    6. 6. Coming together…without ever meeting!o Wimba-meetings, etc  Monthly meetings led by various members for updates and planning  Maintains consistency throughout campuseso Phone conferences  Quick and easy to touch baseo Common e-mail  If one person is out sick, has an emergency, etc, anyone else can cover their campus  Another way to ensure everyone gets the same information  Challenge—so many e-mails coming in, hard to keep track of what’s actually meant for you  Challenge—limited privacy
    7. 7. ILL and Committee Work o ILL-in network exchange of books  This opens up opportunities to have access to many different books without casing them in one location. Our collection is vast because of our ILL capabilities  All books and media can be shared between libraries o Committee Work (in collaboration with learning center coordinators)  Programming committee • Creates guides and ephemera for all librarians to use for holidays and themes , puts together presentations including outside resources for knowledge enrichment  Onboarding and development committee • Creates standard operating procedures for library and learning center, updating as necessary
    8. 8. Committee Work, Continued…  Web and social media committee • Manages social websites as well as library web site, developing new ways to reach out to students  Instruction committee • Creates Online Academic Guides for students to access information easier, tests LibAnalytics to measure library statistics • Works with instructors to insert library materials into the class structure for comprehensive learning  Assessment Committee • Works on ways to get valid information about student base and library needs
    9. 9. Modernizing to meet a new generation’s needs o Meebo/text  Two hours a week, alternating hours. Very easy to swap hours through e-mail. Very difficult to schedule weekends and evenings—which are high traffic times  Text is not widely used, though we do have a scavenger hunt that has people use it at least once to get a feel for it
