Transcript

  • 1. Library Services for Children and Young Adults<br />INF 330 INF505<br />
  • 2. Assessment 1<br />Now is the time to begin to plan and prepare for your first assessment task. <br />Read through the Task<br />Don’t panic<br />Create a scaffold or thinking framework to guide your reading, research and preparation for the first task<br />Then it’s time to sift through your readings so far, with your new target in mind.<br />
  • 3. Key steps in the process<br />Choose your target group or clientele<br />0-5 years<br />6-12 years<br />13-18 years<br />Make sure it is a public library or community service. School libraries provide different challenges that we are not covering in this course<br />Work out the developmental, educational and recreational needs of your client group<br />
  • 4. Now you think you can write?<br />This where you begin your real research – here’s why!<br />You need to be able to show evidence that you understand current trends in service provision for your group<br />You need to be able to explain how these trends are implemented, developed, constrained or enhanced by such key issues as finance, administration, community demographics, location, other services in the community etc.<br />You need to be able to use this research and evidence of issues to develop your response. <br />
  • 5. So what’s it about?<br />Now read the task requirement and see how it fits with your chosen target audience. <br />Programs<br />Services<br />Resources<br />Educational needs<br />Information needs<br />What are the issues, challenges, changes that you have discovered?<br />Discuss, using examples, to illustrate your explanation.<br />
  • 6. So what’s the point?<br />Think of this paper as your opportunity to really examine your chosen environment closely<br />Think of this paper as your opportunity to be passionate about your chosen environment<br />Show you understand what is happening and what could be happening – and why your suggestions would be important<br />Throughout it all, keep your focus on your analysis of the developmental characteristics and information needs or your client group to show you understand how your public library is/can continue to serve your chosen group in the best possible way<br />
  • 7. Can you be a realist?<br />Of course, your chosen client group cannot be served in exactly the same way by every single public library<br />Yes, you can be a realist!<br />Show you understand the ‘bigger picture’ – based on your readings.<br />But it is perfectly OK to talk about the constraints that can be faced by a public library, and ‘reveal’ some of the different approaches that some might be taking<br />Do include both physical and virtual environments – from things as different as homework club, gaming, facebook, databases, author visits, film nights, to SMS and RSS!!<br />
  • 8. Make your paper count!<br />Use this paper as a way to empower your opinion, and perhaps even inspire you to do something differently one day.<br />Make sure that you do not generalize or make statements based purely on anecdotal observations<br />As in all subjects, it is vital to use your readings, and other sources to shape your answer<br />The more you reference the better you can build a good case for quality services for your client group.<br />
  • 9. Back to the beginning<br />Now read the Assessment all over again<br />Start at the end – The Rationale.<br /> If you understand the Rationale then choose your client group, you can build the rest up on that sound base.<br />Now go back to the beginning – The task<br />Because you have your group AND your rationale for doing this paper, you will be able to identify and respond to each of the bullet points required in the response.<br />Images from 姒儿喵喵&apos;s photostream<br />
