Using Meaningful Gamification to Motivate Library Users: A Hands-on Workshop [$] Preconference/Institute, Ticketed event Caesars Palace
Roman I
Description :

Meaningful Gamification is the use of game design elements to help someone find meaning in a real-world setting. It is focused on using concepts like play, reflection, and engagement instead of rewards to engage users. In this workshop, Dr. Scott Nicholson, director of the Because Play Matters game lab from the iSchool at Syracuse University, will lead attendees through the process of developing library campaigns around reward-based gamification and meaningful gamification for a program, service, or other need. Attendees should come prepared with some aspect of a library that they would like to motivate patrons to engage with through game elements.

CANCELLED Creating Effective Videos and Screencasts: A Library Learning Video and Screencasts BootCamp (LearnRT) [$] Ticketed event Caesars Palace
Milano III
Description :

LearningRT is proud to present a practical learning delivery skills bootcamp that will enrich your trip to the 2014 Annual Sessions. Our facilitator, Royce Kitts of Washburn University, will show you how to create effective video learning content from the “why are we making this” stage to “this is how you make it” stage. As a participant, you will work your way through the entire process from project design and objectives to shooting, recording and editing your video. Along the way you will encounter best practices, learning object development skills and effective methods to promote your newly created learning objects.

You will be shooting your own movie, so you should have your own device capable of recording video, a laptop (with either Windows Movie Maker or iMovie,) and be able to transfer the video you shoot from your device to your computer. Participants will leave with an authentic hands on experience able to create projects at their own library. Royce Kitts is currently Coordinator of the Carnegie Education Library at Washburn University, former director of the Tonganoxie (KS) Public Library and past president of the Kansas Library Association.

Competencies and Education for a Career in Cataloging Interest Group Discussion/Interest group Las Vegas Convention Center

Description :

Competencies for the 21st Century Cataloger

“Cataloger 3.0: Competencies and Education for the BIBFRAME Catalog”, presented by Allison Jai O’Dell, Special Collections Cataloging & Metadata Librarian, University of Miami Libraries.

A new data model for resource description creates the chance to re-imagine cataloging expertise and explore new roles for the catalog librarian. The Bibliographic Framework Initiative (BIBFRAME) provides a linked data model and vocabulary for representing library resources based on the Resource Description Framework (RDF). BIBFRAME will launch the library catalog onto the Semantic Web, creating new opportunities in discovery experience design.

This presentation will cover competencies and education for a career in resource description and access by looking at possibilities presented by the Bibliographic Framework Initiative. As the library catalog becomes increasingly annotated with external data sources, metadata functions in a Web 3.0 environment will be collaborative and outward-facing. Practical considerations for the catalog librarian include building crosswalks between metadata schemas, implementation of the entity-relationship model, and development of the object-oriented next generation catalog. We will discuss participation in the Linked Open Data movement and facilitation of a user desire to mash and re-purpose library catalog data.

“Please send Catalogers: Metadata Staffing in the 21st Century”, presented by Jennifer A. Liss, Head, Monographic Cataloging Image Unit, Indiana University, Bloomington Libraries.

You’ve heard the phrase before: “traditional cataloging.” The phrase is most often used to identify the MARC-based work that catalogers perform, as opposed to the metadata work associated with digital objects. In truth, both kinds of work require the same intellectual engagement. Whether the task is cataloging printed books, providing access to digitized photographs, encoding literary texts, or describing earth sciences datasets, the underlying principles governing access remain the same.
At Indiana University, the tangible outcomes of embarking on non-MARC metadata are that catalogers learned new tools and standards while providing access to hidden and unique collections. This presentation will focus on the intangible outcomes of the enterprise, addressing ways in which those who perform traditional cataloging are uniquely positioned to make valuable contributions to the linked library data future. It will also offer preliminary musings on competencies for professionals and paraprofessionals performing metadata work.

A brief business meeting will follow the presentations. Draft agenda below:
1. Leadership: incoming chair and vice-chair(s). Contact Bruce if interested in future leadership opportunity.
2. Discussion of topics of interest for future programs
