O’Kelly Library Information Commons Bringing information to one central location
Why a Learning Commons for O’Kelly? “Libraries are changing…Library 2.0 could revitalize the way we serve and interact with our customers (Casey & Savastinuk, 2006)”
At O’Kelly, we need to provide dedication, and service that best serves the students! “It also attempts to reach new users and better serve current ones through improved customer-driven offerings. Each component by itself is a step toward better serving our users…(Casey & Savastinuk, 2006)”
OUR NUMBERS SHOW THERE IS A GREAT NEED! Surveys from last year show that there is an increased need for more technological assistance. Out of all the questions: textbook/reserve, general, reference ( how to site) technical (black board to inserting images in PowerPoint) an estimated 50 % of questions were technical, 30% reference, 20% general/directional.
Services provided: Windows Movie Maker *Microsoft Office Picture Manager Blackboard Microsoft Office Suite Scanning
Location How do you add a slide to PowerPoint? I need the red calculus book! Ultimate dream is to have one desk set apart from all other service desks. Causes issues and distractions when shared with textbook desk Case in point: reference joined with textbooks I am trying to start a blog I need a math book.
Not only does the area become crowded… It begins to turn into a maze for the one assisting everyone…
Staffing Our vision is to have individuals working the IC desk on a *trial period from 8 AM - 8 PM Commander Foster Yeager Poplar Ramos Grooms Wiggins *subject to change
Working together, as a team, in this endeavor will assure that great service is provided to our patrons!
