Print Archive Network (PAN) & Looking to the Future of Shared Print Las Vegas Convention Center
N262
Description :

Building upon the experiences of current shared print initiatives, Maine Shared Collections Strategy (MSCS) and the Center for Research Libraries (CRL) are co-sponsoring a session exploring how the shared print landscape will likely develop in years to come. The session will act as both a call for future action for existing shared print initiatives and as a good starting place for those debating whether shared print is a good fit for their institution. There will be opportunities for attendees to share their own experiences of managing print collections. The session will follow a PAN forum update (9:00-9:45 am).

More than Fun in the Sun! Building Collaborative Relationships and Using Real Data to Increase Summer Learning Program Las Vegas Convention Center
N262
Description :

A library summer reading program can only accomplish so much on its own. Learn how to build collaborative relationships with your school district and community partners that turn shared purpose into shared power! Get real data that increases real outcomes, and yields shared indicators of progress! Working collaboratively, libraries, schools, and community partners can build a learning continuum that progresses children effortlessly from schoolroom to summer learning and back to school again. Collaborative relationships can market and advocate more effectively, share funding, build data (with programs like Evanced Summer Reader and access to school data) and reduce summer learning loss.

Makerspace and Digital Badging: New Avenues To Help Students Show What They Know Program Las Vegas Convention Center
N252
Description :

There are many pathways to learning and learning is happening everywhere: schools, libraries, clubs, community centers, homes, and religious organizations. A makerspace culture, one that emphasizes creation over memorization, open-source sharing over siloed knowledge, and process over product, gives new ways for students to explore concepts and show what they know. Coupled with makerspace culture is a movement to flexibly acknowledge growth: digital or open badges. In this session, we’ll talk about budget-friendly school library makerspaces, strategies for promoting healthy makerspace culture, and validating growth via digital badges that go far beyond the sticker charts of the past.

College Readiness Dialogues: Together We Succeed! Program Las Vegas Convention Center
N264
Description :

In 2010 Blue Valley High School and Rockhurst University co-hosted a College Readiness Dialogue for high school, college, and university librarians in the Kansas City metro area. The objective was to provide an open, relaxed, and informal dialogue between high school and academic librarians on students’ college readiness. The event drew professionals from public, private, and alternative schools in both Kansas and Missouri. This session will discuss how we put this together, the results, where we’re going with it in the future, and how you can organize this type of gathering in your own area!

Stepping Up: Providing Effective Library and Information Services, Program and Resources to Students With Disabilities Program Las Vegas Convention Center
S224
Description :

Research has demonstrated that school librarians often lack the skills and knowledge to effectively design, implement and evaluate services, resources and programs for students with a range of physical, neuro-developmental and/or learning disabilities in their schools. This session will be led by four distinguished university faculty with different perspectives and areas of expertise: disabilities law, leadership and advocacy, communication disorders, and motivation and instructional design. The presenters will use a variety of interactive knowledge-building exercises and participative activities (e.g., what it is like to have a learning disability, how to create an accessible library facility) that motivate and engage participants.

Leaning Your Library's Materials Handling Workflows Program Las Vegas Convention Center
N231/233
Description :

Applying Lean concepts and tools to library materials handling workflows is a low cost, highly collaborative, and staff-empowering approach to improving how we get items from our shelves, from another library, or from our book jobbers and into the hands of our patrons as quickly and efficiently as possible. Lean involves training every person in the workflow to take responsibility for continuously improving and optimizing their environment. Lean tools can be utilized to make one time changes, but are most effective when the principles are adopted by the organization and incorporated into the culture. This program will provide an introduction to Lean principles and explain how these principles apply to library materials handling. The presenter will provide tools that will be put to immediate use through group projects. Plus, participants will leave with plenty of resources for transitioning their circulation and materials handling staff into a Lean team.
