Conversation Starter: Storytime: Not Just Reading Out Loud Program Las Vegas Convention Center
N239/241
Description :

Storytime presenters can get caught up in books—we’re librarians, after all! But reading is only 20% of the ECRR2 early literacy practices; the initiative asks us to sing, talk, play, and write as well. That means we should be spending at least as much time planning our songs and our play, letter knowledge, and response activities as we do planning our books. Join the Storytime Underground Joint Chiefs to learn about great storytime resources and share your best practices for widening parent and child horizons when it comes to early literacy. Parachutes, felt boards, and beyond!

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.

Scholarly Communications Interest Group Forum/Update/Assembly Las Vegas Convention Center
N260
Description :

We will be featuring two presentations:

Scholarly Communication Express

Sherri L. Barnes
Scholarly Communication Program Coordinator
University of California

Presentation abstract:

UCSB Library's Scholarly Communication Program just launched Scholarly Communication Express, a service that allows campus departments to request 15-minute presentations, to be delivered at department meetings, on trends in academic publishing. Presentations topics include altmetrics; creating data management plans for the social sciences and another for the sciences; Creative Commons licenses; eScholarship, UC's institutional repository; EZID accounts; the NIH Public Access Policy; the UC Open Access Policy; and understanding article publication agreements. Anyone on campus can use the online form at the easy to remember URL - http://www.library.ucsb.edu/15 - to request a presentation. Personal, one-on-one, consultations can also be requested. The service formalizes work the Scholarly Communication Group had already been doing informally, as a result of outreach and old fashion liaison work. Having a flyer and a webpage makes it easier to market the service to a larger audience, track requests and measure our success. The service is designed to reach an audience that rarely has time to think about, let alone change, the way they navigate the scholarly communication system and manage their intellectual property, but wants to know what's going on.

New England Collaborative Data Management Curriculum (NECDMC): An educational program and service for best practices in research data management (RDM)

Regina Raboin
Data Management Services Group Coordinator
Tufts University

Presentation abstract:

Driven by external and internal institutional needs surrounding research data management, new, revised and expanded roles for librarians have evolved and progressive services are being implemented to assist their faculty and institutions with meeting these needs.

One new role for librarians is to teach research data management (RDM) to undergraduate and graduate students and researchers. Five libraries in the New England region developed a unique online, case-based, modular course to teach RDM. Librarians across the US piloted and evaluated this course in different settings.

This presentation will discuss the development and piloting of the open source curriculum, New England Collaborative Data Management Curriculum (NECDMC), information on how the curriculum materials can be used and customized, along with how building institutional and regional partnerships leads to successful curriculum implementation, compliance with federal mandates and best practices in research data management will also be included. Additionally, the presentation will highlight recent "Train-the-Trainer" workshops and current/future pilots of the curriculum.

The presentations will be followed by a brief business meeting.
