Creating a Collaborative Culture [$] Preconference/Institute Las Vegas Convention Center
N256
Description :

Rewards or threats. Our brains look for them five times a second. That's the root of many difficult workplace situations. Come learn the transformative power of reframing failure, the true meaning of "yes and" and the kinds of listening that changes lives. In this session, we'll use applied improvisation to go from passive-aggressive to assertive, from blame to "I'm game." Instead of hearing, "It's not my job!", you'll start hearing, "How do we do it?"

Facilitating Teaching and Learning through the integration of Library Services and Course Management Exhibitor session Las Vegas Convention Center
S232
Description :

The changing ecosystem for scholarly communication drives libraries to look for new ways in which they can leverage their knowledge and expertise to better serve their communities and also to demonstrate value to their institutions. A tighter integration of library services with teaching and learning environments enables the library to be more visible to faculty and students, to optimize the use of the content it acquires and licenses, and to make informed decisions when developing its physical, digitized, and electronic collections.

The session will discuss the integration between course management systems, discovery systems, and library management systems. It will focus on cross-system workflows and optimal user experience for all stakeholders—faculty, students, and library staff. The work done by a Northwestern University Library team to integrate their Blackboard course management system and the Primo discovery system will be described.
