  • We have so much info at our fingertips. Think of library as a virtual space. The library and library website organize that information into easily accessible materials for students, faculty , and staff by sifting through Internet sources, presenting databases, determining users needs, and teaching Information Literacy and basic research skills.
  • In the old days library users had to get past the “keeper of the gate”Library of Congress digital archives: Library at ClaflinUniversity, Orangeburg, S.C. (1899?)
  • http://eden.rutgers.edu/~hsiroty/mpcourse/finalproject/wild_librarians.html
  • TThe printing press as technology that forever changed the organization of knowledge.
  • Clearwater Public Library System, Florida
  • The library as information connector linking resources to the people who need them. Primary functions:Organize this information Teach how to use it Creating AwarenessThe new academic library model focuses on meeting the needs of users through communication and collaboration.
  • English classes – basic research skills, writing resources and information literacyAny class by request, can be customized to fit the needs of a specific project. Library Assessment based on these meetings, material usage stats, and instruction sessions, feedback. Would like to make a brief introduce and promote library services to all programs at the start of each year. Need for basic computer skills mini-workshops Let me know and I can set something up. Perhaps a one-time class in one of the computer labs for these students.Electronic resourcesLibrary Guide link – please make suggestions, tell me what is needed, provide feedbackLibrary website- what links would you like to see there. Links can be tagged for specific programs, classes, projects, etc. Customization of resources for a class for your blackboard or a handout. working on basic handouts for English and health depts. Would like to meet 2x per school year. September and May (flexible) discuss additions to the print collectionresources lists for accreditations 2nd meeting to discuss outcome of 1st mtg.
  • The library website is designed to be the information hub. Ozark Campus Library sitePendergraft siteSaves time by going to the sight before googling.
  • Basic types of resources:Internet refers to free websites. There are many useful tools on the Internet today. It’s a matter of finding them. Databases – Amazon is a database, here it refers to electronic journal database subscriptions paid for by the university. These are the equivalent of print resources and should not be confused with a web or Internet resource. Students are unclear about this. Media- All kinds of it Access to Pendegraft collection Internet podcasts, videos, etc…Print: Full access to Pendergraft materials use (ILL request online) find materials not in collection and request thru Interlibrary Loan. Including films, audio, journal articles, booksPublic library links on website
  • Pulled out the most useful resources from the Russellville site. Links can be added and tagged however you want them, subject, class number, your name, etc. Basically 2 sections:Databases paid for AndFree Internet resources
  • Use this site at any time.More information here, a little more complex. Find links to the ILL forms, use the catalog, our books will be in their catalog soon.Many more databases and links than our.Can be overwhelming. Use their reference desk when our library is closed. Catalog SearchHow to use ILL
  • Pulled out the most useful resources from the Russellville site. Links can be added and tagged however you want them, subject, class number, your name, etc. Basically 2 sections:Databases paid for AndFree Internet resources
  • Our links are created by using a social bookmarking site. Clicking on a tag will lead you to a list of links to everything tagged with the same name. All the tags are in alpha order in a cloud with the bigger, bolder tags having the most links. We use delicious. There are others out there: diigo and zotero each having their own special niche.
  • How do these sites help you? They save you from the google machine. Google=literally millions of results many .com – want to sell you something, the info is biases .org is usually good but can be deceiving wikipedia is .org Pros: Wikipedia can be a good place for initial info, make sure to check their resources and internal links;good for basic explanationsCons: any one can edit it. Personal sabbatage, misinformation, hoaxesIncidents: politicians, journalists nailed for publishing false info from wiki, hoaxes (see hoax links on website, check out hoaxes on wikipedia LOL)Use with caution, verify facts. Handout: Evaluating a Website
  • Profession has evolved with technology.
  • So again: why not google?Why reinvent the wheel? Let the library or colleages sift through all the garbage out there. Use links provided by professional organizations. Most have an Internet presence which makes sharing info easier. Most groups collaborate in some form on the Internet. American Library Association is a leader in this respect. So sites linked to the library or other educational or professional sites have been checked for these points: authority, currency, purpose, validation of referencesCommonly trusted domains:.edu.gov.org.net
  • Ozark Campus website offersLinks for faculty that includeopen-source materials created by other educators and posted for the purpose of sharing resources.Text book publisher companion sitesLinks to web 2.0 tools such as social bookmarkingLinks to tutorials through the Library Guide
  • Tags found on our site. These are some of the tags on the website that are useful for faculty.
  • What’s the big deal? The main difference between web 1.0 and 2.0 is the amount of user-created content and social networking that takes place on the Internet and all the tools to do so with. Web 1.0 – All the rectangles represent all those who view content with the dark red being the generator of content. The light red is someone who responds to it.Web 2.0 shows much more interaction and user generated content. Web 1.0 – read email, read blogs, read websitesWeb 2.0 – read blog and leave a comment, read comments on your fb, post pictures and others leave comments
  • Other popular social networks:Youtube shares videos
  • Wikiversity consortium of academic resources at all levelsDelicious – social bookmarkingProfessional networks to share, discuss, and learnCollege 2.0 – social network for higher ed professionals who use web 2.0 in their teachingOpen source – pretty much any format of material that is published for sharing, many times refers to softwareOpen access – usually refers to published material available for sharing
  • Creative commons this is a wonderful thing. It’s ok to share. What do all these user created content sites have for you? Why do you care?
  • Search for material under the Creative Commons license using your favorite search engines.
  • Links to materials:Videos: learner.org contains video on demand of many pbs series Youtube contains many videos that demonstrate hands on procedures used in allied healthLectures: Academic Earth is a database of video lectures by world reknown scholars across the spectrum of studies.Npr has an enormous archive of podcasts of their shows and specials Slideshare is a social powerpoint sharing network. Like a youtube for ppt. These are formats that are natural to our younger students. They will be more likely to engage in information that is presented using a variety of media formats.
  • Professional development Merlot, Russellville, Faculty Link
  • Resources for black board You can do this:Creative Commons is an alternative method of registering your work. Much of the work under cc is created for sharing. Check fair use for copyrighted materials. I had a professor who posted entire children’s picture books in our course mgmt system. Use links off of the library site. You can ask me for recommendations of sources that are specific to your needs. Post items that will make your life and your students’ lives easier.Copyright Crash Course: http://www.utsystem.edu/OGC/IntellectualProperty/cprtindx.htm#topThis link can also be found through the Library Guide link on the library website under Research.
  • The library as information connector linking resources to the people who need them. Primary functions:Organize this information Teach how to use it Creating AwarenessThe new academic library model focuses on meeting the needs of users through communication and collaboration.
  • Info literacyStandards for IL from the Association of College and Research Libraries, a division of the American Library Association. http://www.ala.org/ala/mgrps/divs/acrl/standards/standards.pdf
  • Resources for studentsEach section contains tutorials
  • The Library Guide can be found on the Ozark Campus Library website. www.librarysherry.webs.comIn the Useful tools section you will find videos explaining how social bookmarking works and how wikis work. In the Faculty section you will find:This powerpoint. Links to:College 2.0Classroom 2.0Commoncraft Video23 ThingsExplore the other sections and see some of the powerpoints I have posted for students under the creative commons license.
  • Tools for helping students. Wolfram Alpha – Amazing new tool. Often called a search engine but it really is a computable knowledge base. You decide if it would be helpful or not for your students. This is an incredible creation and the possibilities are endless. Check this out. Link on library site. I will not promote it unless you do. But it’s out there.
