated with walking the line between technologist and librarian.
