  • Academic Outreach 2.0 —for Business! Laurie Bridges, Leticia Camacho and Andy Spackman BRASS Academic Libraries Forum American Library Association Annual Conference June 28, 2008
  • Three Web 2.0 Tools Laurie Bridges
    • del.icio.us
    • Meebo
    • Library à la Carte

    • A social bookmarking website
    • A collection of favorites
      • Keep links and access them from anywhere
      • Share your bookmarks publicly
      • Discover new things
    • del.icio.us/bridgeslibrary (my favorite business bookmarks)
  •  
  • del.icio.us and Librarians
    • Share your del.icio.us URL at the bottom of your email signature
    • Add a network badge, link roll, or tag roll to your web page
    • Share your del.icio.us RSS Feed

  • Meebo
    • Instant message chat box
    • Embedded in all OSU library Web pages (not the catalog)
    • Subject specialist chat boxes embedded in appropriate Web pages
  • Timeline for Chat at OSU
    • January 2007 : Chatango IM box added to library home page.
    • April 2007 : Chatango presence expanded to most of the library web pages; usage shoots up from 199 in March to 394 in April. Anecdotal reports of out-of-state in addition to out-of-country users start coming from librarians staffing the queue.
    • August 2007 : Meebo widget replaces Chatango widget on library pages.
    • around October 2007 : Librarians start creating chat widgets and add them to their own web pages (ICAPs, SRGs, professional pages)
    • March 2008 : Meebo widget changed on library page to pop out—no more lost chats due to patron navigating away from page. Presented with a re-direct option (email or L-Net) when IM service not staffed.
    Info provided by Valery King, OSU Librarian
  • 4-Year Chat Trends for OSU Info provided by Valery King, OSU Librarian
  • Library à la Carte Library Information Made to Order
    • Needs assessment: undergraduates are assignment driven.
    • Hired a programmer to develop Library à la Carte .
    • Interactive Course Assignment Pages (ICAPs) highlight relevant library resources for a particular class or research assignment.
  • Library à la Carte ICAPS
    • ICAPs are dynamic web pages that integrate Web 2.0 features , chat and RSS feeds, etc. with traditional library content , such as catalogs and article databases. Using these pages, students quickly locate research tools and information.

  • Library à la Carte Features
    • Easy to learn interface with inline help and online documentation
    • Add and reuse modules for text, images, RSS, widgets, videos, chats, and custom search boxes
    • Drag and Drop interface to arrange content
  • What the Students Say
    • “ Many thanks for putting together that web site for our training and class. I have not only gone back to use it, I showed it to a professor and encouraged him to think of offering something like that to their students.”
    • “ I just wanted to say "Thank You" for this page for BA 352 . It's very useful and I just ordered a book through summit. :)”

  • Teaching with Cases
    • A natural fit for the business school
    • But Harvard-style cases are a bad fit for us
      • Self-contained
      • Application, not research
    • Invert the model to fit library instruction
      • Research sets the stage for application
      • Information literacy is introduced in context
