5433class

  1. 1. ALA Session on June 23, 2007: Hey, what’s this “Library Think”?! Betsy Martens: No, but librarians do! The March of the Librarians Mr. Abram was our keynote speaker at OLA this year….
  2. 2. LIBRARY THINK = LIBRARIANS LEARNING BY DOING
  3. 3. LIBRARY THINK = Collection-building Classification-building Competency-building Communication-building Collaboration-building Community-building Creativity-building

  5. 5. New classification-building tools <ul><li>WorldCat Wiki </li></ul><ul><li>LibraryThing </li></ul><ul><li>Connotea, Cite-U-Like </li></ul>

  9. 9. New community-building tools <ul><li>Social network sites (Ning, MySpace) </li></ul><ul><li>Discussion groups (Web4Lib, too many other lists to list!) </li></ul><ul><li>Virtual spaces (Second Life) </li></ul>
  10. 10. Start with the sandbox approach: have-fun-with, no-fear-of-trying new things (even technology!) New creativity-building tools?
  11. 11. Collection-building examples from LIS 5433:
  12. 16. Betsy Martens: The point of this project was the Little Libby literacy comic strip: the imaginary library here was a bonus!
  13. 17. Betsy Martens: Great story-telling! (And this project is available for free through iTunes!)
  14. 20. Classification-building examples from LIS 5433:
  15. 23. Betsy Martens: Metadata guru Jane Greenberg leaves very positive comment on student’s blog: wow!
  16. 24. Competency-building examples from LIS 5433:
  17. 29. Communication-building examples from LIS 5433:
  18. 30. Betsy Martens: The class had no assigned papers, but did LOTS of assigned reading for “blog fodder.”
  19. 31. Betsy Martens: This blog was one of the most fascinating in the class, despite the author’s initial fears of trying it….
  20. 39. Betsy Martens: This student is still blogging AFTER class is over (and will probably use it during her portfolio defense)-- hooray!
  21. 40. Betsy Martens: As the instructor, I didn’t necessarily *get* this MySpace project design, but I knew that it would work for the target audience, if not for me. (And it obviously did!)
  22. 41. Betsy Martens: And this translation is from the blog of an MLIS student in Japan, commenting on one of our class project wikis!
  23. 42. Collaboration-building examples from LIS 5433:
  24. 43. Betsy Martens: The class started by contributing to wikis buillt by other people
  25. 44. Betsy Martens: We had two Wikipedia entries. This one survives with minimal change 6+ months later!
  26. 48. Betsy Martens: And some people then built their own wikis for others to use!
  27. 52. Community-building examples from LIS 5433:
  28. 54. Betsy Martens: This one was voted the most popular project in the class!
  29. 56. Betsy Martens: Running a virtual book group is just as hard as running one in the real world!
  30. 58. Betsy Martens: My hope was that the final project would not be thought of as just another class assignment, but as a real information resource for the future. This project clearly shows that mindset.
  31. 59. Thanks to all the students in KM/LIS 5433 for their help in making this presentation possible! (And for their suggestions about how to make next year’s class even better. We all “learn by doing” --- including me!) “ Doc Martens”
