Grow Forward: Professional Education Needs in the 21st Century Program Las Vegas Convention Center
S219
Description :

Twenty-first century libraries, archives, and museums (LAMs) face tremendous changes in how they select, acquire, preserve and provide access to content, especially born digital materials. Websites and social media, content management systems and online exhibits, digital preservation and forensics: all these must-have features are accelerating the pace of change. LAM professionals need to acquire twenty-first century skill-sets to respond to these changes, yet many of our newest graduates report that they cannot find jobs, in some cases because they lack traditional skills. In this session, we will look at educational expectations and opportunities for new and seasoned professionals, including certification, credentialing, badging, and portfolios and how professionals and employers can be confident that a resume accurately reflects real-world skills. We will review the ways that traditional GLAM education is adapting to new demands and discuss additional areas in which improvement is needed.

Conversation Starter: Data for Librarians Program Las Vegas Convention Center
N239/241
Description :

In an era of tight budgets and finite resources libraries are using data to make decisions and justify the spending of time and money. Many librarians don’t come from a data heavy background and are unsure of how to approach collecting the data they need or evaluating the data they already have. You don’t have to be a math whiz to work with data! This session will give a librarian friendly crash course in what data is, how to collect reliable data, and how to interpret it.
