Libraries in the Course Management System: Best Practices and New Directions Discussion/Interest group Las Vegas Convention Center
N263C
Description :

Course Management Systems (CMS), such as Blackboard, Sakai, Canvas Instructure, and Moodle are ubiquitous in the classroom environment. These systems are bridging the gap between traditional, hybrid, and fully online classes, as most academic institutions have adopted the use of a CMS across a wide spectrum: from serving to keep track of administrative processes, such as grading and attendance, to being the main tool for organizing and communicating course information for both faculty and students. Libraries have responded by implementing a variety of services in the CMS, including LibGuides, chat widgets, discovery search tools, and more. Three academic library panelists will highlight their experiences and efforts to integrate research services into the CMS. We will engage the audience in a group discussion of best practices, assessment, and project management tips for implementing a robust library presence in the CMS environment. The attendees will benefit from exploring the challenges and advantages of integrating library services into university-wide systems and platforms.

11:30am - 12:00pm
Ignite Saturday Session: Not the Same Old Story Program Las Vegas Convention Center
N239/241
Description :

A person’s first experiences of the library often include sitting down to story time at the public library and being shown the wonder of books by a sweet and enthusiastic librarian. This creates fond memories and sets the ground for future literacy, but can that first magical experience be duplicated when a child becomes a college student? This session reexamines well-known best practices of children’s librarians in the context of academic library instruction.

But what do toddlers and puppets have to do with college students and databases? Although the content and aims of bibliographic instruction and story time are certainly different, in both cases the librarian acts as an entry point to their collections. For many first-year undergraduates, the academic library is a mysterious place. An instruction session may be the student’s first -- or only -- introduction to the resources available to them. Instruction librarians can encourage the joy of discovery or...simply lapse into the drudgery of demonstrating click after click.

Attendees of this session will learn how to incorporate techniques from story time in order to keep audience attention, explain new concepts, and manage difficult patrons in the library classroom. While not all story time practices translate directly -- most 18-year-olds would balk at singing a welcome song as they enter the computer lab -- the underlying values of play and multi-sensory engagement can be adapted effectively. Approaches may include using simple games, repetitive and cumulative instructions, and encouraging audience participation, as well as surprising uses of voice, movement, and interaction. Rather than prescribe specific activities, this session encourages attendees to adapt these strategies to suit their own practice. Keeping story time -- or instruction -- fresh makes it easier to share our enthusiasm with our patrons, and to build a positive foundation for information literacy.
