Reach Out and Teach Someone: Distance Instruction Through Online Workshops

Anjali Bhasin, Public Services Librarian, UW-Madison
Kaitlin Svabek, SLIS student, UW-Madison
Kayleen Jones, SLIS student, UW-Madison
Kelly Kar, SLIS Student, UW-Madison
Sarah Slaughter, SLIS Student, UW-Madison

 

Many libraries already offer great hands-on, drop-in instructional workshops for students, but what if you could offer these services online in real time? Throughout the past year, the staff of the School of Library and Information Studies (SLIS) Library have implemented a number of synchronous online workshops to serve the cohort of distance SLIS students. Created with the assistance of educators, these technology-driven workshops have provided opportunities for students in credit courses to practice skills that enhance their learning.

Come join the staff of the SLIS Library for a fun and interactive workshop where the audience will learn how to teach software, databases and more online in real time. The presenters will share a live demo, and they encourage the audience to bring laptops for the full experience!

Fugitives From the Discovery Layer: Business Sources, Primo and the Implications for Advanced Library Instruction

Kate Hinnant, UW-Eau Claire
Stephanie H. Wical,UW-Eau Claire

Data-oriented business sources do not yet fully integrate with Primo, making these sources of information invisible to business students who approach their research through our discovery layer. Library instruction is necessary to ameliorate the disconnect between business students and the key resources they need. Recent attempts to remove information from silos may have also created a need to briefly explain some of the limitations of the one-stop approach as well as share some basic technical (services) information with students. In this presentation, the problems that business databases such as Hoovers, Simmons OneView, and First Research present in interfacing with an object-oriented discovery layer such as Primo are discussed.

Because students at UW-Eau Claire receive first year instruction centered largely, but not exclusively, on the Primo discovery layer, when they return to do library research in subsequent years, Primo is their go-to resource. In order to teach business students how to do advanced research in marketing, management, accounting, or entrepreneurship, it is important to scaffold on top of their earlier library lessons a deeper understanding of both what Primo does and why some of their research needs are met elsewhere. Finally, the way this new understanding of business information can extend into a deeper understanding of the ACRL's proposed threshold concept  "Format as Process" will be discussed.

Unconference - new program!

Atrium

The unconference will give attendees the opportunity to discuss topics of interest or conference presentations in an informal setting over lunch. If you would like to suggest a topic, please do so on your registration form or just bring ideas to the unconference. Keeping with the theme of the conference, suggested topics should be loosely based on common fears experienced in the library profession and constructive ways to triumph over/cope with those fears.
