      INF 330 INF505
    • Assessment 2
      Now it’s time review the next steps needed to help you develop and write Assessment 2.
      You have already done a lot of work towards preparing for this Assessment, because of the level of thinking you have undertaken in Assessment 1.
      Read Modules 5-8 as they provide you with critical information and points you MUST consider.
      Create a scaffold or thinking framework to guide your reading, research and preparation for the Assessment.
    • Key steps in the process
      Review the issues that have been presented by library users and staff of Haven River Library (HRL).
      Determine how they relate to HRL’s current programs and services.
      Determine the connection to demographic, economic and social issues.
      With this information determine what is important for HRL to respond to in the informational, educational and recreational needs of the user community.
    • Now you think you can start?
      This is where you begin your real research – here’s why!
      Assignment 1 has given you some practice in identifying and responding to programs and services to one group.
      Use the knowledge and skills you have used in that approach to broaden your understanding to all three groups in children’s and young adult services.
      BUT you will now have to refine and be succinct in how you present this – i.e. be able to include in your report the keyinformational, educational and recreational needs for all children & young adults.
      This knowledge will provide the foundation on which to build your report.
    • So what’s it about?
      Now read the task requirement and begin working on the key elements of your report.
      Your report must include:
      Your identification of the key needs and wants of the users in the community setting
      Your response to the issues raised by library users and staff in the context of the community.
      Your proposed framework/plan/strategy to revitalize HSL services and programs, including policies and management of services.
      Your suggested marketing strategies for implementing your proposed plan, and how you would prioritize them.
      How you will ‘sell’ your plan to main stakeholders in the council, and in the shire.
    • What else is important?
      Your report will take into account the changes and challenges that have been taking place in library services.
      You will specifically include the digital environment and technology-based culture of children and youth.
      Your Course Modules provide the fundamental information, and Sullivan provides more. Make good use of Sullivan.
      Then use quality resources (references) to enhance your work and ensure that your work up-to-date.
    • Can you be a realist?
      Haven River Library is not real. It doesn’t have a state or country. So you can use the information provided as the prime context. You don’t have to go out and ‘make up’ anything complex about this imaginary city and their community.
      The purpose of the report is to provide you with the opportunity to show your understanding of user-focused services and the considerations and issues that impact on managing these services.
      Be sure to include all the key considerations that are covered in Modules 6-8.
    • Make your report count!!
      Make sure you READ every part of the information set out in the Subject Guide in relation to this Assignment.
      Consider the Rationale and the Marking Criteria – they provide you with the essential parameters of the report.
      Make sure that you do not generalize or make statements based purely on anecdotal observations.
      The more you reference the better you can build a quality report for improved services for Haven River Library.
      Use the Forums to tease out ideas and improve your understanding.
    • Happy reading and research!!
